Try saying that 5 times fast.
Recently Mumika went to the doctor and found out she had plaque build up in her veins similar to a person 20 years older than her.
It’s all those cheetos Mumika, they are killing you.
Despite trying her damnedest to eat healthy, the heart disease her family is known for is taking over.
So the doctor put her on a strict no carbohydrate, no sugar diet. This restrictive diet is more restrictive than my latest let’s claim gluten is the devil restrictive diet. She can’t eat fruit, potatoes, breads, pastas, rice, and starchy vegetable. They took corn away. You all know how I feel about corn.
Basically lean meats and vegetables.
I would die. I would so die. I would cry and starve for a year. Mumika, you are stronger with food than me. I would have been like, if I eat rice and pasta and corn once a month, could I get away with that and not add to the slow death my body is striving unknowingly towards?
I’m going home for her birthday as usual and had this one meal planned that was a grilled chicken with red quinoa, rice, pecans, green apples, dried cherries and feta cheese, but now it’s totally out the window.
The OMG this is only what I can eat restrictive menu that would kill any diabetic menu
Pinchos with vegetable kabob
Grilled steak with oven roasted.
tomatoes and sautéed garlic brussel
Grilled chicken with sautéed spinach
and roasted cauliflower
Egg stuffed bell pepper
Baked bacon wrapped avocado slices
with a poached egg
Vanilla Greek yogurt souffle
Salads of somekind.
And there you have it. Clean eating at its finest. Not as creative but not too bad considering the restrictions. And it is all gluten free.
Mumika and Diabetic Michelle approved.
That and honestly, any reason is a good reason to use the grill. Man we could do grilled ribs with a side salad for tow of the lunches……. Hmmmmm…….
