I was skeptical that cauliflower could turn into Alfredo but indeed it can. What a versatile veggie (flower technically)! I added more parmesan and poured over chicken.
Delicious! Eat in one sitting as it doesn't keep well. Check out this blogger's other recipes for foods as well as cleaning and body care products.
This is crazy simple and perfect for a party or for making ahead and freezing. Mexican food is the perfect base for veggies. Add lettuce, cabbage, jicama, tomatoes, cilantro, onions, salsa, etc.
This is one of my favorite web sites for recipes. It is similar to Test Kitchen in that they test their recipes before publishing. I have yet to have a recipe I dislike from this site. I recommend this recipe as a make-ahead breakfast or a weekend brunch. Try chicken sausage from Sprouts. They grind and spice chicken in house. There are no questionable additives or MSG.
Kale haters, give this recipe a chance! The trick with kale is to massage it long enough to break down the cellulose (2+ minutes). This makes it easier to chew and the flavor more mild. This is one of my favorite recipes. I suggest using half the apples.
I am a huge fan of the health benefits of coconut water (nature's Gatorade), however I don't love the flavor. This smoothie makes it taste delicious and adds protein to boot. When I was pregnant, the electrolytes in this drink kept leg cramps away. I often recommend this to people with restless leg or muscle crams. This can also be used as a post workout recovery drink.
One of my clients introduced me to this and I'm hooked! There is a tremendous amount of mounting research on the benefits of Turmeric. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is always paired with white pepper as a synergist. Studies suggest that this combination of spices are anti-cancer, among its many benefits. I substitute white pepper for black pepper in this recipe.
This is a keeper! Make it easier by layering the ingredients in a pan instead of trying to fit them all back in the squash shell.
Almond milk is cheap and easy to make at home. Here is a basic recipe. I use almonds but have also had great luck with cashews. I like to sweeten with date paste (see above).
High fiber, nutrient-dense and cheesy. I always make a double batch to use the whole head of cauliflower and pack leftover for weekday lunches.
This is an elegant, decadent and surprisingly simple soup. If you don't want to use half-and-half, you can use milk.
I highly recommend an inversion blender to blend soups with less mess. Also, an enamel coated cast-iron skillet is worth the investment! It will last forever and perfectly cooks soups and caramelizes onions.
Had this salad at a potluck at Straightline Fitness studio potluck and have made it every night since! It's so simple and flavorful! Detoxifying and delicious. I double the veggies and cut everything by hand because I don't have cool tools like a food processor.
My patients always ask me how to prepare and eat vegetables. If you aren't used to eating veggies, a simple place to start is roasting them - which softens the texture and flavor. Be sure to substitute olive oil (or avocado oil, coconut oil, butter, ghee, leftover tallow) for vegetable oil in this recipe.
This actually tastes like eating pizza! If hummus isn't your favorite, give this one a try. I add Italian Seasoning to taste. Great veggie dip for Super Bowl parties and such.
