Curry Stirfry

This is another variation on my “Asian” stirfry recipe, using curry powder as the primary spice. This works best with chicken, although you can easily substitute the protein of your choice. Using tofu will make this a vegan-friendly dish. INGREDIENTS 1 – 2 lbs boneless chicken breasts (or other protein option, including tofu). 1 tbsp…

Asian Stirfry

This is my base stirfry recipe. I’ve tweaked it over the years and I often mix it up with different spices, meats, or vegetable combinations. This is an easy recipe to experiment with, and I have posted two of my favorite variations here as well, a Curry Stirfry and a Beef and Eggplant Stirfry. INGREDIENTS…

Re-purposing this Site

I’m starting to consider repurposing this blog, perhaps having it focus entirely on my recipes or something of that nature. I do still blog, but I’ve been primarily posting on my other domain name instead, kleineganz.com. I’ve been developing the persona and social media brand for Kleineganz for a few years now, and it’s now tied…

My Body is Confused

Hey, what’s this? A blog post? From little old me? Yup! My body is continuing to torture me as I enter the end-stages of perimenopause and I just really felt the need to write about it. If discussions of female bodily functions squick you out, you may not want to read this. I just really…

Diet-to-Go Meal Reviews: Day 13

Breakfast: Whole Grain French Toast, Mango Cranberry Syrup (300 Calories) The french toast was fluffy and tasty, and the mango cranberry syrup was a nice compliment, although I still prefer regular syrup with my french toast (just not the sugar free kind they’ve been putting in with some of my breakfasts, those are awful and was…

Breakfast: Egg and Broccoli Pie, Applesauce (390 Calories) This was delicious. Eggs, Broccoli and Cheese. The perfect little breakfast casserole. The applesauce was just your standard Mott’s and I saved it for a mid-morning snack. I definitely want *more*of this one! Lunch: Michigan Turkey Sandwich, Pretzel Roll, Orange Mango Salad (510 Calories) This was just ok. Too…

Dinner: Turkey Salisbury Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Green Beans (420 Calories) The salisbury steak was tasty, although it was shaped like a large meat ball (not sure why they keep doing that but whatever, it still tastes good). The mashed potatoes had a bit of a gritty consistency, but the flavor was fine, especially with the…

Diet-to-Go Meal Reviews: Day 10

Breakfast: Whole Grain Pancakes, Strawberry Maple Syrup, Turkey Sausage, Asparagus (260 Calories) Ok so far this was hands-down the worst meal so far. The pancakes were inedible (it was like trying to chew on frisbee). The asparagus tips were bitter. The turkey sausage was the only thing worth eating. Good thing I wasn’t super hungry! Lunch: Tuscan…

Diet-to-Go Meal Reviews: Day 9

Breakfast: Greek Burrito, Chicken Sausage, Fajita Veggies (320 Calories) The Greek Burrito was basically a wrap with scrambled eggs, spinach and feta cheese. It tasted a bit like spanikopita and was quite delicious. The fajita veggies on the side were an odd choice, but I still ate them. The chicken “sausage” (they should call it a…

Diet-to-Go Meal Reviews: Day 8

Breakfast: Peach Pecan Oatmeal Bar, Tropical Fruit Salad (280 Calories) This was a nice little breakfast bar, full of nuts and oatmeal and fruit. Didn’t taste a lot like peach, but it was good. The tropical fruit salad (mango and pineapple) was also tasty. Lunch: Chicken Florentine Burger, Apple Jello (530 Calories) The chicken burger was served…
