20120823-215242.jpgWhere do I begin?! First of all I think my hubby and I really found our new passion and hobby. We both have always liked cooking, but now we have an audience, which makes it even more fun and exhilarating… For now were going to stick with the Ideal Protein Recipe Book so we can show each and everyone of you that although the ideal protein diet seems hard and strict, this makes it so much more fun and taste bud stimulating!!! I’m not going to explain the recipe, word for word, because I’m still waiting to hear back from the company to see if I’m allowed to be posting their full recipes, but I’d love to tell you everything else and give you the “gist” of it! Pretty much chicken breast sautéed in chicken broth and walden farms orange marmalade, which was interesting cuz it gave the chicken a nice refreshing citrusy flavor. If you haven’t heard of walden farms dressings, spreads and condiments, I’d highly recommend you get familiar with them. They have a huge selection of stuff, ranging from ranch dressing to peanut butter and marshmallow dip, all of which are no calories, no fats, no carbs, no gluten and NO SUGAR. Crazy huh?!? And when I look on the side panel, it looks like its made with pretty healthy ingredients. We will be carrying them eventually in our office within the next couple of weeks, but if you can’t wait til then, or don’t live anywhere close to where we’re located, you can find the brand in any sprouts/Henry’s supermarket. & if you don’t have one of those, check them out online http://www.waldenfarms.com. Sorry for getting sidetracked, but I thought that was very important and valuable information 😉 while the chicken was cooking we also had a few leek stocks steaming in chicken broth, which made them oh so tender and flavorful! The final touch was the steamed bed of spinach, which really helped tie the flavors in nicely. On the side?! Small salad with the walden farms Italian sun dried tomato dressing.. Oh so delish!

So there you have it, our nightly concoction! And we’re enjoying every minute of it! Please share this blog with all your friends and family, share the info, share the wealth. If you have any questions, what so ever, please feel free to ask!
