Acorn Squash Stuffed with Sautéed Spinach and Truffle Goat Cheese

My previous post involved meal prepping my work lunches. One of the meals was an Italian cauliflower bake. The other meal is this one. It’s vegetarian and deeelicious! I cut my acorn squashes in half and scrape out the seeds and guts. I like to also put a nice coat of olive oil on mine,Continue reading “Acorn Squash Stuffed with Sautéed Spinach and Truffle Goat Cheese”

Italian Cauliflower Bake

I’m making lunches for work tomorrow. I guess the buzz phrase is “meal prepping.” I have found if I don’t plan ahead and bring food, I’m likely to eat things that aren’t on my diet. Shocking! I work 12-hour shifts plus intermittent fasting, so I need two meals. My lunch is usually easy to get,Continue reading “Italian Cauliflower Bake”

Bunless burgers

I’ve been working with my doctor on my weight loss, and I asked her which diet was best. I’m at the point where I know what has worked for me in the past, and I know what I enjoy, but nothing seems to work anymore. I’ve tried calorie restriction, low carb, primal/paleo, Noom, Weight Watchers,Continue reading “Bunless burgers”

Braised Lamb (no hike) 15Apr2022

This week I didn’t hike. Boooooo! It was my 3-day off stretch, but I had a meeting one one of the days and picked up an extra shift teaching on another day, so I only had one day off. I was exhausted! I still had to cook dinner, though, and my sweetheart asked for braisedContinue reading “Braised Lamb (no hike) 15Apr2022”

Pisgah Flats & Lunch Prep 10Apr2022

The weather here has been more of what I’d expect from March: unpredictable. We’ve had a lot of rain (normal), but the temperature has dropped and we’ve recently had some snow, hail, sleet, and whatever else there is to be had. Once in a while, the sun breaks out and one can see blue skies!Continue reading “Pisgah Flats & Lunch Prep 10Apr2022”

Chicken Enchiladas 08Apr2022

As some of you know, this blog is about getting more fit, being healthier, etc. To save some of you from having to go back and read, I quit a very stressful job in August 2021 and went back to the floor to work. I wanted to get healthier: cardiovascular/physical health, mental health, the wholeContinue reading “Chicken Enchiladas 08Apr2022”

Spencer Butte from Fox Hollow Rd 07Apr2022

I’m supposed to go biking/hiking with my friend Christine this weekend, but there was no way I was going to miss out on today’s weather. I mean, LOOK: So, I went local, and chose Spencer Butte, one of my favorites. This time, I decided to go from Fox Hollow Rd. The parking area was smallContinue reading “Spencer Butte from Fox Hollow Rd 07Apr2022”
