Umeboshi-Sesame Vinaigrette

Another cold leftover chicken lunch. So easy. So good! I work all week at my “other job” so on Mondays when I cook for my clients I always make enough for easy grab-n-go options in my own fridge too. This plate took about 3 minutes to throw […]

Over Easies & Beet Greens

Over Easies & Beet Greens

Farm fresh over easies with garlic sautéed beet greens.

Pastured eggs, fresh from a local farm whenever you can get them, are naturally rich in long chain omega 3 fatty acids, and higher in Vitamin E and Vitamin D than the typical grocery store egg. This is because those chickens at the farm are roaming outdoors, pecking at bugs, eating grass and basking in the sun, the way nature intended.

Dark leafy greens are also packed with nutrients! Cooking them with some pastured ghee or another healthy fat helps your body assimilate all those fat-soluble vitamins.  I also like using butter flavored coconut oil, when a dish has to be 100% dairy free.

Sauté the garlic for a few seconds in the hot oil or ghee, then add your chopped beet greens, a sprinkle of S&P. Cook about 2 minute or until tender to your liking.
