Tricks for Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs

Tricks-Peeling-Hard-Boiled-Eggs

If anyone would like to share their secret for peeling hard boiled eggs, I would love to know. I have some theories and I’m willing to share them of course, but I really think it depends on the egg! I’ve tried using old eggs and new eggs, and sometimes the older the better, other times, not so much.

Tuna and Egg Salad on Romain lettuce

What is it about lettuce that makes it such a divine alternative to bread? I made myself some tuna and egg salad, which has always been a favorite of mine since I was little, but since I stopped eating bread years ago, I have found Romain lettuce to be the perfect alternative to bread.

Quick and Easy Mushroom Soup Recipe

Mushroom Soup Recipe

I decided to make some mushroom soup with some chicken broth left over from a chicken that I baked. Since I’m doing keto and because I have all of my groceries delivered I was low on vegetables so the best I could do was cream of mushroom soup.  I didn’t even have an onion 🙁 but decided to have a go at it anyway.

Hempseed Florets

Looking for a substitute for grains? Here you go!

I don’t think there’s a better substitute for grain than hempseed florets. I like them as a morning cereal or as a substitute for rice at dinner.  They are loaded with protein, 10 grams per 3 tablespoons. They also have 15 g of polyunsaturated fat, the good fat, and finally and best of all, they have effectively one carbohydrate.

I usually use the hempseed florets as a cold cereal in the morning. They’re perfect on a keto diet! I put berries on top, some cinnamon and heavy cream. If I’m not doing keto, I use coconut or almond milk. I like this warm as well as cold.

Another great way to use hemp seed florets is in place of rice. When I use it as a rice substitute, I heat it up in water or I sauté it with onions and celery. For the sauté, use a tablespoon of coconut oil and a half cup of diced celery and onion. Sauté celery and onion until translucent then add the hemp seed florets last. Season to taste. I use adobo seasoning on mine. Hempseed is the perfect complement to any meat or dish that you would normally serve with rice.

For more information on the health benefits of Hempseed florets be sure to check out the newsletter entitled Hemp as a Super Food.

Recipe: Cauliflower Chili

recipe

For those of you who are unaware, Cincinnati is chili country. We have strong opinions about chili in the Queen City. So I decided to try out my clean chili recipe on my unsuspecting neighbors at our block party last weekend. If I may brag for a moment, I won the “Best Chili” award!

So what set my chili apart? Cauliflower.

Yes, you read that right. It can be used to make pizza dough, rice, and mashed “potatoes.”It is an excellent substitute and incredibly versatile. But even more than that, it is so good for you!

Back to the block party. Everyone was shocked that my chili was meatless, vegan, and grain free, because it had so much flavor and such a wonderful meaty texture. When I revealed that cauliflower was the secret ingredient, everyone wanted the recipe.

Here’s what you need:

4 large carrots

1 large onion

6 cloves of garlic

2 bags of frozen rinsed cauliflower

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup organic cacao

2 tbsp organic cinnamon

1 tbsp bourbon smoked paprika

2 jars of organic basil marinara

Start by prepping your vegetables. Peel your carrots, peel your onion and pull out your cauliflower.

img_0243

Is this amazing frozen cauliflower? I love that you can get heirloom organic varieties in the frozen food section!

Give that cauliflower a really good rinse.

Look at all this amazing color! I love it!

Look at all this amazing color! I love it!

 

Next you are going to pull out your food processor and pulse the carrots, onion, garlic and frozen cauliflower. Keep it chunky. We don’t want teeny tiny bits, we want this to have that wonderful mouth feel that typical chili has.

I pulse the carrots first.

I pulse the carrots first.

img_0246

Pulse the onion and garlic. I used red onion because I had it on hand. Whatever onion you have on hand will work.

img_0244

Add the cauliflower and keep pulsing.

Then take 1/2 cup of coconut oil and heat it up in large pot. Throw in the vegetables and sauté them until they start to soften. Add cumin, salt and white pepper to taste. Add cacao, cinnamon, and bourbon smoked paprika. The vegetables should be coated in the spices.

img_0252

Your kitchen should be smelling amazing right now.

