Radish Salad

Hello all the summertime Phase 2 followers,  I hope this summer finds you near a pool, it seems it has been hot everywhere.  I love it!  Here is a very fresh salad idea to keep you full and taste bud satisfied.  Add the pinch of ginger for an Asian flare or cumin for a Spanish taste.  Whichever you chose is delicious!  Pair up with the Grilled Ginger Kabobs or over the Fish Tacos recipe instead of wrapping it up in a veg. 

Radish Salad
1 bunch radishes, sliced
1/4- 1/2 C cilantro, chopped
1/2 lemon, juiced
pinch of powdered ginger or cumin
pinch of celtic sea salt and fresh cracked pepper

Cut radishes into quarters and toss with lemon juice, cilantro, ginger or cumin (but not both!), salt and pepper. Stir and let rest for a few minutes.
Phase 3/4:  Add a splash of extra virgin olive oil and some chopped up cucumbers.

"Honey" Mustard Grilled Chicken and Marinade

Happy July!  I hope all of you had a safe, fun and successful Phase 2 weekend.  Grills are fired up around here and I could not be happier.  Here in the Midwest we cherish our grilling months and sometimes even trudge out in the ice and snow to get a grilled steak on a warm day of 30 degrees F.  I don't want to even think about that right now!  It is 85 and sunny today, my meat is thawing and I will be making this again even in my Phase 4 status.  Get creative and add some P2 allowed veggies over top the flame for wonderful flavored sides. 

"Honey" Mustard Grilled Chicken
1/4 C sugar free- dijon mustard
1/4-1/2 tsp stevia
2 TB chicken broth or water
1 TB apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
1/4 tsp paprika
4  boneless, skinless chicken breast

Whisk together the first 6 ingredients in a small bowl.  Pour over chicken and marinade in the refrigerator for 1 hour to overnight.  When ready to cook, remove chicken and grill over medium heat for 20 minutes, until cooked through.

Phase 3/4:  Add 1/4 cup mayo, plain yogurt or oil to the marinade to add in healthy fats. 

No grill?  Try this!

Need a little excitement?  Do this!

Don't let Phase 2 get in the way of summer fun. Remember to follow Dr. Simeon's full orders and sunbathe!!!  Check Pounds and Inches, it is in there I swear.  I have that part of the protocol down no twisting of the arm, I am out in the vitamin D richness.

Have a pound dropping rest of the week!
