Turkey Stew, Quick and Dirty

imageHere’s my turkey stew recipe — fast, easy, four ingredients, and slow carb (I don’t think the 2 grams of carbs per serving you’re getting from the cornstarch are gonna kill ya).

It turned out kinda thick, so maybe it’s hash. What the hell is hash anyway?  I’m too lazy to go to wikipedia.  Screw it, we’ll just call it stew.

Quick and Dirty Turkey Stew

4 cups diced turkey (free range if possible)*
2 cups sliced carrots
2 cups green peas (1 can if you’re lazy)
2 cups chicken stock or bouillon
1 tbsp. corn starch
2 tpsp. water

Cook carrots and peas. Add to turkey in a large saucepan.  Put cornstarch in a small bowl and add cold water by drops, stirring constantly, until you have a non-lumpy slurry.  Put stock in a small saucepan over med/hi heat. Add cornstarch slurry, drop by drop, stirring constantly.  Heat to boiling and keep stirring. When you have gravy, pour it over the meat and veggies in the large saucepan. Stir well, add salt and pepper to taste, and heat on low.  Serves 4.

* You can substitute free range chicken — much easier to get and cheaper too.

Very Veggie Breakfast Shake

wpid-IMG_20130811_074033.jpgHere’s another breakfast and/or recovery shake that’s 4HB/Slow Carb Diet compliant (as far as the ingredients go anyway — on 4HB drinking calories isn’t encouraged).

You’re going to say this sounds disgusting.  But if you like tomato-based veggie juices you’ll like this one.  I promise!

In your blender or Magic Bullet, put the following and blend until the spinach liquifies and the mix is smooth:

  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 cup Knudsen Organic Very Veggie Juice
  • 2 cups raw organic spinach
  • 2 raw eggs (wash your eggs with soap and water first)
  • a dash of hot sauce (if desired)
