CHICKEN VEGETABLE MELT





CHICKEN VEGETABLE MELT

Lovely!  I used this as a side dish actually, but it can definitely be a main dish as well.  The addition of avocado was awesome!  Avocado is higher in potassium than bananas, did you know that?  If you take zinc regularly (men often do), remember that it depletes magnesium, and if magnesium is depleted, potassium gets depleted as well.  Just by increasing magnesium, potassium gets increased.  Sometimes our electrolytes can get out of whack, so it is interesting to note things like this.  Magnesium also helps some people with Tourette's Syndrome.  Depending on the magnesium brand, it can help with regularity.  Magnesium guards against osteoporosis and helps reduce migraines. Hope that helps someone out there!


2 tbsp bacon fat, divided (15 mL)
1 lb sliced mushrooms (0.45 kg)
Seasoning salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
1 cup chopped onion (250 mL)
2 large red bell peppers, chopped
  (or use whatever you have on hand)
2 to 3 cups cooked, diced chicken (I use a rotisserie chicken)  (500 -750 mL)
1 avocado, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 cup grated Monterey Jack, OR Mozzarella cheese (250 mL)
  (or any other cheese that you like!)

In large, nonstick frying pan, over medium heat in 1 tbsp (15 mL) bacon fat, cook mushrooms until turning brown.  Sprinkle with seasoning salt and black pepper to taste.  Set aside.

In same frying pan, over medium heat in 1 tbsp (15 mL) bacon fat, cook onion until turning soft.  Add bell peppers and cook until softening.  Add mushrooms, chicken and stir fry to heat through.  Add avocado, toss, adjust seasonings, sprinkle with cheese, lower heat, and put lid on pan for a while to melt it.  Serve.

This cookbook below is a collaborative effort between low-carbing friends and thus the name, "Low-Carbing Among Friends".  Those were giddy days as we were a big fish in a small pond and now it is just the other way around. Nowadays we are competing against thousands of low-carb cookbooks and many Kindle cookbooks are being given away for free.  However, I believe in our cookbooks and I love using them myself, and I hope others, too, will still get to enjoy them for many years to come!  This is a beautiful collection of cookbooks, but I think the Anniversary Edition is the last cookbook I will write.  All good things come to an end, as they say.  It has been a fun ride and I have loved serving the low-carb community in this way.  I will still continue with my blog and Facebook for a number of years into the future.  I hope you will join us on this continued journey.  It is my preferred way of eating, even although I can have occasional splurges in maintenance, I still return to low-carbing and usually have between 50 and 100 grams of a carbs a day.

This is a very large cookbook with 296 pages.  If you even buy 1 cookbook, I would recommend one like this because you have a huge variety to choose from and from different authors as well.  The book has been through 3 Editions (revisions).  The recipes are sorted by category with each author contributing recipes.  The recipes range from very low-carb (below 5 grams of carbs) to below 10 grams of carbs per serving. and it is safe to say most recipes are below 5 grams of carbs per serving.  The recipes are also all gluten-free.

Many glossy color pages of photos (of which the greatest number of photos are in the Anniversary Edition; volume 11) are in the center of the cookbooks to inspire you to cook or bake something delicious for your family.

Several glossy color pages of photos are in the center of the cookbook to inspire you to cook or bake something delicious for your family.  For photos you can look at right now, go to amongfriends.us and look under Recipes for the photos inside each cookbook.  The Addendum category with the Indices is out-of-date.  The Index of the 3rd edition is much easier to navigate than what we originally had in the first edition of this cookbook which came out November 11th, 2011.  The 3rd edition (revised) came out in November, 2015.

The Introduction is by George Stella and there is a comprehensive Helpful Hints section with useful measurements' guide for liquid sweeteners such as sucralose and stevia.  Even I refer back to this guide from time to time.  Super useful to have in the kitchen in your LCAF's low-carb cookbook!  Several doctors wrote articles for this cookbook: The Diet Doctor (Andres Eenfeldt), Dr. Parker, Dr. Robert Su and Dr. John Briffa.

The Index is very comprehensive; by category and by alphabet.  It is fairly easy to navigate as if you are looking for a baked item, for instance, you would peruse the Breads, Muffins and More category.  The sub-categories will further help you to quickly find the recipe you desire.

Also, in this cookbook are featured several great recipes from our low-carb friends.
