One of the problems I have noticed with sheltering in place is that I don’t have nearly the appetite that I normally have. Maybe it’s because of the lack of activity, certainly there’s no going out to eat not that I do that very often anyway.
Since we started this I’ve lost nearly 10 pounds. I’m not happy about that, it’s too much. Especially for someone my age. I’m working on it and I’ll fix it. Going to try taking more walks, increasing my activity level and see if that helps.
But I did have something incredibly delicious that really inspired me last night and I want to share it with you.
I made steak and a Japanese sweet potato a few nights ago. Unfortunately the steak was really tough. I hadn’t cooked it enough which didn’t help, but that aside, it was just tough. I finished the sweet potato which was to die for. If you haven’t ever had one of those Japanese sweet potatoes you must try it. It’s purple on the outside, white on the inside and absolutely divine! I baked it in the oven for about 45 minutes because it was pretty small as those sweet potatoes go. I coded it with coconut oil and then Himalayan pink sea salt and put it in a ceramic baking dish. Then when I took it out I cut it down the middle put a huge glob maybe 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and then sprinkled it with at least 2 teaspoons of organic ground cinnamon. I ate the entire thing skin at all. Really delicious!You can get them at Whole Foods and at Kroger.
AnyWho, didn’t finish the steak and decided I would save it, slice it up and fry it with a vegetable of some sort which is what I did last night. I had some bone broth so I sautéed the sliced up beef in the bone broth and then I had some frozen broccoli which I nuked in the microwave (I know, I know you shouldn’t microwave things like that and I normally don’t but I was in a big hurry) Threw that in the frying pan with the beef and the bone broth. I used a little bit of Himalayan pink sea salt and some adobo seasoning and just let it simmer a little bit and it was out of this world!
