Yield: 6 servings

1/4 tsp dried pepper flakes (1 mL)
6 tuna steaks (6 oz/170 g each), rinsed and pat dry
canola oil cooking spray
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves (125 mL)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves (60 mL)
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (30 mL)
1 Tbsp white vinegar (15 mL)
1/2 tsp minced garlic (2 mL)
Directions

2 – Preheat grill. Coated with cooking spray over high heat. Meanwhile, in another small bowl, combine cilantro, basil, lime juice, vinegar and garlic.
3 – Remove tuna from bag, discarding any leftover marinade, and grill tuna for 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until very pink in center (internal temperature of 145F/65C).

It’s Nuts I tell you………..ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER

This week from the nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) its ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER. Wheat Powder is just one of the items that you’ll find at the Nuts site (https://nuts.com/). You can choose from GIFTS, NUTS, DRIED FRUIT, CHOCOLATES and SWEETS, SNACKS, COFFEE and TEA, COOKING and BAKING, and more! Plus there’s Everyday Free Shipping, see for details. So now on to the ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

 

ORGANIC WHEATGRASS POWDER

Organic wheatgrass powder is all natural whole leaf organic wheatgrass bound into a perfect powder. Considered one of the most potent leafy green vegetables, wheatgrass powder is packed with beta-carotene, calcium, chlorophyll, fiber, iron and vitamin K and is non-GMO.

Wheatgrass is the sprouted shoot of wheat. Our organic wheatgrass powder is made from dehydrated wheatgrass to preserve active enzymes and maintain a naturally-rich nutrient profile.

Health Benefits
Organic wheatgrass powder contains an abundance of chlorophyll, which helps detoxify and cleanse the body while eliminating harmful toxins. Chlorophyll is also the reason wheatgrass has an alkalizing effect on the body, balancing pH levels and correcting a build-up of acids, which can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. This alkalizing process also helps deliver oxygen to your cells, giving you a boost of energy. Wheatgrass enhances your body’s ability to ward off infections because it contains immune-boosting nutrients like beta-carotene and vitamin C. By weight, wheatgrass is approximately 85% pure plant protein and is made up of more than 20 amino acids. Wheatgrass is also a rich source of dietary fiber, iron, and folic acid, and has the capacity to absorb 92 minerals from the soil.

Preliminary research has been conducted to examine the potential health benefits of wheatgrass and the results have been promising:

1) A 2011 study from Acta Poloniae Pharmaceutica revealed that wheatgrass helped lower total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in mice with abnormally high cholesterol levels.

2) Nutrition and Cancer released a 2007 study suggesting that wheatgrass may reduce negative side effects for breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.

Tastes and Uses
Wheatgrass powder has a mild grassy flavor with a hint of sweetness that works well with juice, smoothies or water. Mix a teaspoon of organic wheatgrass powder into your drinks or sprinkle it on foods. The daily recommendation is 1-3 servings. The taste will blend right into a creamy salad dressing like this avocado wheat drizzle. For something a little sweeter try a wheatgrass smoothie, blended with soy milk and frozen fruits.

Ingredients
Organic Wheatgrass Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.

One of America’s Favorites – Cacciatore

Chicken cacciatore

 

 

Cacciatore (pronounced [kattʃaˈtoːre]) means “hunter” in Italian. In cuisine, alla cacciatora refers to a meal prepared “hunter-style” with onions, herbs, usually tomatoes, often bell peppers, and sometimes wine.

Cacciatore is popularly made with braised chicken (pollo alla cacciatora) or rabbit (coniglio alla cacciatora). The salamino cacciatore is a small salami that is seasoned with only garlic and pepper.

 

 

 
A basic cacciatore recipe usually begins with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil heated in a large frying pan. Chicken

Rabbit cacciatore

parts, dusted with salt and pepper, are seared in the oil for three to four minutes on each side. The chicken is removed from the pan, and most of the fat poured off. The remaining fat is used to fry the onions, peppers or other vegetables for several minutes. A small can of peeled tomatoes (drained of liquid and chopped coarsely) is typically added to the pan along with rosemary and a half cup of dry red wine. Bay leaf may be used, along with chopped carrot to give extra sweetness. The seared chicken parts are returned to the pan which is then covered. The dish is done after about an hour at a very low simmer. Cacciatore is often served with a rustic bread or pasta on the side.

 
Chicken cacciatore typically, but not always, includes base ingredients of onion, garlic, and tomato.

 

 

U.S.-style chicken cacciatore

There are many different variations of this entree based upon ingredients available in specific regions. For example, in southern Italy, cacciatore often includes red wine, while northern Italian chefs might use white wine. Some versions of the dish may use mushrooms.
In the United States, cacciatore dishes may be prepared with marinara sauce, though in Italy the dish does not always include tomatoes.
