A couple of photos and video of the finished product!
The picture on the right is our meat, red cabbage and what looks like "rice" is cauliflower which we whirled up in the Cuisinart and added some cumin. It has the consistency of rice and tastes like rice! It was wonderful! For all of you who can not eat pasta try this tonight. Everyone in the family loved it!
This week in the kitchen is an education on meat, poultry and fish. Tuesday evening we started with meat and Chef Curtis had my son Branden get involved with the cooking. They both did a wonderful job and I'll be posting additional videos of the finished product.
Things to consider about meat:
1. The leaner the meat = more protein
2. Organic meat vs. GMO meat. How is your cow being fed, and what is it being fed. Things to consider.
3. Depending on your digestive system meat can take 3-6 months to run thru your digestive system. Wow!
4. You should only eat 3-4 oz of meat at a time. There go those 12 -24 oz. steaks on the menu!
For tonight's dish we had a very lean , organic piece of meat. To prepare for the pan Branden did the following:
1. score meat ( lets the marinade get into the meat )
2. add marinade ( remember those herb marinades we made and have in the fridge? take one an slather it on the meat )
3. add additional seasonings , herbs and sea salt
4. heat your oil in pan
5. add some crushed garlic to hot oil ( to infuse the garlic in oil )
6. add meat. ( cook five minutes on each side )
7. add onion and beef broth
8. put in oven to finish cooking and cook down.
End result on next video~

I Can Do It
By, Louise L. Hay
In that big bottomless box , remember that big box of goodies at the beginning of my posts? Well there are even more books!
This week I read the book I Can Do It!
I strongly recommend this book for anyone. What an easy read. Louise has a very sharp way of writing very beautiful and is yet straight forward in getting her point across not to mention the book is very beautifully illustrated.
The book is all about affirmations.
An affirmation opens the door and is the starting point on a journey to change.
How many of you practice affirmations?
One key message I heard in the book that it's important to always say your affirmations in the present tense and without contractions.
I am vs. I'm.
Some wonderful examples from the book
I hate my body becomes I love and appreciate my body.
I never have enough money becomes Money flows into my life in an abundant way.
Remember "I have" and "I am ".
The book also comes with a CD which you can listen to while you do your daily commute. It's recommended to listen to the audio book for thirty days.
Take time this weekend and read something to enrich your life!
