Marinade adapted for this recipe from RecipeZaar. You can choose either lamb chops from the USA or New Zealand. The ones from New Zealand are a bit smaller, but more gamey. This recipe was written using ones from the US. You can use a grill pan on the cook top if not using an outdoor barbecue.

Serves 4

12 lamb loin chops, 1/2-3/4 inch/1.5-1.9cm thick
1 teaspoon/5ml sea salt
4-5 cloves black garlic
2 cups/500ml full body red wine (we used a cabernet)

1/4 cup/60ml red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons/30ml chopped fresh rosemary
1tablespoon/15ml chopped fresh thyme

1 teaspoon/5ml minced fresh garlic
2 tablespoons/30ml olive oil
fresh ground black pepper to taste

Have your butcher trim most of the visible fat and "French" the lamb chops. Make a paste of the black garlic and sea salt. Rub the paste on the chops.

Combine marinade ingredients. Place lamb chops inside a resealable bag large enough to hold all of the chops, pour marinade in, and marinate 1-4 hours in the refrigerator. (I marinated mine about one hour, which was fine.)

Preheat grill to high heat. (You can only hold your hand there for 1-2 seconds at that heat.) Grill lamb chops about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the lamb chops and how hot your grill is, but I cooked mine for 5-6 minutes total cooking time and they were perfectly medium rare. Season with sea salt to taste and serve hot.

While chops are cooking pour the marinade and wine into a sauce pan on medium high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 3-4 minutes or the mixture is syrupy. You can add a slurry of corn starch and wine to thicken slightly. If using a grill pan you can take the chops out, cover with foil on a plate and pour everything into the grill pan. Strain the sauce. Pour over the chops.

Serve with Paris Mash for a decadent meal.

The Insulin Resistance Diet Protocol

NORMAN SCHMIDT DIABETES Insulin is a major issue for many individuals. While insulin is a natural part of a healthy system, when the body isn’t working perfectly then insulin can become a problem that results in pre-diabetes, diabetes, and weight loss, among many other issues. The rate of diabetes could easily become an epidemic that overwhelms the medical industry, especially as some numbers predict the rate of cases doubling from 190 million to 380 million over the next two and a half decades [1]. The good news is that in most cases insulin production in the body, and the body’s ability to properly handle it, is most often a dietary issue. This means that a proper eating plan that is carefully followed can be enough for most people to overcome their insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a warning flag for diabetes and can make weight loss extremely difficult even for individuals who shouldn’t have a problem dropping pounds. This is where  the Insulin Resistance Die

16 Best Benefits Of Corn (Bhutta) For Skin, Hair And Health

Corn, also known as maize or our good old ( Bhutta/Makkai/Challi ) in Hindi, ‘ Mokka Jonnalu ‘ in Telugu, ‘ Makkacholam ‘ in Tamil, ‘ Cholam ‘ in Malayalam, ‘ Musukina Jol a’ in Kannada, ‘ Makkai ‘ in Gujarati, ‘ Makai ‘ in Marathi and Punjabi and ‘ Butta ‘ in Bengali. Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also. The white and yellow hybrids are known as butter and sugar corn which contain both kinds of kernels. This cereal is known for its pleasant taste and its versatility.
