QT #4: MAGIC VEGGIE

30 Apr

Here is a great trick to eat healthier & avoid starches.

I am not sure where I saw this, but I cannot take credit for this idea (probably Rachael Ray).

Cauliflower Rice: Leave it raw & throw it in a blender or food processor & blend.  (If you like sushi swap cauliflower out for the rice.)

Cauliflower is also great because it absorbs flavor beautifully, try marinating it.

29 Mar

Road trips often lead to gas station snacking.  It’s hard to find anything close to being healthy in gas stations but there are a few things.  Trail Mix is a great option, I prefer Planters Sweet & Nutty.  Beef jerky is another great option & the best is the local jerky they have up by the cashier because it usually contain no preservatives.  Whatever you get, remember to read the ingredients & look for the most natural ingredients & usually the less ingredients the better.
