I thought I would take a minute to show you guys some things that I’ve been eating! These are all recipes from a book by Dr. Amy Myers called The Thyroid Connection. While I’m not following her 28 day meal plan (I don’t have time to cook that much!), I am using her recipes for all of my dinners and most of my lunches. Each meal I make serves four, and some serve six. So Matt (my husband) and I will eat it for dinner and then we each will eat it for lunch a couple of days later. So I’ve only been cooking for dinner, which has been nice. And when I have time, I will prep some of the items on the weekend so they don’t take as much time during the week. So far, everything I’ve made hasn’t taken long to cook, it’s just the cutting of veggies and such that seems to take the bulk of the time. Oh, and I should also say, I’ve actually really liked the majority of the recipes, which I’ve kind of been surprised by, I must admit! Below are a few that we’ve had!
Citrus Shrimp over Red Leaf Lettuce Salad – We really liked this!
Pineapple Taco Salad with Grass-Fed Beef – This was one of my least favorites, only because I felt like it needed dressing or more oil. I think if I made it again, I would actually crush some of the pineapple and throw it in a blender with some olive oil and apple cider vinegar to make a dressing.
Pear and Parsley Smoothie – I was VERY surprised by this because it tasted so good!
Apricot Chicken Salad – this did not call for a tortilla or wrap but it was really good on one! I used a coconut wrap from Thrive Market. The ingredients for the wrap are coconut meat, coconut water and coconut oil so it’s Stacy approved!
Turkey Meatballs over Spaghetti Squash with Tuscan Kale Pesto – another really good one but I also added a little extra olive oil to my “spaghetti”.
Seabass and Cucumber Seaweed Salad – so I found out with this that what kind of seaweed you get actually matters… definitely make sure you use wakame seaweed!!
Blueberries and Cream Smoothie
Sweet Potato and Green Breakfast Hash – hands down my favorite!!
Mint Chocolate Brownies – these are actually not from Dr. Myers book, I got this from one of her social media outlets, just can’t remember which! These have become a staple! I get one each day as a dessert. 😊
Also, not pictured but a few other things that I’ve loved:
Grass-fed Beef and Veggie Breakfast Scramble
Coconut Chicken Curry (I had never had Curry and this was SO GOOD)
Salmon with Zucchini Noodle Pesto and Garlic Butternut Squash
Wild-Caught Cod with Sage Parsnip Mash and Asparagus
Greek Lamb Burger with Coconut Tzatziki and Zucchini Half-Moons (I was so surprised at how much I liked this!! I’ve never had lamb before and this was really good! The coconut tzatziki sauce was so delicious!)
I will post some more recipes as I go through the 10 weeks. I’m also going to use some recipes from The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook by Mickey Trescott, NTP. There are several in there that look really good! I look forward to trying new things throughout the 10 weeks! And I can’t wait to share them with you!
