“All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.”
I’m sure I come off as some kind of shill for The Fresh Market, but damn if they don’t make good eating so very, very easy. This is a meal we had a few nights ago. What you see at the 11 o’clock position is “Black and Bleu” (black pepper crusted, bleu cheese stuffed) sirloin. Sitting at the 1 o’clock position is pistachio crusted flounder. Steamed and buttered broccoli there at 5 o’clock and then, at 7 o’clock, we have lobster stuffed tilapia.
The meats come from The Fresh Market fully prepped, and only require minimal cooking skills (yeah, yeah – even a caveman can do it). The sirloins – Meesus TTP opted for the crab-stuffed version – were placed on a bacon-greased comal and placed under the oven broiler (high setting) for a couple of minutes each side. The flounder was pan seared in coconut oil, and the stuffed tilapia set in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes, then was topped-off under the high-set broiler for a couple of minutes.
To round out the meal, we had a smattering of strawberries, blackberries, pineapple and kiwi. To drink, a good bit of Bogle Vineyards Phantom.
So, you can eat like this, amplify your health and well-being in the process and all-the-while shed fat.
You can count calories (‘cause it’s all about calories in, calories out, right?!), weigh and measure hunks of skinless chicken breast, obsess with meal timing, log every tasteless morsel put in your mouth and contemplate your wrecked health, lack of progress, emerging suicidal tendencies and general lethargy over a nice rice cake “desert”.
