Testimony of the Day
“I just wanted to send my thank yous. I have been following you for a while, have all of your cookbooks and love your recipes. Recently (the last two months), my weight loss stalled. I’ve lost 70 lbs since last year and have another 50 to go.
I was keeping my carbs under 30g but didn’t pay any attention to my protein and fat. 1 1/2 weeks ago, I started tracking everything. 5% carbs, 10% protein and 80 percent fat. Although my fat intake isn’t quite there, I (counter-intuitively) upped my fat dramatically. Lo and behold, I’m losing again! I’ve spent decades overweight, following a 1200 calorie diet, low fat and whole grains. Amazing that now I’m eating almost 2000 calories, low carb/high fat diet, I’m still shedding the weight! Thank you for all of your advice! This has been an amazing transformation of my life!” -Maryann
3 pounds turnips
1 tablespoon macadamia nut oil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil and lightly grease.
Peel the turnips, and cut into French fry-sized sticks, about 1/3 by 4 inches. Place into a large bowl, and toss with the safflower oil to coat. Place the Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, paprika, onion powder in a resealable plastic bag, and shake to mix. Place the oiled turnips into the bag, and shake until evenly coated with the spices. Spread out onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until the outside is crispy, and the inside is tender, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
