Inline_Food_Nutrition_Live-Awesome-645x445-01Good morning, everybody. It’s hard to believe we’re almost two weeks into the new year. For those who are working with new intentions, how are you all doing?

The team and I have loved your questions and suggestions the last two weeks. As you can imagine, it’s a lot to comb through, but my staff is busy cataloging these for future articles and resources we’ll offer on the site. In the meantime, we thought we’d offer some round-up posts highlighting past articles that may address some of your current questions.

On tap for today: kitchen tips. Enjoy, everyone.

  1. All good tips and worth knowing. One of my favorites is, Clean as you go. It keeps the mess and clutter to a minimum and there’s much less to deal with later, when you’d rather just be done in the kitchen.

    For people who are trying to eat more veggies but don’t really like them, roasting is the way to go. It’s easily done in the oven and the flavor is way better than boiled or steamed.

    Shrimp can also be roasted. Spread them out on a baking sheet, sprinkle with a little EVOO or avocado oil and lightly season them, then bake at 400 degrees for 5 or 6 minutes. Watch carefully and remove them from the oven when they’ve turned pink.

    Frozen smoked pork hocks/shanks can be added to the Instant Pot for deliciously flavorful soup–which, incidentally, makes a great breakfast in the wintertime. Just add your choice of veggies and water, and press the “Soup” setting. Salt may not be needed. It takes about 45 minutes to cook the frozen hocks. We use them for split pea or bean soup quite often. Very little prep required.

    Pressure cooker tip: If you let the pressure come down naturally on the Instant Pot, you’ll be able to fill it a lot fuller than if you use the pressure release valve. However, do pay attention to the “Max” level shown on the inside of the pot so as not to overfill.

  2. Tip for making bulletproof coffee WildGrok style:

    1. In a cup add these ingredients
    – 1 tablespoon of cream cheese
    – 2 tablespoons of home made ghee or butter
    – 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
    – Some salt

    Now come the secret (until today) ingredients
    – one teaspoonful of almond butter (it works also with peanut butter, the good one with no additives)
    – 2 tablespoons of … molasses !!!

    Put in the microwave for 20 seconds
    Stir well, add the coffee
    Blend
    Enjoy

    Note: it may not be keto-correct, but with this as breakfast you can easily be two days without any other food 🙂

  3. Fantastic! Just the inspiration I needed to keep at it and keeping cooking yummy, healthy foods for my family. Thank you.
