Low Carb Beef Stroganoff
Testimonies of the Day (Yes, they all came the same day!)
MOOD TESTIMONY: “Hi Maria, Thank you for your wonderful advice! I started your plan a couple of months ago and I am so happy with how I am feeling. Mentally and emotionally this is the healthiest I have felt in many, many years! I am off my depression medication and I am sleeping so much better. I feel more motivated and have more energy than I can ever remember having before. I honestly can’t imagine feeling any better than I do right now!”- Carrie
WEIGHT LOSS AND GUT HEALTH: “It’s day 6 and I’ve lost 6! I feel good too! No bloating, sore intestines and great energy! Thanks Maria!” -Nan
AUTISM TESTIMONY: “Hi Maria! My family saw an immediate shift in behavior with a gluten, casein soy, and sugar free diet. I honestly thought that we would have a grieving period over cake pops from Starbucks. In the past we had an upset little girl every time she saw that dang green mermaid. I honestly think yanking the processed sugar out COMPLETELY was way bigger for our child. She is 4 and has an autism diagnosis. It’s mostly speech and language we are dealing with so explaining the changes to her was not gonna help a thing. She’s on a whole new protocol, but this diet was the first step. Very impressed by the removal of sugar. She takes one simple no for an answer now. It’s crazy.”- Heather
CONSTIPATION TESTIMONY: “Maria, it’s amazing – after just one day on the supplements no bleeding or pain during and after #2 for the first time since August! Thank you :)” -April
WEIGHT LOSS AND MIGRAINE TESTIMONY: “I’ve been eating the Maria way for 19 days and feel great. The webinar you taught really helped too. I’ve lost 8lbs and I’m never hungry! Thank you! My husband has migraines 3-4 times a month and hasn’t had one yet this month!” -Stephanie

“HEALTHIFIED” BEEF STROGANOFF
1 pound ground beef, or thinly sliced beef
Butter, for frying
Half a small onion
LOTS OF MUSHROOMS:)
1 tsp tomato paste
1 clove crushed garlic
2 cups beef broth
1/2 cup sour cream
Fry the meat and mushrooms in butter on medium/high heat. Remove from the skillet and sautee onions and garlic till onions are tender. Add tomato paste, then the meat. Pour enough beef broth to almost cover the meat. Simmer on low till meat is tender, about 1 1/2 hour… and about 30 minutes for ground beef. Most of the broth should have evaporated. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste. Add in the sour cream and heat through.

Cabbage: Contains vitamin C and folic acid. Cabbage protects against stress, infection and heart disease, as well as many types of cancers, according to the American Association for Cancer Research. To avoid gas after eating cabbage, add a few fennel, caraway or cumin seeds before cooking. Cabbage is also a good source of blood-sugar-stabilizing fiber, and the raw juice of cabbage is a known cure for stomach ulcers.
Plan Plan Plan is the key to success
Recipes like my beef stroganoff and cabbage “pasta” can be found in my cookbook The Art of Healthy Eating Slow Cooker. Cabbage is so cheap and lasts forever, I always keep one in my fridge. Cabbage pasta can be made days ahead of time and stored in an air tight container in the fridge for easy additions to dinner.
One trick that works for our family is that Craig helps clean up after dinner, while I prepare dinner for the next night. I often fill my slow cookers with a main dish, side dish and dessert (yes, I have 3 beloved slow cookers). Then in the morning, all I have to do is take the slow cooker shell out of the fridge and turn them on. That takes so much stress and anxiety out of my day!
