    Yesterday’s dinner was Cajun chicken and shrimp pasta except I just ate the meat. Pic is bfs plate. Todays meal is Saag Paneer (Spinach purée with cubes of Indian cheese) Didn’t know what to eat it with so I baked some tortillas and ate it like a tostada.

    It’s stuffed with ground beef, carrots, peas, eggs, and olives. And the yellow and red sauce is a spicy cream I made from two kinds of Peruvian peppers

    Almost went out to a Salvadorean restaurant this weekend. Ordered the chicken stew and indulged on some rice. Not feeling guilty anymore about it!

    Kicked off this weekend with more meat. Made oven roasted chicken with beet potato salad and Peruvian stuffed potatoes. Ate one piece of chicken, no salad or rice and almost one stuffed potato.

    So my vegan journey hasn’t been going good 😅 I haven’t met my protein goal since I’ve started so I bought a plant based protein powder to help. My nutritionist said she thinks my decision is extreme and that I need to find a balance and just cut down the animal product so I’m going to listen to her. I’ve basically been having vegan tostadas, scrambled tofu, cereal, and green smoothies for the past few weeks. Last pic was Father’s Day.... and I resisted then too. If I’ve learned anything from this experiment it’s that I have more self control then I think.

    Ingredients: 1-2 bunches of cilantro (Put cilantro in a blender with a little water and blend until its completely broken down) Rice Chicken (any cut) Mixed veggies (Peas, carrots, corn) 1-2 Red bell peppers (cut in long pieces) Aji Amarillo (a couple tablespoons) 1 onion & a couple garlic cloves Seasonings: S&P, cumin, garlic powder, a dash or two of turmeric, adobo (optional) 1 chicken bouillon cube Lightly season the chicken with the above seasonings minus the turmeric and then pan sear them until they are half way cooked and have a nice golden color. In a rice pot, add some oil and fry the onions and garlic. Once they are half way cooked add the aji amarillo and fry for or minute or two making sure you are constantly stirring the mixture. Season the mixture with all of the above seasonings and add the chicken cube. If the mixture starts drying up and sticking add some water and then after another minute add the blended cilantro and cook for 2 minutes or so. Add the chicken to the pot and then add some water (enough to cover the chicken to the top. Let the chicken cook until done. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the mixture and set aside. Scoop out any oil or grease you see come up to the surface. Add your mixed veggies, bell peppers, add enough water depending on how much rice you are making, then add your rice and mix. Check to see if the mixture needs salt. Cook the rice as you normally would and once the rice is done turn off the stove and add the chicken back to the pot leaving it on the surface and cover the pan letting the steam do its work. Done! Here's a link of how to make it. Its in Spanish but you can see how everything is suppose to look like. She adds some black beer which is normally used in this rice but I do it without. She also adds some blended spinach to it but I like a stronger cilantro flavor so I don't add that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzyE1THjSnA Not sure if you wanted the papa a la huancaina recipe (yellow cream potato app) but here it is either way: Blend together half of a pack of queso freso (I use Mexican, Salvadorean, or Guatemalan because Peruvian cheese doesn't exist here), a drizzle of olive oil, some evaporated milk, a couple saltine crackers, salt, and a couple spoons of aji amarillo and that's it. The consistency should be somewhat thick and serve it over boiled potatoes. Ok so this is aji amarillo. Its definitely essential to making the rice and it wont come out the same if you decide not to use it. I believe amazon has it too. Its spicy so be careful when using it because I found that some jars are spicier than others, ESPECIALLY when you first open the jar. Just add to your desire taste. Oh and I highly recommend doing the salsa criolla (onion mixture). Its basically purple onions mixed with lime, salt, cilantro and a chopped hot pepper of your choice. I cant eat this meal without it lol Hope you like it!

    Last nights dinner: I made arroz con pollo peruano (Peruvian rice and chicken) with a side of papá a la huancaina (creamy yellow potato app) and salsa criolla (spicy onion lime mixture) for my bf. Normally I would pick at what I cook for him but since yesterday was day 1 of my vegan journey I made tostadas for myself instead. Ingredients: puréed black beans, avocado, soy chorizo, pico de gallo, lettuce, vegan almond cheese, and habanero sauce. For today’s breakfast I’m having a tofu scramble with onions, mushrooms, scallions, spinach, tomatoes, and avocado on the side.

    Ahhh I need to to be like you! That’s great you have one everyday! I find myself having salad throughout the week and then I take a break and have something different the next. All the doctor said was to try to cut the amount of meat and animal products in my diet. I’m assuming it formed because I eat more meat now vs prior to wls

    I wasn’t sure if that was for me or you?

    Korean BBQ w/ my bf this past weekend. We ordered spicy pork, shrimp, marinated thin beef, thin sliced pork belly, and beef tongue. I am saying goodbye to meat for sometime now and thought this would be a good way to end the relationship 😭 Ever since my kidney stone scare I’ve been thinking a lot about my health and I’ve never had a problem even when I was 140 pounds heavier. I’m going to try to go vegan for a bit and see how that works. Before wls there was a point where I was a strict vegetarian for a year but that was easy because I ate a lot of eggs lol Let’s see how long I can go 😅

    Went out for Indian food with a few friends yesterday. Ordered saag paneer and instead of basmati rice I asked for kale salad but they messed up and gave me rice anyway. And yes I ended up eating a little bit of rice 😭 I swear I really try to avoid these things lol

    Bf requested tallarin saltado (Peruvian stir fry) last night. Didn’t end up eating an official dinner because I got full from trying the meat and veggies while I was cooking lol I find myself doing that a lot lately...
