I decided to follow one of my big passions and do MAKEOVERS! But not just fashion makeovers, food makeovers!!!
This week we are talking SLOPPY JOES by Rachel Ray. They are yummo, but the ingredients in it are yucko! Here is the link to the original one.
Here is my SLOPPY JOES that LOVE YOUR BODY, made-over:
1 tablespoon Grapeseed Oil
1 package of Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles
1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon organic steak seasoning blend
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon organic vegan Worcestershire sauce by Edwards and Sons
2 cups organic tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
4 crusty rolls, split, toasted - by DeLand
Here are the main things I want you to eliminate from this recipe and here is why:
Olive oil can get toxic when heated, so I only use grapeseed oil. Coconut oil can also work, but it has a strong scent.
Regular meat can constipate you (if you don't go to the bathroom 2-3 times a day, then you are most-likely constipated), it can cause break outs and can cause you to gain weight. And if the meat is not organic, you can rest assured it is most likely pumped with steroids, hormones and antibiotics that can create a mess in your body! Yucko!
McCormick Steak Seasonings says: Spices (Including Black Pepper And Red Pepper), Garlic, Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavor... ummm... spices "Including the pepper" but what are the others? What is exactly a "natural flavor"?? If you don't know what's in your food, why eat it?
Regular buns - regular, store-bought bread can be filled with chemicals and additives that your body has to work really hard on to eliminate. (why give your body extra work??) and non-organic gluten grains in the US are usually loaded with pesticides that cause American waist-lines to expand. So, skip that crap and either go for organic bread, if you don't have a gluten sensitivity or go for gluten-free.
So, there you go! Let me know if you have any questions and what your favorite recipes you would like me to make over :)
One of the biggest challenges my clients face when they start working with me is discovering that deep inside them there is a voice that sabotages their successes. Somewhere deep inside there is a voice that keeps telling them that they are not good enough… Continue reading here.
One of my favorite Disney movies is Beauty and the Beast. Little girls from an early age are taught to look through the looks and love people for who they are. I think we all consciously try to do that. Except for one person. In my line of work I often see women who can't fall in love with themselves. Continue reading here.
