Sassafras Restaurant Review – NOLA

So, I was running around on Thursday morning and I knew that I was not going to have time to get together something to bring for lunch.  This is almost a tragedy for me because there isn’t much around my job especially that’s quick and fits into my diet plan.  I was just going to go get some nachos or something.  I decided to message my coworker and ask had she brought lunch.  She had.  DANG! But wait…It’s 11am…she doesn’t want her lunch she brought.  So, we decide that we are going to run out of her and go get some lunch.  After quickly looking around because I want fish...

My Chicken Levels are Low

So, as you all know I’ve been on this Vegan-ish thing lately.  I’m not even sure what to call it because it’s not a challenge and it’s not a phase. I guess I’m just trying to incorporate some more plant-based items into my diet and not be so reliant on meat and my typical meals. I’m also trying to avoid falling into the Vegan rabbit hole.  I still like me a hot piece of chicken and bacon…I love bacon…every now and then.  However, once I haven’t had something in a while then I kind of lose a taste for it and don’t necessarily want to eat it again because of DIGESTIVE ISSUES. ...

Vegan•ish: Gardein Chick’n Sliders

Before doing this faux vegan/vegan-ish/really vegetarian with a side of pescatarian and bacon, I could not understand for the life of me the fake meat thing.  A few people I know have been vegetarian or light vegan so I’ve seen a few different options.  I would forever be like “nah”.  Now…I’m here to eat my words and this fake chick’n. So one day a couple weeks ago we had some faux snow down here in good ol’ Louisiana. So EVERYTHING was shut down.  This was one of my first weeks going full vegetarian/vegan for 5 days a week.  Yea I started off saying I would be vegan...

Vegan•ish

So, one of the things that I want to do this year in 2018 is to begin or continue really to lose the weight that I gained from my medication. So, if you don’t know I have a chronic illness and here are a couple of posts that you can read about that illness that I have already written. Secrets Revealed 2 Year Update I will be writing some more about what’s been happening lately with that so definitely stay tuned for that. However, one of the treatments for that illness happens to be steroids – prednisone to be exact. In case you don’t know anything about prednisone, know that...

Spinach Bacon Quiche

spinach bacon quiche

Check out the video for the spinach bacon quiche. It was adapted from this recipe: Original Recipe The differences are : 1. I use 5 eggs (this and number 2 help my crust from overflowing) 2. I use 1.5 cups heavy cream 3. I use only 1/2 pound of bacon (a whole lb is too much…i know i know…but eat more on the side) 4. I use frozen spinach (helps get more spinach throughout the quiche) HOPE YOU ENJOY! If you make the spinach bacon quiche let me know and send me pics....
