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, 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.

This week was the first time I created a recipe primarily by which nutrients it contains. The Winter Veggie Casserole is a testament to what food can be. It is attached below, give it a look. You can view the full analysis and heating instructions for all of the other 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. 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)

They 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 warm!

Verlasso Chilean Salmon with balsamic Brussels Sprouts and Winter Squash – To ensure quality, this salmon is seared, but NOT fully cooked. Remove lid and bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes. Salmon is cooked to mid-rare, cooking times vary on your preferred temp. 15 minutes = medium 20 minutes = mid well

Dijon Chicken w/Garlic Sauteed Kale & Sun Dried Tomatoes – To ensure quality, this chicken is seared, but NOT fully cooked. Please observe heating instructions. Remove lid and bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes. Thickness of filets varies. Check with food thermometer and confirm 165 degree internal temp of chicken, or cut into it and observe a solid white color.

Asparagus Pea Mushroom Risotto (V) – Reheat in an oven set at 350 for 20 minutes, or place contents into a saucepan and heat over medium heat for 8 minutes, stirring frequently, or place contents into a microwave safe container and heat on REHEAT setting for around 4-5 minutes.

Fancy Tuna or Vegan Tofu Salad Stack –Enjoy as is

Butternut Squash/Coconut/Lime Soup and/or Amish Chicken or Quinoa Tortilla Soup (20 oz, enough for two) –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.

Winter Veggie Casserole –Bake with lid on for 15 minutes at 350, then remove lid and bake for 5 more minutes to brown cheese (optional).

Spinach Walnut Pomegranate Salad – Well, you know… Give the dressing a good shake before pouring.

Pesto Pasta Salad – This one can be enjoyed cold or hot. TO heat, remove lid and side of pesto and simply warm the dish in the oven, in a saucepan, or in the microwave (in a microwave safe container of course). Add the pesto AFTER cooking as to preserve the health benefits of the pesto.

Apple FlaxJacks – Fully cooked, simply heat and serve via skillet or oven.

Broccoli-Caramelized Onion Omelet – Pour contents into a skillet and cook on low heat, flipping after 4-5 minutes. OR for faster cooking, cook on medium heat and stir frequently, until =desired consistency is reached.

Swiss Chard and Ricotta Pie with Sausage Crust – Reheat in the oven for 10 minutes at 350. Thanks to Busch’s Country Corner for the custom made, low-sodium, extra lean Amish turkey sausage.

Breakfast Burritos – Heat in oven with wrapper at 400 for 15 minutes, or microwave on reheat setting for 1-2 minutes.

Kid’s Classic Sketti – Everything is fully cooked. Simply pour contents into a saucepan with a dash of water and heat lightly. May also be microwaved on reheat (in a microwave safe container).

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

Kids Amish Chicken Nuggets – I realized after I made these guys that I accidentally omitted the salt, so they may need a sprinkle or two. You can bake them at 400 for 10 minutes. Also very freezer friendly.
