As some of you Just Stoppers might remember, I have been lucky enough to be a guest in nutrition rockstar Lisa Goldberg’s recent weight loss summits not once, but twice. I love Lisa’s total approach to wellness, which not only includes getting to a healthy weight, but also enjoying life and learning to love and appreciate yourself in the process. And because we’ve had such a good time working together and sharing ideas, Lisa has graciously asked me to participate in her upcoming 6 month online group weight loss program (for the body, mind and soul).

Are you ready to give yourself what you need to change how you eat, why you eat and re-wire your brain around food so you can lose your excess weight once and for all? Are you ready to make self-care a priority? Are you ready to be your best self? Would you love to learn how to lose weight and transform your life with the support of a community of people who share your goals and dreams?

Enrollment is open now for program, which begins this June! Any Just Stopper who wants to find out more information (without any obligation), can click here to schedule a free 30-minute Discovery Session with Lisa herself to find out more about the upcoming 6 month online group weight loss program.

During your 6 month transformation participlants will :
  • Learn to understand the reasons why you eat. Understanding is the first step to changing the behavior. It has nothing to do with willpower.
  • Learn to identify your emotions and your food triggers.
  • Learn how to take control of your impulses to eat
  • Learn how to quiet that self-sabotaging voice in your head.
  • Learn how to practice self-care & find self love
  • Free yourself from Yo-Yo dieting for good!
  • Feel less stressed!
  • Have more energy!
  • Feel more confident!
  • Feel happier with your self and in your life!

Looking to cook up some mouth watering, diet friendly steaks that are as healthy as they are delicious? Well, look no further – because I’m going to share my tried and true recipe for creating delicious steaks that are sure to please any dieter as well as any dinner guest (whether the guest is on a diet or not).

I usually fix these steaks on Sunday nights as a special weekend treat. And the best part is, when having guests over, I don’t have to do anything different to “dress up” (read: add flavor to) their steaks. Easy. Fast. Delicious. No outdoor grill necessary. Just a broiler and a few spices. And the best part? Steaks prepared this way won’t wreck your diet!

First things first: Look for steaks that are red, juicy and fresh (always check the expiration date and never purchase steaks that are about to “expire” or look dull in color or that are even starting to “grey”). The steaks should also have “fat veins” running through the meat as well as some fat around the edges. We won’t be using any additional butter or oil with this recipe, so the fat in the steak helps with the flavor (making the steaks virtually self-basting while broiling and extremely juicy and tender for eating).

And no, this naturally occurring fat won’t harm your healthy eating plan when eaten in moderation. (It’s all about balance, remember?)

I usually prefer big, thick Rib-eye steaks. And the cuts of meat I prefer are large. But as you’ll read later, each of the steaks I buy serve up more than one serving, which makes for convenient “left over” meals during the week.

Steak à la Gregg

2 – 4 Rib-eye Steaks (depending on number of guests – can always make 1 steak, too)

Granulated Garlic

Fresh Ground Pepper

Directions

•   Preheat Broiler to Highest Setting

•   Line Shallow, Broiler-Safe Baking Pan with Nonstick Aluminum Foil

•   Place steaks on foil (in pan)

•   Cover each steak generously with Granulated Garlic and Fresh Ground Pepper

•   Broil for 10 – 17 minutes, depending on thickness of meat

•   Remove pan from broiler, turn steaks over, re-sprinkle with Garlic and Pepper (being careful of the sometimes bubbling liquefied fat)

•   Broil for 5 – 7 minutes more (depending on desired cooking temperature)

•   Remove from Broiler (again, being careful of the sometimes bubbling liquefied fat)

•   Carefully remove steak from broiling pan, place on doubled paper towel (on plate)

•   Put another doubled-paper towel on other side, then “press” steak (which is now between the paper towels) with spatula (this soaks up most of the “fat juice” from the steaks, but still leaves the steak moist with a little bit running liquid)

•   Remove paper towels, turn steak over (so the first side cooked faces up for “best presentation” purposes)

•   Add side salad (recipe for salad shown will be shared next week)

•   Serve immediately

Additional Tip: As always, you want to keep portion control in mind. I usually eat about half of my steak and save the rest for an easy midweek meal (chopping up the remaining portion in a salad or simply warming it up and serving with steamed vegetables and freshly chopped cherry or grape tomatoes). If you think you might overdo it (eat too much!), then cut your steak portion in half before serving.

Also, because I know I will be reheating the saved portion of the steak later in the week, I usually undercook my steak a little, and avoid eating that part of it during the first serving.

Please let me know how you like this recipe! Or better yet? Invite me over!

Happy Steak-ing!
