Teach. Eat. Repeat. Recipe: Turkey Lettuce Wraps

20160531_LETTUCE_WRAPS

As spring begins to heat up and summer approaches, we’re looking for our meals to get a little bit lighter. We do tacos wrapped in lettuce a ton, but this time we decided to go for Asian flavors! As a child we often frequented P.F. Chang’s and ALWAYS had to get the lettuce wraps. We tried to recreate those flavors here with our own fresh twist. Serve with a simple cucumber salad or sautéed green beans!

 What You Need

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil or coconut oil

Teach. Eat. Repeat. Recipe: Sesame Zoodles with Chicken

Recipe: Sesame Zoodles

Last week, Ali Maffucci of Inspiralized repurposed one of the amazing recipes from Chrissy Teigen’s new cookbook, Cravings, swapping in zoodles for the fettuccine in Chrissy’s version. It looked so amazing; we knew we had to try it out. We continued the experimenting and tweaked the recipe further to make it 100% Whole 30-approved. Try it out and let us know what you think!

Teach. Eat. Repeat. Recipe: Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

Yellow wall clock in the kitchen

Cauliflower fried “rice” is the perfect side dish to our Beef and Broccoli, or as a meal by itself topped with an egg or with your favorite protein. It’s a great way to cut carbs, but still get something that feels indulgent. With the fish sauce and coconut aminos, it will taste just like your favorite Chinese take-out place’s.

What You Need

  • 1 medium head (about 24 oz) cauliflower, rinsed, OR 1 bag Trader Joe’s riced cauliflower (defrost if frozen)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

Teach. Eat. Repeat. Recipe: Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli

Between the gluten in soy sauce and our move to more Paleo foods, we haven’t eaten Chinese food in a few years. (We know, practically sacrilegious for New Yorkers!) But to be honest, we’ve never loved it, and when we feel like “cheating,” we’d much rather order a beautiful gluten-free pizza with all the toppings.

That said, the sticky, spicy, garlicky sauce of Beef & Broccoli has been calling to us in recent days. We decided to give this Whole30-inspired beef and broccoli a go. It was a win; we ate it over cauliflower, “fried” rice for a veggie-filled meal. You’ll notice we used frozen broccoli; as if you needed even more incentive to use a slow cooker, there’s no need to defrost. Just dump it in!

Teach. Eat. Repeat. Recipe: Indoor Seared Steak

Sometimes you’ve got to have a steak. Red meat is best on the grill, but with this up and down weather, we’ve had to resort to other measures. Sear up a sirloin inside and enjoy it with roasted veggies or over a perfect kale salad.

recipe: indoor seared steak

What You Need

  • 4 tablespoons ghee
  • 2 tsp each, salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • Oven-safe skillet

What To Do

  1. First, remove the steaks from the fridge about 1 hour before cooking. You want them at room temperature when they hit that pan.
