Sharing

At my home, this is a weekend typically filled with celebrations and fun with family and friends.  Typically, this means food. Jar because I am being more careful with my food choices doesn’t mean I need to bring “diet” food!  A few of my favorites… Janeva’s buffalo chicken meatballs.  Brought those to a potluck.. 150…

Rhubarb…

If you have been in IP any length of time you have heard of Janeva and her miracle cookbook.  You also have heard af strawberry-rhubarb compote. In the 3 years, since I learned about IP, I have learned that I need to be willing to try new things… but rhubarb took me a while to…

Operation: make it easier has begun!

Pulling it together After a really challenging week, I am making a date today to clean out all the crap. We have had company (including a bored teen), medical stuff, long hours, short fuses. My house needs to be put in order. I am starting with my refrigerator. I know I need to go to…

Light and Fresh

This was sooo good.  I made Janeva’s pizza crust on page 81.  I sliced up a zucchini and some tomato… took the cold veggies and mixed with Walden Farm Ranch… placed on top of my crispy crust… This is one IP packet and 1tsp olive oil…if you don’t have the cookbook… you might want to…

Sweet nibblets!

Seriously… rhubarb… my best friend!  If you haven’t tried it, look up Janeva’s recipe for strawberry rhubarb.  Page 45!  I didn’t have the strawberry sauce but I had blueberry Walden Farms Syrup! I made vanilla ice cream with premade vanilla, Walden Farms Marshmallow dip and ice… combine the soft serve ice cream and rhubarb… all…

Working for the weekend

Today I am taking advantage of time.  It’s a gift I don’t often appreciate.  I have a fantastic boss, and she made me promise to work on my work life balance.  So, I worked hard all day and was done in a reasonable amount of time… so I found a little extra time to start…

The color of life

Lots of my family and friends tell me they hate veggies.  I get why my brother feels that way.  When we were growing up a salad was ice berg lettuce with ranch dressing… big blah bowl of colorless blech. Today I pulled out my salad and someone stopped and said wow, that’s pretty.  I would…

The gift of prepping

I know it’s only been a week… and I know I am a hormonal train wreck… but for the first time in a while I feel good. It doesn’t matter what the scale says… I see a lot of posts about people on their second+ round. You get back on and it’s harder. That is…

S’More please

I love s’mores. I was feeling the need to cave and eat marshmallows. I opened my cupboard (just to stare because I don’t have marshmallows!) and found a jar of Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip. Hmmmm… I have premade vanilla drink… hmmmm I have sugar free vanilla syrup. HMMMMM!!! I poured the bottle of IP vanilla…

Ideal Protein Mushroom Risotto

I had no idea what to expect… but I knew I wanted to try… I really like it!  It is a tad salty, but it could be how I made it. I placed the package of mushroom risotto into a microwave safe bowl.  I added 1.5 ounces of water and 1 ounce of fat free…
