Stir flour, salt, soda in a small bowl and set aside. Whisk eggs, honey, shortening, lemon zest, and poppy seeds in a large bowl. When smooth add dry ingredients and mix well. Make into large muffins or mini, using appropriate sized muffin liners. Cook at 350 until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Large 15 minutes or so, mini 8 minutes or so! So super yummy!
Veggies of choice- diced fine (if you want them a bit soft sauté a bit prior or just use raw- that is what I do)
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Place egg and milk in a bowl and whisk. Place mixture in an oiled griddle. Allow to bubble and then flip. Put cheese and veggies on ½ of omlette and fold other half over it. Top with cheese! When all is melted serve!
Cook Quinoa according to directions. Cook sausage, then remove from pan an dice into bite sized pieces. Put diced onion in pan and saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Add frozen veggies. Cook until warmed through. Add dieced sausage and liquid amino acids. Stir and warm until well heated!
Put all ingredients into a large bowl and mix. Put in lightly oiled pan and sauté until fully cooked.
Place veggies of choice (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, potatoes, zuchinni, etc…) in a bowl, toss with grapeseed oil. Put on baking sheet and roast at 400 degrees until tender. When done (about 30-45 minutes) mix into meat. Add sea salt and pepper to taste!
This recipe is just for Mike, he is our kids piano teacher and our dear friend! He has been eating GF, DF, etc… and having amazing healing going on! I had some extra dinner the other night so I sent some with him for a quick dinner for him and his wife on a cold MN night! He then requested the recipe….so, here you go Mike, hope you and Midge enjoy it!
3 sticks celery- chopped (large bite size, they will cook down)
2 potatoes (or sweet potatoes)- diced in chunks
1 onion diced
2 cloves (or more) crushed garlic
1 32 oz. jar/can diced tomatoes
32 oz. of water
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Saute ground beef with onion and garlic. Add celery, potaotes, carrots, water, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, simmer until veggies are tender. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy! EVEN BETTER DAY 2! I always make this a day ahead and my kids eat so much more, than when we eat it the same day as I make it! Freezes very well!
We will not be meeting this Thursday evening. However, get ready for Feb. when we will kick off this year with MENU PLANNING! Come ready to create your own personalized menu plan to fit your families needs. We will meet in Eden Prarie at Dunn Brothers on Feb. 20th, 7-9pm! WATCH for more details to come!
I have decided I am going to do a year of whole foods: meat, fruit, veggies, nuts, coconut flour, healthy fats: coconut oil/flax/olive, almond flour, garbanzo bean flour and honey! I only focus on what I am eating not what I can’t. This is a choice I am making for myself, no doctor told me to do it. I am seeing how it impacts how I feel, it is takes care of a few minor health issues (back pain and rash on my face), and how my overall health is impacted over the next year (as in colds and such).
So, far it has been easy! I have been creatively making meals that are delicious and healthy. Here is an example of what I had for lunch when my kids had Gluten Free Baked Ziti. I had a greek salad with left over hot wings. It was delicious and satisfied me until my afternoon snack of nuts which got me to dinner!
This week we had a few days off due to the subzero weather. I also had to get creative as I did not want to go out in the cold to restock our cupboards, so I just cooked with what I could find. For lunch I found some GF penne noodles, goat gouda, and spaghetti sauce. Perfect- baked ziti! I was thinking this is a huge lunch however I can use the leftovers for lunch boxes tomorrow! Well…you will see what happend with that idea in a bit.
(I use ½ a block from Costco or 1 block from Trader Joes which I would guess is about 2c. total)
Dried: orageno, basil, thyme
Cook noodles according to directions on the box. In a 9x13 pan dump the spaghetti sauce and stir in the ½ the cheese. When the noodles are done strain and dump into the sauce mixture. Stir until well coated. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake for about ½ hour in a 350 degree oven!
I made the ziti with salad and everyone loved it! Here is what happened to my leftovers however….
