Finding new ways to eat the same foods can be difficult. My mission continues. The struggle is real.

The First Seven Days

The First Seven Days

A few of the meals from the 17 day diet. All prepared by me. You have to be extra creative when you eliminate most carbs and sugars. 9 days to go!

Roasted Cauliflower and Broccoli; Grilled chicken with Dijon mustard

Season chicken breast or chicken tenders with 21 seasoning blend from Trader Joe’s or any other blend (no salt) and grill on Panini Grill or George Foreman grill or similar 4-5 minutes. The vegetables can be marinated beforehand. Use 1 to 2 TBS of EVOO ( I use garlic EVOO) and the seasoning blend. Shake to mix in a plastic baggie. Cook in 400-450 degree oven for 15 minutes aprox. You can use pretty much any vegetable that you like. I suggest onions, brussels sprouts, green beans, peppers, zucchini. Use Dijon Mustard as a dipping sauce for the chicken. Because no salt is used, it gives the chicken enormous flavor.
