    Heads up, we love the tuna recipes for lunches. Inexpensive and easy!

    Phase 1: Tuna, Green Apple and Spinach. I added brown rice pasta and made it into a pasta salad instead of doing bread or a wrap since I’m gluten free and can’t have the sprouted grain products. YUMMY!
    Phase 2: Tuna Salad recipe in the book is pretty good! Served on a bed of spinach!



    day 3 week 1 (p2):
    beef strips(cut up steak) and mixed greens salad, with red bell pepper, and sauteed asparagus in balsamic vinegar. Delicious!



    I love soup! These are 2 of my favorites:

    6 c. homemade chicken stock
    1 rib celery sliced
    ½ of an onion, chopped
    3 handfuls of fresh spinach, arugula, or other green leafy vegetable
    2 tbsp. fresh flat leaf parsley
    1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
    4 oz. can diced green chiles
    8 oz. sliced mushrooms
    8 oz. cooked diced chicken
    Salt & Pepper to taste
    Cook onion, mushrooms and celery in stock until crisp tender. Add rest of ingredients and simmer for a few minutes.
    Note: Well-seasoned stock is important for good soup.

    Onion Soup
    Slice a large onion and carmelize it in a soup pot, adding beef broth as needed. When the onion is soft and brown in color, Add 4-6 cups beef broth. Eat this whenever you need something to warm you and fill you nicely. Season with salt & pepper to taste and any other spice that you like.
    I am still working on a killer crockpot recipe for Phase 2.



    P3: Chicken taco packets
    1- 6 oz chicken breast (this is my portion, yours may be different)
    1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips (or any kind of pepper)
    1/2 red onion, sliced
    2-3 tbsp of a sugar free salsa
    1/2 avocado sliced
    mexican seasonings (cumin, chili powder, cilantro, garlic) to taste
    salt & pepper to taste

    Rip a piece of tin foil 3 times the size of the chicken. Put the chicken breast in the middle. Put the onions, peppers, salsa, and seasoning on top. Fold up the chicken and contents. Put on a baking sheet as sometimes the chicken in so juicy it leaks. Bake on 400 for about 15-20 minutes or until chicken is done. When done baking put the avocado on top and enjoy.
