Summer Aids

DSC05234We haven’t tried these yet, but they seem like a good place to start:

I always recommend taking astaxanthin to prevent sunburn, but here are some homemade sunscreen recipes: http://wellnessmama.com/2558/natural-homemade-sunscreen-recipe/

Banana Heaven AKA One Eye’d Jacks

DSC04651This is an amazing little recipe. So so simple. So fast. So delish. We call them Banana Heaven, or One Eye’d Jacks, as in flapjacks. They are SO much like banana pancakes, but better.

Put into vitamix:

1 banana
1 egg
dash vanilla
3 shakes salt
3 shakes cinnamon

Blend till smooth. Pour into small (2-3 inch diameter) pancakes on medium hot cast iron well slathered with coconut oil. Add 1 large blueberry into the middle of each pancake. Wait till the edges start to brown and they are full of bubbles. They look a LOT like pancakes but they’re a bit harder to flip. No worries if they don’t flip perfectly though, as there’s no dry dough on the inside to choke on later. Cook them till they’re browned on both sides (a little dark doesn’t hurt either). Pop them on a plate. They are HOT but we barely get them to the table and never have time to search for utensils. Fingers grab ’em as is and Down the Hatch!

Quick Steak Marinade

What to do with a quarter cow?  Start here, with a fast yummy flank steak marinade:

  • 1 grass-fed flank steak
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Juice of one lemon

Soak meat in mariade for 1 hour or more.  Good idea to take out of fridge 30 minutes before cooking.  Put frying pan on medium high and sear both sides.  Lower heat to medium and cook but not too much (about 6 minutes/side).

Slice thin strips against the grain. Yummy!

Eating Meat

What happened when a confirmed vegan switched to a meat full diet? Read: Eat Meat & Fat!

I would just add that it is CRITICAL where you get your meat. Factory-farmed, pesticide-laden, hormone-injected meat, which is nearly the ONLY thing you’ll find in any restaurant, and what you get when you don’t go way out of your way to find good meat, shouldn’t even be called meat. It can cause immediate illness in sensitive people, for good reason. Those who notice no immediate reaction may well have longer term ill effects.
