Seared flank steak, flavored w/ a spicy fish sauce marinade, served with rice and paired with scallion prepared similarly to the Korean banchan-style salad, ‘pa muchim.’ Flank steak is usually a tougher cut, so slice it against (or perpendicular to) the grain, which will make it tender for a quick sear, stir-fry or pan-fry.
1 lb. flank or skirt steak
2 Tbsp soy or fish sauce
1-2 tsp brown sugar
Scant amount garlic powder
1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
Sriracha, couple squirts
2-3 scallions, sliced
1 Tbsp. each rice vinegar + sesame oil
Toasted sesame seeds
1. In a large bowl, stir together the fish sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, 1 Tbsp. sesame oil + sriracha.
2. Cut steak against the grain into ½ inch slices, place into the bowl w/ marinade. Toss to combine + let marinate at room temp for about 15-30 min.
3. Meanwhile, cook your rice and slice your scallions. In a med bowl, toss scallions w/ rice vinegar + sesame oil right before serving.
4. In a hot skillet, heat some neutral oil over med-high heat, remove steak from marinade and cook steak in batches to avoid overcrowding + steaming. Sear steak, undisturbed, until golden brown on the bottom, 2-3 minutes. Careful of any splattering.
5. Flip steak pieces + cook the other side for about 30 sec-1 min.
6. Divide steak between plates, serve with rice. Give the scallion a toss w/ the rice vinegar + sesame oil, top with gochugaru and serve alongside the steak. Sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over everything. Eat immediately.

Avete mai provato le polpette di tonno, patate e olive? Io le preparo schiacciando una patata cotta al vapore e mescolandola a tonno (vengono benissimo anche con merluzzo o nasello, ad esempio), olive taggiasche, sale e spezie. Le impano leggermente nel pan grattato e le inforno a 180’ per 20 minuti, girandole a metà cottura. Davvero semplicissime 😊
Buona #cena !

You can not heal in the same environment that made you sick. Your environment holds the key to optimal health.
For 10,000 years and more, humans have lived outdoors and be one with its environment, Mother Nature.
Love this by my friend @livevitae
The environment we find ourselves in can massively influence our perception, beliefs, our reality and of course our health.
The environment alone connects us with natural healers such as:
Light (full spectrum frequencies even the ones you can not see)
The ground - we have sweat glands on our feet for that very reason to conduct electricity (electrons) from the ground.
And the seasonal and personalised food we should largely consume which is environmentally dependant not from what from supermarkets have on their shelf.
The above factors influences our physiology, MASSIVELY.
Why, because they influence our nervous system, the redox potential (net negative charge of every cell), hormones which communicate throughout the body, our circadian rhythm and metabolism.
It’s no surprise that the most drastic thing which has changed over the last 100 years in human evolution is not just food BUT actually the environment.
Taking medications (masks included) and even supplements to some extent our all band aids.
They do not solve any problems.
It’s like peeing in the wind in the grand scheme of things for optimal health. Which is a choice if your willing to learn, unlearn and relearn.
The more disconnected you find yourself from the primordial healing environment the more you will need band aids and scaffolding to hold up your foundations!
Improve your environment and you will provide the opportunities for your body to heal and thrive.

Here's why I'm not a fan of providing meal plans for my clients. A meal plan doesn't help you when you're traveling, out to dinner, at a party, or much beyond the planned out days and they definitely don't help you listen to your body's hunger and satisfaction cues. I provide meal ideas to clients coupled with education and tools to empower you to make the best decision for you, to understand how food affects you and give you the skills to build meals and snacks that keep you full, energized and nourished.
Your hunger levels and nutrient needs change on a daily basis and it's so important to listen and honor what your body is telling you rather than try to follow a meal plan. Here's an example: This morning I had coconut yogurt, banana and nut butter. A breakfast I have most mornings and usually keeps me perfectly satisfied for hours. Today I was hungry less than an hour after eating it. Instead of pushing through the hunger, I went back for breakfast #2 with some simple avocado toast. I didn't sleep well last night, it's that time of the month, I worked out this morning and a breakfast that usually sustains me, just wasn't enough today and that's okay! Comment below if you can relate and any thoughts on meal plans 🥑 #dietitian#avocadotoast#mindfuleating#listentoyourbody

Build your own taco bar is going down tonight for taco Tuesday 🌮🥭🥑💃🏽. This one of the easiest dinners to make during the busy work week, especially when everything is already meal prepped ahead of time.

1-3 mangos chopped
1/3 cup red onion chopped
4 Limes juiced

1 small red bell pepper chopped
Mix and store in fridge
Thirst Quenching Basic Summer Cooler- Chilled Watermelon Juice with dash of lemon. Watermelon was too sweet, so no sweetener added. It's a healthy refreshing drink. My place is getting real hot. 😰 Cooking has been very limited nowadays. I'm freezing myself from the inside out with cool drink and ice creams.🍨🍹 Other side of the world, which season are you in?
It's been a rough week, I fell by miss and hurt my lower back. Pain is subsiding, I'm feeling better now. #onapositivenote Just wanted to say ~ Be kind and compassionate to one another.💕 Everyone is fighting some kind of battle. It's not always perfect as you see. Behind many happy faces there is hidden pain. Staysafe and healthy!