I want you to add two jars of organic basil marinara.

img_0253

This is the marinara sauce I use. You can find it at Whole Foods.

Then you are going to lower the heat way down and walk away. Let this thing cook down for an hour, maybe two and let the flavors come together. Every once in a while, check it, give it a stir, make sure it isn’t burning on the bottom.

In the end, it will look like this:

img_0254

Doesn’t this look amazing?

This recipe has minimal prep time, with maximum flavor. Make it this weekend and you’ll have lunch all week long. Try it and tell me what you think!

Fastest Dinner in the West

Okay people. You went crazy for this on Facebook, so I’m officially posting my fastest clean eating dinner in the (Mid)west.

This is wild caught red Alaskan salmon that I cooked in raw butter. (don’t cook fish in coconut oil because it turns it into fish mush. Coconut oil is wonderful when you want to tenderize something but not so wonderful for fish.)
I had it with root vegetables that I get at Costco, frozen. (They offer a fabulous variety of frozen organic vegetables at around six dollars for a five pound bag. You can’t beat them!) I spiced it all up with my Bourbon smoked paprika blend. Yummy and I really don’t care for salmon that much, but this was scrumptious.

It can’t get any easier than this. Organic frozen veg? Wild caught fish? My dinner was ready in 30 min.

And you know I had my Q ginger ale.

wild caught salmon and roasted root veg

Go forth and eat clean, my friends.

Gluten-Free Brownies

 

Ingredients: (Use all organic)

5 ounces high quality 100% cocoa dark chocolate

½ cup organic coconut oil

½ coconut sugar

½ cup Norbu sugar

1/2 cup almond meal

1/4 cup sorghum flour

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 organic free-range eggs, beaten well with a fork

1 tablespoon bourbon vanilla*

 

Optional:

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Dark chocolate chips for the top

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line an 8×8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.

Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan over low heat, gently stirring. (Or melt in a microwave safe measuring cup and stir together to combine.)

In a mixing bowl whisk together the brown sugar, almond meal, sorghum flour, fine sea salt and baking soda. Make a well in the center and add the beaten eggs, vanilla extract and melted dark chocolate mixture. Beat on low-medium for two minutes, until the batter begins to come together. At first it will seem thin, like cake batter, but keep beating until it thickens and becomes smooth and glossy.

If you are adding nuts, stir in the nuts by hand and spread the batter into the prepared baking pan. Even out the batter with a silicone spatula.

Stud the top with some dark chocolate chips and press in slightly.

Bake in the center of a preheated 350ºF oven for 32 to 35 minutes, or until the brownies are set. The top will crack, like a flourless chocolate cake.

Cool on a wire rack; and remove the cooled brownies from the pan by gripping the foil edges and lifting the brownies out as a whole.

Chill for an hour before cutting. (Though warm and gooey is really divine, if you don’t mind them falling apart.)

Yield: 16 servings

*For chocolate-mint brownies use 1 teaspoon peppermint extract and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Salted Coconuts


Ingredients

6 oz Macadamia nuts

6 oz. Walnuts

6 oz. Brazil nuts

Coconut Oil

Seasonings of your choice

Directions:

In the microwave warm

¼ cup coconut oil

Add:

Himalayan Pink Salt

Garlic powder (or your favorite spices)

Put into a Mason jar and add the nuts. Shake it up until nuts are well coated. Dump onto paper towels and salt nuts if more salt is needed. Put back into jar and refrigerate. Eat cold.

You can also use Norbu or coconut sugar in the coconut oil to make a sweet version. I still put in a little bit of salt.

Melt in Your Mouth High Protein Low Fat Fudge

fudge
Melt over very low heat:

2 4oz packages of SunSpire organic baking bar 100% unsweetened cacao

16 ounces of Nutiva coconut manna or Artisana Raw coconut butter

1 ½ cups XYLITOL sugar

1 cup shredded coconut – medium shred

1 cup shelled hemp seed Florettes

When well blended pour into silicone cupcake holders and freeze. Pop out of holders and store in freezer or refrigerator.

Alternatively, grease glass pan, pour in mixture and refrigerate until solid enough to cut into bars.

Must be kept cold until eaten.

The fat in this fudge is metabolized as almost pure energy as it is primarily a medium chain fat, which does not store as a fat but is used by the liver. So this fudge will give you a kick of energy and no guilt!

Gluten-Free Organic Protein Bars

Protein-Bars-wide
In a sauce pan over very low heat stir:

4 oz. 100% Sunspire dark chocolate bar

½ cup almond butter

½ cup cold pressed coconut oil

½ cup Norbu sugar and ½ cup honey or coconut crystals (Or you can use only Norbu for zero calories from sugar)

 

In a mixing bowl toss:

1 cup hemp florets

1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup Naked Whey (Grass Fed Naked Whey Protein Powder)

½ cup raisins

½ cup mixed dry antioxidant fruits

Pour warm mixture into mixing bowl and toss with a fork until well mixed

 

Grease a glass pan with coconut oil and spread mix.

Freeze for 1 hour, long enough to be able to cut into bars

Refreeze and keep frozen until a few minutes before enjoying!

Hummus

//whitneyinchicago.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/chipotle_hummus/

//whitneyinchicago.wordpress.com/2010/04/17/chipotle_hummus/

Ingredients:

16 ounce bag of frozen spinach or frozen kale.

16 ounce box of garbanzo beans

16 ounce carton of kalona cottage cheese or any 100% grass fed to cottage cheese full fat

1/4 cup garlic juice or garlic to taste garlic salt & garlic pepper to taste

Directions:

Nuke the frozen spinach or kale in the microwave and drain/press out all of the water

Mix all ingredients together into a food processor until creamy and smooth

Chocolate Sauce

chocolate sauce

Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients

1/2 cup of organic, unrefined coconut oil

4 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons of raw, unsweetened cacao powder

2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons of grade b maple syrup, coconut syrup or raw, local honey

1/4 teaspoon of pure organic vanilla extract

1-2 pinches of sea salt-I recommend Pink Himalayan or Celtic

Directions

Add the coconut oil to a small sauce pan and melt on low. When liquid, remove from the heat and stir in the cacao powder. Mix until all the lumps are dissolved, then stir in the maple syrup or honey, vanilla extract and sea salt.

Variations:

To use as a syrup, serve immediately.

As a sauce, let it cool for 10-15 minutes, which will cause it to thicken.

If you want a “magic shell” effect, simply pour the chocolate over a cold dessert such as ice cream and give it a few minutes to harden. Coconut oil solidifies when it’s cold, so this is completely natural!

Obesity and Eating Disorder Recovery Recipe: Jill Escher’s Power Breakfast

In my experience, clients that are in treatment for bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.

Eating healthy can be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. The key is in the planning. When you get into the habit of having the right ingredients on hand, meal preparation is a breeze, not a source of agony.

On WEDNESDAY February 26 at 7:30 pm EST, we’ll welcome Jill Escher to the show. Jill is the author of Farewell, Club Perma-Chub: A Sugar Addict’s Guide to Easy Weight Loss and founder of www.endsugaraddiction.com. The recipe below is one of Jill’s favorite breakfast recipes! This breakfast may seem unusual at first, but it is super nutritious and delicious, costs next to nothing, and takes only minutes to make.

  1. Chop 3-5 fresh organic veggies of your preference into rather small pieces. Veggies can include, for example, broccoli, carrots, jicama, radishes, celery, kale, red or green cabbage. It’s easiest to do this just twice a week, storing your chopped veggie mix in a container in the fridge.
  2. Add fats, either organic olive oil or organic avocado oil, maybe some chopped organic avocado, plus some balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle salt to taste. Mix it all up. Add organic sunflower seeds or chopped organic almonds or organic macadamia nuts if desired.
  3. Top it with a dollop of chopped organic chicken liver and/or organic eggs and/or leftover organic, grassfed meat from last night’s dinner.

