Cauliflower & Chickpea Crock-Pot Curry

This is the first East Indian style curry dish I have ever made that I am 100% happy with! Whenever I have tried in the past I always feel like it is missing something…well NOT THIS TIME 🙂 This is a fast, simple, and delicious recipe and it gets even better as the leftovers sit in your fridge. Try it and I know you will love it ❤

And while I used specific ingredients in the making of this recipe, feel free to toss in other vegetables you may have in your fridge or garden (i.e. zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers, etc.) because I have no doubt that they will end up tasting just as delicious as what I used 😀

IMG_20160401_101545

The name of these little delicious morsels may be a mouthful to say, but I promise – these are some of the easiest and most flavorful fat bombs you can make!

They really do taste like lemon cheesecake and, surprisingly, are not overwhelmingly coconut-y. They are just so good! And they take about 5 minutes to make, if that!

I just know that I almost always have these on hand because sometimes something with a little fresh “zing” is just plain ol’ refreshing ❤ Thank you, lemon, for that!

And each bomb comes in at 10F/0.8nC/1P…so whether you follow a low carb/keto diet or not, you can still enjoy these without feeling guilty!!  (Typical Cheesecake Bite: 16F/21C/3P)

Keto Cheatos

            2017-01-08-08.55.33.jpg.jpg

I am so happy (and a little impressed) with these “cheatos”:-) They are suuuper low carb and totally satisfy my desire for a crunchy snack! They are great for dipping, too! Try softened vegetable flavor cream cheese, hummus(watch the carbs!), sour cream, cheese sauce, etc. AND they go amazingly along side chicken or tuna salad. Lastly, you can use them as a fun  salad topper…almost like a crouton!

The macros for the WHOLE recipe are 31F/2netC/36P ❤

relax-restore-750x750

It’s found in every cell, it’s the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and it’s necessary in over 300 reactions within the body.

But unfortunately, most modern farming practices have led to soil depletion of minerals including magnesium. This, combined with a lack of fresh foods, the consumption of a highly processed diet and other contributing factors, is why dietary intakes for most have diminished significantly.

Well, we’ve got good news for you! Garden of Life is excited to introduce its newest extension to our best-selling Dr. Formulated Probiotics line: Magnesium Relax & Restore.
