  • 2 tbsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil (divided)

  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/4 of the oil. Dry the steak well and season with salt and pepper. Place the steak in the pan and cook for about 18 to 20 minutes, flipping once. The timing will depend on how thick your steak is and your desired doneness. Remove, let rest for 10 minutes, and then slice against the grain and set aside.

    Salad is best stored separate from the dressing. Keep in an airtight container for up to three days.
  • Dairy-Free

    Omit the blue cheese or use vegan cheese instead.
  • Additional Toppings

    Add toasted walnuts, pine nuts, pecans, or pumpkin seeds.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever taken to social media to get advice and it felt like the floodgates opened and you were inundated with responses.

Go on, raise your hand, I’m raising mine too. I think we’ve all been there.

Asking questions on social media can be a bit of a double edged sword, though.

I see questions about weight loss so often and although we want there to be black-and-white answer, the truth is, it depends.

In today’s episode of The Live Diet-Free Podcast, I’m giving you four questions to ask yourself to make decisions for yourself based on your individual circumstances and not the loud opinions of people on the internet.