But you ask, how does Jill make chopped liver in the first place? Here’s her favorite way, and it’s super easy:

Place one pound of fresh, organic chicken livers on a baking tray. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until well browned, flipping them halfway. Take a large onion and sautee it in a big dollop of rendered duck fat (available at US Wellness Meats, Whole Foods and other finer grocery stores) til translucent, almost browning. Add the baked livers, a dash of balsamic vinegar, some salt, and if you like, an organic hardboiled egg or two. Then place the whole shebang in a food processor til it looks like, you know, chopped liver. Yum!

What a way to start your day, all the nutrition your body could need, a treat for the digestion, and zero blood sugar spike. You will never, ever dream of cereal, waffles, pancakes, donuts, bagels, muffins or toast again.

Lemon Carrot Cake Pops

Ingredients:

For the Filling –

2 large Granny Smith Apples (about 1 lb), peeled, cored & quartered
1 large carrot (add more carrots and/or apples if they are small)
1/2 cup or more shredded coconut
3 Tablespoons cashew butter
1/3 cup crushed or finely ground pecans, raw or toasted
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
1 teaspoon 100% vanilla extract
2 tsp lemon juice and zest of one medium lemon
2 teaspoons apple juice
pinch of salt

For the Coating –
1/2 cup coconut butter, melted
2 tablespoons unrefined/cold pressed coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon 100% vanilla extract
zest of one medium sized lemon
coconut nectar
2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar

Grate the prepared apples and carrots.
Combine and squeeze the mixture a few times.
Transfer to a fine mesh strainer and press out as much juice as you can.
Set the juice aside and transfer the pulp into a medium sized bowl.
Add lemon zest to the bowl.
Add in coconut, cashew butter, pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut palm sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, apple juice, and salt.
Combine well, using hands. Form into a ball.
Roll into 10 golf-ball sized balls. If too dry, add more juice. If too wet, add more coconut.
Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
Add a lollipop or popsicle stick if making cake pops, skip this step if you are making cake balls.
Freeze for 45 minutes, or until firm.

Next, melt coconut butter and coconut oil until just melted. Combine in short drinking glass with vanilla, lemon zest, coconut nectar, and coconut palm sugar.
To assemble cake pops, take an egg carton, turn upside down, poke medium sized holes into each section. If you’re making cake balls, skip this step and just line a baking sheet with parchment.
Dip each cake ball in the coating. Let the excess coating drip off.
Stir coating mixture occasionally. Coating should harden.
Place each cake pop (stick side down) into a section of the egg carton.
Once all cake pops are dipped, dip each cake pop a second time. Let coating harden, transfer to a container, store in fridge.

To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.

  • 2 -4 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup apple cider or white vinegar
  • Sea salt

Directions:

1. Boil peppers in water for about 10 minutes, or until jalapenos turn from deep emerald-like green to an olive green (They should be soft, but not mushy).

2. Remove peppers from water and cut off stem caps, but do not remove seeds unless you want your hot sauce to be milder.

3. Place peppers, tomatoes, garlic, and a teaspoon of salt into a food processor.

4. Blend in the food processor for 20-30 seconds, depending upon desired consistency.

5. Taste the sauce, and if necessary, add more salt (pulse-mix a few times to stir in any added salt).

Obesity and Eating Disorder Recovery Recipe: Apple Crisp

In my experience, clients that are in treatment for bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.

Eating healthy can be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. The key is in the planning. When you get into the habit of having the right ingredients on hand, meal preparation is a breeze, not a source of agony.

Eating Disorder Recovery: Apple Crisp

BAKED APPLE CRISP

Filling Ingredients*

  • 5 granny smith apples – peeled, cored, quartered, and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Toss sliced apples with lemon juice from ½ lemon to prevent browning.
  • 1/2 cup grassfed butter
  • 2/3 cup coconut crystals sugar
  • 1 tsp. each cinnamon, nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. ginger (optional)
  • 1 Tbsps. Water

Directions for Filling

Melt butter in a large skillet over low heat.

