I am a meat eater and I still consider myself a yogi. I will write about the deets later on. I was a vegetarian for 6+ years, but the diet did not fit my body. More on my meathead transition later. For NOW...my 1st recipe post!
I am currently completing me 2nd elimination diet. Three weeks of clean eating that eliminates inflammatory foods such as eggs, dairy, nuts, legumes, wheat, corn, and soy. Three years ago I completed a food intolerance test that helped me pin point which foods to stay away from. I had an intense bout of "leaky gut" and was 30lbs heavier. I had a horrible memory, lots of brain fog, horrible digestion, lots of pain, lots of acne, and so much fatigue. I was DONE feeling like shit 24/7, so I made a change. I followed the elimination diet for 4 months, lost 30lbs, and began my path towards health. HALLELUJAH. I have hypothyroidism and PCOS, so prioritizing health is #1 for me! It took me years to develop healthy habits, but anything is possible.
I am completing another elimination diet, to see if my food intolerances have changed. Sadly, gluten may always be my nemesis (instant arthritis, inflammation, breakouts, fatigue, constipation). WAH! But it's COOL! There are SO many fabulous things I can enjoy that do my body good. This round of elimination diet has me questioning if eggs, dairy, or nuts bother me. Here's to hoping NO, but we shall see! So, I am going to add ONE potential food allergen at a time to see how my body reacts. This process takes 2 months, but it is 100% worth it. It's my life!
I am LOVING this delicious, easy recipe during my elimination diet or for every day eating! It's a great balance of healthy carbohydrates (vegetables), protein, and fats! Here ya go, hungry friend!
1. Mix organic cauliflower, avocado oil, curry powder, turmeric powder, black pepper, and salt in a bowl. Toss those cauli-babies around to make sure the delicious curry gets all over. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Eat 1/2-1 cup, and save the rest for later!
2. Sautee organic beef on medium to low heat until cooked. Flavor anyway you'd like! I love adding the same spices to the beef as I do to the cauliflower. OR a simple addition of S&P does wonders! If you have a sweet tooth, adding cinnamon to your beef is a great way to curb that craving and stabilize your blood sugar! I know it may sound wild, but c'mon...live a little!
3. Slice 1/4-1/2 an avocado and scoop 2-4tbsp of sauerkraut onto your plate.
4. Fill your plate with these goods and add chopped cilantro on top!
5. Enjoy and eat over 15 minutes to ensure proper digestion! I call this RAINBOW BALANCE.
