Good morning
Today's plan
IP Strawberry wafer with Coffee -- when I saw how many carbs it had I decided to have a sweet start to the day instead

IP Herb & Cheese omelette.. Not sure of the veggies yet, could be Kale or Callaloo , romaine lettuce to get in my potassium :)

Dinner - Herb rubbed salmon with swiss chard and more lettuce

the swiss chard & kale are abundant in our backyard so I must make every effort to eat it

How are you preparing your greens? I usually love them but I am having a hard time figuring out how to fix them IPish. And herbed salmon sounds delicious. I might just have that myself tonight!

My plan:
Breakie: vanilla rtd heated up with cinnamon and coffee. SOOOO yummy.

Lunch: chicken noodle soup, roasted zucchini, peppers, and mushrooms.

Dinner:??? Maybe salmon, maybe pork loin sauteed with broccoli and leeks.

Oops-almost forgot my snack: frozen wildberry yogurt

I tried rutabaga fries for the first time today. Not to bad, dipped in WF bbq sauce. Liz, do yours get crispy and how? My son tried one without knowing what they were and he spit it out in the garbage LOL.

Last night I made cauliflower rice which was yummy!

I am a boring cook so what I do is
chop the greens into small pieces
add garlic and sea salt
sometimes I add Worcestershire sauce
spray a pan with Pam
add greens
simmer with the seasonings until they are tender

I julienne them fine, spread in a single layer, spray with evoo, sprinkle with french fry seasoning, and convect at 350 for ~25 minutes, there is a fine line between crispy and burned, i usually 'smell them' when they are ready. I like them just with a touch of burn!

Well, I love my rutabaga fries as is, but did a little searching and found a few different methods used to make 'crispy' fries, I am always looking for an upgrade! Martha Stewart slices, microwaves for 4 minutes, and then washes them in whisked egg whites before cooking them (at least with her sweet potato fries). A more IP friendly method is to soak thin slices in ice water for 30minutes-1 hour, completely dry them, cut into fries, then lay out with plenty of space. I will try a few of these methods, as we have them at least 1x/week. I've also 'finished' soggy fries in the microwave on top of a paper towel for a few minutes.

Found on the internets:
One of the tricks to get "fake-fries" to crisp up is to soak them in cold water after you cut them (and then dry them). Many vegetables (particularly the starchy ones) will release starchy/sugary fluid when you cut them and that surface film tends to prevent them from getting crisp. Cutting them thinner also improves crispness - you can cut chips (disks) rather than fries (sticks) if you prefer. A metal baking tray will give a better result than a silicon tray because it conducts heat better. Turning them often will also make them crisper, but is more work. They are never going to be as crisp as something that is fried, but you should be able to have them come out not limp.
