Have you been wondering, where the heck have I been…well, I’ve been working tirelessly to prepare the next 30 day plan. I worked so hard it ended up being 31 days! I’m still ironing out some kinks, but the next 30 is coming! Still haven’t written down my workouts, but I will soon!
So tonight, dinner…like the title says, Rock and Roll Lobster Bisque. I’ve told you before, I LOVE MAKING HOMEMADE SOUP! It’s so much better than canned — no contest.
- 1 bag of Trader Joe’s Langostino Tails
- 3 1/2 TBSP grass fed butter
- 2 C. chopped leeks
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1/2 head cauliflower, roughly chopped
- 4 C. low sodium vegetable broth
- 2 C. water
- 1 TBSP Italian seasoning
- 1 bay leaf
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled and whole (feel free to add more if you love garlic)
- 6 oz. can of tomato paste
- salt and pepper
In a medium sized pot, melt 2TBSP butter and add the leeks, carrots, and celery. Heat until leeks become tender. Then add the broth, water, cauliflower, Italian seasoning, bay leaf, garlic cloves, and S&P — bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the bay leaf, then use an immersion blender to blend all ingredients in the pot. Take about 3/4 of the Trader Joe’s Langostino Tails (after you have rinsed them) and add them to the pot with the tomato paste. Stir occasionally until well combined. Take the rest of the TJ’s Tails and put them in a small pan with the remaining butter. Heat them and make sure they get covered in the butter! Pour the bisque into bowls and top with a few buttered tails. ENJOY!!
…and then for tomorrow’s breakfast…
- 1 C. roasted almonds
- 2 C. toasted coconut flakes
- 1/2 C. pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 C. sunflower seeds
- 3/4 C. cashews
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 C. cranberries
In a blender, use the pulse option to roughly chop the almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. Transfer to large bowl and mix in toasted coconut, cinnamon, cranberries, and combine! Serve with kefir!
