Parchment-Baked Chicken 4 Ways

Note from Lois:
Scientific research has shown that aluminum has been known to contribute to Alzheimer's, so it's best to avoid it.  These recipes show how parchment paper can be used for baking in the oven as well.  A great idea!

Orange Cacao Nut Balls

A healthy snack or dessert!
A real winner in packed lunches!
Free of sugar, gluten, grain, dairy, and preservatives!
Full of delicious flavor!



Two closeups of the delicious goodness!







Ingredients:
2 cups raw walnuts, soaked, rinsed, and drained
10 pitted dates or prunes
3 Tbsp. raw cacao powder

6 drops wild orange essential oil (therapeutic grade)

1 tsp. pure vanilla

2 Tbsp. cacao nibs 

1/8 tsp. sea salt
stevia to taste (optional)

Soak walnuts overnight to remove phytic acid which can stop nutrients from being absorbed in the digestive system and reduce the digestibility of these foods.  Grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds typically contain the highest levels of phytic acid.  After soaking the nuts, rinse well, and drain.

Grind all the ingredients in a food processor at high speed until it turns into the consistency of a dough.

Squeeze it into balls and store in the refrigerator or freezer.  If planning to use these for packed lunches, wrap individually and place in the freezer until ready to use.

Mango Chicken

Used by permission from Hope at hopeful-things.blogspot.com
I once had some fresh mangos I needed to use up and googled "mango chicken recipe."   I found a recipe with some unusual spices -but decided to give it a try. I've tweaked the recipe a bit and it's now a family favorite.

I serve it over rice and beans with a side of creamy cole slaw.



Mango Chicken

5-10 chicken thighs, cut into pieces
olive oil + salt

Mix together
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. white pepper
1 tsp. red pepper 

1/2 onion sliced
2 cups chopped mangos or peaches
(can use fresh or frozen)
a splash of lemon juice

Heat a kettle and coat well with olive oil. Add chicken pieces and sprinkle one side liberally with your spice mixture. I used about 3/4 of the spice mixture this evening on 8 chicken thighs.
Once chicken is browned flip over and salt the other side.
When your chicken seems close to done add your sliced onions, cover and simmer until they are a little soft. Then add mangos or peaches, cover and simmer until they are soft and juicy. Add a splash of lemon juice for a fresh taste. If the mixture seems really juicy just uncover and simmer until juices reduce. 

Serve over rice and beans.
 For rice and beans I cook 1 1/2 cups of rice with 1 can of black beans
and 1 tsp. of salt. Add water according to rice package directions.
Some rice requires more water than others.

Garnish with fresh basil.

Tangy Green Apple Salad Jars


Recipe by Tammy Lackey - Used by permission

Serves 6

We went to Applebee’s for lunch and ate a dish topped with a cucumber and green apple salsa with a lime dressing, which inspired this dinner salad. The tangy green apple plays nicely with the lime dressing. Because the dressing and heavy ingredients are on the bottom, salad jars made using this method keep in the fridge for up to a week depending on the ingredients!

You will need:
6 wide-mouthed quart jars OR 6 square quart-sized containers
Kraft Zesty Lime Vinaigrette dressing
2 cans white beans, rinsed and drained (I used
Cannellini)
1 red onion
2 green bell peppers
3 granny smith apples
1 large English cucumber
1 head (or 2 hearts) romaine lettuce

Assemble each salad container in this order, dividing the ingredients evenly among the 6 salads:

¼ cup lime vinaigrette dressing
½ cup white beans
Sliced red onion
Quartered and sliced green peppers
Quartered and sliced green apples
Quartered (lengthwise) and sliced English cucumber
Chopped lettuce to fill each container, packing lightly
Cover and refrigerate.

To serve, dump in a large salad bowl.
If you NEED more calories/food, you could add some sliced avocado to the salad, or serve baked tortilla chips on the side.

How to Make Vegetable Stock Concentrate

Reboot With JoeBlogRecipes

Homemade Vegetable Stock Concentrate

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND
Well this is an exciting addition to my freezer and fridge! In the past I have used herbamare (herbed natural sea salt) and a natural additive free organic stock to flavor my meals, but this is a great easy and delicious alternative that not only adds GREAT flavor to all my healthy homemade savory dishes but it also adds electrolytes and other nutrients. This is a far cry from using your average packaged stock powders and liquids. I normally encourage people to read the ingredients of all their food including their stock to see what you’re really putting into your body.

When using it, you can add one to two tablespoons for every 2 cups (500 mls) or it is equivalent to 1 stock cube or 1 tsp. of powder. The beauty of making your own stock means you can use any old vegetable that’s lying around in the fridge that needs using up. Here is a basic recipe to follow and you can simply add or delete what you like. This keeps in the fridge for up to 6 weeks in an air-tight jar and it also freezes well. You can also use ½ tsp. in hot water while Rebooting as a broth substitute in-between your juices! Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 4 celery sticks
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 zucchini (courgette)
  • 1 brown onion
  • 1 leek
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme or 1 Tbsp. fresh
  • 1 tsp. dried rosemary or 1 Tbsp. fresh
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley
  • ½ cup Himalayan or sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil (extra-virgin)

Directions:

  1. Wash and chop vegetables.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a high powdered blender and process until a smooth consistency forms.
  3. Add the mixture to a saucepan and cover on low heat and simmer stirring frequently for 20 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool then store in a few smaller air-tight containers and refrigerate or freeze.

