    LydiaJo reacted to Medowsweet in Recepie wanted: veggie hashbrowns   
    I am looking for a recepie that would be like veggie hashbrowns or latkas.  I know technically a potato IS a veggie and some potato would be fine but I am looking for breakfast veggie ideas and thought "you know what woukd taste good?  Veggie hashbrowns!!"
     
    I like my hashbrowns crispy and thin with gooey sunny side up egg yolk overtop

    Put a bunch of snapper in a ziploc bag with lime juice mixed with cumin, garlic, paprika, parsley, salt & pepper. Let it sit for about 90 minutes and then grilled it for 2 minutes on each side. Side of steamed green beans and kale slaw w/ homemade mayo-based dressing.

    Janie,
    I don't do complicated. No sauces or 15 ingredient things. Plain meats, chicken or fish. Plain veggies with a fat. Spices are gee, this smells good. I tend to just mix and match... protein, veggie, fat.
    On hand, I have chicken, ground beef, beef cubes, sweet potatoes, salad greens. frozen veggies. I top that off with various fats. That makes compliant meals.

    Day 2, I'm up and running. 530 comes early so that's where left overs come in. While my daughter isn't on W30, she is eating better and taking lunch to school.

    I never know how long I will be at work with an hour commute each way. I pack 2 meals. If I don't eat the second one I leave it in the frig and only bring one meal the next day. Anything and everything is fair game. Mostly chicken or ground beef and frozen veggies with ghee thrown in.

    You've been given some great advice above in terms of your results, but regarding keeping costs down going forward you could do some of the following:
    Use tinned fish like sardines & mackerel which are much cheaper, healthy protein options.
    Go to the supermarket around closing time when they are marking down produce close to it's sell by date - buy & freeze, or buy, cook & freeze.
    Only buy products in season, or on offer & plan your meals around this, rather than planning your meals & then buying.
    Make friends with your local butcher who can sell you cheap cuts of meat for slow cooking, and probably provide free bones for making broth.
    Cook a whole chicken rather than buying then you can add to all kinds of meals throughout the week .(I can cook a whole large chicken for less than the cost of buying a cooked small one).
    Use cheaper cooking fats such as lard.
    Search for the more expensive oils (such as coconut oil or avocado oil) online - they are often cheaper.
    Ditch the expensive & unnecessary nuts & nut butters
    Rely on eggs a little more as a cheap protein source.
    Switch out some/all of the avocado in favour of home-made mayo.
     
    It's definitely do-able on a budget if you think outside of the box, and the truth is that going back to those cheap, refined carbs now will most certainly make you feel a lot worse, and that's when you'll notice how much better you've been feeling eating this way.
