Two crazy easy meals oh, and a deal (so read the end, too)

Sometimes I have people ask what we eat for meals. So, today for lunch Tate had last night’s leftovers which consisted of grass-fed ground beef, cumin, some celtic salt and a jar of salsa. I also used organic blue corn taco shells because blue corn is less likely to trigger allergies (with kids) than regular yellow corn and it’s organic, to ensure that it’s not GMO. Easy enough!

Oh my goodness that big open smile. Did I ever tell y’all the story of how my (at the time ) newly 4-year-old got (or forced) a “loose tooth”, just like his sister and cousin. Oh Tater…

For dinner tonight, we used our Costco organic chicken that I cut up, and added these flavors to it:

Here is the list of what you will need for your Lime Coconut Chicken:

  • 1.5-2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp tamari gluten free soy sauce
  • 2 tsp celtic salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar (or honey)
  • 1 tsp curry powder (or 2 tsp, depending on preference)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (I used the light)
  • pinch cayenne
  • coconut oil for cooking
  • fresh cilantro, chopped for garnish

Cut up your chicken, add everything listed above except for the cilantro, and let marinate in a zip lock bag for at least a few hours in the refrigerator.

I let mine sit all day but then came home in between kids sporting activities (so for 20 minutes) and quickly cooked this on my cast iron skillet with some coconut oil. I put about 1-2 tbsp of oil in the hot pan, then added the chicken. Once the chicken was well seared and mostly cooked, I then poured in the rest of the sauce to heat it up for a couple of minutes.

Everyone ate it and no one complained, which is always a win in my book…

  • Leslie - I am so bummed. I would love to come to visit you on Wednesday…however, I will be out of town;(
    I live right down the street from Dr. Taz’s office and I am very curious about her practice. I have 3 kids. One of which has been recently diagnosed with processing disorder, dyslexia and possible ADHD. I am seeking alternatives to his diet. My 3rd son is 1 and cries non-stop..I am starting to think something is up with him too.

    I am intuitively wondering about all of our diets. I don’t know where to begin…do we all get tested to see what food intolereances we might have? If so, what are they and where do we go?

    I have read about ALCAT and IgG and IgE…I am so confused!

    If you have any wisdom that would be helpful, please!!! I am really seeking right now.
    Love your have beautiful pictures and we eat a lot of your recipes. Thank you!

    • landriav - Hey Leslie! Thanks for your note! Your gut is totally right, trust that. You all can get tested or work on a elimination diet but would love to meet with you, hear more about any possible issues and can offer suggestions as to how and where to start. Also, the 2nd session, Wed May 15th I’m doing is actually about allergies so will go into depth on many of the allergies kids have, symptoms/issues that go with etc. so that could be helpful to you as well. And then for the month of June, we are doing sessions all about kids and one will include bringing in the kids to let them sample some good snacks. ALCAT can be good, but chances are good you guys need to work on minimizing or eliminating gluten, lowering sugar, and also looking at dairy. So the test may tell you what you already know, maybe? Thanks for reaching out Leslie! Let me know if you want to meet. I think I can help!ReplyCancel

  • Leslie - Thanks so much! I will follow up with you when I get back in town!
