Pork tenderloin with cauliflower puree, crudité and melted butter
Ingredients (4 servings):
1 small pork tenderloin approx. 500 g
1 small cauliflower
150 g butter
100 ml water
2 pcs fried bacon (save a few from breakfast)
herbs for decoration (a little thyme)
salt and pepper
Remove tendens from the pork tenderloin for a fine texture. Season with salt and pepper. You can either cook the tenderloin in a pan or in the oven.
Remove a few cauliflower bouquets and cut, together with the radishes, into thin slices. Use a sharp knife or a mandolin cutter. Put the cauliflower and radish slices in iced water, and set aside. This will make them extra crispy.
Cut the rest of the cauliflower into smaller pieces and cook with 100 g of butter and 100 ml water for approx. 10 mins. Pour the liquid into a bowl (to be used again) and blend cauliflower with a stick blender. Add the cooking liquid together with the butter until you have a suitable creamy puree. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Cut asparagus into smaller pieces and steam for a few mins. You can use a sieve over the pot with cauliflower while cooking.
Melt 50 g of butter in a pan and fry until it’s brown and has a taste of nuts. Add the mixture a little lemon juice.
Chop the fried bacon into fine pieces.
Arrange the puree on a plate and decorate with the vegetables and herbs. Place a few pieces of sirloin next to it and pour the melted butter over the meat. Sprinkle the dish with bacon.
I am honored to get to know this wonderful young man. His name is Marius and he is 16 years old. He has followed our Back to Basics program for 8 weeks now.
Read about his journey in the Back to Basics program, which is over now, and here we reveal his before and after pictures.
Marius has lost 14 kg kilos in 8 weeks.
It’s so amazing!
I am so proud that me, as a 16-year-old, with school, friends and parties, can commit and go all in, and change my life in a heartbeat.
Marius himself says that this is the easiest thing he has ever done. He eats steaks with bearnaise and vegetables fried in butter, that is absolutely amazing.
Marius’s best friend is also on our 6-week course, and his excess kilos also disappear very quickly. Even more amazing is that they can support each other, even when there are parties and events in school.
“We have made a bet not to drink alcohol for 4 weeks,” says the two young guys and laugh at each other.
Having two very young people on our course has been a breath of fresh air – they’ve added fun and laughter, and we’ve all got a smile on our lips about their approach to things. Whatever I had to say or had to add, or give the guys challenges, they have taken it upright – nothing has been able to beat them. The two of them lived straight by the book when it comes to the food and what else they have been presented to.
Back to Basics is for everyone. Regardless of age, gender and flaws, and whatever goals and dreams you have, the course is easy, fun and shows results in a very short period of time. The best part of all, is that the weight keeps going down, even if the course is over, because here we change our lifestyle, in an easy and durable way. And as Marius says, steak with bearnaise is just the best thing in the world.
When he came to be weighed this week, he told me:
“Patricia, I never felt better – I never go back to where I was and I will continue living this way”.
Meet Kristine with a whopping weight loss of 36 kilos. (80lb)
This is her story about her weight loss journey with the Back to Basics program.
“ I have been overweight for many years, and in the beginning I was a bit skeptical when I heard about Back to Basics. I was used to counting calories, I did lots of hard physical training and bought food with the lowest fat percentage. Drinking heavy cream, eating butter, eating my steak with marbling and food with high fat percentage was the right choice for me.
I went from being constantly hungry to never feeling hungry and always satisfied. No cravings for cake, candy or sweets, because I feel full and satisfied just by eating fat!!
This is the easiest lifestyle change I’ve ever done and I am never going back.
I choose Back to Basics forever!!”
Do you also want to change your lifestyle with Basics to Basics, lose those kilos and keep them off forever?
Hi, my name is Henriette! Here is my story of how I came to live by the Back to Basics principals and how I “live” my life for the first time, and not only survive my life!
I can’t remember, never having stomach aches or struggled with my digestion.
When I was a child, I needed an enema to go to the toilet, And it has always been associated with something painful In 2001 I had my appendix removed, wich bursted during the operation,because I came to late to the hospital. I didn’t think it was appendicitis because of my constant pain in the stomach region.
Already at that time, gastric acid suppressing drugs were part of my everyday life. In 2009 I had my gall bladder removed, I could literally not take anything else but Nupo meal replacements, and I had to drink them very slowly to prevent gallstone attacks.
I had seizures several times a week and ended with the doctor coming regularly and gave me a shot of morphine.
When they removed the gallbladder they bruised my liver, which caused internal bleeding. That caused a blood clot the size of a fist, that took a while to get over.
After that operation I was sure I could eat again, but there where long lists with banned foods, that could cause seizures.
I got more and more acid-suppressing drugs.
I couldn’t vomit and I thought it was normal when you had your gallbladder removed. It might sound weird, but I actually think human beings are supposed to have the ability to vomit.
