Add vegetables for fiber and moisture……

One way to up the nutrients in your baked goods is to add some shredded or chopped veggies. Zucchini, carrots, riced cauliflower and spinach are good ones to try. You’ll increase the fiber, which helps prevent blood sugar spikes. You’ll also add valuable vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Additionally, veggies add moisture so you may be able to cut back on fat.

Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes
In this healthy side dish recipe, sweet potatoes are tossed with maple syrup, butter and lemon juice and roasted until tender and golden brown. The delicious glaze that forms on these maple-roasted sweet potatoes transforms this ultra-simple dish into something sublime……

Spatchcock Turkey with Sage and Thyme
When it comes to cooking a whole turkey quickly and evenly, spatchcocking–removing the entire backbone from the bird and splaying it open–is a great technique. This skin on this spatchcocked turkey gets crispy and browned because nearly all of the skin is exposed. This recipe uses a simple blend of oil, fresh herbs and spices for classic roasted turkey flavor. Look for a small turkey, about 12 pounds, as it fits better in most roasting pans……

Loaded Scalloped Potatoes with Bacon, Cheddar and Chives
Imagine a loaded baked potato topped with bacon, Cheddar and chives combined with the creamy goodness of scalloped potatoes, and you have the ultimate comfort food casserole. This scalloped potato recipe is made healthier than original versions by using low-fat milk in place of heavy cream, but it still tastes just as rich and creamy……

5 SPICE BBQ BUFFALO RIBS
AUTHOR:
Jill O’Brien

This recipe was inspired by Dr. Mark Hyman. I stayed true to the seasonings but modified the technique from baking to braising, as it has been my experience that baking true 100% grass-fed/grass-finished meats does not work. Braising is required to break down the connective tissues for a fall-off-the-bone tenderness. The results were delicious! This recipe may look long and complicated, but it is super easy! You can find Dr. Hyman’s recipe here. Note: If using Back Ribs, reduce cooking time to one hour.

INGREDIENTS

INGREDIENTS FOR RIBS:
3 – pounds Buffalo Short Ribs or 2 packages Back Ribs
1½ – teaspoons Chinese Five Spice
¾ – teaspoon ground ginger
1½ – teaspoons garlic powder
1½ – teaspoons onion powder
½ – teaspoon sea salt
2 – cups Buffalo Broth or organic beef or chicken broth, heated

INGREDIENTS FOR ROASTED CARROTS & ONIONS:
8 – carrots, peeled and split lengthwise
2 – onions, peeled and cut into wedges
olive oil
salt and pepper

INGREDIENTS FOR BBQ SAUCE:
½ – cup unsweetened, unsalted tomato paste
¼ – teaspoon all-natural liquid smoke (optional)
1 – teaspoon Chinese 5 Spice
½ – teaspoon garlic powder
½ – teaspoon onion powder
2 – tablespoons coconut aminos or tamari
2 – tablespoons apple cider vinegar
½ to 1 cup reserved braising liquid

DIRECTIONS
5 SPICE BBQ BUFFALO RIBS
1 – Rinse the ribs and pat them dry. Place the ribs in a pan, spacing them apart.
2 – Combine all of the rib spices in a bowl.
3 – Rub all the spices into the meat. Cover and allow the ribs to rest for 1 to 2 hours at room temperature.
4 – Preheat the oven to 350°.
5 – Bake the ribs, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
6 – Add the hot broth and cover with foil. Continue to cook/braise for 1½ hours. Check meat for tenderness; if it is not to your desired tenderness, continue to braise for another 20 minutes or until preferred tenderness is reached.
7 – Place the carrots and onions on a baking sheet, drizzle generously with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper, tossing to coat. Add the pan to the oven after the ribs have cooked for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
8 – While the ribs and vegetables are cooking, mix all of the BBQ sauce ingredients together.
9 – Remove the braised ribs and roasted vegetables from the oven and transfer the ribs to the baking sheet with the roasted vegetables.
10 – Drain juices from the braising pan and add ½ to 1 cup of the reserved pan juices to the sauce.
11 – Turn the oven to broil and place a rack on second shelf from the top.
12 – Mop the ribs with the sauce and place in the oven. Broil until the sauce starts to bubble a bit, about 4 minutes. Turn the ribs and repeat mopping and broiling.
REMOVE FROM THE OVEN AND SERVE. YOU WILL LOVE THIS!

Instant-Pot Roast Beef
This classic Instant Pot roast beef features carrots, onions and potatoes in a rich and flavorful sauce that can be served over rice or whole-wheat egg noodles. If the roast is loose after trimming, tie it together with kitchen string so it holds its shape while it cooks……

Slow-Cooker Chuck Roast with Potatoes and Carrots
This slow-cooker chuck roast is winter comfort food at its finest. A bright, slightly sweet sauce balances the rich and tender braised beef. You can substitute multi-colored baby potatoes (halved) for the Yukon variety and fresh fennel fronds for the parsley, if desired.

Mediterranean Chuck Roast
Using a slow cooker means this simple crowd pleaser can be cooking while you’re at work. A persillade is a mixture of parsley and other seasonings that adds flavor and pizzaz to a dish. Try this one, with Kalamata olives and zesty lemon peel over the roast garnished with lemon wedges……
