Has anyone else seen Hungry Games? No, not the movie. It’s a new Richard Blais show on Food Network. The show explores the games our brain plays on us when we are craving and eating food. It’s light and accessible, but still really interesting.
After watching the latest episode: Burgers, I wanted a burger. Because: tv.
(I did not fall for the pizza and ice cream episodes! I was strong!)
I’ve eaten stuff in these mini romaines all week. Tacos, shrimp, burgers, tuna. They’re brilliant. Way to go, Costco. Way. To. Go.
The best thing I made this week! It was so good!
Spiralized Teriyaki Zoodles and Shrimp.
While I did really enjoy it and will make it again, next time I will reduce the amount of sesame oil. I also sauteed my veggies in bacon grease, as I needed more calories. I don’t use “cooking spray” for anything. Many of her recipes are classified as “light”, which is great as they are veggie heavy, but I need more calories if I’m going to be lifting heavy things. OH..hahaha…I used 1/2 pound of shrimp. Not “3-4” . I’m from the coast, we don’t eat just “3-4” shrimp.
Chicken sausage from Costco, horseradish mustard and jalapeno kraut. Love it when one of my pics will be “ok” and then the shit rolls around and mustard falls off and gets all over the broccoli. Yay. I don’t even care if the pic looks like crap.
They’re pretty good.
Excellent soft boiled eggs, 1/4 sweet potato with coconut cream & cinnamon.
I went to get sushi with my cousin. The waiter recommended this tuna salad and it was excellent! Tuna, squid, crab, avocado, cucumber, more veggies, seaweed…spicy chili.
(sorry for the dark pic. Restaurant was dark and I wasn’t about to use a flash.)
(Oh, and I totally brought coconut aminos so I wouldnt have to use soy…)
(pps: the waiter was excited about the coconut and said, “I love that stuff!”)
Obviously this isn’t everything I’ve eaten. Just the highlights. My staples are salads, sides of bacon with a plate of veggies, and avocado dip.
I think that’s it! I’d say it was a pretty good food week.
