Almond Beef Bites


2012/03/29 by nikkiledford

Inspired by a work recipe, I decided to try my hand at some nut covered meat snacks… sounds appetizing, right?

Well, they are. They’re called Almond Beef Bites and they are an AMAZING on-the-go snack, SOOPer easy to make, and quite tasty.

Don’t be freaked out by the ingredients. Mayo and almond?! Sounds wierd, I know. But the mayonnaise is a great way to keep the meat moist.  If you want to be more advanced with your culinary skills, make your own mayonnaise like I did! It’s much healthier and WAY more delicious. You can also substitute chicken for beef and even coconut shreds for the almond for all the nut-allergy folk.

Almond Beef Bites

1 lb. Grass-fed beef  stew meat (easy because it already comes in chunks, you can also cut up your own chunks if you want.)
1 c. mayonnaise (my recipe)
1/4 c. spicy mustard
2 c. almond meal (from trader joes)
2 Tbsp. diced scallions
1 Tsp. salt and pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder

  1. In a bowl, mix together spicy mustard and mayonnaise.

    The Dip

  2. In another bowl, mix together almond meal, garlic, scallions, salt, and pepper.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  4. Take beef pieces and dip them into the mayonnaise mix to coat, then dredge in the almond mix to coat.

  5. Place all the coated pieces on the sheet pan and bake for 20-25 mins.

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
