20130113-160732.jpg

I probably know what you’re thinking. What the heck is that thing?
It’s my iPad mini “sock”.
I made it this morning after cleaning and just wanted to share how much I love it already.
I will be making a DIY tutorial on how to make this and other cool things to come. I love to crochet. Big fanatic!

Ranch Chicken And Rice

I found this recipe online and I just had to try it. With that being said, this recipe is not an original of mine. I do not know who it belongs to, but I did find it @ One Good Thing by Jillee. She has great recipes there. Now my verision is made a little bit different than hers and no where looks good as hers. I am no chef. I’m just a person learning how to cook still. Laugh at my pictures later!

Ranch Chicken

Ingredients:
-4 Boneless Chicken Breasts (Cut into strips) For mine I bought boneless chicken strips from Kroger.
-1 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese (Personally, that did not work out, so I will try grated next time)
-For my recipe I used GF Corn Flakes crushed up (Approx 2 cups)
-Italian Seasoning to taste (Just a pinch)
-1 Cup of ranch dressing (I made two batches so I had 2 cups)
-Oil for Cooking (I used OLIVE OIL)

Step One:
Pour oil to cover the bottom of your skillet and set on medium-high heat.

Step Two:
Have ranch in one bowl and crumbs/cheese/seasoning in another bowl

Step Three:
Take chicken strips from ranch to seasoning and lay on separate plate when finished.
Use spoon to get missing parts if needed.

Step Four:
Place chicken onto pre-heated skillet. Turn halfway through cooking. Cook until no longer pink in middle.
For mine, I like a little bit of burnt, so…I cook a little bit longer than most people.

We had rice on the side. It was delicious. Next time, I am going to use GF breadcrumbs! Maybe it’ll turn out better. Haha!

Hope you enjoy this recipe if you try. If you make it, please share what you did differently! 🙂

Weigh in

Hey everyone! I wanted to let you know I’ve lost 10.5 lbs since last week. That is all thanks to eating veggies and fruit.

So I cheated yesterday. I had gluten. I got sick. Real sick. Sweating real bad. It was gross. More details but I’m not gonna share. Heh.

Gross.

Well this is the weigh in update. I’m going to post a recipe and some food that people with celiac disease can eat.

Confirmed.

Life has changed for me. It just hasn’t changed for me, it also has changed for Tony too. I have found out and has been confirmed that I have celiac disease. I am okay with the news because I can finally start getting healthy. I know what is making me sick all the time. I’m tired of feeling weak, time to start feeling strong!
Now, the doctor also said my thyroid is also very high, but she said once the weight comes off, that will ease up as well. But with that being high, it will be hard to lose weight. But I’ve been eating right and will start exercising on my days off. It is a start! It’s more than what I do now.

What the awesome thing about this change in my life, is that I have great support around me. Tony made dinner last night for us, all gluten/wheat free. He made chicken and rice. He spiced the chicken up good, and everything was great. I am happy that I can have the foods I love, but just with different sides.

Another thing that I have been doing this past week, is leaving the fast food out of my diet. I can’t depend fast food anymore. It’s literally killing my insides. When you eat fast food every day, it is something that you depend on. It’s like a drug. You depend on it, because it makes you feel like yourself. I know it’s only been a week, but I feel so much better without the fast food.

At work has been difficult for foods though. I will tell you that for snacks I have been eating carrots and grapes. (My two favorite things in the world!) At work, they give us free snacks when we hit our numbers, the snacks that they give are chocolate, chips, ect… I know on my first day, I picked up a kitkat bar, and gave it away. I had my grapes and my carrots to depend on.

This disease will not define me. It will only make me healthy into the person I want to become.

I will be weighing in on Friday to see if I lost any weight with changing how I eat.

Soon to be Mrs. 🙂
