Round 2, Whole30, Day 8

March 31, 2016

I ended up really liking the Chia Pudding on day two. You make it the day before, then refrigerate overnight. The first morning that I ate it, I was surprised at how thick it was, so I put it in the microwave for just a second, and ate it basically at room temperature. On day two, I heated it up in the microwave and ate it warm. Made a HUGE difference.

It’s high in points due to the Coconut Milk, and I haven’t done any shopping for Whole30 compliant Almond Milk, but I did like it enough that I will make it again, and play with different “add in” options.

Here is how I made this one.

Makes Two Servings

One Serving = 8 SmartPoints

Ingredients

3 T. Chia Seeds

3/4 C. Canned Coconut Milk (I empty the can and mix it well before measuring out 3/4 Cup.)

1 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp Cinnamon 

1 tsp Cocoa Powder

1 Banana, mashed

2 tsp Almond Butter

Directions

Combine the first 4 ingredients, mix well, cover and refrigerate over night.

The next day, heat up and add in the last 3 ingredients.

(I think you could make a base of the first 4 ingredients, and then get really creative with your “add ins”.)

(I added just a bit of Almond Butter to the top to make it pretty)

After working at the food truck, I spent a little time in the kitchen yesterday afternoon. A friend of mine suggested that I might like Soft Boiled Eggs, so I tried those yesterday. Yummmmm

Ingredients

Two Eggs

Boiling Water

Directions

Place eggs in a small pot of boiling water. Boil, uncovered for 6 minutes. Remove eggs from boiling water with a slotted spoon and place in a bowl of ice water. After 1 minute, remove eggs from ice bath and peel. Cut into the beautiful yellow yumminess.

I made Mike Breakfast Egg Muffins yesterday afternoon for his “to go breakfast” this week. I layered Bacon, Sautéed Mushrooms, Diced Cooked White Sweet Potato, then poured Whisked Eggs over the top. I baked at 350 for about 20 minutes. 

When I pulled them out of the oven, the bacon didn’t seem as done as I thought that it should be, so I set them in the skillet for just a few minutes until the bacon was just a tad crispy on the bottom. I was curious how these would taste, so I worked one in as my Afternoon Meal, along with a few Blackberries. I liked them a lot! I hope that Mike does too!

Eventually, I’ll try this combo again, then list it under my recipe links. Yesterday I was just hoping to like some of the food that I was making!

Dinner – 9 SP

Leftovers. I cooked two pieces of bacon, then I heated up some leftover Roasted Chicken, Potatoes and Carrots in the skillet that I cooked the bacon in. I crumbled the cooked bacon and added it in. Whipped Cauliflower on the side.
