Dinner. Made a big batch of lentils this past weekend, stewed with kombu and chopped pork loin. It has been keeping me going all week. I paired it here with two fried eggs and some baby kale for a nice post workout dinner.
Roasted heritage pork loin(chipotle-thyme-turmeric rub), baby kale and avocado salad, lemon-olive oil dressing(pepper, salt, garlic, oregano). #eatgoodfeelgood

Cast Iron Seared NY Strip, Roasted garlic salt asparagus and avocado. After finishing this steak in the oven, I used the same pan with the steak juices still in it to cook the asparagus.
Seared this NY strip in olive oil in my @lodgecastiron. Then finished it in the oven at 400. Seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic. Not pictured the red onion I threw in the pan for good measure. Meat cred: @thrivemkt
Two eggs, spinach, basil, bacon, avocado, ghee, gluten free bread. Oh and a ton of @cholulahotsauce
Oven roasted pork ribs with a turmeric-chipotle-salt-garlic dry rub over slaw.
No grill needed, I roasted these at 280 for an hour and a half. Key is to try and remove the thin membrane layer on the underside of the rack, makes the ribs turn out much more tender.
Broiled sockeye salmon, red cabbage slaw, cilantro and basil chutney with chipotle mayo.
You see that mayo drag? That is the result of hours of...not eating and being hungry and rushing while trying to spruce up my presentation. It was delicious regardless. Thanks @primalkitchenfoods your chipotle mayo is 👍. What do you pair your salmon with?
Almond flour gluten free pancakes with homemade blueberry syrup. Simple way to make the syrup, crush 1/2 cup of blueberries and add them to a sauce pan with 1/8 cup of water, 1 tbsp of butter and 1/2 tsp of a sweetener of your choice. Reduce blueberries down on a medium flame for about five minutes, while actively stirring.
I rarely follow set recipes, I am more of a open the fridge, see what I have and figure it out. However, once I have figured it out, I almost always organize the ingredients on my counter or cutting board like this. It helps my lay out the steps and fill in any gaps that might make the meal better. Mise en place

Taco Tuesday left overs are treating me well today. It has been a while since I have cooked squash, but it is easy to make and is great mixed in with ground meat. To make peel and cube the squash, then place on a baking sheet with olive oil, salt, turmeric and red pepper flakes. Then roast on 350F for 30 mins.
