Recipe – Steak with Onions in Marsala Sauce

I have posted a few recipes, but my wife reminded me there aren’t any for a ‘pure protein’ day. Hopefully this will help fill that gap. It is important to note that this recipe will also include butter, you should really minimize the amount of fat you use, to stay healthy.  The butter is an important as a gauge of temperature of your pan, so you should not omit it all-together.

Vanilla Greek Yogurt, sugar-free recipe

When I was checking out the yogurts at the supermarket, all the vanilla flavored brand-names where loaded with sugar. So I experimented and came up with this recipe. If the vanilla beans are two expensive at the grocery store, think about buying them off amazon.com for a fraction of the price, its a good investment.


  • 2 lbs fat-free plain yogurt unsweetened
  • 2/3 cup baking slpenda
  • 1 vanilla bean – optional, but recommended
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Place the the yogurt, splenda, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl. Slice the vanilla bean lengthwise, with the broad side of your knife, scrape the seeds into a pile, place those seeds in the bowl with the rest of your ingredients. Mix well, ensure the seeds don’t have too many clumps. A good mixing will smoothen the yogurt.


For a single serving solution, try 1/8 tsp vanilla extract plus 2 tsp (1-1/2 – 2 packets) splenda into 6-8 oz cup of o% fat, unsweetened, plain greek yogurt, mix and its yummy!