Stir in sugar and spices until sugar begins to dissolve, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add apples and enough water to prevent sticking; continue cooking and stirring until apples soften and are coated with sauce, 4 to 5 minutes.

Topping Ingredients*

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup organic rolled oats or 1/2 cup hulled hemp seeds
  • ½ cup coconut crystals sugar
  • 1 tsp. each cinnamon, nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. ginger (optional)
  • 1 beaten egg
  • ½ cup grass-fed butter

Directions for topping:

Mix dry ingredients (flour, rolled oats, or hemp, sugar and spices) together in a large bowl. Toss in beaten egg and melted butter. Toss until well blended.

Pour apples and sugar mixture into a 2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle topping evenly over the apple filling.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Bake in the preheated oven until the top is browned and the filling is bubbling up around the edges, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes and serve with full fat cream, milk, whipped cream or a scoop of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, which is made with grass-fed cream.

Serves 8.

*All ingredients should be organic when possible.

Using Oats – 435 calories, 28 g of fat, 4 g of protein, 44 g of carbs, 8 g of fiber

Substitutes

You can substitute Jovial Foods Ginger Spice Cookies for the flour and oats, by either putting them into a food processor (which makes this a very quick recipe) or rolling them out between two sheets of waxed paper or parchment paper. If you use the food processor, throw the rest of the ingredients in to finish blending the topping.

To make this even more of a Thanksgiving dish, you can add cranberries. I like to buy them fresh and cook them into a compote, using a cup of the coconut sugar and enough water to cover the cranberries. Then just substitute 1 cup of the cooked cranberries for 2 of the apples.

Clean Eating Recipe: Chicken, Green Bean, and Mushroom Soup

chickengreenbeansoup

I made THE most delicious soup yesterday! It only took five minutes to make and clean-up was a breeze!

How’d I make it? I started by sauteing some mushrooms in coconut oil. Next, I added in some sliced up leftover cooked organic chicken breast that was seasoned with basil, garlic, and sea salt. Once the mushrooms were cooked and the chicken was slightly browned, I added in some cooked organic green beans and bone broth. I let it simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors meld together.

The results were incredible! It was satisfying and the flavor was divine! I heated up the leftovers for lunch today, and it was even better!

Clean Eating Recipe: Tuna Salad

tuna salad clean eating

Tuna salad is a favorite food of many of my patients that are in treatment for eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and bulimarexia. It’s easy to make, scrumptious, and full of protein! To avoid some of the not-so-healthy ingredients in store-bought mayo, I make my own. It’s so simple to make. Homemade mayo is mouthwatering and delicious; it beats the taste of store-bought mayo any day! My tuna salad recipe has become a favorite among family, friends, and patients. Organic, pasture-raised, chicken can also be substituted for the tuna to create an amazing chicken salad!

What kind of canned tuna is healthiest? According to Dr. Cate Shanahan, it is best to buy tuna that is in olive oil, rather than water. Olive oil preserves the essential omega-3 fats better than water. However, if it’s packed in another oil (such as canola, sunflower or cottonseed oil), Shanahan recommends opting for water-packed tuna. Canola, sunflower, and cottonseed oils tend to oxidize during processing. Not good news for your heart!

Tuna Salad

1-2 cans of wild-caught tuna, drained and flaked with fork (or cooked and cooled organic chicken, cubed)
chopped onion (to taste)
chopped celery (to taste)
4 egg whites (sauteed in olive oil and chopped) – save the egg yolks for homemade mayo
homemade mayonnaise (recipe follows below)
raisins or grapes (to taste)

Combine all ingredients. Serve on top of lettuce leaves, with a side of organic tomato slices and dill pickles.

Coconut Oil Mayonnaise

4 egg yolks + 1 whole egg
1/4 tsp ground sea salt
1/4 tsp garlic salt
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/4-1/2 c white wine vinegar – (Coconut Secrets Vinegar)
2/3-1 c coconut oil

In food processor, very slowly process egg yolks and whole egg.
With processor still running, slowly add in sea salt, garlic salt, lemon juice, and vinegar ingredients until completely mixed.
Test for degree of saltiness and salt to taste.
With processor running, add coconut oil and continue processing until blended completely.

