I love holidays. I mean who doesn’t? No school/work, waking up without an alarm, doing whatever you want all day, every day. That’s life.
You know what else is really good? Fresh juice.
I’m also really loving simple meals that come together fast, full of good-for-you ingredients that are satisfying and nutritious.
And lets not forget dinner…
I was very fortunate to find a health food store near me that stocks grass-fed meat at an incredibly affordable price. I bought grass fed beef’s tongue (a spanish delicacy) and then compared it to another beef tongue I had bought at my local grocery store. The conventional beef cost $11/kg while the grass fed one cost me only $4/kg! Goes to prove that eating locally, humanely raised meats is well worth the price.
Beef tongue is a tougher cut of meat and therefore you must first pre cook it in a slow cooker or pressure cooker and then finish cooking it in a sauce made of tomatoes, onions, spices, and white wine. Besides being very nutrient dense, beef tongue becomes incredibly tender and delicious when cooked. Here I served it over some cauliflower rice. Best meal ever.
Happy Hump Day!
