I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for quick, easy, and healthy breakfast recipes that can be prepared ahead of time for the busy work week. Well, I just found a delicious one from Health.com! It uses a sautéed mixture of onion, mushrooms, and red bell peppers with chopped parsley and basil; […]
In May I had a terrible accident, I fell and injured my whole right side of my body.
I was just outside mowing my 5 acres, and the next thing I know I flew off the front porch and was laying in the front yard and could not move.
Sprained shoulder, Bruised hip bone, Sprained knee, Sprained Foot and ankle. I also busted my nose.
After my fun ride to the Emergency room, I came home in excoriating pain. I was unable to even get up and go to the bathroom, needless to say I cried a lot. This was not me, this is not who I was. After about 2 weeks of bed rest I was able to move a little.
Day by Day I improved, its been almost 4 months now and I’m finally able to drive again, braking with my left foot. Doctor said it will still be 4 more months for a full recovery, even then I may still have to have some sort of knee support or a bit.
I apologize to the folks that were following me, Its been hard not to be able to cook and try new recipes. Hug Hugs too you guys.
YES, if your wondering if I gained weight the answer is YES. My family did the best they could, but the easy access food was the best. I’m getting back on track thank goodness, my sugar levels have been high and I’m extremely tired all the time. I think this has led to a lot of the depression I’ve been going through. But Its getting better. 🙂
I still get a lot of swelling in my foot and leg if I do too much, and I will be wearing a knee brace for a while …BUT, IM BACK!
NEW RECIPE COMING SOON
I’ve never cared for Philly Cheese Steak, and now I no why, It was the Bread. I took away the fat hoagie and I’m in love! This light but hearty replica is AWESOME!
Trying some simple easy recipes to help my Son on his quest for a flat Abs! Hes an active full time College student and this is going to be a huge hit with him.
1 Package (6 oz) Beef Steak fully Cooked (or your on leftover steak)
Romaine Large leaves (I used Butter lettuce,its what i had, its good too 🙂 )
1 Green Bell Pepper Sliced
1 Large Onion (I use Sweet onions)
1 Cup Portabella Mushrooms (sliced)
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Butter
Salt and Pepper
There we go!
Ok Guys, Grab a large pan or your Griddle and lets get cooking!
Lets Prep! Grab your Bell Pepper, Onion and Mushrooms wash and slice. Don’t wash Mushroom just wipe with a dry towel.
In a Large pan or Griddle (Im going to show both) turn burner to Med and add Oil and Butter. And toss in your sliced Veggie’s. NOT YOUR MUSHROOMS JUST YET!
Saute Veggie’s until tender and slightly brown, add Salt and Pepper, if they start to Cook too fast turn burner down and continue to saute.
Add your Mushrooms and Saute just a little more 🙂
Add your MEAT, Yeah look how simple!
Saute just a tiny bit more to heat the meat.
Ok Guys, now you can put your mixture into a plate and finish this next step in the same pan, but I love pulling out the Griddle.
Separate into large spoonfuls and turn Griddle on low, we are just going to melt the Cheese. Actually, you can melt the cheese anyway you guys want too, that’s really all we are doing at this step, but PLEASE DO NOT melt in Microwave it toughens up the juicy tender Steak.
Get your Lettuce wrap ready while cheese is melting.
Using a large Spatula gently lift and place on Lettuce.
Roll and ENJOY!
This Recipe makes about 6 to 8 Wraps depending on the size of your wrap. It stores really well and you can tote to work or school.
I hope you Enjoy! Take Care Everyone .
A year ago one of my favorite Breakfast to grab was a McDonald’s Burrito, I got really hung up on them for a long time. Every time I was out and about during Breakfast hours, a cup of coffee and a Burrito was the choice of this SuperMom before I headed home.

I am Re-Blogging this Wonderful Recipe from FITTOSERVEGROUP this is the BEST Cake I have found. Please enjoy and Serve with Low Carb Topping just like a Pound Cake. ENJOY I know I did!!
Sometimes you just want something buttery rich and I was wanting a pound cake. Back when I used to bake with regular flours I made a mean cream cheese pound cake. I remember distinctly the day my brother- in- law, Paul almost ate that entire cake. Well, I wanted to create that same rich flavor but low carb of course. I wanted my cake and to be able to eat it too!
I am very pleased with the results of this recipe. Enjoy and skip the carbs!
1 ¼ c almond flour
¾ c of swerve or other sugar substitute
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp of salt
3 ½ oz cream cheese
4 tbs softened butter
1 tsp of vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a mixing bowl mix with an electric mixer on high beat the butter with the sugar substitute until well mixed then add the cream…

One of the comfort foods I love to get when I’m at Olive Garden is Chicken Marsala. I decided to find a Low Carb way to enjoy one of my Favorites MY WAY low carb. This is a Simple Easy way to lean to re-love Chicken Marsala without all the Carbs the restaurants love to put in our food. If you love Chicken Marsala like I do, you’ll see this Easy fix is well worth a try.
In this recipe I did use a short cut sauce and I’ll explain why later, so we are not going to be making our Marsala sauce from scratch, well not exactly 🙂
What your going to need
Chicken Breast slightly pounded
1/2 Cup Crisco
2 Cups sliced Mushrooms ( I used Portabella)
2 Tablespoons of Butter for mushrooms
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Butter for Zoodles
1/2 Tablespoon Garlic Powder (fresh Garlic 2 Cloves crushed well).
Salt and Pepper
First lets go ahead and get our chicken ready cover with plastic wrap and pound lightly. Then place your large pan on a Medium high burner and add Crisco and heat.
Salt and Pepper Chicken and Add to HEATED oil.
Brown both sides. Turn over chicken pieces, and Brown slightly on both sides about 4 minutes each side. Then Remove from the pan set aside for a min.
Add Butter to Pan and use to deglaze your Pan.
Once Butter is melted and still on Med. High Add your Sliced Mushrooms.Incorporate and stir into Butter.
OK…here is my shortcut, now I preach about Man Made foods and making everything from scratch all the time, but, every now and then we find a decent substitute. Living were I do getting to a Liquor store is 45 min. away. So I found a Low Carb alternative thats not to bad at all.
I found this product at Walmart, its inexpensive and the taste is almost spot on. But do add the extra mushrooms as shown above.
Okee Dokee, that said lets move on.
Next after mushrooms are slightly Saute, lets add our Short Cut Sauce. Then add Chicken.
Lets get our Noodles ready while that is Simmering.
I have a cool little device I got at the store, I think its called a Vagetti or Zoodle. If you don’t have one of these GET ONE, but in the meantime you can slice your Zucchini very then.
In a Small Sauce Pan add 1 Tablespoon of Butter and 1 tablespoon of olive Oil, Garlic,Salt & Pepper.
Lets Plate and Eat, You guys enjoy the fresh Flavors and Low Carb LOVE IT!!!
