Perfect Beach Bonfire Dinner

20120602-213054.jpg

You don’t have to have nitrate filled hot dogs & smores to have fun at a bonfire.  Just get out your kettle pot, cut up some veggies, meat, spices, dash of balsamic vinegar, water & add a bit of coconut oil.  Set on the fire & stir every 3-5 minutes.  It is soooo yummy & clean!  We also cooked some nitrate free chicken apple sausage and I made my 111 peanut butter cookies for dessert. (1 cup pb, 1 egg, 1 cup organic sugar.  Roll into balls, press flat with fork & bake for 10 minutes at 350)

Ingredients:
2 organic chicken breasts
12-15 quartered brussels sprouts
2 chopped carrots
1 large onion
1 head broccoli
1.5 sweet potatoes, chopped
2 tbsps coconut oil
Big dash of balsamic vinegar
Spices (I used salt, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, parsley)
A little water
Dash of grapeseed oil on top

Put the coconut oil in the bottom of your kettle pot, add all chopped veggies, spices, vinegar & water.  Chop the chicken breasts and put into a ziplock on ice.  When you are ready to cook the meal throw the chicken on top, put your lid on and put on the fire.  Stir every 5-7 minutes and towards the end stir every 3-5 minutes.  It cooks very quickly!

ENJOY!

Coconut Oil – The Miracle Drug!

EAT YOUR COCONUT OIL!  So many people think it is unhealthy due to it’s fat content, but this is quite 0pposite.  They are finding that it is reversing, preventing & curing Alzheimer’s, Dementia etc.

Just make sure it is PURE coconut oil & UNREFINED Organic is best.  Some of the cheaper brands have hydrogenated oil in them which is transfat (a man made fat) = BAD!  So the only ingredient should be Organic Coconut Oil.  You will pay about $10-12 per jar.  It is worth it!  You can suate, add to your warm cereals, coat your meat, bake & much more!

Here is a powerful video that was shown on CBN News:

I typically buy my coconut oil here at Iherb.com or on Amazon.com.  Or you will find it at any local health food store like New Frontiers,  Whole Foods or Grande Foods.
