Jess, that turkey stock sounds delicious! Too bad you didn't feel up to eating any. By the way, I just posted on the heartburn thread. I've been having pretty consistant heartburn too, but it hasent been a issue because I've got a trick that works instantly. Baking soda... Thats right. We all have it somewhere in the house. (For me, I use it to make all pupose cleaners, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, laundry detergent just to name a few) It neutralizes acidity instantly, without ANY side effects.. Its perfectly safe.
I mix just a pinch of it in a shot of water, then drink a whole glass of water. This way you don't even get any taste in your mouth. It may not be for everyone (although it works consistantly) but it's worth trying at least once, right?
As far as veggies... Oh MAN that is one thing I've gotten better at over the years. People are kind of surprised to learn how many veggies I eat since I'm still pretty full sized gal (5'10' 200# pre-preg!)
Yet I fit them in everywhere. This morning for example I made sauteed red cabbage, onion and kale in a touch of bacon lard, Braggs aminos ( A MUST HAVE for any kitchen) and a little red wine vinegar. Then I topped my veggie mixture with a couple fried local eggs.. It was SOOOO delicious and will keep me full for quite a while if eaten first thing in the morning. Also, yesterday was homemade toast (from my own country bread) sauteed kale in a tad bit of white wine/real maple syrup, and scrambled eggs with green onions, basil and local cheddar cheese.
As far as kale goes:
-baked kale chips (You can season them a bunch of different ways)
-stirfried with eggs
- kale quiche/fritata
- kale added on pizza
- kale on sandwhiches
- kale potato salad
- add kale to pasta salad
- added to anykind of soups
In the last 3 days I can think of 5 meals that included kale for us..