Clean Eating Recipe: Strawberries and Coconut Palm Sugar

Strawberries and Palm Sugar

If you’re looking for an easy, yet delicious dessert recipe, look no further! This delicious dessert can be prepared in a matter of minutes and only contains two ingredients – organic strawberries and organic palm sugar! Strawberries dipped in Coconut Palm Sugar. Both of these ingredients are fantastic on their own; combining them is a recipe for success!

This recipe is particularly useful for my patients that are in recovery for an eating disorder, since it doesn’t require much time in the kitchen…a place that can cause anxiety for those in early recovery.

As we discussed in an earlier blog post, organic coconut palm sugar has many health benefits, including:

  • Palm sugar is non-GMO, 100% organic, and unrefined
  • Palm sugar is rich in vitamins and amino acids
  • Palm sugar has a low glycemic index

Strawberries are an antioxidant-rich food; they are ranked the 4th best fruit in terms of antioxidant capacity. As we talked about in my article about premature aging, antioxidants are a key element in slowing down the aging process. Antioxidant-rich foods also help in replenishing vitamins and minerals within the body, supporting the immune system, improving mental function, and restoring energy. These are all very common issues that my patients experience upon entering treatment for their eating disorder.

Eat Clean, Commit to be Fit, and Live Healthy! And of course….Bon Appetit!

Clean Eating Recipe: Cooking with Bone Broth

bone broth eating disorder recovery

“Indeed, stock is everything in cooking. Without it, nothing can be done.” -Auguste Escoffier

There is so much truth to this quote! I recently started incorporating bone broth into my diet every day. When they say “Let food be thy medicine”, this is definitely one of the foods they are talking about! The healing benefits are seemingly endless, especially to the individual recovering from an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, or bulimarexia. Bone broth provides support to the adrenals, teeth, bones, and helps in recovery from leaky gut. As an added benefit, it makes everything taste mouth-watering and delicious! You don’t have to be a chef to make bone broth, it is really easy to make!

Bone Broth Recipe

Ingredients:

1 gallon of filtered water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (per gallon of water)
10 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup coarse Himalayan sea salt
pepper
your favorite herbs and spices
8-10 grass-fed beef bones with marrow
8-10 carrots
1-2 onions
4-6 celery stalks

1. Bake bones for 1 hour at 350°.
1. Pour 1 gallon of filtered water into crock pot
2. Add in all ingredients.

Place all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low for 24 – 72 hours. Strain and pour into glass jars that can be frozen. Keeps in fridge for 5+ days, so put some there and freeze the rest.

To create a particularly great tasting stock and a scrumptious beef dish, add an inexpensive grass fed beef cut and let it cook for 5 or 6 hours and then remove and enjoy, or use for soups, stews, barbeque, etc. You can do the same thing with chicken breasts but you have to be more careful with the broth afterwards and keep it frozen until you use it. This is a great way to get CLA into your chicken dishes and it really tastes like pulled pork when you take it out.

Nutritional Information for 1 Cup: 209 calories, 10 g fat, 22 g protein, 6 g carbs, 2 g fiber.

So, how do I incorporate bone broth into my diet? Look at all of these amazing dishes I’ve enjoyed this past week!

cooking with bone broth

1. Fish with Spinach
2. Beef with Green Beans and Mushrooms
3. Chicken with Green Beans
4. Bison Burger with Mushroom and Gouda

All these dishes were simple yet delicious! I lightly brown the meat/fish/mushrooms in coconut oil and season with organic garlic salt, organic garlic pepper, and bourbon smoked paprika; if I am prepping meat for a salad, I sometimes add fresh italian herbs. Next, I add in some bone broth and simmer. Later I add my veggies, I love spinach with the fish, and green beans with the chicken and mushroom soup. It adds incredible flavor as well as lots of really good CLA. Before serving, I season it with a bit of Himalayan Sea Salt.
If you are unable to make your own bone broth, there is an alternative! You can have delicious bone broth shipped right to your home from Chef Lance Roll! Be sure to check out our podcast interview with Lance!

