Successful Internet Recipe Finds – Day 12
by Renée Bodkin
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites. Sliced Baked Sweet Potatoes. Turbo Charge with a Kick Juice.
Ahhh, the beauty of the internet. In the never-ending endeavor to eat healthier and naturally, we have found some pretty awesome recipes online and we’ve actually TRIED them!! Anyone who knows me well, knows that I’m not a super good cook and I’m not very good at trying new things in the kitchen. Once I know a recipe that works, I stick with it.
So it was a “big day” in the Bodkin house when we tried not one but two new “recipes”. And even more amazing was EVERYONE enjoyed them! There actually wasn’t enough Buffalo Cauliflower for everyone.
I’d link to the recipe I used but I actually did a combo of a couple I found on Pinterest. I’m a bit of a Pinterest junkie. Feel free to look around my 80 plus boards!
Back to the RECIPE…. it was good. It was baked. And most importantly, it was EASY.
Super, easy recipe #2 was Sliced Baked Sweet Potatoes.
You should almost not even be able to call it a recipe, it is really that easy. Aside from the tricky cutting – thank you Philip for saving me a finger and cutting them for me. A little bit of olive oil, some seasoning, and 40 minutes in the oven at 425 degrees and BAM!!
And our juicing endeavors continue.
Philip found a pretty neat – albeit tedious – juice recipe this week with a balance of many good nutrients, the right amount of carbs, and it filled him up for lunch. It included: Avocado, Apple, Spinach, Celery, Cucumber, Lime, Pineapple, and Ginger (for the kick). We follow Jason Vale Juice Master on Facebook. This was posted as one of his “5 pounds in 5 days recipes”. You can also find it here.
My favorite morning recipe includes: Apple, Carrot, Celery, Lemon, and Ginger. And one of my favorite websites for juicing is: www.juicerecipes.com The cool thing about this website is you can plug in the ingredients you have on hand and it will give you suggested recipe ideas. Another bonus is that it gives you the nutritional information (macros or macronutrients) for any combination of juice you make (which is super helpful when you’re juicing for an insulin dependent diabetic).
So needless to say, I’m happy – and grateful – that we are finding new, easy, AND healthy recipes and ideas for cooking.
