Good evening everyone. I hope this message finds you warm and well. Below are the heating instructions for anything that needs to be heated. Please note that with all salmon and chicken breast fillet entrees, the meat is NOT fully cooked. I do this because if I fully cooked it, and then you heated it up, it would be chewy and lose a lot of quality. As we are now beginning to individually label each piece, we will also begin to denote where food is raw. Either way, be sure that you at least give the heating instructions a once over so you know what’s going on before you go and pop something in the microwave for 2 minutes. Some things are really not good in the microwave, some do fine. Remember to always use the reheat setting. High power destroys food and nutrients.

We are working on compiling all of the detailed nutritional data as I type.You can view the full analysis and heating instructions for all of the dishes HERE. Add this page to your bookmarks so that you can always pull it up in a flash. They are in alphabetical order under Entree, Soups, Sweets, Juice, and Kid’s Meal categories. Please bear with me as this is a work in prgress, and once all of these analyses are posted, they will always be there. Once you see one, you’ll understand why it takes so much time to compile.

Simply find the name of the dish and click on it to see how much nutrition you are getting. With HealthSavor on hand, who needs a multi-vitamin? (I don’t)

The analyses are still trickling in as I type, so I must be going. I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for trusting my team and I to help you lose weight, control blood sugar, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, and generally feel awesome. It’s why we do what we do!

We hope to see you next week. Until then, stay healthy and enjoy the spring preview this week!

Sincerely,

Chef Brandon and the HealthSavor Team

Veggie and Chicken Tikka Masala – Bake with lid on for 15 minutes at 400. May also be heated in saucepan if you don’t mind mixing rice in. Microwave not recommended with chicken, but would be ok for the tofu version. 3-4 minutes on reheat setting.

Chickpea Tagine – Simply heat by pouring contents into a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes, or pop it in the microwave on REHEAT setting (high setting destroys food) for around 4 minutes.

Amish Chicken or Quinoa Tortilla Soup – Simply heat by pouring contents into a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes, or pop it in the microwave on REHEAT setting (high setting destroys food) for around 4 minutes.

Broccoli-Cheddar Soup – Simply heat by pouring contents into a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes, or pop it in the microwave on REHEAT setting (high setting destroys food) for around 4 minutes.

Portobello Veggie Burger with Toasted Eban’s Bread and fixins with Roasted Veggie Chips – Transfer everything but the burger onto a plate, then remove slices of bread from bag and place in tin with burger. Heat/toast at 350 for 8 minutes, then switch to broil for 5 minutes to crisp. Bread may be toasted in toaster (obviously) instead. Spread on the avocado mayo (yum!) and whichever fixings you like. Veggie burgers freeze well.

Amish Chicken Burgers with Flax-Bread – Remove lid and container of garlic/rosemary chia mayo. Bread can be toasted in container along with chicken breast by removing it from the bag and placing them in single layer in the tin. Proceed to bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Side of soup can be heated in microwave on reheat for 1 minute or even placed on top of chicken burger.

Cincinnati Chili! – (Comes with 1 container of chili + 1 container of pasta) Simply heat by pouring contents into a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes, or pop it in the microwave on REHEAT setting (high setting destroys food) for around 4 minutes.

Savory Stuffed Acorn Squash – Remove lid and bake at 300 for 20 to 25 minutes. May also be reheated in microwave on reheat setting for 4-5 minutes.

Egyptian Edamame Stew – Simply heat by pouring contents into a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for about 4 minutes, or pop it in the microwave on REHEAT setting (high setting destroys food) for around 4 minutes

Cranberry-Orange Scones – You are in for a treat with these guys. I used the recipe I learned at Essencha Tea House and applied what I’ve learned about carb-free baking. May be eaten as is, but also taste great warmed slightly in the oven at 250 for 6-8 minutes.

Florentine Omelet – Simply pour into a skillet and heat to desired consistency.

Pumpkin Pancakes!!! Super simple. Just pop them in a toaster. These pancakes freeze very well. Heidi did an awesome job on these this week!

Kids Pizza – Bake directly on lower oven rack for 8-10 minutes at 350

Kids Amish Chicken Nuggets – You can bake them at 400 for 8 minutes. Also very freezer friendly. If baking from frozen, bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes.

Gluten/Dairy/Refined Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Brownies – We had a special guest help us in the kitchen this week. Her name is Nina, the young baking prodigy of one of my original customers. Since we knew she bakes like a champ, we put her on brownie duty! Thanks, Nina! If you like your brownies warm, just a few minutes at 300 will do.
