Ground Chicken Ginger Miso Soup

Here I am!  I have had a little too much fun food wise since Aprilish.  I went from my lowest weight to one of my highest.  No no no no no not my 202 lbs no no no BUT a well um 14 pound jump from my very lowest weight from 16 months ago.  In all fairness I didn't like my lowest weight.  Who wants to wear a size 2 anyways and live at the gym and next eat a cookie with your kids?  NOT ME!

However I am about 7 pounds above my goal goal maintain weight and I HATE IT.  So here I am back at it in an attempt to fit perfectly back into my size 4/6 and feel GOOD.  That's the most important part.  Not the number on the scale but how I feel in my clothes, in pictures, in my attitude, and most of all I want to feel healthy and stop eating take out pizza once a week.

I started Monday (after Sunday night pizza of course) I am on day 3 today and only 1 pound down which is discouraging.  I have been working out every day and eating as clean as possible and limiting carbs, fat, and sugar.  

I am on a mission because we are taking a family vacay to our GORGEOUS time share in Mazatlan in just a couple weeks.  In hindsight I wish I had booked it in February so I would have had all month to get the 7ish pounds off because it's VERY doubtful I can do that in two weeks.  #CRAP

So with all that being said here is a recipe I came up with the other day.
GROUND CHICKEN GINGER MISO SOUP

1/2 lb. ground chicken breast crumbled and cooked
1 container of Trader Joe's Miso Ginger Broth (regular would work ok but this has more flavor)
1 medium zucchini
8 mushrooms sliced
1/4 cup of cilantro
2 green onions
1/4 of a white onion sliced however you prefer
1 inch of fresh ginger minced
2 celery ribs
3 tbsp low sodium soy
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
4 dashes of sesame oil
4 dashes of asian hot oil

Mix all together and bring to a low boil then simmer for 30 minutes

I threw this together with what I have next time I want to add cabbage and bok choy

This pot is two servings I divided it evenly into two large bowls.  It's about 3 cups in total for serving and SOOOOOOooooooo filling for that amount of calories.

Top with additional cilantro and green onions if you wish and if you are anything like me... sirracha!

Enjoy!

Clean Albondigas

Oh white girl white girl white girl.  I'm pretty sure my newest love is re-vamping recipes.  I woke up from a dream about Albondigas (hussshhhh a few nights ago it was a super carne asada burrito covered in an amazing sauce... yes I often dream about he food I can't have).

What is it you might ask?  Small meatballs prepared in a Mexican, Spanish, or South American way in a SOUP.

I knew I had to revamp my favorite recipe and it turned out great.
 
 
Meatballs:
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • 1 lb. extra lean ground beef or turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 cup cooked brown rice
  • 12 cup cilantro chopped
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
Soup:
  • 6 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 12 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, cut in chunks
  • 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes (low sodium)
  • 12 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 12 cup cilantro
  • 1 large zucchini, sliced

 
Directions:
 
Make the meatballs first: Combine everything and mix thoroughly.

Form meatballs and roll between your palms.  It should make about 20 meatballs, set them aside.

In a large pot combine chicken broth, onion, celery, tomatoes and their liquid, cumin, oregano and cilantro leaves.

Bring to broil, and reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Drop meatballs in the soup (Make sure the soup is slightly boiling, the meatballs need to be cooked quickly).

Return to simmer and cook another 10 minutes.

Add zucchini and cook 10 minutes.

Serve with hot sauce.. if you are ME!
 
Note: If the pound makes 20 meatballs they are a little under 1 ounce of meat each

Party Down on the Farm

My twins and my youngest birthdays are only 16 days apart so instead of having our guests come to two parties I usually just go all out and do one big party.  This year was no exception with our farm themed party.










Potato sack races

Bobbing for apples

Our chickens and their coop














The cake was actually a Sesame Street cake, I had them leave off the Sesame toys and I added my own animals, fence and tractor.

Bet Ya Thought I Ran Away to Tahaiti

I am here!  Between my Husband going to school for a degree inEnvironmental Science, watching an Autistic little boy 3 times a week.  Little league and it's duties being never ending, starting soccer, Advocare and all my beauties and then.... um my new full time work at home job which started today.  I now get to juggle all the craziness with y'all.

There is NEVER a down moment especially with Hubs Band, softball, and season football tickets.  Oh wait... AND our 17 year old God Daughter has moved in.  While this will help me with work and work projects it also brings more food and mess.

I came from a family of one.  Yes really.  I used to see a mess and thought I have to clean that or my Mom will yell, or I have to do this so she will save her body and bones and live longer.  No joke.

So here is the actual point and question... Is it wrong to give all the kiddos chores?  I never got rewarded I was told:

Monday: Empty all garbage cans in the house and take can to curb
Tuesday: Dust
Wednesday: Vacumn
Thursday: Bathrooms

This started around age 6/7.  With my kids I am lucky to get a bowl in the sink and the day is just a tornado of mess and don't remind me of the piss smell in all three bathrooms.

So with my new job I feel I need to stick them to some responsibility, but I also go back to my childhood and wonder when do you start and how much?  For me and our life I was thinking maybe empty dishwasher, take out garabge if it isn't heavy, wipe down kitchen table or counters.  There is no hard and fast rule, but there also isn't a book on how much you baby them and how much you let them just be kids (especially for the 17 year old.)

Thoughts?

Food Food Feed Me!

The struggle while off challenge is real, I really should just stick to the burn phase, but my love or some carbs and cheese creates this urge to try out some new recipes and um add cheese.
These Flatout Wraps are SOOOooooooOOOO good.  Inside is greek yogurt ranch, 1 oz of avocado, 2 oz of Boars Head deli honey turkey #yum lettuce, tomato and well um Franks Red Hot Sauce Nom NOM NOM NOM!!!!!

Oh you know,  just a popsicle for breakfast. Mandarin Orange Spark and Vanilla shake makes the most mouth watering combination evah!!!!!!

And this is where my love of cheese comes in.  Yup that mozzarella melted on the 4 oz. of Whole Foods 90/10 beef and my bruschetta which is just tomatoes, garlic, balsamic, and fresh basil.  It's topped with TJs balsamic reduction which um if you don't have it… get in the car NOW.

Mama's banana thief.  TJs plain non fat greek yogurt, Costco quaker granola, Banana and a honey drizzle.  Yums!!!

When you find your local grocery store now sells Taco Bell mild sauce in a bottle you totes take a low carb tortilla and flip in around in some spray oil and use your crockpot salsa chicken and greek yogurt and make a sinful meal NON-SINFUL!

Gym time!  Sorry yup I DO love food more then most people.  True story. Kindergarten side pony braid for the W.

It's a biggie lunch.  You can be jealous that my son loves greek yogurt ranch and bell peppers.  I would so eat that lunch.  Bento Madness!

Adding in that cheese on Mission Carb Balance tortillas with salsa chicken and of course greek yougurt.

Yup the cheese again.  Oh man!  My Mrs. Dash extra lean taco meat with an ounce of sharp cheddar to the mix.
