DIETARY REBOOT – Days 29 and 30

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 29 and 30

Morning has broken on our final Whole 30 day. Looking back over the month, I can’t think of anything I would have done differently.  Variety in our meals made it all very enjoyable.  Good planning was key to keeping on track. I found the creativity of finding substitutes for some things (mostly condiments) challenging but there is a whole world wide web of exciting recipes to choose from. We never felt deprived.  There were a few times we would loved…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 21 and 22

Barely a week to go to the 30-day mark and we’re still going strong. As challenging as it’s been to create meals without dairy, grains, legumes and sugar, we’ve eaten really well and don’t feel at all deprived. Breakfast Breakfast Pizza Very simple to throw together. A base of hash browns, 8 eggs, crumbled bacon and chopped sun-dried tomatoes. About 30 minutes at 375 ° and it’s ready to enjoy. Lunch Chicken Lettuce Wraps Sliced grilled chicken topped with Dijon…

PORK and MUSHROOM STEW

PORK and MUSHROOM STEW

I am one scattered Galley Kat these days. It tends to happen to me each year around this time when schedules (holiday parties, and a rather large family gathering), obligations (finishing off the last of our Power and Sail courses and meetings) and what-I-would-rather-be-doing collide (my list is long). So I started making lists which helps somewhat. Shopping lists, what to cook and when lists, which all has to be planned within space available lists. And within all this planning…

ITALIAN SAUSAGE and TOMATO RISOTTO

ITALIAN SAUSAGE and TOMATO RISOTTO

Risotto is one of my all time favourite dishes for so many reasons. It’s the ultimate comfort food…easy, creamy and flavourful. The base ingredients keep so well in our tiny galley…rice, garlic, onion, chicken broth and parm. Easy to throw together…gather the ingredients and 20 minutes later…pure Italian heaven! With a few additions the basic recipe can be transformed into a multitude of options. This next recipe inspired by Smitten Kitchen by way of Martha Stewart seemed like quite a…

LAST of the LINE TOMATOES

LAST of the LINE TOMATOES

Last can of tomatoes… Last onion… My little alcohol stove filled with the last of the fuel… And this Galley Kat has run out of creative ideas… …almost…   I made a batch of my Two Ingredient Tomato Sauce for a simple pasta supper tonight… …but being ever conscious of time and stove fuel economy, I doubled the amount of pasta we needed. This gave me about 4 cups of cooked pasta and about 1.5 cups tomato sauce. To the…

EASY BOAT POZOLE

EASY BOAT POZOLE

Our steamy summery weather has turned to chilly and rainy which always seems to require something warm and comforting in our bellies. This vegetarian version of boat pozole was made with on-hand ingredients, topped with eggs to give us a bit more protein. The leftovers were equally as good the second night with some leftover shredded grilled chicken added in. Adjust your spices to accomodate your personal tastes (we like it spicy) and you have a super easy complete meal…
