Seafood, Easy Lunch Ideas and More Solicitation

Hey y'all! I wanted to thank everyone who subscribed last week. I saw an influx of followers and I really appreciated it! I have also created new social media accounts. I will share all of them on social media but for Facebook, just type in My Life Without Ranch. Twitter: MyLifeWOutRanch Instagram: mylifewithoutranch. I hate to keep asking you for things but as soon as you can, please hit me up on these sites. I'm hoping to have a completed manuscript by fall of 2017. So, wish me luck! I didn't have any change on the scale this week, which was a blessing, believe me. I have been taking things in stride over the past week and I hope that continues.



This week, I wanted to share my simple lettuce roll ups. I'm so sick of salads. I know it seems like a lettuce roll up is a glorified salad and truthfully, it is but for some reason, having my salad in a different format has helped the monotony. All I do is use iceberg or romaine lettuce leaves (because they are the biggest and have the best rolling potential) and pack whatever I want to stuff in it. I opt for easy things to go in my lunch box. I have been putting deli meat in my container along with reduced fat feta cheese and cucumbers. I always think that adding extra steps, like rolling your own tiny lettuce sandwiches helps you get full faster. I don't think that's exact science but it works for me. Anyway, it's a way to make your salad less boring.







The main dish today is almond-crusted fish. This is a Pinterest inspired recipe. I used cod from Fresh Market because it was on sale but I feel like you could use any white fish. All you do is season the fish with salt, pepper and smoked paprika, then you cover it in dijon mustard. For me, I love the kind of dijon that makes your nose burn and your eyes water but you may want to use a milder mustard. Then, you dunk the fish in crushed up almonds. I used my brand new Ninja food processor which made the whole process extremely easy. Once that's done, just plop them in a warm skillet that has melted coconut oil. They only need a few minutes at medium heat on each side. I placed the fish on top of cauliflower "rice" that I sautéed with squash, garlic and onions. As always, I added fresh green onion to the top. This was delicious! I loved the flavor of the dijon and smoked paprika. It added an extra kick to the flavors I'm used to.


Jordan and I went to Kentuck this weekend and had a fun time! He's the best! Alabama has a big game this weekend, I'm going to see Ron Pope in concert with Cassandra on Friday and I have friends coming into town. Should be a great weekend.

See y'all next week!
