Detox Day 9 - Bistec encebollado

Today was such a busy day! I am so glad that my shakes take two minutes to make (and drink.) That alone is worth it. =) And I made a big mess with today's dinner, I can't even imagine my kitchen if I had to do the dishes three times a day! My husband said it was definitely one of the top 10. Then again, he has a lot of top 10's. I know he really liked what I cooked when he takes a bite and closes his eyes and doesn't say anything. I am so grateful for him and all the little things he does to show me that he loves me, and our children.  For example, he makes my shakes in the morning.

Chocolate brownie batter shake

Hard boiled egg

Vanilla shake

Arbonne chocolate nutrition bar

This is a little tribute to cuban cuisine that we enjoy so much. I know that mojo (pronounced mo-ho) is a little like the peruvian escabeche sauce, so I gave it a try. Paired it up with baked sweet potato fries and roasted brussel sprouts that my 4-year old can make (cut, salt and pepper, toss around with olive oil and put in oven) Results: licked plate. And my son asked for more brussel sprouts, please.


2 grass fed steaks
1/4 cup of olive oil
3/4 of a sweet onion
3 Tbsp of minced garlic
1 table spoon of ají amarillo
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar (optional)
S&P al gusto

Paso a paso

1) Fry steaks for a few minutes on each side depending on thickness and preference. Let steaks rest. On that same pan add the onions and the garlic and cook for a few minutes until brown. Add ají, water and vinegar. Cook for 10 minutes on low.

2) Add steaks (and juice) back to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes or so.

 3) Serve steak with onions on top. Or on the side. Even on the bottom.

No dessert today since I went to a very inspiring Arbonne meeting, but I did have my detox tea when I got back home. Hasta mañana.
