Anyone own a Vitamix?

Started by Lorna~WordPress 101 Nov 30, 2011. 0 Replies

We used to own one, until someone (I won't mention who) broke it. If you're not familiar with what a Vitamix is or what it can do...it looks like a plain old blender. But it is super powerful. You…Continue

Marinated Chicken Breasts

Ingredients

1 to 2 tablespoons vinegar, like cider, balsamic, or red wine

2 to 3 teaspoons dried herbs, like thyme, oregano, rosemary, or crumbled bay leaf

1 to 2 tablespoons mustard, whole grain or Dijon

1 to 2 teaspoon garlic or onion powder, optional

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste… Ladies take it easy on the Salt

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast, each about 6 ounces

Directions: Put the vinegar, herbs, mustard, powders if using and oil in a large re-sealable plastic bag. Close the bag and shake to combine all the ingredients. Open the bag, drop in the chicken breast in the bag. Close and shake the bag to coat evenly

Heat a grill or grill pan. When the grill is hot, place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. You can also bake in a 375 degree F oven for 15 minutes, or until cooked through.

Vegan Creamy Peppercorn Ranch Dressing

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup lemon juice

2/3 cup hemp seed

2-4 garlic cloves

1-2 tsp. whole peppercorn

1 tsp. good salt (himalayan)

1/2 - 1 cup olive oil

Blend everything but oil in blender, on low, until smooth, about 4 minutes.  Add olive oil.  (Note:  I start off with 1/2 cup olive oil or until I have dressing consistency.  Then add more oil if needed.  The dressing will thicken in the refrigerator.)

Refrigerate overnight or 4-6 hours.

Hi, I am a health nut, too.  My site is all about organics, bamboo and hemp.  I have a great Creamy Peppercorn Recipe with hemp seeds in it.  It's vegan, it's good, and it is so good for you.  My husband loves it.  I'll find the recipe and share next time.

I want to eat healthier, but I have so little restraint when it comes to grabbing what is quick and what I am used to (fast food when I am out, or when I'm home, having something like mac and cheese which is a "staple" around here. ) I have great intentions, but then get busy or overwhelmed with other things in life so I go back to the ease of what I've always had since I don't have to think about it.   It's frustrating fighting with only myself!   I'm starting to try and only have good stuff in the house that is quick.  Any ideas for quick, easy, healthy foods will be welcome !
