Chicken Meatballs with Sun Dried Tomato and Artichoke Sauce

I don’t eat most of the foods that I ate before my surgery. Pasta, bread, rice, potatoes, all sugars – all out. I eat mostly meat, eggs, and tofu with a few bites of soft veggies if I still have room. Some meats still make me nauseous, but my repertoire is slowly expanding.

Healthy Baked Falafels Recipe

I love this falafel recipe. We’ve been making them for over ten years. Our kids won’t eat them, but they are great for a date night. We also make them sometimes and nuke some chicken nuggets for the kids. If you make these, you absolutely must make the tzatziki sauce that goes with them. Having them without is like eating plain dry spaghetti noodles. Maybe you like dry spaghetti noodles, but I promise that they’re better with sauce. These are just like that.

Last Sunday, it was our turn to bring the snacks for the small group meeting we attend at church. The other group members had set the bar high – homemade guacamole (that was amazing), fruit trays, tortilla pinwheels, and spinach and artichoke dip (also amazing). We had planned to bring a fruit tray, but there were none available at Walmart. Bummer. The only produce that looked nice was the apples. We bought 6 of them, 3 red and 3 green, and arranged pretty apple slices on a tray. Something was missing. We needed some fruit dip. I have a good … Read more
