A quick little post to share with you before Thanksgiving dinner is done being planned, but first I want to say a Big THANK YOU to all of my readers for following this blog and supporting Grow In Wellness!
Are you looking to upgrade parts of your Thanksgiving meal? One way you can do so is to try one of these two delicious (and easy) recipes. Both center around a vegetable that is most often an afterthought, but please keep reading, because this vegetable has a lot to offer. I’m talking about cauliflower. A cruciferous vegetable that gives us a myriad of vitamins like B’s, C and K, it also contributes to cancer prevention, reduces inflammation, gives us fiber and adds cardiovascular support from it’s omega 3’s.
While it typically shows up on a plate steamed and hiding between carrots and broccoli as a restaurant’s vegetable side dish, there are better ways to prepare this gem of a vegetable. My favorite is to roast it until it is golden and delicious. Below are links to two of my favorite (healthy!) recipes - one with garlic and lemon by Emeril Lagasse and the other by Giada Di Laurentiis. If those don’t sound good to you, I’ve added a link to Bon Appetit’s grouping of cauliflower recipes, too. (I can’t say BA's are all healthy, but they do look tasty and it’s still a better choice than mashed potatoes and gravy).
Mix things up a bit at this year’s Thanksgiving dinner and bring a new “guest” to the table with one of these recipes. Stop back by and let me know if any of these made it to your table this year.
Wishing you a Happy (and healthy) Thanksgiving!
