This is a warm fall-winter salad that is a perfect pairing for a piece of grilled fish or chicken. It's a light, tasty and perfectly sanctioned side dish that is made more substantial and rich with the addition of turkey bacon. You can use regular smoked bacon, canadian bacon or prosciutto ~ whatever meat you personally prefer.
Spicy Chicken Soup -- this is one of the very reasons to have a well stocked pantry and freezer. When you are in a hurry with little time to spare this body warming soup is so easy and quick to make. It is perfect for a busy week night during the fall and winter months.
By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC Almond Meal makes a tasty gluten free crust and an excellent pastry for a change of pace. Add in your favorite vegetables, some egg or egg-whites a little cheese if you prefer and bake! When it comes out of the oven, let it rest for a bit and then enjoy with a side salad for an elegant brunch option or easy lunch.
This Living Fit Lifestyle version of Chicken Marsala is made without using the flour ~ since I am gluten free and the flour would not be good for me, I omit it completely. I thicken the gravy by using my VitaMix blender to puree some of the onion which gives the sauce a little body.
If you love the warming spice of curry and a slightly sweet taste of stewed apples and cinnamon, you will love this dish as much as I do. I serve it with roasted cauliflower to keep this dish fully sanctioned and Paleo perfect! If you prefer to add some starch to your meal plan, you can add brown rice and the meal will be more substantial.
Ummm Mushrooms! This is a classic mushroom preparation that we learned in school and as you might have guessed ~ I don't really do it the way we learned in culinary school, it's a little time consuming for me and the quick version that I go to gives me all the flavor with out all the fuss.
What I love about meatloaf is you can use any kind of meat you like or even make it a veggie loaf if you don't eat meat.... the concept is the same. It's incredibly easy, gather your ingredients, mix them in a large bowl, put them together in a loaf pan and bake. In an hour, you have a very healthy, comforting dinner ready for a family.
An Italian staple -- Bolognese Sauce. My mom grew up in New Orleans with an Italian mother (my grandmother) she was exposed to classic Italian cooking and the creole cuisine from New Orleans. Then we moved to Texas when I was a child which added another element to the mix -- Tex Mex. So, you might imagine, nothing that I cook is very 'traditional' in the classic sense. I tend to mix up an old favorite with the flavors that I remember blended in, and this is just that -- my version of Bolognese.
Chef Barbara created this Curried Chicken Salad recipe. She and I went to culinary school together a few years ago at The French Culinary Institute in New York City. We had lots of fun, long nights and hard work getting our feet wet at school and working in the school restaurant L’Ecole .
