Day 1 and 2 recap…boring!

So I wish I had better tales from my 7 day anti-inflammatory challenge. So far my recipes have fallen a little flat. Next week I will have to put more planning into the meals. I will say I made some quinoa for the first time. I prepared it in chicken broth with some garlic. Delicious! Plus I like it gives me a protein boost. I purchased the Sprout’s brand which has 6 grams of protein per serving. My ginger and garlic chicken was a little bland. It might be better with some red pepper or black pepper. I made some lentil chili with spicy tomatoes. This was nice with the garlic quinoa. So far the only good thing is I have stayed away from the foods that are discouraged. No cheese consumption is a big victory this week.

Tomorrow is a new day! I still welcome any suggestions or recipes. I will try the walnut taco recipe later in the week. Keep you posted!

This maybe more difficult than I thought or in other words WTH?

Meal planning day 1. Trying to create meal plans for anti-inflammatory diet could be a bigger challenge. This is what I have so far…very little. I am reading conflicting opinions on eggs so if you know please share. In the meantime I am keeping eggs in the plan with an egg, spinach and homemade salsa dish. I found a recipe for mushroom and walnut tacos. I don’t know how excited about it I am but its on the plan for tomorrow. Tonight I have a spicy tomato, lentil, garlic and black bean chili in the crock pot. Quinoa seems to be a great addition so I made some in a chicken broth with a bunch of garlic. I plan to add that to the chili and possibly the walnut tacos. All in all I am on track for a week worth of unprocessed meals and at least a clean menu. I hope to include lots of anti-inflammatory ingredients. This may take a bit more planning. But isn’t that just life? We have to learn as we go. I wish you good health and better yet delicious meals.
