If you didn’t notice by the headline, there’s bacon in that there sandwich. If that ain’t an advancement in healthy eating, I don’t know what to tell you.
But bacon is low in calories (40-50 per slice, though high in fat) and a little bit can totally be a part of a healthy diet.
For our second meal of week 2, we’re dressing that bacon with a bunch of great ingredients for our thyme-crusted roasted pork panini with balsamic fig jam and bacon.
BOOYAH. Keep readin’. Continue reading Week 2, Meal 2: Thyme-crusted roasted pork panini with balsamic fig jam and bacon
I went through a phase where all I ate were paninis.
Bacon and egg paninis for breakfast. Turkey and salami paninis for lunch. Media noches for dinner.

Sounds good doesn’t it? IT WAS. And easy too!
Keep going for the recipe (good for two portions) and directions. Continue reading Week 1, Meal 2: Grilled herb chicken panini with apple butter, caramelized onion and gruyere

Chef Brian thought he’d kick off the festivities with recipes that celebrate fall flavors.
I’m a fan of Thanksgiving so I was all ears until he informed me that “pumpkin pie” isn’t a flavor.
His first menu features lots of apples paired with rosemary-and-thyme-marinated chicken breast.
It’s not pumpkin pie, but it’ll do:
Meal 1: Grilled herb chicken with quick-braised kale over caramelized apple and sweet potato puree with sweet and sour apple reduction
Meal 2: Grilled herb chicken panini with apple butter, caramelized onions and Gruyere
Meal 3: Grilled herb chicken with sauteed spinach over wild rice and chicken sausage stuffing
Our list is good for two portions of each meal. I doubled mine so I always have leftovers for the next day.
The shopping list is after the jump. Continue reading Week 1: Chicken and apples
