Although I had a few complaints about the recipes and level of mushiness I did not hate these past two weeks. I discovered half a dozen or more recipes that I would keep in my repertoire, gained a new appreciation for smoothies, and really broke in my vitamix. I also ate way more vegetables than I usually would and significantly cut down on my consumption of processed junk. But unfortunately, I will have to take a hiatus from the book as my time off from work has come to an end and my schedule became very tight and I am not ready to work and do all this cooking/meal planning. So enjoy the last Anti-Inflammatory Diet in 21 post. Continue reading “The Anti-Inflammatory Diet in 21 Review: Week 2 Day 6 THE END”
Today is the 4th of July and I did a BBQ for dinner so the Homemade Avocado Sushi will have to be skipped until another time so today’s post will not be that new or interesting.
Yesterday I may have fallen off the wagon and ate
bad delicious foods…but today I got back on and I am glad I did because otherwise I would have never discovered make your own cup of noodles.
On to week 2! Since I had some of the pantry items from week 1 already purchased my shopping list for this week was not as long (or expensive).
I think I am in white flour withdrawal. On the bright side I have eaten more vegetables in the last 4 days than I have probably in the last 2 weeks I am just waiting for those vitamin endorphins to kick in.
I really like cookbooks – all cookbooks. I especially enjoy ethnic and international cookbooks. They are my favorite especially the really nice ones that make it feel like a culinary travelogue or a lesson on food anthropology. I love reading those types of books and making dishes that to me are exotic like authentic Persian Rice dishes, a pickled tongue, etc.
There has been an emphasis in weekly meal planning and a proliferation of special diet books flooding the market lately. I don’t mean like the weight watchers recipe books my mother still has from the 80’s on her shelf. Books that are not so much for weight loss but to highlight a specific way of eating – clean eating, less processed, allergy free, etc…
This was a first for me both in trying it and making it. My neighbor requested it so I thought I would give it a go. I am not sure whether or not it was authentic as I never tried it but we all liked it! It was not too hard to make but it did take a while because I made my own chicken stock. This recipe is enough for like 10 people so plan for a lot of leftovers.
