Vegan Taco Bowls with Cilantro Lime Cauliflower “Rice”

I’ve been dreaming about this meal for over two weeks now, but I wouldn’t let myself make it until I started my Whole30 as on of my celebratory “yay for me” meals. I could eat this daily, for a week, and be content. It’s quick to prepare, tastes incredible, and is loaded with good-for-you things like omega-3s, healthy fats, fiber, all of that and then some. Did I mention it’s…

Slow Cooker Ghee

We had a Secret Santa gift exchange with my family this year. We now have 8 adults in the family and one infant. So instead of just buying whatever for each person or couple, we decided to try something more personal. I had gift ideas in mind for just about every possible person EXCEPT the person I drew. Go figure. I know he’s a professional football fan, both my brother-in-laws are,…

Bacon Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttt’s BACON! Well, partially. The other day at the grocery store I spied beautiful stalks of Brussels sprouts and I *needed* it. There may have been a victory dance involved, and I immediately started plotting which of my usual go-to recipes I would make. But then the days passed and I never had the opportunity to make the sprouts for lunch, the only meal for which the Godfather (also resident hater of the…

Cauliflower Flatbread for the Lazy Clean Eater

The lazy clean eater? We are All About That here. If I can skip steps in my healthy recipes to save time in the mealtime dash to get food on the table before the tiny tyrant in the house has a meltdown, I’m doing it. This is actually why I hadn’t posted a veggie flat bread-pizza crust-tortilla-whatever recipe on the blog yet. Most of them seem to require that you pre-cook the…

Pan-Seared Lemon Brussel Sprouts

It’s time for some Godmother “life musings”. If you’d like to skip this part and go straight to the recipe and food talk, please feel free. I still love you, it is okay. I get excited about brussel sprouts too. Recipe talk resumes after the next photo. I do want to take a little moment that defined the rest of my day. As I was unloading the clean dishes from our…

Sauces and Condiments

Cilantro Lime Aioli

Condiments and I have a bit of a complex relationship. For the most part, I’m afraid that they are present mainly to cover sub-standard quality food in casual dining restaurants. Steak sauce has no place on a quality, well-made steak, so if it’s offered, you don’t have a good steak. If your vegetables have to be doused in “cheese sauce” or a stick of butter to be palatable, they were…

Mango Mojito “Ice Cream” – Paleo, Dairy Free, Clean Eating Cuban Style

Once upon a time, the Godmother weighed over 200 pounds. I was entering my second year at the University, had just gotten out of an awful emotionally abusive relationship with that “what in the world was I thinking” person many of us date at one point in our lives, and somewhere along the way I chose to try and deal with recovery by not paying attention to what I was eating.…
