Instructions to make Mom's Holiday Brisket:
  1. If you have a whole cut, ask butcher to trim some fat off. If not, trim it yourself. Leave a thin layer for flavor. Wash and dry brisket. Sprinkle pepper, garlic, onion powder and thyme over both sides of brisket. Put small amount of olive oil in bottom of roaster. If necessary, slice brisket in half to fit. Note: after its done, brisket will have shrunk about 1/5-1/4, so judge whether you need to cut it. Turn burners on stove onto medium, and place roaster on burners. Brown brisket on both sides. If your roaster isn't flame-proof, brown it in something that is.
  2. Place sliced onions on bottom of roaster, and place brisket on top of it. Sprinkle carrots and mushrooms (if using) under, and around brisket. Sprinkle onion soup mix over meat. Pour red wine over all. Spoon tomato paste around brisket, and mix with wine as best you can. Add remaining ingredients around meat. Take sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil, and seal tightly all around. Place in 350°F oven for 90 minutes, and take out, open and flip. Check liquid level. If it seems to be drying out, or at some time in oven smells like it is (burning smell), add more Warner or beef broth.
  3. After first 90 minutes, flip and bake for another 90 minutes. Take out of oven after 3 hours, and cool for 10 minutes or so. Take out of pan and place on cutting board with runnels to catch the liquid. Brisket now needs to be sliced across the grain. If you have doubts as to where this is, ask butcher when you first purchase it. Slice meat thinly, and place each on plate. When done. Slide. Slicers into liquid and recover with foil tightly. Bake for 1 hour more.
  4. It is best to make this the day before, and refrigerate overnight. You can lift off any fat very easily. I always slice, then refrigerate overnight, and finish the the last hour of cooking tome on the day I want to serve it. Delicious, even when it falls apart. I even freeze any leftover gravy to use later. Serves approximately 10-12, especially if you have a 5lb.brisket. Takes 4 hours in total

You can make similar changes with the oils that you use for cooking. Olive oil has monounsaturated fat which can help to reduce bad cholesterol. Olive oil is also a great source of Vitamin E which has numerous benefits and is also good for your skin. If you currently are consuming lots of fresh fruits and leafy greens, you may want to think about where you’re getting them and if it’s the best source. Organic foods are a superb option and will reduce any possible exposure to toxic chemical substances. You can be certain that you’re getting the most nutritional benefits from your fresh produce if you can locate a local supplier because you will be able to purchase the fruit when it is the freshest and ripest. All in all, it is not hard to begin to make healthy eating a part of your daily lifestyle.
