day 3/4

This new diet is dragging the week along either that or looking for jobs is dragging me along. Its exhausting. Anyway, I have new recipes to share.
As this week progresses, it has been a reoccurring trend to make larger than needed dinners in order to have leftovers for lunch. So luckily, we are both fine with eating the same thing for lunch as we had for dinner the night before. It is also a challenge to find snacks. I am about to take a trip to Trader Joes in hope of finding some snacks within the meal plan.  I want to start using the word meal plan or lifestyle change instead of diet. This isn’t an attempt to shed a ton of weight, it’s an attempt to cleanse the body of impurities from chemicals and processed foods and dependency on sugars and refined carbohydrates.
Let me skip right into dinner, since breakfast was fried eggs and grapefruit and until I can come up with a fancier way to photograph an egg, I am getting tired of looking at them. Lunch was also leftovers, so no one wants to see day old food. I also want to get some new dinnerware, preferably stark white to use for photographs…a future trip to Ikea seems promising.
Dinner Day 3: Zucchini and Beef
(I need to come up with some more appealing titles)
1 lb Beef, Ground-lean 1 medium Zucchini (raw) 1 cup Tomatoes, Petite Diced 1 medium Onion, Raw 1 Garlic Clove 1/2 tsp Oregano Leaves 1. Add the chopped onions and garlic, simmer until onions are tender 2. Add chopped zucchini, simmer until zucchini is tender 3. Add diced tomatoes 4. Add oregano, simmer for 2 or 3 minutes 5. In a separate pan cook chopped beef until slightly brown 6. Drain beef, then simmer beef and zucchini together until fully cooked Dessert: Yam and Cinnamon Swirl

This is a super simple recipe. 1 large yam 1 tbsp cinnamon 1 tbsp all spice 1 tbsp coconut milk 1 handful or raisins and sliced almonds 1. Peel and dice yam, boil until tender (10-15 mins) 2. Mash yam mix in spices and coconut milk 3. Place in bakeware, top with nuts and raisins, bake for 10-15 on 350 degrees Day 4: Lunch: Almost Waldorf Salad 1 cup spinach leaves/mixed greens Handful of chopped pecans, raisins 1 small sliced apple Oil and Vinegar dressing
