  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled

Remaining Ingredients:

  • ¼ c. extra virgin olive oil

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Combine the olive oil, vinegar, parsley, cilantro, garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and cumin in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and set aside.

Step 2

In a small glass bowl, combine the olive oil, lime juice, and chopped garlic with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Step 3

Place the flank steak in a large, sealable plastic bag and add the olive oil mixture. Tightly seal the bag and turn a couple times to coat the steak in the marinade. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to overnight.

Step 4

To prepare, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and allow excess to drip off before adding to the hot skillet. Cook the steak for 3-4 minutes, then turn and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes for medium-rare results. Adjust cooking times to reach the desired level of doneness.

Step 5

Remove from heat and transfer steak to a cutting surface. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into very thin slices against the grain. To serve, drizzle steak with some Chimichurri sauce and pass remaining sauce for those who prefer a little more. Enjoy!

Mustard Pork Loin with Thyme-Roasted Carrots

Mustard Pork Loin with Thyme-Roasted Carrots

Eating naturally sweet foods like carrots and sweet potatoes is a great way to keep your sweet tooth at bay. Roasting these vegetables brings out their natural sugars and makes them taste even sweeter. The sweetness of these thyme-roasted carrots works perfectly with the savory mustard pork loin.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4 – 6

Ingredients

2 lbs. pounds pork loin
2 T. Dijon mustard
2 T. sugar-free whole grain mustard
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

1 lb. tri-color baby carrots
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 T. balsamic vinegar
1 T. coconut oil, melted
2 T. fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Place the pork loin in the center of the lined baking sheet and set aside.

In a small glass or other non-reactive bowl, combine the Dijon and whole-grain mustard with the olive oil. Massage the pork loin with the mustard mixture, then sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place the baby carrots in a large bowl and add the garlic, balsamic vinegar, coconut oil, and fresh thyme. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and toss to combine.

Spread the carrots in a single layer around the seasoned pork tenderloin on the baking sheet and pour any remaining juices from the bowl on top.

Cook for 20 minutes, then remove the baking sheet from the oven and flip the pork. Cook for another 15-20 minutes, or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of at least 145° for medium-rare and the carrots are nicely caramelized.

Remove from oven and let pork loin rest for 3-5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm with roasted baby carrots. Enjoy!

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Pat chicken drumsticks dry with a paper towel and place in a large, sealable plastic bag. Set aside.

In a medium glass or other non-reactive bowl, whisk the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, coconut aminos, chicken stock, red pepper flakes, and minced garlic together. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

 

Step 2

Pour one half of the balsamic marinade over chicken and seal bag tightly. Turn bag over until chicken is coated. Place bag in refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes to overnight. Reserve remaining marinade to use later.

 

Step 3

When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 400° and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove drumsticks from plastic bag and arrange on lined baking sheet in a single layer without overcrowding. Discard remaining marinade inside bag.

 

Step 4

Place baking sheet in preheated oven for 30 minutes, then remove chicken from oven and turn each drumstick. After turning, brush the tops of each drumstick with remaining marinade and return to oven. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is well done and the outside has caramelized.

 

Step 5

Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Transfer drumsticks to a serving dish and sprinkle with sliced green onions before serving.

Mistake #6 – I followed the wrong rules

I think we’ve all heard that portion control is key to weight loss, because even too much ‘healthy’ food can still lead to eating too many calories. This is true but the mistake here is that we’re so tuned out to our body’s messages, we can’t hear what it’s trying to...

Top 10 Tips for a Lower Sugar Diet

Top 10 Tips – Living Low Carb

 

1. Citrus zest is a great way to add bright bursts of flavor to your recipes. Use a microplane or zester to collect as much of the brightly colored outer layer as possible without harvesting the bitter white layer beneath. If you collect more than you can immediately use, freeze or oven dry the zest to add to soups and stews or to make seasoned salts, marinades, and salad dressings later.

2. It is much easier to collect the zest from the whole fruit, so always zest lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruit before you peel, juice, or slice them.

3. If possible, buy organic citrus for zesting because the outer layer of the fruit is most exposed to the harsh chemicals and pesticides used on non-organic crops.

4. As you cook, store leftover edible vegetable scraps in a freezer-safe bag. Use frozen vegetable scraps whenever you make a new batch of vegetable, chicken, or beef stock.

