Turkey filet with steamed kohlrabi and yellow baby carrots | Friend That Cooks blog

Turkey tenderloin filet
Turkey tenderloin filet
Here’s one of the healthy meals I made for a single meal prep customer in the Kansas City area. He eats from the Paleo diet. This particular customer is looking for another individual or two to share our service with. We do the meal preparation at his house and you would just have to reimburse him for half the cost of the groceries and service. His current grocery bill is around $50 per week and service is around $100 per week. Adding another person to the service would likely add only around $50 per week to the total cost. That’s around $100 each.

This is a pan seared bacon wrapped turkey tenderloin filet that is pan seared in a little canola oil and served with steamed brussel sprouts, and steamed kohlrabi with baby yellow carrots.

Dietitians choose "mindful eating" over calorie counting for some patients – Winston-Salem Journal

An article from the Winston-Salem Journal discusses a dietitians view on how “mindful eating”, as opposed to calorie counting can help in nutrition and weight loss. This is a concept that we at Friend that Cooks strongly embrace. We focus on incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables and meats into our dishes, and package portions based on realistic appetites rather than using restaurant portions. Its also very important to eat foods that taste great and are interesting. If you are focused more on the interesting taste of the food, you are less inclined to need to overeat.
