 Cook Applegate Bacon in a medium size pan. (Applegate bacon in Antibiotic and hormone free. It is pastured and  grass-fed.)

Sautee Brussel Sprouts in Bacon grease. (Because you are using a HIGH quality bacon it is ok to cook with the grease. More on this in a post to come!!!)

Place brussel sprouts to the side and use the same pan to cook your  eggs the way you like!

Once Eggs are cooked lay them on top of the brussel sprouts and enjoy this savory dish.

 Crush 1/4 cup of raw Cashews

Crush 1/4 cup of raw coconut

Coconut Aminos

Coconut oil

chopped Cauliflower

frozen Broccoli

olive oil

1 cup pineapple

marinate the tuna steaks in Coconut Aminos (similar to Soy sauce, without the MSG and Soy, Soy acts as a phyto-estrogen and can mess with your hormone levels.)

Press the cashew and coconuts onto the marinated tuna steaks.  Place the Tuna Steak in the pan with coconut oil  on medium-high. Cover the pan.

Turn over the Tuna steak once it is seared to your desire. ( you do not want to over cook your tuna!)

Once Tuna is finished cooking  remove it and sauté the Pineapple and cauliflower. If you need more coconut oil add a smidgin. Once Cauliflower is soft dinner is complete!

Eating the right foods! and SLOW Down.

Alydia Bryant

Its amazing how making wise food choices really helps you feel so much better! Our society tends to forget that food is our fuel! Yes, God gave us a lot of variety to chose from but ultimately it is what keeps us energized and keeps us going. Lets talk about cars for a second. I am no car expert but I do know that you would never want to put the regular graded gas in a diesel engine, or a nice BMW/LEXUS/Ferrari/ etc. It would do horrible things to the engine. It wouldn't run properly and it could also potentially cause damage. You also wouldn't want to over flow a gas tank when filling up a car because gas is expensive! We don't want to waste things, do we? By over filling a gas tank you run into the possibility of damaging the fuel gauge and it could become inaccurate. Or the biggest problem is that it can wreck the evap system. This collects gasoline fumes from the tank and routes them to the engine for combustion.

 

HMMMM does this sound familiar at all??? Many of us Americans don't only choose poor food choices but we also over eat! When we over eat we no longer can "trust" our instincts or hunger pangs. They become in accurate. One of the biggest lessons I am learning is the importances of not rushing meals. I have always been a fast eater. Since Mitchell's and I's first date over 6 years ago I have always finished eating before him. Why----because I INHALE my food. When we eat fast, we run into the possibility of not fully chewing our food which is a major part of our digestion process or we eat to much and there for our body does not have the time to tell us we are full. If we slow down chances are we will not only enjoy our food and experiences more but we will also be able to get a better "notification" of being full! We should stop eating when we are 80% full and not STUFFED!
