A visit to Hawaii is not complete unless you have a meal of Kalua Pork.
Kalua literally means to cook in an underground oven.
The Hawaiians loved cooking in the ground … they would build a fire using kiawe (mesquite) wood in a dirt pit called an imu. This pit was usually about 6 feet long, 4 feet wide and 3 feet deep. The pit would be lined with rocks and vegetation, then the meat would be salted and placed on that, then more rocks and vegetation and then covered with wet burlap and then sand/soil. Then you left it alone and […]
Roasted veggies … yum.
What is it about roasted veggies that make them so delectable? Everyone probably already has their favorite way to roast veggies, so why bring another recipe into the mix?
Well, we have a niche here with the hCG Protocol. Most people consider the diet to be boring, and I am here to tell you that this just isn’t true. There is so much you can do to kick food up several notches so that P2 can be exciting and delicious. Far from boring.
Roasting your veggies is a great way to bring out the sweet that is trapped inside […]
I love food that takes forever to eat. This is one of those foods.
Because of all the crunching you have to do, even just a small amount takes forever to eat. It’s perfect if you are trying to do a raw day, and let’s not discount the fact that it’s pretty food. Look at all those colors!!!
Pretty food that tastes good, raw, and high fat…can’t beat it. Oh yeah.
Just a note. The bacon is supposed to be put on the slaw just before you eat it, it will have a tendency to get a little soggy if you don’t. The […]
In case you haven’t noticed, this week’s recipes are about cabbage and apples. I had a plethora of both that I needed to use up.
The original of this recipe was to be made with bacon instead of chicken. I opted to try it with chicken, modifying some of the ingredients.
In retrospect, I think it would be better with the bacon, although with the chicken it was most tasty!
As I was enjoying it for lunch, something came to me … it was a memory of a scene from The Brady Bunch […]
Like I mentioned last week, I am on a pound a day of raw kick. I know this is a stupid time of year for it, because in most places, it’s cold.
There is never any rhyme or reason for what I do, when I do it. HA!
I have been scouring my archives, and the internet to find recipes that enable me to get this in with no muss, no fuss.
This recipe calls for 2 cups of cabbage, the weight on that is about 5 oz, then for the apple, which mine was about 5 oz – so for just one […]
On P2, there is no other better meal.
It’s filling. It’s easy. It’s delish.
And curry? Let’s not forget about the delish factor of this spice. However, I do have to concede that people either hate it or love it. My ex-husband totally hated it and couldn’t stand the smell so I never used it in the house. If I wanted curry anything, I had to go elsewhere. ::giggle::
This makes an unruly amount of soup. It can actually be split into two servings, so you can eat one half for lunch, and then the other half for a mid-afternoon snack. HA!
Curry Chicken […]
One thing I hear over and over again while I coach is this:
I need easy to make ahead meal ideas for P2.
Biz to the rescue!
This is one of those recipes that you can make the night before and it stays well for a day or more. It’s an all in one meal so travels very well. It takes only 5-10 minutes to prepare so you don’t have that excuse that something takes too long to make so I had to stop at a drive thru to eat.
Top it off? It’s tasty!
And one more thing? At my local Winn-Dixie […]
People sometimes get the words SASHIMI and SUSHI mixed up.
- Sashimi: Raw meat, most often fish.
- Sushi: Vinegar and sugared rice with other ingredients, usually fish, and maybe some vegetables and most often wrapped in seaweed
Way back when I did a round of Phase 2 using all raw foods, sashimi was almost a daily occurrence, and I have to say that the round was one of the best rounds I ever had on protocol.
There are those of you out there that get a little grossed out with the thought of raw fish in general, sorry for that, you […]
