Recipes, Recipes

Be sure to check out the link on my blog - Meal of the Day - as it has some truly terrific recipes! It has a new one each and every day. Their recipes are always healthy - made with real food, nothing processed.

Here are a couple I came across that I thought I would share. Quick, easy (that's the only kind of cooking I can do) and it's healthy.


1 head cauliflower or 1 head equal amount of pre-cut commercially prepped cauliflower
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt, to taste

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Trim the head of cauliflower, discarding the core and thick stems; cut florets into pieces about the size of your thumb.
In a large bowl, combine the olive oil and salt, whisk, then add the cauliflower pieces and toss thoroughly.
Line a baking sheet with parchment for easy cleanup (you can skip that, if you don't have any) then spread the cauliflower pieces on the sheet and roast for 1 hour, turning 3 or 4 times, until most of each piece has turned golden brown.
(The browner the cauliflower pieces turn, the more caramelization occurs and the sweeter they'll taste. I let mine look like they were almost burnt so they were nice and crunchy).
Serve immediately and enjoy!


1 cup sunflower seeds (I soak them in water first for a couple of hours to make them softer for the blending)
2 freshly squeezed lemons
1/2 zucchini
1/2 red pepper
salt and pepper to taste

other: add garlic, onion, scallion, chives or basil depending on your taste buds

put seeds and lemon juice into blender first
slowly add in zucchini and red pepper

add in other ingredients, and then blend in seasonings. Done!
