Look forward to information on how to get started, how to stay on track, how to shop, how to change not only your eating habits but your outlook – and much much more!! I’m sure I’ll be asking my faithful readers for input such as opinion on cover design and ideas for further content. More details to come so stay tuned! [Read more...]
The following recipe is a tangy tasty salad dressing but could also be great as a marinade for chicken or fish. Also you will find another meatball recipe. This one is so quick and easy and I even made a fast sauce that the kids really liked over their meatballs.
Sun Dried Tomato Salad Dressing
1/2 a jar of sun dried tomatoes
generous amount of olive oil (about 1/2 cup or more if making marinade)
1 big spoonful of capers
juice from 1/2 of a lemon
3-4 garlic cloves
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
sea salt and black pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. I put this over an organic spring lettuce mix salad with some broccoli slaw and 1/2 diced apple.
Meatballs in Minutes
2lbs grass fed ground beef
generous amount of the following: garlic powder, ground marjoram, black pepper, and fresh rosemary
sea salt to taste
Mix all ingredients with your hands. Form golf ball size meatballs and place in a well oiled skillet over medium heat. Brown on all sides, cover and steam for 5-6 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle. Serve alone or with the following sauce.
1 can of tomato bisque soup from Trader Joe’s
1/4 cup organic heavy cream
drippings from meatball pan
Whisk all together in a pan and bring to a simmer. Serve over meatballs if desired.
Also pictured is mashed yams – pressure cook yams for 7 minutes and mash with organic butter, 1/4 cup apple sauce, a dash of nutmeg and ginger, and tons of cinnamon.
