Lately, I’ve been eating a few too many dark chocolate almonds or Whole Foods dark chocolate chips or apples with magic shell…okay you get the point. And, it’s starting to catch up with me. Last night I had a fever for the first time in literally years. My husband was planning carpool schedules for the next morning, which he took to both schools (thanks Scott!). But that night, I told him, pretty over confidently, that I would be completely fine in the morning. I drank lots of water all day with lemon and then my apple cider vinegar and baking soda concoction. I knew my immune system was lowered a little from the chocolate because one, that is what sugar does and two, chocolate is very acidic. Anyway, I woke up this am, had a slight headache, but went ahead with my workout and ended up feeling completely well, and now feel great. I wouldn’t have guessed that I would feel so well now after having full on chills/sweats the night before. YAY for getting alkaline again!! Watch…now that I’m bragging, I’m totally going to get sick!
Anyway, I had a bunch of grass fed ground sirloin around and wasn’t sure exactly what to do with it so came up with a sort of Asian Ground Beef Broccoli Slaw. The kids really liked it and so did my hubby.
This is what you need:
- 2 lb ground beef (I wanted to have leftovers, as always)
- 1 bag of broccoli slaw
- 1 onion (I used TJ’s onion, shallot, garlic pack as usual)
- 3-4 garlic cloves (if you didn’t use the TJ’s pack)
- 1 pack mushrooms
- handful of spinach
- 1 tbsp Coconut oil
- 3-4 tbsp organic tamari gluten free soy or coconut aminos
- 2 tbsp sherry (if you don’t use coconut aminos)
- 1 tsp celtic salt
- dash of pepper
This was super easy to make since I didn’t have to chop up any vegetables. I did use my ulu on the mushrooms while they were in the colander to slice up my pre-cut mushrooms just a bit more.
Cooking this is all about order and what takes the longest to cook. Start with a large cooking pan and add your coconut oil. Heat on high, then add in your mushrooms. After about 4-5 minutes, add in onions, then broccoli slaw. Mix together well while it’s cooking and then set aside after a few minutes. In another large pan cook your meat until brown. Now mix it all together in one of your pans, and add your spinach, salt, pepper, Tamari or coconut aminos, and sherry. Let cook for a few more minutes on low while the flavors soak then, and enjoy!
Clementines (or oranges) were really refreshing after this meal. We love our clementines this time of year!
By the way, thanks so much to everyone who e-mailed me their favorite smoothie recipes (feel free to use the “Comments” section too guys!). I am LOVING my new Vitamix and have been playing with it a lot. I hope to do a post on what I’ve learned about what ingredients are important to include (and why) as well as our favorite smoothies soon.