Clean Eating Recipe: Baby Back Pork Ribs

clean eating baby back ribs

Okay! My family voted my baby back spareribs the most delicious they have ever tasted. No kidding! If you haven’t had this sort of success there are a few things you might want to try.

First, did you know that there is a membrane on the back of your baby back pork ribs? There is! You have to remove it if you want really juicy tender ribs! To remove the membrane, separate it at the short end and then grab it with a paper towel. It usually pulls right off!

eating disorder recovery recipes

The other thing you have to do it marinate the ribs for at least three hours. You can also use this as a mopping sauce as well if you are doing your reds on a grill! The marinade is simple:

Baby Back Port Ribs Marinade

1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar (the benefits of coconut palm sugar)
1/2 cup Worcester sauce
1 tsp garlic pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp bourbon smoked paprika
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp chili powder

After they have marinated for 3 to 4 hours you can bake them covered loosely with aluminum foil for about an hour at 350 degrees. Either make your own barbecue sauce or use your favorite barbecue sauce. Wrap them in heavy duty aluminum foil two hours before dinner. Cook them in the oven over very low heat or place them in a smoker on the grill on low heat. Remove them from the aluminum foil. Baste with your favorite barbecue sauce until they just turn dark; or stick them under the broiler for half an hour.

Enjoy the most mouthwatering, tender ribs you have ever tasted!

To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.”

If you want a meal in 8 minutes that is mouth watering and really good for you, all you need is a chicken breast (Organic and free range), organic frozen green beans, some coconut fat and the right spices! Just look at that au jus and the fat glistening off of the beans. Yum!

1 heaping tbsp + 1 tsp extra virgin, unrefined coconut fat
1 organic, free-range chicken breast
Bourbon Barrel Bourbon-Smoked Paprika
garlic salt
garlic pepper
himalayan salt or sea salt
any other MSG-free seasonings that you love

1. In a cast iron (or stainless steel) frying pan, heat up coconut fat.
2. Wash and dry the chicken breast and place it in the hot coconut fat.
3. Coat both sides of the chicken breast with the fat.
4. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with Bourbon Smoked Paprika, Garlic Salt, Garlic Pepper, Himalayan Salt or Sea Salt and any other seasonings that you love.
5. Brown on both sides and reduce heat. Put lid on pan.
DO NOT OVERCOOK THE CHICKEN – It only needs 7 or 8 minutes and just barely done to be the most mouthwatering
6. While the chicken is finishing: Microwave for 3 minutes organic frozen green beans.
7. Drain the beans and salt them and put a teaspoon of coconut fat on them and microwave them for 30 more seconds.
8. You can either throw the green beans into the frying pan to coat them with the delicious juices from the fried chicken or leave them in a ceramic bowl and throw the chicken and the juice on top of them like I did.

It is the smoked paprika that makes this dish so delicious!

Health Benefits of Chick Peas + A Recipe for Mediterranean “Rice” Salad

“In my experience, clients that are in treatment for eating disorders such as bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.”

This dish is great served hot, but also makes a fabulous cold salad. Garlic, zucchini, red onion, chick peas, goat cheese and oregano make a really satisfying dish.

Chickpeas are a great source of protein. They also contain folic acid, iron, copper, zinc and magnesium.

I used cauliflower rice, instead of white rice to cut back on the carbohydrates. This recipe can be made with quinoa, rice or orzo, if you prefer. I grated a medium head of cauliflower in my food processor with the grater attachment. This can also be done with a regular grater. Microwave it in a covered dish for six minutes, no need to add any water.

Based on a recipe by Rachael Ray, this is a quick + easy weeknight dinner. I served this with shrimp cocktail. My favorite shrimp and cocktail sauce are both Trader Joe’s brand. Absolutely delicious!

