Chicken "Tacos"

Brittany Carlson

I made these crunchy and hearty wraps with one of my younger clients that I'm trying to transition away from breads and grains. He loved these and so did his entire family. They are quick and simple to make, clean and full of lean protein and fiber. The coconut oil adds a sweet touch but if you prefer more of a buttery taste, I recommend using ghee. 

Ingredients

  • 3-4 tBSP coconut oil (for SAUTEEING chicken and veggies)

  • 1 lb ground chicken

  • 1 Yellow Onion, finely diced

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/2-1 tbsP ginger, MINCED

  • 1 large carrot, finely diced

  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce

  • 2 scallions

  • sea salt

  • 1 head of bibb or butter lettuce
     

Method

  1. Heat coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat.

  2. Add chicken to pan with pinch of salt and pepper. Break up the chicken so it gets cooked through completely-- about 10 minutes or so-- Start sauteing your veggies while the chicken cooks. 

  3. In a separate skillet, heat coconut oil over medium heat and add onion, ginger and garlic.  Saute for about 5 to 8 minutes until the onion becomes translucent. Add carrot and cook for about 5-8 minutes. stir often.  

  4. Add your veggie saute to the ground chicken pan.

  5. Mix in maple syrup and hot sauce and extra salt to taste. Cook for another couple minutes.

  6. Wash your butter lettuce leaves (I wash however many I plan to use and wash them individually so they don't tear. dry with a paper towel.). scoop chicken mixture into the leaves.

  7. Eat these guys like a taco and enjoy your healthy meal!

  • Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Add broccoli and saute for about 5 minutes.

  • Once water has boiled, decrease heat to low-medium, and cover your pot. Cook for about 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender (Vitamix is my preference) and puree.

 This recipe makes about 4 bowls of soup. 

 

Ginger-Miso Baked Brussel Sprouts

Brittany Carlson

Sulfur rich veggies haven't really been outed yet. We hear a lot about antioxidant-rich vegetables like dark leafy greens but not so much about the sulfur veggies. Recently, however, these vegetables have been gaining momentum, stemming from Dr. Terry Wahls, the well-known author of theWahls Protocol. Dr. Wahls advises her patients suffering from multiple sclerosis to consume at least three cups of sulfur rich veggies a day. Sulfur should be on everyone's radar though as it is absolutely essential to your health. The more you get, the better.

So what is sulfur? 
Sulfur is a compound found in the human body as well as in certain foods, which is crucial to your body's health and physiology.

What does sulfur do for your body? 
* Supports your body’s ability to detoxify unwanted toxins and chemicals. 
* Helps break down protein to produce collagen, which is important for maintaining your skin and joints. Many people that suffer from arthritis take a sulfur supplement to calm joint pain. Collagen also builds healthy and beautiful skin, hair and nails. 
* Keeps your blood vessels elastic, which is essential for blood to reach the heart and the brain. This helps fight cardiovascular disease and protects the central nervous system. 
* Assists in the production of glutathione, which is considered one of the bodies most powerful antioxidants and is crucial for longevity. A poor diet and environmental toxins reduce glutathione production in the body.

Which vegetables contain sulfur? 
The Cabbage, Onion and Mushroom families are all rich in the sulfur compound. Here are some specific sulfur rich veggies to be sure to add into your daily diet. Focus on eating a variety of these vegetables as they all have different health benefits.

Asparagus
Onions
Leeks
Scallions
Garlic
Cabbage
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Brussels sprouts, and check out the recipe below! 
Bok choy
Mushrooms
Turnips
Radish
Rutabaga

Recommendation: Eat at least 1-2 cup of sulfur rich vegetables a day, ideally three!

Skillet Eggs

Brittany Carlson

I loved eating this warming and nutritous dish for any meal of the day. It is the perfect meal to whip up for brunch at home with friends or post work out meal. This dish is also super easy to make and only calls for 5 main ingredients. Goes well with a green salad! 

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large onion, small dice

  • 4 large garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

  • 1 teaspoon seal salt

  • 2 cans of organic diced tomatoes

  • 5 organic eggs

Method

  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over low to medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until slightly golden. Add the chopped onion and sauté until golden. Add salt.

  • Lower the heat to medium-low and add the tomatoes. Cover with lid and cook on medium heat until the mixture has thickened slightly, about 15 minutes.

  • Crack the eggs over the mixture. You can move the egg white around but don’t break the yolk. Cover and cook until the whites set, but the yolks are still soft.

  • Divide the eggs and ragout and eat with salad or quinoa

This is the perfect combination of warm and savory flavors over crunchy lettuce. The warm chicken and its juice help breakdown the kale for a less bitter taste.

1. Put ghee in slowcooker. Set your slow cooker on high until the ghee melts.

2.  While ghee is melting, clean and rinse the whole chicken and pat dry.

3. Coat chicken liberally with salt, pepper and italian spices.

4. Once ghee has meleted, put half of the lemon slices and two of the garlic halfs on the bottom of the pan. Place chicken on top.

5. Fill chicken cavitiy with half of a head of garlic. Please remaining lemon slices flat on chicken. 

6. Set slowcooker on low for 12 hours. It will fall right off the bone. Yum!
