Cauliflower Fried Rice

I shared my disappointment with Pei Wei's cauliflower fried rice in this morning's blog called Look Before You Eat – Pei Wei.  I thought it was only appropriate to share the recipe I used when I made cauliflower fried rice at home. Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe I made a couple of modifications to the recipe when … Continue reading Cauliflower Fried Rice

Go-To Foods, 41-50

This post will be more amazing veggies and additional snack food.  I know snack food isn't a requirement in life, but let's be honest, we like it.  It's important for me to read labels and find legitimate junk food.  I have actually bought some great stuff off of Thrive Market, but I am trying to … Continue reading Go-To Foods, 41-50

Go-To Foods, 31-40

We will start this installment with another group of healthy nuts, adding some seeds this time.  Again, look for those that are raw or only contain salt, not sugars or other added ingredients. 31.  Brazil Nuts Brazil Nuts give a lot of bang for the buck.  Since they are so big, you may just want … Continue reading Go-To Foods, 31-40

Go-To Foods, 21-30

Here we go with 10 more... This time, I'm going to start with fruits for when you need some sweet and then a few snacks, bars, and a protein.  It's going to get harder and harder to have themes as I do this.  But, in looking at fruits, I realize there are many varieties that … Continue reading Go-To Foods, 21-30

Go-To Foods, 11-20

For my second post, I am going to start with my favorite vegetables and then do some meats and a snack. 11.  Asparagus You can see my thoughts on this, in my previous blog Foods I Love – Asparagus.  You can sauté these in a skillet, or broil them in the oven, both using an appropriate … Continue reading Go-To Foods, 11-20

Go-To Foods, 1-10

I have a goal of producing a list of 100 go-to foods to help me (and hopefully you) learn what to eat when we are not prepared.  All of these foods will involve minor preparation, if any, and will be foods that I can acquire and have with me for emergency situations.  Some foods will … Continue reading Go-To Foods, 1-10

Foods I Love – Asparagus

I found a new website that I absolutely love!!  It is the "World's Healthiest Foods" and while it just sounds like a list of foods, it's so much more.  For each food on the list, there is a link to tons of research information on that food.  It gives nutritional information, as well as the … Continue reading Foods I Love – Asparagus

Foods I Love – Steel Cut Oats and Banana Milk

My mother-in-law suggested that I try steel cut oats to help my digestive issues. Considering I’m not a huge oatmeal fan (unless you count Quaker apples and cinnamon), I wasn’t sure. She mentioned that you needed to soak them overnight and I found a recipe for that. My husband made them Sunday night and Monday … Continue reading Foods I Love – Steel Cut Oats and Banana Milk

Recipe – Whole-Wheat Tortillas

This recipe was a life saver for this taco addict on the Daniel Fast. Thankfully, my husband made them because I don't think my culinary skills include rolling out tortillas. Honestly, I don't love them as much as H-E-B or other flour tortillas, but check out the differences in ingredients. This is real food. Those … Continue reading Recipe – Whole-Wheat Tortillas

Recipe – Roasted Chickpea and Brocolli Burritos

This was crazy good and completely unexpected. A Vegan friend from work encouraged me to try his lunch one day and then insisted I buy this cookbook for my Daniel Fast. The fire-roasted salsa recipe from the same cookbook is going to be harder to share, but the guys at Thug Kitchen posted this one. … Continue reading Recipe – Roasted Chickpea and Brocolli Burritos
