I thought I could use some practice cooking steaks, and my husband didn’t argue with me wanting to practice. I bought several steaks and fell in love with this simple method of cooking this delicious red meat and potatoes.
My husband and I both loved this simple dish, and I’m sure you will too!
2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
1/4 Onion, separated into rings
Step 1) Heat pan on medium-high heat. Add coconut oil and cook steaks.
Step 2) When the steaks are almost done cooking, add onions into coconut oil and sauteé until finished.
Mashed Potatoes Ingredients:
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
Chives, as garnish
Step 1) Cut up potatoes into 1/4 inch pieces. The smaller the pieces, the faster the potatoes will cook.
Step 2) Put cut potatoes into large pan, and fill with enough water to cover the top of the potatoes. Boil for about 30 minutes, or until potatoes are fully cooked and soft.
Step 3) Drain Potatoes and beat until smooth.
Step 4) Add Coconut Oil and Sea Salt. Add to taste.
Step 5) Add freshly chopped chives on top as garnish.
Red meat, like anything else, should be eaten in moderation and cooked with healthy ingredients. The steaks I bought were really thick, so I cut them in half so they weren’t so thick, and then I cooked them in healthy ingredients like coconut oil.
When making the mashed potatoes, be sure to keep the skins on! The skin provides a lot of the nutrients, so peeling the skin off of the potatoes isn’t ideal.
Recipes don’t need to be complicated or have a million different ingredients to taste wonderful.
15 Red Potatoes
3 tablespoons Coconut Oil
Step 1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2) Cut potatoes into cubed pieces (see photo), and put into glass casserole dish.
Step 3) Place chunks of coconut oil throughout potatoes.
Step 4) Add garlic powder, sea salt, and rosemary to potatoes.
Step 5) Bake for 90 minutes (covered), or until potatoes are soft.
This is probably one of my favorite dishes. I am pretty sure I would rather have these potatoes than any “candy” out there. These are guilt-free, easy to make, and absolutely delicious!
These are comparable to the good ‘ol fashioned home-made version you might have been lucky enough to grow up with.
Not only is this the best frozen hashed browns I have ever had, and lucky for you and me, it is USDA Organic, fat free, gluten free, and fairly low in calories. Let’s just say, you don’t need to hesitate about buying these when looking for convenience and taste, and this is something that will go great with your chicken and apple sausages, eggs, and home made orange juice. Hey, I believe there is a way to not only eat healthy (or at least healthier than the average Joe), but also enjoy some great taste all at the same time.
This is pretty quick to make, just brown it on a frying pan or skillet. If you cook this with butter on the pan, just know you will be adding calories to this dish, so be careful with how much you add. A Great alternative to butter, is to use coconut oil, which is a safe oil when heated and cooking your foods.

Thanksgiving can either brake you or be quite beneficial for your body. It’s all about preparation. Here’s a couple of traditional foods that no Thanksgiving should be without.
Great news, Turkey is not only low in fat (ok, without the skin anyways), but it is also high in B Vitamins, Potassium, Zinc, and Folic acid. So what’s so great about all of that? These wonderful nutrients are helpful in lowering blood cholesterol, protect against heart disease, and cancer. What else does Turkey do to help? Turkey also aids the immune system, nerve function and growth, and help regulate blood pressure.
High in Vitamin C, B-Complex, Potassium, Magnesium, and Calcium. As a result, potatoes are helpful with relieving high blood pressure and rheumatism, and helps boost the immune system. If you are trying to lose weight though, limit the potato intake.
Full of antioxidants, Calcium and other healing properties. Research suggests that Cranberries can help with heart disease, helps to strengthen bones, can get rid of some types of stomach ulcers, heal urinary tract infections, and even helps as dental health. A lot of Cranberry products are loaded with sugar, so try to go the all natural route.
Yams are like a super veggie, with lots of vitamins and minerals that are very helpful to the body. Yams are a great source of Potassium, B Vitamins, Manganese, Fiber, Folic acid and healthy carbohydrates. If you want to reap the ultimate benefits of yams, I would suggest skipping the idea of “candied yams”. Adding the sugar to the yams will dilute the health benefits of the yam, so a great alternative is using a small amount of butter or coconut oil and a couple dashed of salt and pepper. No sugar needed to enjoy.
High in Antioxidants (Carotenoids, Zeaxanthin and Lutein) and also high in Fiber, Iron, and Zinc. If you can find a Pumpkin Pie recipe without all the sugar, you will be all set!
As you can see, Thanksgiving can be very healthy for you. How you can ensure that Thanksgiving is a healthy meal for you, is to avoid sugar as much as possible. Another thing that you can do, is be sure that you eat until you are satisfied. Don’t just keep eating more and more just because food is there. That’s what leftovers is for! Don’t get so stuffed that you feel sick. If you do, you aren’t benefiting your body the way you should be.
