    "Your pre-planned menu made it sort of easy to select restaurant foods"

    Hello Rayzel, this is a note to thank you once again for P3toLife. I am in week 3 of using the simplified plan and oh my gosh! So easy! and I have stayed almost at my LDW or below. Some days a pound up. But right where I need to be. I did have to travel for 4 days, but your pre-planned menu has made it sort of easy to select restaurant foods… I looked for fish, shellfish or grilled anything, along with a vege and/ or a salad. I even successfully got through PF Chang's with no damage.

    Thank you thank you. I wish I had had this the first time I did hCG years back. Maybe I wouldn't be back on it, now….

    • 1 medium acorn squash ends and seeds removed
    • 2 tsp Swerve
    • 2 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted
    • ¼ tsp salt


    • 5 oz 80/20 ground pork
    • 5 oz 90/10 lean ground turkey
    • 1/2 tsp fennel seed
    • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
    • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/4 tsp onion powder
    • 1/4 tsp sea salt
    • 1/8 tsp black pepper


    • 4 cups spring salad mix
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 2 tsp lemon juice
    • 1/4 tsp sea salt


    • PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Slice acorn squash into 1 inch rings and combine in a bowl with coconut oil, swerve, cinnamon and salt. Use hands to coat. Pour onto baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
    • WHILE acorn squash cooks, combine ground pork and turkey together in a mixing bowl along with seasonings. Form into small patties using a scant ¼ cup per patty. Should make about 6 patties total per recipe. Heat a large frying pan oven medium heat and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Place patties in pan and cook 5-6 minutes each side.
    • COMBINE spring salad mix with olive oil, lemon juice and sea salt in a small bowl. Gently toss. Serve roasted acorn squash rings alongside sausage patties and salad. Add additional salt to acorn rings to taste as desired.


    • To eliminate active cooking time, skip the patties aspect. Create a ground sausage scramble using saute function in instant pot, then set to high manual pressure for 5-7 minutes PER LB. So for this recipe as is, I would do abot 7 minu tes to make sure it’s fully cooked.

    INSTANT POT for Acorn Squash:

    • Speed up oven cooking time of the acorn squash by first softening squash in the instant pot! Chop Acorn Squash in half and place with the grate & about 1” of water at the bottom. Set to high manual pressure for 7-10 minutes. Remove /cool, cut into rings, then proceed with the rest of the recipe for the squash.
