If you think kefir is only a refreshingly tart yogurt drink brimming with healthy probiotics, then you’re missing out on another reason it’s great to have kefir in the kitchen.
Kefir is a fantastic marinade for chicken. The acidic nature of kefir makes it the perfect tenderizer, especially for chicken breasts. Kefir also has a way of really soaking the flavors of a marinade into meat. This recipe uses lemon and dill, but any blend of herbs or spices can be whisked into a kefir marinade.
This recipe is a good reason to grab that bottle of turmeric in your spice rack and put it to work adding bright orange color and extra flavor to mild fish like cod. The slightly bitter taste of turmeric all but disappears when cooked with buttery ghee, ginger and garlic.
The shake of black pepper in the ingredient list is there for more than just seasoning; black pepper provides piperine, which is essential for absorbing curcumin. Curcumin is the whole reason to be eating turmeric in the first place, since it’s the part of turmeric that carries all the amazing health benefits.Read More
The only seasoning you need for this main course salad is Primal Kitchen® Italian Vinaigrette and Marinade. Citrus and red wine vinegar, plus thyme, basil and oregano, infuse Italian flavor into roasted vegetables and steak. Use the vinaigrette to toss the steak and roasted veg into a green salad, and the meal is done.
Italian vinaigrette makes a great marinade for meat, tenderizing with vinegar and lemon, and adding flavor with dried herbs and seasonings. Oil in the vinaigrette keeps meat moist and succulent, but all too often it’s industrial seed oil that you don’t want touching your grass-fed steak. That’s where Primal Kitchen® vinaigrettes are different. Primal Kitchen Italian Vinaigrette and Marinade is made with pure avocado oil and high in monounsaturated fats. Healthful and convenient, this vinaigrette makes it easy to eat right and eat well.
This meal comes together in three easy parts. One, toss the broccoli in the oven and roast it. Two, whisk together an amazing sesame-peanut sauce. Three, quickly stir-fry sliced steak and then toss everything together in a bowl. Yum.
The sweet and salty sesame-peanut sauce is what makes this a favorite beef and broccoli recipe. The sauce is addictively good—and versatile. Drizzle it over beef, chicken and salmon, or over grilled and roasted vegetables, sautéed greens, and rice or cauliflower rice. The peanut sauce can be thinned out with coconut milk to create a creamy salad dressing, and if you like spicy, go ahead and add a pinch of red pepper flakes.Read More

It’s easy to forget that a pot of steamed clams (or mussels) makes a perfect weeknight dinner. It’s one of the easiest seafood meals to cook, and also one of the healthiest. Shellfish cook in 5 minutes flat once they’re in a pot of simmering liquid. That’s a quick meal, even on the busiest of weeknights. Shellfish even tell you when they’re done, by opening their shells and revealing plump meat inside. That morsel of meat is a uniquely dense source of nutrition.Read More
