Beef 4 results

People get caught up in the health craze and often decide that not eating beef is a good idea. However, moderation is the key. It provides a good source of niacin, vitamin B6, iron and riboflavin. All of these nutrients play a vital role in the body.  Protein helps build bones, muscles, cartilage and skin.  And not only that, it tastes great!

I like to use organic grass fed beef.  If you haven’t had grass fed, it does have a different taste than you may be accustomed to.  For any of my beef recipes you can use regular or grass fed. Because I focus on healthy recipes, I do suggest using very lean meat unless the recipe calls for something different.

If you love beef, one thing to consider is buying part of a cow or going in on a purchase with your family and friends from a reputable source.  I usually buy 1/4 cow once a year. It’s nice to have all of that fresh grass fed beef on hand.

Even Better Than Granny’s Meatloaf (And Better For You!)

Recently I decided to rework my grandmother's meatloaf recipe into a healthier version - thus the title, "Even Better Than Granny's Meatloaf (And Better For You)." It's a bit on the spicy side but not too spicy. If you don't like spice you can leave out the Chipotle seasoning or use less if you want. My kids think it's the best meatloaf ever! Of course they are a bit prejudiced. The original recipe appeared in my cookbook, Amy's Favorites (from my non Weight Watcher days in 2010) under the ...

Pineapple Skillet Fajitas

Pineapple Skillet Fajitas were inspired by one of the members, (Small Girl, Strong Why) who is on the Fatdag Blog team where I post as a guest blogger. I am proud to be a member of their non-profit team-Operation Fatdag.  My friend recently visited Manola a restaurant in Mississippi, and snapped a picture of her meal-Pineapple Fajitas and sent it to me. It sounded so intriguing that I decided to try my hand at creating it. Not sure if my version measures up to theirs (since I've never tasted ...
