Avocado chocolate (vegan) pudding extravaganza

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: dessert, recipes, vegan, vegetarian, sugar-free

Not a fan of soy-burgers -- but you gotta love cooking vegan if for no other reason than this pudding. I've tried various internet recipes and none of them were that good -- but THIS is fantastic. A healthy, sugar 'free' treat for all.



Pepperoni and Pea Pasta

Posted by Josh King | Tags: pepperoni, recipes, delimeat

We don’t generally have extra pepperoni to use for anything besides pizza, but we thought we should probably find another option for anyone looking to be more creative than we are! This recipe is quick to cook and uses ingredients that we generally have in the house. We don’t eat pasta often so when we do we want to make sure it is something really good!



Breakfast Burritos

Posted by Josh King | Tags: breakfast, recipes, eggs, sausage

We used to make breakfast burritos all the time. At some point we fell for the marketing gimmicks and used to think that somehow those fake sausage soy crumbles were good for us, so we’d use those. Now of course we realize that soy is pretty damaging to our bodies and that factory made sausages are deficient in key vitamins, full of crazy artificial or ‘natural’ toxic flavors and thus we wouldn’t touch the stuff. Instead, here’s a great way to nourish your body with a tasty treat!



Tamale Pie

We loved when we used to have time to make tamales. Our cousin, Andy, got us into it with a really complicated recipe that took about 20 hours to make a meal for four people. Those were the days. No time? No Corn husks? It’s a perfect time for Tamale Pie! This recipe makes a lot of food, we put half or more of it away for a future quick meal.



Preparing Perfect Pastured Pork Chops

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: article, newsletter, handbook, pork, recipes, pork chop, sous vide

We've learned a lot over the years on how to prepare tender juicy pork -- not that dry cardboard stuff you might remember. A well prepared organic pork chop can rival any steak, give it a shot!



Penne in Cream Sauce with Italian Sausage

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, sausage

It is so nice to have organic spiced, pasture raised Italian sausage! Here is a great dish that is super easy and any leftovers are even better!



Coconut Chicken Confit Pad Thai

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, eggs, chicken, drumsticks, thighs, vegetarian, newsletter

I don't think I would have come up with this recipe -- but it sure is a great way to showcase our slow growth dark meat chicken. Making a coconut poached drumstick really is simple to do and a perfect compliment to Pad Thai. This is a classic in the making.



Roasted Cauliflower With Garlic

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: sides, recipes, vegan, vegetarian

This is fantastic -- a superfood and easy to make. When I first tried making this, I didn't expect much, but it turned out so good that I was glad I made two whole cauliflowers worth!



Beet Chips

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, sides, vegetarian

Beets are SO good, but they also require planning ahead to roast and use in things... I love having this quick option for a great salty and sweet snack or side dish!



Kale Chips

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, side, vegetarian

These chips are amazing.. so simple and healthy... but watch out, they are addictive and you'll never make enough to satisfy everyone the first time!



Grandpa Cucumbers

I've always loved these 'Grandpa' cucumbers, easy to make and a great side for almost anything.



Sauteed cabbage and peas

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, side, vegetarian

Simple easy side dish.... I can't believe how good fried cabbage is, I mean its just cabbage!



Herb-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, chicken, breast

Looking for a fresh, easy, and tasty way to use your boneless chicken breasts? We loved this. We separated the tenders from the breasts and made them all the same way so we ended up with normal-sized and kid-sized rolls in the end.



Birthday Cake Challenge

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: dessert, recipes, sugar-free

I can hear it now - Oh come on... really? what has this world come to when kids need a sugar free birthday cake?!? Wait... Just wait... this cake is really good, I promise. It also is super healthy for you and your kids. There are no 'pretend' colors, or allergens, or anything that should cause any distress to a growing or aging body. Oh, did I mention it takes no time to make?



Deconstructed Meatballs

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, pork, ground pork

Meatballs take more time that we have right now. Instead of spending my entire evening cooking, I made the following recipe loosely based on the meatball recipe. We served this on top of plain cooked quinoa, but any grain you like to use would do fine. Rice, cous cous, pasta – use whatever you have in your pantry.
