Kebabs – or shish kebobs – originated in Iran and is a popular Middle Eastern dish, usually consisting of lamb. But we can take the premise and get creative for some really cool ways to save time, eat clean, keep it simple, yet delicious! So…Don’t stress about the long weekends, summer BBQ’s, traveling, picnics, camp fires and Fourth of July celebrations. Each season gets a turn, but that’s no reason to stress about healthy eating. For summers, I always recommend kabobs! It can’t get easier. There’s really no hunk of meat, slice of fruit or vegetable wedge that cannot be impaled by a wooden kabob stick and then grilled over a flame. And summer doesn’t have to own these recipe ideas, either. Whenever we feel lazy or are in a hurry – anytime of the year – we just chop whatever’ in the fridge and stab them all together and grill.
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and a Joyful Solstice and Kwanzaa, everyone! I was trying to beat everyone to the down-pour of december-holiday excuses but I was too late. I’ve been incredibly busy and had forgotten to put this list together until I already began seeing the early signs of winter holiday binge-eating & binge-drinking allowances litter the social media and interwebs.

This time, I just felt it necessary to graciously distribute my recipe. Holidays are about helping the needy. This is for humanity:

Before we get our panties in a bunch, don’t go blasting me over trying to make a “mock bread”. It is simply for the consistency and convenience in other recipes (sandwiches, french toast etc). If your uber Paleolithic, then move on. If not, this is a very simple bread recipe and something I like to make for traveling purposes. It’s dense, and filling, so it makes a great travel snack and is much better for you than processed protein bars. It’s also very protein rich so it makes a good pre or post workout filler.
There isn’t much I consider better than wearing jeans & hoodies, going for a run on a cool, crispy morning… the smell of ranchers and farmers burning up their wood piles in the Fall, eating on the patio, hearing a baby giggle, having sex, and… well, pumpkin bread.
I am not talking about Swanson’s chicken broth in a can with a shelf life that will out-live you. Or the sewer water they serve you in the hospital. I am referring to this beautiful, beneficial, natural broth that is delicately made over a 2-4 day simmering period using grassfed bones…giving you BOUNTIFUL servings of calcium and gelatin which lack in numbers and comparison to our standard (American) diets.
