I have fallen in Love with Cauliflower

thanks to freefoto for image

I used to see cauliflower in my grandma's salads.. and it is a dense and a blah veggie taste..  But it has so much potential..   It has a high potassium content, Potassium is an electrolyte that gives your heart the energy it needs to work.. and that a real good thing!  more nutrition info  So, in a nutshell.. it is good for ya..

This ball of a veggie can be turned into some delicious Faux Mashed Potatoes Super easy to do!
And they are a great creamy texture.

So then when a friend of mine was telling me that she loves to bake Cauliflower in the oven.  I thought
REALLY?!?!   Hmmmm..  lets give this a try..  So I washed a head of cauliflower and cut it up into bits.

I pre-heated the oven to 350 degrees.  I poured some Olive Oil over the cauliflower and sprinkled some garlic salt and what ever herbs that sounds good..  I had a herb blend of, thyme, rosemary, sage and pepper.   and bake in the oven for 20-30 min.   OMG!   YUMMY melt in your mouth! DELISH!

Breakfast... Eggs scrable with mixed veggies

I made this for my hubby for breakfast...  

Egg White and Egg Veggie Scramble 


  • 5 egg Whites 
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 jalapeno..  hubby loves heat :-)
  • 1/2 c. chopped mixed veggies

We had someone give us a jar of maranated veggies.. ( cauliflower, peppers, onions, carrots)
My hubby had put the veggies in the food processor and chopped it all up...  this is what's left.
but I have to add.. this is a great way to add veggies to egg scramble..  YUMMY. 

With eggs.. I wanted a bit more carbs..  so he got a Mango!  OMG   DELISH so tasty and juicy!  Also some almonds for good fats.
This picture looks so good!  I just had to add it :-)
