Simple Pleasures

Sorry for the lack of quality updates, life has had me running in circles, and going crazy! I’m still eating compliant to the WLC but I’ve been just “whipping things together” and “winging it” most days. I have a few posts lined up, but I’m going to apologize right now for going back to iPhone photos. I’ve just barely had time to put anything together, and when I want to take a few quick pictures for you guys, It’s usually nearby. The first thing I wanted to share with you, is a dinner I put together one night last week. I know it’s no longer summer, and hot dogs are not what you really think of when It comes to eating healthy, but in a pinch I really love Applegate Farms brand hot dogs (Specifically, The Great Organic Beef Hot Dog…and the Chicken variety as well) , and if you look at the ingredients (No nitrates, no junk, no preservatives, no sugar), they’re WLC compliant! So whether you consider this a “Processed Food” or not, they’re great for a no frills, super quick, dinner or a summer BBQ.

Ingredients: Organic Grass-Fed Beef, Water. Contains Less Than 2% Of The Following: Sea Salt, Organic Spices, Organic Dehydrated Garlic, Organic Dehydrated Onion, Organic Paprika, Celery Powder. Spices: Paprika, Cayenne Pepper, Coriander, Mace, Ginger, White Pepper

And buns? Who needs buns when you have some nice leafy kale! Add a little organic and WLC compliant mustard, or some Tessemae’s Paleo BBQ sauce and you are good-to-go!

As a side dish, I made a salad using Raddichio, Red Cabbage, Big Tomato Slices, Leeks, Capers, Olive Oil, and a squeeze of Lemon Juice. Simple, Raw and Delicious!

So, I’ll have some recipes coming up soon, but in the meantime, this is just a reminder that you can keep it really simple, and still be healthy, on those hectic nights that cooking is just not an option! Still better than eating out!
