My savior Blue Apron

Steak#2 Cooked v3.jpgFor months, I tried going purely vegetarian both because I did not like the way animals were treated ethically and the added hormones and other chemicals used by commercial meat producers and even produce farms in the US. Beside that doctors always say a meatless diet is healthier.

Sadly, I was having almost constant headaches and did not feel that well in general.  Then there were the ethical problems, hormones, and other chemicals used by commercial farms.

So, I decided to try Blue Apron about five months ago. The produce is fresh and produced without all the chemicals added. The meats and other animal products are not commercially produced with all the hormones and other chemicals added.  It’s taken awhile but now the headaches are going away and I’m feeling both physically and ethically better.

The picture above is my latest effort. It is Seared Steak and Fingerling Potatoes with Charred Onions and Butter Lettuce Salad.  The salad was dressed using a combination of Blue Cheese, Dion Mustard, Crème Fresh, and Verjus Rougeand topped with Chopped Wallnuts.


I like to cook!

I knew I had to begin eating healthy food after my hospital scare in December. Eventually I found Blue Apron. So this is what I made this week:

Pizza Just out of the ovenAsparagus and Arugula Pesto Pizza with Pink Lemon Ricotta.
Not exactly shaped like a Papa John’s Pizza is it.








Inside PizzaIngredients:  Raw Plain Pizza Dough This is the only ingredient I didn’t make from scratch. I formed it from the raw dough though.
Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Garlic
Pink Lemon
Ricotta Cheese
Crushed Red Pepper
Grated Parmesan Cheese

The recipe called for a Bird’s eye chili but that would have been too spicy so I left it out.
PorkGinger Pork Meatballs with Yakiniku Sauce and Green beans
Ground  Pork
Jasmine Rice
Green Beans
Fresh Ginger
Yakiniku sauce
Sesame Oil
Panko Breadcrumbs
Rice Vinegar

The pink garnish are thinly sliced radishes pickled with rice vinegar and sesame oil. The pickling liquid was combined with the Yakiniku sauce to make a sauce for the pork meatballs and green beans.

The produce is all organic and the meats are ethically produced with no hormones. For example some recipes call for an egg. These eggs are produce by non-caged chickens fed all organic feed.

The development that was unexpected is that I enjoy cooking!
