Week 2 & 3 Organic Menu

Where’s the chicken?

I fell a little behind on posting the meals I’ve been eating to the organic menu. Below are a few things I came up with all by myself in addition to 1 item I made from the Micronutrient Miracle book. I haven’t spent too much time trying to make anything from the book because a lot of the recipes call for too many ingredients that I just don’t have stocked in my kitchen or use on a regular basis. I’ll try to cook more recipes from the book so I can share how I like or dislike them.

It’s been chilly outside so I made some chicken soup. It didn’t come out too great. I think I needed to add more salt. I tend to not add enough when I cook even when I do a taste test. This was pretty basic: boil chicken in pot of water with onion, garlic, salt, pepper. The veggies I added included russet potato, carrots, zucchini and squash.

The below is a picture of the Cauliflower cheesy hash browns recipe that is in the book. I will say that the recipe was good however you totally know you aren’t eating hash browns. In addition I think the taste of garlic is a bit too pronounce as cauliflower really absorbs the garlic flavor and in my opinion is a bit much. This is perfect for those days that you really want something like rice or bread because it’s filling and the cheese makes it that much better. I don’t know if I made it right though, mine was a little mushy and burned a little while cooking. Is it supposed to look like mush or like a hash brown patty? I don’t know.

Week 2 & 3 I ate a lot of chicken and below is oven baked chicken wings that I made a dry rub for using pepper, salt, paprika, and cayenne powder. The Sweet potato and squash were grilled with a little salt and olive oil. Came out pretty good. I don’t have an exact recipe for the rub but I baked the chicken about 45 min on 350 degrees uncovered.

There’s nothing like a nice juicy cheeseburger! I had mine without a bun and piled on the spinach leafs for a tasty salad. Simple dish but super yummy!
