Elimination Dinners: Day 6, 7, 8, and 9

14 Mar

I’m slacking on these food posts, but I’m giving myself a free pass since we’ve been dealing with some sickness. Hopefully we’re on the mend around here.

Day 6 dinner is probably my favorite I’ve made since starting this elim diet. I’m craving mexican food like mad, but since eggs and corn are on the no-no list, finding tortillas is pretty much impossible.

I’m not a huge fan of lettuce unless it’s covered in salad dressing, but I’m finding this diet is helping broaden my horizons, and I used lettuce leaves as my ‘taco shell’. I loved it!

I call this chicken salsa tacos. I put chicken breasts, taco seasoning, salsa, and black beans in the crockpot. I then shred the chicken when it’s done cooking and add it back in the mixture. I made brown rice with some spices and scooped the rice, chicken salsa, more salsa, and an avocado sauce I made using avocados, chicken broth, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper, and lime juice into the lettuce leaves. It was delicious!

Day 7 was rotisserie chicken and homemade fries again. I didn’t figure I’d need to take a picture of the meals I’ve already done.

Day 8 The flu found it’s way to Brandon so I scratched what I had originally planned for dinner for something easy and fast since Lakyn and I would just be eating it. Spaghetti with brown rice pasta. Again.

I know I’ve got two repeats as far as meals go, but if it works in my diet, it’s good, and it’s cheap, I’m not above repeating meals. Sorry peeps.

Day 9 I threw a ham in the crockpot with some brown sugar. Made some garlic mashed potatoes, and added some green beans. Oila! Dinner is served.
