I woke up not feeling so well, so kept my workout easy with plank and yoga! It was just want I needed to start to my day!
Lori – Everyday I feel strong with my yoga practice! Thank you Tara Stiles for guiding me.
Michelle’s Wednesday eats:
Breakfast – Juice with coconut oil and egg green scramble with ghee.
Lunch – bone broth with sea salt and coconut oil, and grass-fed burger (from us wellness meats) veggie romaine wrap with coconut oil
Snack – leftover fish with 2 raw grated carrots topped with coconut oil
Later afternoon I decided to tackle -LIVER.
Remember I bought some beef liver the other day at Wholefoods (Lori had some chicken liver) and we both have been talking about trying out liver. So we browsed a lot of recipes using liver in meatballs and many added a lot of other ingredients (spices, onions, eggs, coconut or almond flour) which all sounded great, but we are still trying to keep things simple. We did decide to add in some fresh basil, salt, black pepper, and nutritional yeast to help with flavor!!!
I noticed when I was browsing recipes that not many people actually show the steps. And I can see why. So I apologize for the not-so-appealing-picture above, but it is honestly what it looks like. Working with raw meat is not pretty!!! Lori and I still trying to “enjoy” working with raw meats. For so many years we never had to worry about things like raw meat, eggs, etc but now it is all we worry about. Anyone else worry about working with these raw meat and eggs?
- Beef Liver Meatballs
- 1 lb grass-fed beef
- ¼ lb (or more if you like) of liver (beef, chicken, again whatever you have)
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- handful fresh basil
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- ½ tsp sea salt
- Pre-heat oven to 350.
- Pre-heat oven to 350.
- Place everything into a food processor and pulse together. Then do your best to roll into ball shapes as it will be sticky. Place beef liver meatballs onto a baking tray.
- Bake for 25 minutes.
Dinner – purple cauliflower, turnips, salmon, and tuna (fish was from wholefoods)
I baked the cauliflower and turnips in oven lightly coated with coconut oil in 350 for about 30-40 minutes. I baked a whole salmon filet in oven for about 20-25 minutes (and saved most of it to enjoy today) and pan seared tuna. Topped with coconut oil.
Michelle’s recap – Started my day with morning supplements and enjoyed sugar-free marshmallows. Drank 8 cups water. I had one cup dandy tea and one peppermint tea. I did have two small bowel movements. Overall my stomach felt fine, just had a headache that was with me pretty much all day. I did take my pre-dinner supplements and enjoyed more marshmallows before bed. Plus took 2 magnesium pills, which thank you for everyone sharing your thoughts on magnesium supplements. Both Lori and I learn so much from our readers!
After a wonderful yoga session with the lovely Tara Stiles it was time to take my morning pills, eat some marshmallows and make my juice.
Another beet carrot romaine, cucumber, fennel juice. For some reason I did not really enjoy my juice yesterday, I guess it is getting boring and missing my fruit and lemons.
Little bit later it was time for some food. Sautéed mixed greens in ghee and turmeric with eggs, topped with more ghee and enjoyed one raw egg yolk.
Mid-morning I enjoyed some dandy tea for some studying motivation.
Late lunch was bone broth with coconut oil. Served with shredded brussel sprouts, chopped up buffalo burger, few turnips, and sardines. Topped with coconut oil.
Enjoyed this meal outside as yesterday was a PERFECT day in terms of weather. It was sunny and high 60′s! I wish everyday could be like that
Studied all afternoon outside. I think Jax really enjoyed the warmer weather too. Loved being able to sit outside and get my Vitamin D. Soooo looking forward to Spring!
Our shadows. Jax being my protection while I study. He stood like this for a good 10-15 minutes. Silly vizsla.
Got some samples from the amazing people over at The Honest Kitchen for Jax to try!! So excited to see how Jax does with this dog food! I got samples for their grain-free dog food the Love, Zeal, and Embark!
Mid-afternoon snacks were more marshmallows and raw shredded carrots, coconut oil and half can salmon. Strange but good!
Jax , my shadow, wondering what in the world am I eating. haha
Enjoyed some peppermint tea and felt really inspired by these quotes!!! “Be strong, you never know who you are inspiring.” —- > LOVE!!!! Inspiration is an unlimited power. —-> yes it is!!!
Something I strive to do everyday – inspire and be inspired!
Dinner was pan sautéed mahi mahi, with sautéed butter lettuce and steamed broccoli. Topped with olive oil. Delicious. I did take my pre-dinner supplements.
My day recap:
Overall it was a decent day. I got about 8 cups water (not including bone broth or juice). My digestion was great yesterday, just still dealing with a headache and nausea. But Michelle and I are thinking it may be from the skin of the beets (which a blog reader mentioned), our magnesium levels stress, or just a mental thing I did have a good morning bowel movement. Like I mentioned above I really enjoyed my day of sitting outside in getting lots of fresh air and sun!!! I felt so calm and happy all day long.
I did enjoy some more marshmallows with a little coconut oil before bed. And took some magnesium pills but forgot to do magnesium oil on body.
Twins question: Anyone else heard or tried the Honest Kitchen pet food? Anyone ever try liver based meatballs before? Would you ever try them? What are you tips for dealing raw meat? How do you clean-up afterwards??
We have been working on a grocery list and tips blog posts for those interested in more of what we did to heal our gut in our 30 day journey. And also did a make-up video. We hope to have those posts up soon.
till next time,
