And yet I would not have it any other way. There's such joy that comes from exploring new ground in cooking, or seeing a loved one smile when they taste the first bite of a new dish. And I am so thankful for the abundance of flavors, techniques, and recipes in existence. As we embarked on Atkins this week I found this to be true. Thanks to Ms. Google and my cookbooks our first week back on Atkins induction was exciting and encouraging. This is what we had:
|Blackened Shrimp Salad|
Snacks: Sugar-free chocolate and vanilla pudding, ham and cheese roll-ups, zucchini and red pepper sticks
Lunch: Southwest Chicken Salad, Blackened Shrimp and Asparagus Salad
Dinner: Thai Basil Chicken and Cauliflower "Rice", Daisy Martinez' Pork Loin and modified Boricua Slaw (from her cookbook Morning, Noon and Night), Hot Wings with celery sticks and Cheesy Cauliflower Tots
I am looking forward to a new week! All new recipes and dishes, right down to snacks! I was terrible with pictures this week but I will be snapping photos all week long! I'll post an update next week!
