Grass Fed Veal Shoulder Clod Roast

I was lucky to have a friend give us this delicious roast. At first I was a bit hesitant as I like to stay away from Veal, but I was reassured that the farm where this came from was trustworthy so I decided to give this a try.

I have never cooked something like this so I went with something as simple as putting it in the crock pot on top of a layer of onions and carrots. Adding a bit of low sodium organic vegetable broth and the spices in the picture below.

Sprinkle enough of each spice to cover the roast. Try adding salt according to taste. Cook on low for 8 hours.

Cole Slaw

Here’s a very simple Cole Slaw recipe that’s mayo free. Feel free to add more ingredients like raisins, chia seed or any other topping you would like. I kept it simple with what I had available at home and it still came out great. Clean and crisp salad for summer time!

Ingredients

1 head of cabbage, shredded thin
1 tart or sweet apple, peeled and julienned
1 carrot, julienned
Half a small red onion, sliced thin
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, to taste
1-2 teaspoons organic raw agave nectar, to taste
1/2 teaspoon dill
A small pinch of cumin
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Method

Toss the shredded cabbage, apple, carrot, onion into a large bowl and stir to mix. Drizzle with the olive oil- enough to coat, but not too much.

Sprinkle with vinegar, agave nectar, dill, cumin, sea salt and pepper, to taste. Toss to coat.

Test it and add any ingredient according to taste.

Chocolate Protein Mug Cake

Here’s another mug cake recipe that turned out great. This one is perfect for a night-time snack before going to bed because it’s made with casein protein or a mixed protein like the one I use here. I use this 12 hour release chocolate protein for this recipe…

1 scoop of chocolate casein protein powder (casein protein makes the texture for this cake. Using another kind of protein powder may not work.)

1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 cup almond milk
