I wish  I could sit one more time at my parents dinner table and be served my moms “Quer Durch Den Garten” eintopf. Of course, as a child, veggies and stews were not exactly big time favorites, but, as with so many memories, decades later all we usually remember are the good parts of our experiences and so it is with this dish – so, one more time please 🙂
This dish shows up in many homes nowadays but its new name is usually  “clear out the fridge”.
But, what was then, way back, poetically called “quer durch den garten” (across the garden) was literally just that – everything that was ripe in the vegetable garden and had to be used up before it spoiled. Therefore, during harvest time in our back of the house small veggie garden, “quer durch den garten” was a dish that showed up a bit too often. Always a bit different, sometimes added pasta or rice instead of potatoes, usually different vegetables (whatever was ready for consumption) and most always a different protein – bacon, sausage, chicken, beef, or a combination of whatever was available. Obviously, this is one of my favorite dishes now, but back then…….. 😦
So here it is, in honor of my mom’s “Quer Durch Den Garten” eintopf:

Meal Plan-Week Three

Meal Plan – Week Three

>
>

Update after my own completion of Week Four of  “ Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food ” meal plan  :
>
During the four weeks I have adhered (more or less 😦 ) strictly to my “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan, I have lost a total of 24.5 lbs of weight. (From 286.5 lbs on January 19th, to 262 lbs on February 16th).
But most importantly for me, for the past 4 weeks (starting on February 11th), I do not have the need to inject myself twice a day with Insulin (I still take Metformin for my Diabetis). This is a decision I have made after monitoring my blood sugar levels 8 – 10 times a day and having an average blood sugar level of 100, compared with fluctuating levels of anywhere between 75 and 500 before starting  “Hans’ Lighter, Healthier Comfort Food” meal plan.
,
However, please note that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you change your medication without consulting your physician first, even getting a second or third opinion before considering any changes !!!
,
I am sure that other changes in my life style, such as more exercise, as well as alcohol abstinence and refraining from smoking have greatly contributed to my overall improvement of physical and mental well-being (gone are the sluggishness and low energy, depressions and dark moods)
After just one month, I feel much better, sleep much better and on top of all the benefits of living a bit more on the sensible side of life, I eat as much as I want, when I want and what I want. (Except on the two days of the week which allow me a dinner of anything I crave, although in much smaller portions than I was used to).
