- SECRET HEADLINE: Women who consume high-protein breakfasts may decrease their risk for diabetes
Do statins lead to gluttony? Study says drugs may empower some to 'put butter on their steak'
The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease
Why Runners Can't Eat Whatever They Want

MaryLou's Faux Scalloped Au Gratin Potatoes
1 Celery root or Celeriac peeled, cleaned and sliced (I use a mandolin and slice the pieces thin and then cut them into smaller pieces)
4 tablespoons of butter (I use Kerrygold unsalted)
1 cup of heavy cream
Garlic powder
1/4 cup Parmesan
1/4 cup Romano
1/4 cup Mozzarella

Put all ingredients, except cheese, in a sauce pan over low to medium heat cover and sauté for 25-30 minutes stirring occasionally until they are the softened. After 20 minutes add cheese and continue cooking over low heat

MaryLou's Collards and Kale

This recipe seems so simple and yet it is never the first thing people think of. It is a great way to get in broth when you are eating a real food nutritional approach. We have this at least 4-6 nights a week it is delicious. When we eat chicken we boil thighs in the broth for 15-20 minutes and then season skin on thigh and broil for 5 minutes or so to crisp (best fried chicken without coating with bad ingredients).

Collard Green
“Better than Bouillon” (I prefer the organic vegetable)

Fill Dutch oven half way with water (the Dutch oven cooks collards faster)

Add bouillon paste to taste (I add a spoon full at a time, mix well and taste the broth and if it is to watered down I will add more paste or if it is to strong I will add more water).

Add Collards and Kale (I use a handful of each and that depends on the size of the pot and the amount of water you added) boil covered for approximately 15 minutes and you are done!
