Chicken & Waffles Are Back!

 

I love the Nature’s Path Wildberry Waffles for making this combo….it’s so good! This time I used some frozen cranberries and a little stevia to make a cranberry sauce, and dark meat chicken, with a side of peas:

A little simplicity of HD Strawberry ice cream for dessert. :)

No Pasta Lasagna

 

 

I came across this recipe on T-Nation for a no pasta lasagna that I just had to try. Lots of veg, meat sauce, lots of cheese. :)

Chicken & Waffles with a Homemade Blueberry Sauce

DSC_0024

DSC_0018

  • 2 waffles (I used Nature’s Path GF Wildberry)
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2-1 c. frozen blueberries

Make the blueberry sauce while the chicken breast cooks. I pan-cooked mine.

To make the blueberry sauce, add the blueberries to a skillet on medium heat. As they start to thaw and release their juices, turn the heat up to medium-high and cook until reduced and a thick sauce forms.

Toast the waffles. Place chicken on top and scoop the blueberry sauce on top of both.

Amy’s Indian Matter Paneer

 

I’m back with another new product to me. Ethnic food, to me, is way better than most American foods (though I am a lover of a good burger). Not many of my friends are fans of Indian cuisine, so in a jiffy I’ll pick one of these up and pop it in the toaster over, cook up some chicken breast or thighs, and make a meal of it.

The flavor was great, and I’d never tried paneer cheese before after being vegan for awhile – I loved it! All of the Indian meals I’ve tried have been spot on in taste, texture, and quality. I highly recommend you trying one of these. I usually look for them to go on sale since it doesn’t have much protein and I add some on.

My plate: the above meal, plus okra pan-cooked in Indian spices, and some chicken.

Are you a fan of Indian food? What’s your favorite dish? For vegetarian options, I love the Baignan Bartha (eggplant), Bhindi Masala (okra…don’t knock it ’til you try it!), and Veg Jal Frezi.

Turkey Burger + Amy’s Shepherd’s Pie

When I find products I wouldn’t normally buy at the store marked down, I’ll usually pick it up to see if it’s worth adding to my grocery list once in a while.

I don’t eat much frozen prepared foods but when I do it’s usually something like Amy’s Indian meals, which are awesome.

This guy was on sale, so I figured why not.

It was alright. Not something I’d buy on a regular basis, and I probably won’t buy it again. I didn’t like the mashed potatoes on top, but the vegetables underneath were good. Just reminded me too much of instant potatoes (maybe they were?)

The real highlight of my meal was a turkey burger topped with Applegate Farms organic cheddar cheese and some sautéed onions. Try it!

Do you eat many frozen/prepared foods?
