Default Pickled Eggs

These are so good. I use them on a salad or just as my protein for the day. You can use this brine for vegetables (asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower) also:

PICKLED EGGS
3 dozen boiled eggs, peeled 5 bay leaves
1 qt. vinegar 3 Tbsp. salt
1 cup cold water 1 Tbsp. garlic pepper
1 jar hot chili peppers

Peel the boiled eggs and then put all of the ingredients together in a large glass jar and refrigerate for 3-4 weeks until pickled to your taste.

Default Baked Tilpaia w/ Garlic and Olive Oil

Ingredients
  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets tilapia
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Directions
Rub the fish fillets with the crushed garlic, then place them in a shallow, non-reactive dish. Spoon the olive oil over the fish until they are coated. Place the onion on top of the fish. Cover the fish and refrigerate overnight to allow the fish to soak in the marinade.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
If baking the fish, transfer it to a 9x13 inch baking dish along with the olive oil, garlic, and onion. Sprinkle the fish with the cayenne or white pepper. If you are grilling the fish, wrap the fish and oil, garlic, onion, and pepper in aluminum foil.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees F) for 30 minutes.

Default Cajun-style Halibut

Ingredients:
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • ***Cajun spice blend:***
  • 4 tablespoons Spanish paprika
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • ***fish:***
  • 4 Alaskan halibut fillets (8 ounces each)
Directions:

Clean grill with wire brush to get it as smooth as possible. Heat grill, using mesquite charcoal. When heated, wipe grill surface with a towel lightly saturated with soy oil. Repeat this process two or three times before cooking the fish, always remembering to wipe with oil immediately before placing the fish on the hot grill. (This prevents sticking.)

To make spice mix: Mix all spice mix ingredients in a bowl. You will end up with 2 cups of spice mix but you will need only 1 cup for this recipe. Tightly cover the remaining spice mix and use another time.

Put 1 cup spice mix on plate and dredge one side of each fillet. Place halibut fillet on hot, oiled grill, seasoned side down. Place the fish at a diagonal on the cooking grill. This reduces the chance of the fish falling through the grill or falling apart when turning the fish over.

Cook first side of fish 3 to 5 minutes or until fish turns from translucent to opaque/white halfway up thickness of fillet.

Use fork and spatula to turn the fish over. Place fork under fish to gently lift it free of grill while you are easing the spatula under the fish. Turn the fish over, then lightly baste with soy oil.

Cook until fish turns from translucent to opaque and white. Be careful not to cook the fish beyond the point of doneness; otherwise, it will dry it out and become toughened. Remove from grill and serve immediately.

hi there,

I am going to another info seminar on the 16th of November where an IP worker will be providing info and fielding questions. I have a few myself, but for those who are on this diet independently, i would be happy to put some questions forward. Seems like most people are on this diet with assistance through a coach, or their health workers. In our area, it was simply introduced when a local person tried it themselves, liked it, and is now our local outlet to purchase the products. They have offered to be coaches, and are hugely helpful in the motivational department with weekly weighins and measurements etc. I think due to such demand and popularity of this diet, they have requested the IP to come again - i think it is great because i was so skeptical the first session i really did not ask any questions that i now need answers to. Not skeptical anymore! 7th weigh in tomorrow - and feeling positive about it.. have a good day everyone.
