Cauliflower, oh how I was so afraid of you for a few weeks. Why? Not so sure! I don't know when the last time I ever had it or if I even have had it before. I had been noticing so many cauliflower recipes lately and told myself it's time to try it. I found a great looking recipe via pinterest for Cauliflower Chicken Nuggets. I basically tell people they are like chicken nuggets, but healthy! Even better they are so filling and low fat. I usually make about 1/4-1/2 a head of cauliflower and that's good enough for a whole meal! I found the recipe over at Chocolate Covered Katie. Have you ever heard of her blog? A new amazing blog! I literally want to make everything on her blog, when did I become so lazy in the pastry department? Oh, yeah after working 10 hours and then lifting weights, and running many miles. That's when I became lazy. Ugh, oh well! Speaking of working out..I know I know I talk so much about it, but it has become part of my life. Anyways, back to the working out thing..can I just say how proud I am I ran 8 miles the other day?! I didn't run very fast, but to me it's the fact that I went that distance. Which makes me even more aware that I know I can run my half marathon..oh speaking of that I keep forgetting to sign up. Mom keeps reminding me..my wonderful memory! Ah, okay back to the Cauliflower Nuggets. I now enjoy cauliflower. This dish is easy to make and I love having it when I don't feel like cooking a huge meal. I'm working on eating a more plant based whole foods diet. I'm doing pretty well. I'm just waiting for my fat to go away!!! I think about how I want to look every day. I'm finally at the point where I want to look really awesome. I'm not the most patient, but I know I'll get there. This time is different. Anyhoo, don't be afraid of cauliflower it's awesome. Literally, all you do is roast/bake the cauliflower in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. You can season it with whatever and broil it for a few minutes. Sometimes I don't even broil it. That's the laziness in me I guess. I then top the cauliflower off with barbeque sauce...wait that's not whole foods, and plant based. Oh, bummer. I'm working on it! The only "bad" part about this dish is the fact that you roast it in the oven. Right now I'm working the veggies into my diet..maybe in a year or so I'll be eating all my veggies raw? Eh, I don't know for now I can say I'm eating a heck of a lot better than ever before. Well, enjoy!
Thank you Katie for giving me confidence to eat cauliflower, I am now addicted!
I had to sneak a picture of Frank in there. ;)