Five years ago, I was operated for a disc herniation and had my ovaries removed only one month apart. This is when I started binge eating. I was self-employed for many years, but could not work so much now.
I was constantly thinking about food, more specific, chocolate! Every time I finished a meal I thought about my next ”fix”. I tried to turn my life around with all the cures that usually worked when I wanted to lose weight, but nothing ever did! When I complained to others, I was told that I had to learn to live with the way I looked. In March 2018, I got to know Patricia through my cousin, who is living by Back to Basics principals, and had a huge weightloss. Not only that, he felt healthy. That’s when I decided I had to try. I had not given up on me, but the established healthcare system could not help me, they made me feel like a hypochondriac
In march I startede on the basic course of Back to Basics. I thought I was gonna lose weight as fast as my cousin, but no. … I didn’t lose any weight the first couple of weeks. It upset me to experience that my body wasn’t ready to let go of the fat.
But with the support of other participants, mentors and especially Patricia, I began to lose weight very slowly. I learned that the worst thing you can do, is forcing a body in destress to lose weight. Patricia told me to forget the scale for a while, and when I weighed myself a couple of weeks later, I had lost 6 kilos. But the funny part is that the weight loss became less and less important to me after a very short period of time.i wanted to be healthy. That was my main focus!
After the first meeting, I found out that I did NOT have too much stomach acid but virtually nothing!I quit the acid suppressing drugs and startet my new lifestile.
Today it is extremely rare that I feel stomach aches, I can tolerate most foods and do not think much about toilet visits anymore
I can vomit like any other person, which of course sounds strange, but it’s a great thing to be able to, especially when you haven’t had that ability for a long time. I do not know how many kilos I have lost, last time I was on the scale it was 15 kilos. Clothes I only dreamed of wearing, I can now wear
Just before New Year, Ole Clement sent me this picture. He had been diagnosed with diabetes type 2 and felt really bad. He had a blood sugar rate of 29 and some days it was so high that the machine could not even measure it.
He needed help!
Ole started on the Back to Basics program about 13 days ago and what a change. He suddenly sleeps at night without getting up and peeing, he has energy and you literally see his belly shrink a little every day.
Tomorrow, it is 14 days ago since Ole started living Back to Basics, and now his blood sugar has dropped to 6.5.
In just 13 days!
He has lost over 5 kilos and feels absolutely good about himself. His mood is sky high and positive and blood sugar low. He even dropped his medication for diabetes already a few days after start-up as he was afraid of all the side effects the drugs would give him.
Just imagine what can happen for the next 4 weeks
We follow Ole closely and look forward to see his progress.
I’ll probably make an update when we get a little further.
Here is the picture he sent me today!
If Ole can, then you can do it too!
And as Ole himself says, “It’s the easiest ting I’ve ever done – and I’m amazed”
Christine’s body was being mistreated with bad food and medicin! In only 5 weeks she is 9,5 kilos lighter and has reduced her medicine to one third of the dosis! Here is her story..
Hi, my name is Christine and I am 37 years old.
I started with Patricia Højbo and all the wonderful mentors in Back to Basics on 14 / 1-19… Before that, I had abused my body for 16 years, not because I deliberately mistreated it, but because I lived like many others do, I ate too much, especially pasta and rice and other carbohydrates and especially because I took way too much medicine.
My whole body shut down!
As a 21 year old I woke up with a massive pain in my neck, which within 4 months resulted in a locked jaw, severe pain in my back and loins.
I visited several doctors but no one could understand what happened and why.
I was tested and scanned for all sorts of things and everything was just “normal”, but because of the severe pain I have had over the years, I took 3-4 “servings” of painkillers daily, a good mix of paracetamol, arthritis drugs and muscle relaxants to maintain a tolerable everyday life.
In November 2018, I heard about Back to Basics. I then read a lot about it before I started the course on the 14th of january and it is simply the best I have done for me and my body!!!!
9.5 kg and 38 cm disappeared in 5 weeks!
The last year before start-up on Back to Basics, I suffered from painfull cramps in the legs at night, was up about 4 times in the middle of the night to pee and slept poorly.
After 1 week on The cool life got better – and after 3 weeks I slept through at night without cramps and with max 1 pee ..
I have lost 9.5 kg in 5 weeks, thrown 15 cm around my stomach, 14 cm around the buttocks and 8 cm around the chest ..
I have so much energy and the best part of all is that after week 3 I have only taken painkillers max once a day, it is simply fantastic !!!!
At the same time, my body and mind found peace and most importantly, I can feel positive effects in my body, in stead of having daily pain.
I still have a long way to go, but Back to Basics is the only right thing for me and I can’t imagine going back to the bad things that my old lifestyle gave me.
In week 3 + 4, my body cleansed and purified so much, it caused incredibly itchy skin… I trembled inside and felt really bad. Now I understand why, all toxic particles had to get out of my body to get healthy, and one thing is for sure, they are not allowed to come back! I am not going there again ever!
