Look At All The Healthies I Ate This Week! 18-May-2013

 Fermented foods.  Sauerkraut and kombucha tea.


Hot tea every morning.  I like to make a few different batches with varying flavors.  My most recent pitcher was a pouch of  Republic of Tea's Organic Turmeric Ginger and a bag of Traditional Medicinals Organic Raspberry Leaf.    


...with raw and unfiltered honey.  Full of enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. 


Pasture-raised eggs, uncured bacon, green chiles, a sweet potato buried underneath sprinkled with Penzeys Spices Turkish Seasoning, all topped with hearty glob of guacamole. If I could've fit some sauerkraut in the bowl, I would've.



I finally made a fresh batch of homemade mayonnaise after months and months of being too lazy to do so.  I am not a mayonnaise eater, but I could disgustingly eat this stuff straight out of the jar with a spoon.  Smooth, silky, nutty, garlicky.  And oh so good!  And it makes a perfect base for a whole slew of dressings and sauces...


...like for a Banh Mi salad.  Brimming with vegetables and flavorful pork, I have a hard time getting enough of this.  The layers of fresh, clean flavors are spectacular for warm (what feels like) summer backyard dinners with the hubby.


I've even started a few of my days with a hot mug of homemade bone broth...


...and a snack of cucumbers sprinkled with sea salt.


Blue Ribbon Country Captain Chicken from Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People Who Love to Eat.  I am such a huge curry fan and Matt is not, so I get excited when we have curry seasoned recipes for dinner... this is one he really enjoys.  Yay, Melissa Joulwan for awesome recipes!


Many many bowls of Turkish Chopped Salad, another recipe gem from The Clothes Make The Girl.


Green Chile Sausage Egg Muffins with slices of avocado.  I was way too hungry to try and make this picture look pretty.  Camera in left hand, fork in the right... y'all are just lucky I didn't get any drool on the lens.


Grilled grass-fed beef patties seasoned with Penzey's Spices BBQ3000, topped with my homemade mayo mixed with roasted green chiles.


Kind of annoying how easy it is once I get started again... and I have to force myself not to wonder why it took so long to get back at it.  Whatever the reason, feels good to eat clean again.
