Who doesn’t love a simple entree? Something you can throw together real quick and forget about while you make the side dishes. Something that only requires a few minutes of your attention while its cooking and won’t require a whole lot of clean-up afterwards. That’s definitely my favorite kind of recipe! Steaks are an obvious choice when you’re looking for something quick and easy for your protein (although most types of fish are equally low-maintenance, steaks tend to be more affordable). I usually coat mine in garlic and salt (a la my Garlic Steak with Lemon-Pepper Asparagus) and fry them up in a pan, but I recently came into a nice big harvest of rosemary and have been putting it in just about everything. When looking for a flavor to pair with it for these Balsamic-Rosemary Steaks, I vacillated between balsamic vinegar and lemon and think you could use either one in these if you aren’t a fan of balsamic vinegar (gasp!). Just swap the vinegar for an equal amount of lemon juice and you’re good to go!
Struggling with thyroid disease?
Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? by functional medicine practitioner Datis Kharrazian is single-handedly responsible for my improved health over the past few years. It introduced me to the connection between autoimmune disease and lifestyle factors like diet at a time when my doctors were telling me there was nothing wrong with my thyroid even though I had high antibodies. This book gave me the information I needed to get the right tests ordered and seek proper treatment. It’s a must-have guide for anyone who has already been diagnosed with thyroid disease, who is at risk due to family history, or who strongly suspects they may have it but isn’t sure where to start. I can’t recommend it enough!
