Quick and Easy Beef Stew Recipe

Recipes

During the winter months (meaning November, December, and January here in Seattle) I get in the mood to slow cook yummy dishes that I dote over lovingly – dishes that bring me through the long winter nights.

But once February rolls around, and the daffodils bloom, and the days are noticeably longer (and warmer), the sunlight calls me to come outside to play. My fading interest in slow cooking is a sure sign that springtime is arriving.

So now that I’m into quick and easy, I wanted to share with you the quickest, easiest beef and root vegetable stew. Ever.

Choose wild Alaskan salmon, along with it being high in healthy omega-3 fatty oils, it is sustainably harvested and has low levels of mercury and other toxins. Canned wild Alaskan salmon is a less expensive alternative and works well for this recipe.

Sprouted legumes have a stunning amount of nutrients compared to their dried/cooked counterparts. By some estimates thiamin levels increase 5-fold, niacin doubles, vitamin E and caratene levels increase, and there is more vitamin C than in a tomato. Enzymes become activated making proteins and starches more digestible and, therefore, less gas-producing (always a good thing).

A recipe for adding fish to your diet: Tiliapia - a great choice!

Fish is an excellent source of high quality, easily digestible protein. Some, but not all, fish are high in omega-3 essential oil - like salmon or sardines. Adding fish to your family’s diet is a healthy choice…if you make the right choice. There are many issues to consider when choosing which fish to consume, including:
