Food Challenge

December 2nd, 2011 at 08:09 am

Well, our bank account is getting a little skinny, so I am doing a Pantry Challenge, trying to make do as much as I can with what we already have. Fortunately, my husband is on a juice fast diet for the next week or so, and the only things I have to get for him are produce items. Here are the meals I have planned for me.

1) green salad with chicken, nuts, oranges, olive oil, and sea salt - 3 meals (using chicken and sea salt I already have)

2) chicken cacciatore and a side salad with sea salt and olive oil - 4 meals (using chicken, canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, sea salt, and olive oil I already have)

3) potato salad with eggs, side of cucumbers and tomatoes salad - 4 meals (using mayonnaise, onion, and bacon I already have)

4) chicken curry salad with sides of apples and carrots - 6 servings (using carrots and curry powder I already have)

5) oatmeal with raisins, cinnamon, almond milk, and honey and a smoothie with flaxseeds, almond milk, peanut butter, and banana - 3 meals (using flaxseeds, cinnamon, honey, and peanut butter I already have)

6) eggs and ham - 2 meals (using ham I already have)

7) leftover soup - 1 meal

8) lunch out on payday!

    Wow! I wish I could be that creative with the items I already have!

    I guess I just have a weird brain or something. I look at all the stuff I already have and ask myself what I could make with that I like and can eat with my food allergies.

    Your mention of potato salad leads me to feel a little hungry... they don't make it over here and now I am craving it! However, my wife takes our oatmeal and other stuff and roasts it to make a delicious granola, and I really like that. It looks like a delicious menu, and if it offers you some insurance of getting through to payday then all the better. Enjoy!
