Whole Foods Study September 20

This is of course day 6 of the whole food study in which I am participating. It also marks my fourth soda-free day in a row.

Anyway, today I baked hormone- and antibiotic-free chicken breast that we got from a local butcher. It was also my first real try of cooking with coconut oil. (I infused it with herbs and garlic and put it on the chicken before baking).

I also created my own recipe for a sauce. I used red wine vinegar and horseradish mustard. Both were prior purchases from Trader Joe's, but I made sure to check the ingredients anyway (to make sure there was no sugar or other suspect additions).

When I looked for something to thicken the sauce with, I found some old whole grain brown rice flour in the cupboard, so I used that.

Want the full recipe for the sauce? You can find it in this post.
