Almond Chicken


I was very surprised at the lack of almond chicken recipes on the internet. I thought this was a popular dish? I found 3 that seemed okay but none of them would work with the diet so I had to create my own substitutions to make it work. So I will, as usual, put the original recipe and then how I needed to change it down below in my notes.

Breakfast Quinoa


Now I am the first person to tell you that Quinoa is not one of my most favorite things to eat. After trying out a few different ways of having it for dinner and almost wanting the throw it right back up I decided to give it a chance for breakfast. I came across this recipe from one of my most favorite food sites skinnytaste.com and you know what...its actually good. Coming from me that is a pretty big statement because I can't stand the stuff to be honest. The first time I did this diet and did quinoa for breakfast I did everything I could think of to just choke the stuff down. Needless to say I never really looked forward to waking up and eating because I hated it so much.
BUT NOW...I have found this fantastic recipe that makes it taste a lot like cracked wheat cereal. And of course, is diet approved. Enjoy!

Chicken Fajitas

 I've decided that you can't go wrong with chicken fajitas. They are loaded with flavor and you don't have to put them in a tortilla to make them taste good. You can serve this up as is, chopped up over a salad, or try your hand at some quinoa tortillas (which I have personally never done, but wanted to try).

So here's for you gluten free, dairy free, soy free.....yes the list is quite long so I will stop there
