Good Wednesday to you! (Technically, it’ll be Thursday before you all get this but for us swingers…I mean, swing shifters…he he.) My email did not blow up with first week success stories of 55 pounds lost and 30 years regained. But I am going to assume that you are all seeing some change in the positive direction. Remember, let’s get the small steps taken care of (learning how and what to eat), make sure we take the fast steps (sprint once a week), and rest assured (8 hours a night!) that your healthy lifestyle will take you far beyond your expectations.
It’s another recipe Wednesday. Here is an extremely tasty, albeit awesomely easy recipe that was posted on The Nourished Kitchen, courtesy of the Well-fed Homestead. It’s so easy you’ll wonder why you haven’t made it at least once a week for the last twenty years. Okay, it’s probably the bacon that will have you thinking that but really, check this out – you’ll love it. For breakfast leftovers too!
§ 1 pound bacon, chopped
§ 1/4 cup butter or ghee (buy it here), optional
§ 2 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, chopped
§ 4 cloves garlic, minced
§ 1 small onion, chopped
§ 24 ounces frozen green beans
§ 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, cook bacon and set aside on paper towels.
2. Cook chicken in remaining bacon grease. Add butter or ghee to the pan if there is not enough grease. Add garlic and onions and reduce heat to medium, stirring until the garlic and onions are tender. Add in green beans, and cooked bacon, cover and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir in cheese and coconut milk until mixed well.
YIELD: 4 to 6 servings | TIME: 10 to 15 minutes (active), 25 to 30 minutes (stovetop)
That’s it from me today. Enjoy the meal! If you have any questions please let me know. Remember, regaining your health is super easy, yet super important. Becoming a modern-day hunter-gatherer takes some effort. Take some time this week to pick out meals to make next week, put together a shopping list, and go to Market. Enjoy the process! It’s a wonderful journey.
Did you take those pictures yet? Next week we talk about goal setting and rewards!
To being Well-Fed. On the homestead.
P.S. One of the reasons this post is going out so late is because many popular sites like The Nourished Kitchen and Everyday Paleo were on a 12/24 hour blackout to show support of rejecting the SOPA and PIPA bills. Be involved.
