Hi all! Sorry it has been so long, but hopefully you can expect some more posts coming up soon. I have some good, educational ones on the horizon I’m excited to share. Anyway, I hope your new year is going well so far!
So did anyone make a resolution to eat better or feed your family better for this year? Sometimes the hardest part about making healthier habits is feeling like you’re doing it alone. Multiple studies show that one of the biggest things that can help someone succeed in setting new goals is to do it with friends for accountability and support.
A part of what I do – aside from individual nutritional consulting – is to lead group sessions on health and nutrition. Over the years, I’ve delivered talks on getting and staying on a wellness track. I lectured about discerning dietary myth from fact. Taught about what helps our metabolisms be as efficient as possible and how to keep inflammation at bay. My point…Want to learn AND have some fun? Need a girl’s night out? If you and your friends want to pick someone’s house, grab a few healthy apps (OK, and some wine), let’s slate a session to discuss how you and your family can feel better. If you’re interested, shoot me an email with the number attending, and I can send you pricing (and I promise, it can be cheaper than going out to dinner). I’m afraid this only pertains to the local Atlanta area. My email is email@example.com
Okay, on to the food…
Speaking of Atlanta, if you live in Atlanta, have you ever had the fried parmesan cauliflower from Yeah Burger? Oh my goodness it is SO good.
“Crazy Cauliflower” from Yeah Burger
Anyway, Alice and I love their cauliflower so much we thought we would try to recreate it. While we didn’t have a fryer or any parmesan, our new recipe completely exceeded our expectations. Honestly, I was going to make two batches. The first one without parmesan and the second with…but you know what? We didn’t need to do it. It just didn’t need the parmesan. The dish already was super tasty and bursting with flavor! Alice said in some ways, it was actually “better than Yeah Burger’s.” I had to literally wrestle with her for this dish. I held both of her arms with one of my hands and had to reach over her to get a bite (we were of course laughing while doing this). I gave Tate a bite while he was doing some screen time and he didn’t respond at first because he so focused on his show. And then he stopped… looked over and said “WOAH, mom. That is AMAZING!!!!”. This recipe is no ordinary roasted cauliflower.
One happy girl…
It’s so easy to make and you can even get your cauliflower pre-cut from Whole Foods or some of the other stores if you would like…
I hope you guys LOVE this as much as we do!
- 1 head cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/2 cup parsley leaves, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Place the cut cauliflower in bowl and add melted coconut oil and salt and stir well.
- Cook for 25 or so minutes flipping about half way though.
- While that is cooking, in the bowl you used earlier, mix together the lemon juice, garlic and olive oil
- For the last 5 minutes, turn the oven on broil 500 to get it get a little more brown if you would like.
- Once the cauliflower is brown and tender, remove it from oven, pour it back into the bowl and stir until the cauliflower is well coated with the lemon, garlic and olive oil.
- Place the cauliflower on a large plate, garnish with parsley and enjoy!
- Even though I used the pre-cut cauliflower, I still cut it a bit more so it would be thinner and have more sides to brown and soak up the lemon, garlic, olive oil mixture.