Mediterranean “Rice” Salad

4 cups organic cauliflower rice

1 medium organic zucchini, diced

salt + pepper

1/2 cup organic red onion, chopped

3 cloves thinly sliced organic garlic

1 can of organic chickpeas (15 oz)

1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped

1/4 cup fresh oregano

3 oz organic goat cheese cheese, crumbled

In a medium skillet, saute zucchini, onion, garlic, salt and pepper in coconut oil. Cook til tender (about 6 minutes).

Add chickpeas, cook til warm.

Next, add cauliflower rice, parsley, oregano and crumbled goat cheese. Gently stir to combine.

Prior to serving, top with additional goat cheese, if desired.

Makes 4 servings.

Enjoy!

The Morning Rush + A Make-Ahead Breakfast Recipe

The Morning Rush to Work

“In my experience, clients that are in treatment for eating disorders such as bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.”

Many of my patients experience a lot of stress first thing in the morning. Getting ready for work or school, making breakfast, getting kids ready to go to daycare, facing rush hour traffic can all inflict stress on even the most healthy individual. In order to ease the stress of my patients, I have discovered a breakfast recipe for Overnight Oats that is nutritious, delicious and convenient.

Overnight Oats provide a delicious blast of protein in the morning. You can make a few days worth in advance, put them in individual serving size containers, and grab it as you head out the door in the morning. I have created a few variations on this recipe that you can rotate between, just to switch things up a bit. This is definitely not your granny’s hot bowl of oatmeal! No cooking involved on this one, it’s eaten chilled.

This recipe contains two types of protein; casein (from the cottage cheese) and whey (from greek yogurt). Whey protein is a naturally complete protein; it contains all essential amino acids. It is easy to digest, our bodies absorb it quickly. Our bodies absorb casein protein more slowly, so the amino acids in the protein are released into the bloodstream at a more steady pace.

Overnight Oats

1 cup organic old-fashioned oats (not instant oats, minute oats, or flavored oatmeal)

2 cups grassfed cottage cheese (my favorite is Kalona Supernatural)

12 oz plain grassfed greek yogurt

2 tbsp Coconut Crystals (more if you like it sweeter)

cinnamon (to taste, I like lots)

Combine everything in a medium sized bowl and mix away! Store in the fridge overnight, and you will wake up to a delish breakfast.

Makes 4 servings

Approximately (depending on which brands of ingredients used) – 235 cal, 6 g fat, 24 g protein, 20 g carbs

Variations:

-add 4 tablespoons of coconut flour and organic dark chocolate chips or organic raisins for Overnight Oats that taste like cookie dough

-top with cashew nut butter, raw honey or coconut nectar

-put a layer of frozen fruit in the bottom of each portion, or a layer of nuts on top (walnuts are best because they have such a high orac -oxidative radical absorption capacity- value)

Three Minute Brownie

“In my experience, clients that are in treatment for eating disorders such as bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.”

A treat that some of my patients enjoy regularly, a quick and easy brownie. Prepared in less than three minutes, it’s a dream come true during times of choco-emergency. This really satisfies a chocolate craving without any guilt. Not to mention, each brownie has 15 grams of protein!

 

 

This recipe was inspired by SmoothieGirlEatsToo. Definitely check out her blog for some delicious recipes!

I have recently discovered a line of products called Coconut Secret. In the past, we have used stevia to sweeten these brownies, but we have switched to using raw coconut crystals. It’s a completely natural sweetener that contains 17 amino acids. It’s also low glycemic and non-GMO.

This brownie is great just on it’s own, but is also great with peanut or almond butter, greek yogurt, or TruWhip….the possibilities are endless!

Three Minute Brownie

2 tablespoons peanut flour

1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder (leave this out if you want a pumpkin spice muffin)

1-2 teaspoons raw coconut crystals

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

4 tablespoons canned organic 100% pumpkin

3 tablespoons organic, pastured egg whites

cinnamon

a few drops if vanilla

Combine all the ingredients and mix til combined.

Grease a small ramekin, pour the brownie batter mixture.

Cook for 2 minutes in the microwave (might need longer depending on your microwave).
