Lunch This Week
Pork Tenderloin : I coated the top with garlic powder and oregano, then cooked in the oven at 400 for about 80 minutes, until a thermometer read over 140 degrees internal temperature.
Black Beans : I simmered the beans in a pot of water until they reached my desired texture. Then I sauteed about 1/3 of an onion with garlic powder and olive oil until it started to brown. I added 8 roughly chopped mushrooms, then added the beans to the skillet. I mixed it all up and let it cook a few more minutes.
Carrots : I chopped 6 carrots, added them to a skillet with olive oil and garlic powder, covered them until the started to soften, and then cooked them with the lid off until some edges started to brown.
The meal : A big spoonful of carrots, a bigger spoonful of beans, and 2 slices of pork.
Friday's meal will be carrots, beans, and salmon.
We will see how this week goes with nothing that really qualifies as a carb to my tastebuds in my lunches. I'm using the beans as my carb here, but I'm going to be missing the taste of pasta, potatoes, or rice. I suspect I will be adding potato chips to these meals...we will see.
