Grated Sweet Potato Hash

This hash tastes like mac & cheese to me! Call me crazy, but it’s definitely the nutritional yeast’s doing. Nutritional yeast is a dried yeast with a slightly cheesy flavor. It’s FULL of B vitamins and minerals like iron + zinc + selenium. It’s an amazing and tasty addition to this hash {or sprinkled on other veggies}.

  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper + garlic powder

Add your ghee to a pan on a medium flame. Then add your grated sweet potato + seasonings and sautee for about 3 mins. Turn your oven broiler on low and pop the whole pan in for 3-5 mins! Then serve with any meal!

One-pan Fritatta

One of my favorite easy breakfasts! This is a staple for me in the morning as I’m running around getting ready for work or school! Sometimes I even take it with me for lunch on the go! You can use any veggies you have in the fridge for these and it’s awesome.

β€’ 3 eggs
β€’Β 1/2 zucchini
β€’ 4-5 button mushrooms
β€’ 1/4 cup chopped cherry tomatoes
β€’ 1 tbsp of coconut oil
β€’ 1/4 tsp salt
β€’ 1/8 tsp pepper

Whisk 3 eggs in a bowl while melting your coconut oil in a pan. Add your zucchiniΒ & mushrooms to the pan & season with your salt + pepper, cooking for about 2-3 minutes until slightly soft. Pour eggs over the veggies and cover the pan with a lid for about 1 minute. Add your chopped cherry tomatoes on top.
Then put the pan in your oven on broil {on the low setting} for 3 minutes. Take out of the oven, slide on to your plate, top with more salt + pepper if your heart desires & eat up! I love to pair mine with avocado, sauerkraut, & fresh fruit.

Quick Ground Beef

I like to cook up a pound of ground grass fed beef in the beginning of the week and then base my meals around it {adding a starch + lots of veggies + fat}. It’s incredibly easy and delicious for meal prep!

12960138_220089478366725_667980740_n

  • 1lbs grass fed ground beef
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder + onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp oregano
  • 1/2 tbsp ghee

Add your ghee to a large pan on a medium flame. Add your beef and seasonings, then break up into small pieces. Cook for about 5-6 minutes until completely cooked through! Drain the beef of grease, then store in the fridge for meals to come!

Sauteed Cabbage

Cabbage is full of antioxidants, and one of my favorite vegetables! It’s AMAZING sauteed, and is the perfect veggies side for any protein!

SautΓ© in some ghee for about 8mins on a medium-high flame + season with salt & pepper for perfection!

Add some grass-fed beef to the pan & cook with the cabbage and you have a meal!

Crispy Skin Salmon

The crunch of crispy salmon skin is the best, and it’s actually quite easy to make!

12965806_1039502959458455_471391343_n

 

First, I defrosted my wild sockeye salmon fillets {Trader Joes! 2 fillets for $8} and patted them dry with paper towels. Then I took the edge of my knife and scraped the scales off the skin. You should see the little scales either fly off, or stick to your knife.

Once de-scaled, I sprinkled a bit of salt on the skin & let it sit for a few minutes. The salt will draw out water from the skin & set you up for the perfect crisp! Afterwards, pat dry with a paper towel and sprinkle the top of the filet with salt & pepper!

Meanwhile, heat some oil in a pan on a high flame. For this, I would not recommend olive oil or coconut oil. Choose an oil with a high smoke point like avocado or red palm oil so it doesn’t break down into harmful compounds!

Place the edge of your salmon fillet in the pan to check the oil temp. If it starts sizzling, it’s time to get cooking! Place your fillets skin-side down in the pan and cook for about 5-6 mins for the perfect crisp!

Flip the fish on to the other side for 30-45secs, just to give the top a little sear. Then flip back over and continue cooking for another minute or so. Remove from the heat and enjoy while hot! The skin will get soggy if you refrigerate!

Quick note! My salmon fillets were about 1inch thick! Cooking time might be a little longer or shorter depending on how thick your cut of fish is!

Rutabaga Puree

One day while roaming Whole Foods, I came across rutabaga! I hadn’t cooked with it before, and I bought some without the slightest idea about what to make! But I got in the kitchen, tackled the rutabaga, and the most delicious purΓ©e is the result.

12816815_1553274974970362_297285258_n

β€’ 1 large or 2 small rutabaga
β€’ 2 tbsp ghee
β€’ 2 heaping tbsp coconut cream {leave a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight and you’ll have coconut cream!}
β€’ 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
β€’ 1/2 tsp salt
β€’ a dash of nutmeg

Wash & roughly chop rutabaga, boiling it until soft {about 10-12 mins}. Then add rutabaga to a food processor while still hot. Add in ghee + seasonings + coconut cream & pulse until creamy! It should make a thick, mouth-watering purΓ©e! 😍 It’s the perfect side dish for roasted chicken or ground beef!
