So, today, on Rare Disease Day, I'd like to take the opportunity to share some quick things that millennials (ugh) living through their teens and twenties with chronic illnesses will know. I hope that this will serve to help people be more understanding and aware of what they can do to support their friends and loved ones who fight every day for their health.
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
