Ahhh! Day 2

Alright, so for today’s accountability, here goes.  I did NOT have a smoothie but the night’s not over yet.  I did, however, for lunch, have a spicy crab salad (I know not totally veg) that had raw mango and lettuce in it.  For dinner, I had raw tomato, avocado, and mozzarella with garlic & basil pesto “salad” and cooked my curried mushroom and broccoli.  I know that’s not raw, but I didn’t totally bomb the day, I did have some raw, just not as much as I would have liked.  The goal, is to incorporate more raw into my diet…not totally raw…not yet…and mostly veg.

Curried Broccoli & Mushroom

16 ounces baby bella mushroom (sliced)

1 Broccoli crown

2 T Curry powder

3 T Butter or Ghee

Melt butter in frying pan, add mushroom, cook to desired consistency, then add curry and broccoli.  I covered after adding broccoli to lightly steam the broccoli to retain nutrients.  The less it’s cooked, the more nutrients remain!

Curried Shrimp With Broccoli and Mushroom!

Hi there!

I know some of you are waiting for me to post how I make this fiber rich, vitamin loaded dish!  It’s pretty easy!

First I sautee 1 whole package of sliced baby bella mushroom in butter.  Then add 1/2 – 3/4 pound of shrimp.  1 Tsp garlic powder and 1 T Curry (less if your not as big a fan as I)

Then I added some baby peppers, both red and yellow.  About 1/2 a cups worth.  Continue to sautee for a couple minutes.

Image

Last but not least, toss in a whole broccoli crown, cut up, of course.  Put cover on so it can lightly steam broccoli.  When the broccoli turns bright green (just a few minutes) viola!  Done!

Serve up and enjoy!

Curried Broccoli & Mushroom

I was so craving mushrooms!  Not sure why since I’ve always disliked mushrooms!  So this is a very simple gluten free recipe I created…did I mention it’s VERY simple?

1 Fresh Broccoli Crown

1 Package Sliced Mushroom (Baby Bellas are the best!)

Butter or olive oil

2-3 T Curry Powder (depending on how much you like curry)

Sautee mushroom in butter or oil, when almost finished, add broccoli.  Cook with lid on until broccoli turns bright green, add curry, mix and viola!

Eat & enjoy your fresh dose of Vitamins A, B, K, D, potassium, niacin, and fiber!