Substitutions:

  • Celery – swiss chard (silverbeet) (including stems)
  • Carrots – pumpkin, sweet potato, winter squash
  • Zucchini –  spinach, kale
  • Brown onion – red onion, shallots
  • Leek – spring onion, onion
  • Olive oil – coconut oil
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Coconut Quinoa Granola

Easy Way to Clean Shower Mother's Day Gift My "Secret" To Getting Lots Done Southwestern Black Bean Salad How to Plan an Open House Cake Batter Confetti Rice Crispy Treats
Used by permission from Margo Park at Joyful Homemaking
https://joyfulhomemaking.com/2013/04/coconut-quinoa-granola.html

What is quinoa? According to Reader’s Digest, it is a grain/seed that is rich in protein, and a nice source of amino acids, iron, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium, and has 5 grams of fiber in each cup. It is so versatile as well, since you can use it in cereal or muffins for breakfast, or in soups, salads or veggie burgers, and even many other types of dishes. I checked a book out of the library entitled, 500 Best Quinoa Recipes by Camilla V. Saulsbury, and it has some amazing looking recipes.

When I saw this recipe for granola with quinoa, almonds, coconut and coconut oil,

granola
I couldn’t wait to try it because it has so many healthy ingredients in it, and it turned out delicious!
(It can be made gluten free as well!)

Here is my slightly modified version:

2 cups rolled oats (not the instant kind)
1 cup rinsed and drained quinoa
1 cup flaked coconut (recipe calls for unsweetened, but I used sweetened, and it was fine)
3/4 cup chopped almonds
1 1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 cup warmed coconut oil
1/2 cup honey (or you can use brown rice syrup)
2/3 cup cranraisins (or you can use your favorite dried fruit)

Spinach Almond Butter Pick-Me-Up Drink

Recipe by Lois Breneman - Heart to Heart - 2016



This is a much easier way to consume a large handful of fresh spinach if you're on the run (or even if you're not).  Spinach is loaded with protein and the almond butter adds even more!  It's delicious!  You might be surprised at how much you'll love this drink.  I do!


Drop the following four ingredients into a Magic Bullet or blender, and give it a whirl:

1 large handful of fresh spinach
3/4 to 1 cup almond or coconut milk, unsweetened
1 Tbsp. almond butter (only ingredients being almonds - no sugar)
a tiny bit of stevia
 
Enjoy!

Almond Butter Bread - Grain-free, Gluten-free


Gluten-free, Grain-free, Sugar-free, Dairy-free, Yeast-free, Low Carbohydrate, and a Good Source of Protein

Notes from Lois:
Cancer can't survive without sugar, so just in case there may be a minute amount of cancerous cells lurking in my body, I don't want to give it fuel.  Having seen my mother and others suffer from cancer, let's just say I want to do all I can to avoid that dreaded disease.

Since going sugar-free, gluten-free and grain-free, I have come to really enjoy a slice of this toasted bread with eggs.  A teaspoon of almond butter on top is delicious!


This recipe does not fall as some similar recipes do. 

Another way to add extra flavor to this bread would be to toast it and sprinkle a cinnamon and stevia mixture over the buttered bread.

Trader Joe's or Costco's carries almond butter at good prices.  The only ingredient should be almonds - no sugar or other sweetener.  I prefer the crunchy in this recipe.  If you don't use crunchy almond butter, you may want to add slivered almonds for some crunch!

I buy coconut oil at Vitacost, iherb, or Costco.  It should be organic, extra virgin, and cold pressed oil.  Whole Foods is another good source.


Real salt, tapioca flour, and stevia (I use Nustevia which is super sweet - use very little) are purchased from i-herb.    There is no shipping fee when ordering a relatively small amount, and the package arrives in just a few days.

When I make this recipe, I mix enough ingredients for 4 loaves and place the batter into 3 large loaf pans.  


The almond butter from Costco's contains 3 cups, so no stirring or measuring is necessary when going by the 4 loaf recipe.

I still use my aluminum bread pans, but line them carefully with parchment paper, so the batter doesn't touch the pan at all.  And with no greasing, they lift right out of the pan when removed from the oven!

After the loaves cool completely, I slice them and place them into freezer bags and freeze.  I keep the loaf I am using stored in the refrigerator.


I also add 4 to 8 oz. dried cranberries, sweetened with apple juice to a 4-loaf batch.  Delicious!  Most dried cranberries have sugar, so I avoid those.

I also add doTERRA essential oils to the batter ~ 10 drops each of wild orange and lemon essential oil for delicious flavor.  It must be a brand that is therapeutically safe to ingest.

Wet ingredients:

Yield: 1 loaf                                               Yield: 4 loaves 
                                                                    I put this into 3 pans)

3/4 cup crunchy almond butter           (3 cups)
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted                   (1 cup)
4 eggs, organic, pastured                       (16 eggs)

10 drops wild orange essential oil, therapeutically pure
10 drops lemon essential oil, therapeutically pure


Dry Ingredients:
1/2 tsp. baking soda                                 (2 tsp.)
1/2 tsp. sea salt (I use Real Salt)            (2 tsp.)     
1/4 cup almond flour                               (1 cup)
1/4 cup tapioca flour                                (1 cup)

1 tsp. cinnamon (or to taste)                   (1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp.)
stevia to taste                                             (to taste)
dried cranberries, sweetened with apple juice  (4-8 oz.)


Instructions:
1.  Turn oven to 325 degrees.
2.  Grease or line the bottom and sides of a 9 x 5 bread pan with parchment paper, covering all aluminum.
3.  Blend the wet ingredients in a mixer.
4.  Add the dry ingredients and mix only until blended.  The batter will be thick and quite sticky.
5.  Spoon into prepared bread pan, and bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until the dough pulls away from the edges of the pan and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
6.  Allow to cool on a rack.  After cooled completely, slice into 16 slices and store in a Ziplock freezer bag in freezer.  Store the one you are using at the time in the refrigerator.



Three loaves (using the 4-loaf recipe), will last 39 days (16 slices each).
