Fat-free does not mean healthy, it's generally pretty much the opposite. Low fat milk, diet yoghurts, margarine, fat-free mayonnaise & 'healthy whole grains' is what has been preached to the public for a number of years now. Since that began people have become fatter & sicker. Heart disease, obesity & diabetes have increased.
This doesn't look like a regular stroganoff but man it tastes amazing! The thighs don't dry out and are a taste sensation! It tastes just like the beef stroganoff my mum used to make when we were little, only less beefy ;) Get on it, you'll love it. Serve it with zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice for a great nutrient-packed & low carbohydrate accompaniment.
Beef cheek comes from the cows' facial muscle not their butt cheek. It is well developed from all the 'cud chewing' they do & it is packed with gelatin-rich connective tissue making it a pretty tough cut to throw on the BBQ but perfect for slow cooking. Gelatin is brilliant for the health of our skin, hair, nails, digestion, immune system & joints.
This tastes just like carrot cake only with bucket-loads more nutritional value than cake. Yeah, it has zucchini in it but don't have a meltdown, you can't even taste it, it just adds goodness. Zucchini is low calorie and a great source of fibre. It is rich in vitamin A, flavonoid and poly-phenolic antioxidants
While at work last week I was chatting about food - always on the agenda - and he was describing how ill and bloated he feels after eating pasta. He went on to say that even though he feels sick every single time, he still eats it regularly because "It's a treat". It literally takes days for his body to recover.
This is the perfect dessert to whip out whenever you hear someone saying healthy food is bland tasting. It is just as indulgent and comforting as the original, only far better for you. So whether you are celebrating thanksgiving on Thursday or just looking for an excuse to indulge, cosy down with this gloriously 'guilt-free' pecan pie.
