I love the way I feel after I've had spinach. There's no comparison. Paired up with a powerful burst of lemon and the high effects from antioxidants in thyme and oregano no one can lose. I only had chicken legs in the house, but I used a food thermometer for the first time and they came out perfect.

I had felt lonely and desperate to connect physical and emotional abuse to autoimmune diseases. A group I joined, with a doctor in charge, I had been sharing my personal story feeling the connection. I have seen the threads open up since then with the many beautifully shared stories from women to the same connection solidifying my thoughts bringing comfort sealing the statistics. I remember pleading for help when I could feel what the poisons had done to me with a reply 'Why do you want to do something with this' feeling devastation. #autoimmunedisease #abuse #lorijeanfinnila

Healthy Thyme, Lemon, and Garlic Roasted Chicken #lorijeanfinnilainthekitchen #healthyeating #medicinalbenefits
This is an easy chicken with many healthy benefits from garlic and thyme. Just squeeze half a lemon over chicken after rubbing olive oil on it. Add sea salt, ground black pepper, and thyme all over. Thinly slice 2 large garlic cloves and stick them under the chicken skin throughout including the cavity. Use a couple of slices to gently rub over chicken before spices for a robust hit. Put the leftover squeezed lemon inside chicken and a bit of filtered water on the bottom on the pan. You can add water to the lemon juices and olive oil mixed with drippings for a gravy the next day after skimming off the fat on top. Yummy!

Chicken Pasta Salad with Apple Cider Vinegar Green Herb Dressing #lorijeanfinnilainthekitchen #healthyfood
1 1/2 c. uncooked pasta
1/2 c. steamed organic sliced carrots
1/2 c. steamed organic broccoli
1 lb. chicken breast
Dressing : 1/2 tsp organic herb spices
3 tbsp organic Apple cider vinegar
1/4 c. Organic olive oil
1 clove of garlic minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta al dente. Drain and put in the freezer for 10 minutes. Chop the chicken into cubes. (I used roasted chicken from yesterday.) Steam carrots and broccoli till tender. I would use two different pots or times for these. Chop the broccoli when done. Put both in freezer for ten minutes. Make your dressing while your ingredients chill. Then mix everything together including the dressing. I added 1 tbsp at a time for the dressing. I had some leftover. This will make 3 or 4 servings great for a light cool summer dinner or lunch.

Lori's Ground Turkey Meatballs with Thyme, Oregano, and Crushed Tomatoes #healthyfood #yummyeats #lorijeanfinnilainthekitchen
Today I made some meatballs out of ground turkey. Red meat hasn't been agreeing with me during this pandemic and my stomach is also uneasy to strong spices right now as well.
Lori's Turkey Meatballs
1 lb. Ground Turkey (I use no spice natural flavoring.)
3 cloves of minced organic garlic
1/2 a medium organic onion finely chopped
1 tsp organic oregano
1/4 tsp of organic thyme and a pinch
1 1/2 tbsp organic Olive oil
3 slices organic white bread
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp organic black ground pepper
1/8 c. Organic milk
24 ounces of unsalted organic crushed tomatoes
Place ground turkey in a large bowl. Put bread in toaster to lightly brown. Mince garlic and chop onion. Add to ground turkey. Also add 1/4 tsp thyme, Oregano, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Add 1/2 tbsp olive oil and milk. Break the toasted bread into tiny pieces and add to mixture. Stir together slowly to give the bread time to incorporate into the stuffing mixture. Once mixed through let it set while you put 1 tbsp of olive oil into a large fry pan at medium heat. Roll 15 meatballs, almost 1/4 c. of ground turkey meatball mixture. Once the pan is sizzling add all meatballs and brown 3-4 minutes on each side. Add sauce, pinch of thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir everything and simmer for 2 hours. Serve over your favorite pasta. I suggest spaghetti or penne.