5. When making a frittata, add salt and pepper to the egg as you whisk it. This will ensure the seasoning is evening distributed throughout the recipe vs. just sprinkling it on top at the end.

6. To remove the harsh bite from the red onion, add slices to a bowl of water or white vinegar for approximately 15 minutes. Remove from liquid and pat dry before using.

7. When working with whole black peppercorns, it’s best to start with very small amounts and adjust upwards. The heat from freshly ground whole peppercorns is more intense than store-bought ground pepper.

8. When braising or brining with pickle juice, resist the temptation to add additional salt to your main dish or other side dishes you plan to serve. The juice has a naturally tangy, salty flavor that doesn’t need a lot of enhancement.

9. When blending hot ingredients in a blender, make sure the lid is adequately ventilated to prevent an “explosion” of hot ingredients when you turn it on.

10. Low heat is key to making stovetop frittatas. Fliipping a whole frittata is cumbersome, but if you keep the heat low, it will have time to cook through without overcooking the bottom.

Bonus Tip:

11. When making frittatas in a cast iron skillet, make sure it is well-seasoned. Otherwise, the egg will stick to the bottom and be difficult to get out of the pan.

About this Recipe

Once you make your own vegetable stock, you won’t want to ever buy it again. It’s so quick and easy to make, and it is a great way to use up all those fresh herbs and vegetables you didn’t get around to using. Simply freeze whatever portion you don’t use right away, and then pull it out whenever you want to make a quick soup, stew or slow cooker meal.

Ingredients

 

  • ¼ c. olive oil

  • 2 large onions, peeled and cut into chunks

  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed

  • 3 large carrots, cut into chunks

  • 3 stalks celery, cut into chunks

  • water to cover

  • 8 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 handful whole fresh parsley

  • small handful whole peppercorns

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Add olive oil to a large stockpot and heat over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, carrots, and celery to heated olive oil and sauté for 5 or 6 minutes, or until the flavor is released.

Step 2

Add enough water to cover the vegetables, followed by thyme, rosemary, bay leaf, parsley and peppercorns. Heat mixture over medium-high heat until it just about boils, and then reduce heat to medium-low. Give it a quick stir and simmer, uncovered, for about an hour. (The exact amount of time doesn’t matter – the longer it simmers, the better the flavor will be).

Step 3

Place a stainless steel colander over a large pot in the sink. Carefully pour contents of stockpot into the colander to separate out the solids from the liquid. Discard solids and allow liquid to cool completely before transferring to freezer safe-storage containers. Freeze until ready to use.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2

Butterfly the chicken by running a sharp knife horizontally through the thickest part of each breast.

Place one hand on top of the breast to stabilize while holding the knife parallel to the work surface while cutting. Do not cut all the way through. Open the breast so both halves can lie flat.

Step 3

Season the exposed surface with salt and pepper, then add 1/4 of the goat cheese, crumbled bacon, and sliced basil leaves to each breast.

Fold the breasts in half so the cheese mixture is surrounded by chicken breast on the bottom, back and top. Secure with long wooden toothpicks, if desired..

Step 4

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large oven-safe skillet. Once hot, add the stuffed chicken breasts to the pan to sear.

Once browned on the bottom, carefully turn each breast over and repeat on the other side. Season top and bottom with salt and pepper, if desired, during this process.

Step 5

Place skillet in preheated oven and cook until an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees when inserted, approximately 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cover until ready to serve.

Step 6

A few minutes before removing the chicken from the oven, start making the balsamic glaze. Heat balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan over medium-high heat. Stir while heating until the vinegar is reduced to about 1/3 of its original volume. It will form a thick, syrupy consistency when it is ready. 

To serve, place a stuffed chicken breast on each plate and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Pairs well with a mixed green salad or roasted vegetables

About this Recipe

These quick-pickled jalapeno peppers and onions are delicious on top of your favorite Mexican or Tex Mex dishes.

  • ¾ c. white vinegar
  • ¾ c. water
  • 2 T. kosher salt
  • 2 T. honey, preferably local
  • 3-4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced thin
  • 5-6 jalapeno peppers, sliced into rounds, seeds removed

Safety Tip:Wear gloves when handling jalapeno peppers to prevent burning.
