London Broil with Lime-Garlic Ginger Marinade

 

Recipe will yield 4 to 8 serves.

Ingredients:

1/4  cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons coconut aminos
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 heaping teaspoon minced or grated fresh ginger
10 drops liquid stevia
1 to 2  lb flank steak, sirloin, or skirt steak (or tempeh, cut into chunks)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

 Instructions:

1. Combine the lime juice, coconut aminos, garlic, ginger, and stevia.

2. Make shallow slashes across the surface of the steak with a knife. Place the steak (or tempeh) in a resealable bag or shallow glass dish. Pour the marinade over it, cover, and marinate, refrigerated, for at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days.

3. Turn occasionally so that all surfaces of the steak or tempeh have good contact with the marinade. When near the end of the marinating time, remove from the refrigerator and allow to return to room temperature.

4. Prepare a grill for direct cooking at 450 to 500 degrees. Dry the steak or tempeh well with paper towels. Season with freshly ground pepper and salt.  (Go lightly on the salt since coconut aminos are already salty.)

5. Grill the steak for approximately 5 minutes per side, until the internal temperature reaches 125 degrees.

6. Remove from the grill, cover, and let the steak rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing, to allow the meat to relax. (If using tempeh, pan-fry in a nonstick skillet until golden and crispy.)

Great Green Smoothies – Kale, Lemon, Ginger: Any Phase

Kale is a superfood, loaded with antioxidants. It’s wonderful for your skin, helping reduce fine lines and crepey skin. It also helps balance the body’s pH plus it can help reduce bloating and water weight.

Ingredients:
1 cup water
A few cubes of ice
1/2 of a lemon, peeled and seeded
1/2 of a lime, peeled
1 cup packed kale
1/2 tablespoon grated, peeled ginger
pinch Celtic or Himalayan salt

Directions:

If you have a high-powered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec, green smoothies are not a problem. But if you have a regular blender, following these steps will get you a clump-free drink.

  1. Add water and ice first. The blades will spin more freely
  2. Add your leafy greens to the pitcher next
  3. Add chunky items next
  4. Add spices or seasonings

Now blend until smooth! You might have to stop and push everything down once or twice. If the smoothie is too thick, you can thin it with some water. In fact, one trick is to make a super thick smoothie, then store in the fridge. When you’re ready, just pop into a blender bottle, add water to thin it out, and shake. Another idea is to freeze in ice-cube trays, then thaw as you need them.

This recipes works as is for any Phase, any time.
Variations:
Phase 1: Add 1 cup blueberries. The color will be weird but it will be delicious!
Phase 2: Add organic raw egg whites to make this a snack or breakfast for Phase 2.
Phase 3: Add 1/2 avocado for a creamy Phase 3 snack.
