Weekend Recipe: Grass-Fed Beef Bourguignon With Cauliflower Mash

This recipe is rich with goodness and flavor — and is comfort food at its best. The ingredients are simple: Quality grass-fed beef is married together with vegetables and a few glasses of full-bodied red wine. I’ve used carrot puree to thicken the Bourguignon sauce towards the end of cooking, which is a lovely way of thickening sauces without using refined white flours. Don’t overcook your cauliflower. Make sure to chop the ingredients finely before cooking and keep an eye on the cooking time. Blend it when hot, which will result in a creamy, white mash that tastes wonderful. This recipe is from my cookbook Purely Delicious. WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT IT The lean grass-fed beef is a good source of essential amino acids, vitamin B12 and minerals including iron, zinc and selenium. Red wine is rich in polyphenols, including resveratrol, and moderate amounts have been linked to healthier cholesterol levels and better heart health. Serves 4. INGREDIENTS 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or ghee 1 kg (32 oz) grass-fed beef rump, cut into chunks 1 onion, finely diced 2 carrots, halved and chopped 2 celery stalks, halved and chopped 1 leek, washed and sliced thickly 8 shallots, peeled and halved 4 fresh thyme sprigs 3 bay leaves 500 ml (16 oz) red wine (Merlot is great) 3 cups filtered water 1 teaspoon sea salt

ConclusionThe CRSC and Steno tools evaluated and stratified the CVR of the same population with T1D, with there being divergence of the results. It was found that the CRSC tool classified the majority of the sample as high risk. Due to this result, the eligibility to use statins, which is one of the applications of these tools, showed great differences, with the Steno tool presenting less aggressive provisions regarding the prescription of statins in patients with type 1 DM.

This study aimed to investigate if hyperinsulinemia and/or insulin resistance was correlated with the occurrence of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) in a group of Chinese patients. 258 inpatients were included in the study. According to the postoperative pathology results, all subjects were divided into PTC (n = 153) and control groups (with benign thyroid nodules, n = 105). Body mass index (BMI), fasting glucose, fasting insulin, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), FT4, FT3, thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb), thyroglobulin antibody (TGAb), serum uric acid (UA), ...

Authors: Andrade C Abstract Inflammatory mechanisms have been implicated in many psychiatric disorders, including depression, and anti-inflammatory agents have been suggested as potential treatments. In this context, a systematic review and meta-analysis of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, cytokine inhibitors, glucocorticoids, statins, minocycline, and pioglitazone, all of which are considered to have anti-inflammatory properties, examined the antidepressant benefits of these agents in 36 randomized controlled trials conducted in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) and patients with medical diseases ...

ConclusionDNLA may improve the hepatic abnormal lipid profile of HFD-fed mice via two pathways: (1) enhancing the taurine-conjugated bile acids which are highly hydrophilic and contribute to the excretion of cholesterol; (2) decreasing the CA/CDCA ratio which is positively related to cholesterol absorption.Graphical abstract
