Cheesy Cauliflower

How To, Meal Planning, Recipes, Veggie of the Month
“Cauliflower is nothing but a cabbage with a college education.” Mark Twain This marks our last blog for cauliflower! Next month we are moving on to a new vegetable to integrate into your diet. Some of you may be glad to have a new vegetable to try out especially if cauliflower is just not your thing.  Over the past couple of weeks I have tried to sneak cauliflower into our dinners without Jason noticing. The most successful to date was adding it to our twice baked potatoes for our vegetarian night.  For this, I simply steamed some cauliflower (I also steamed broccoli and spinach) and added to the scooped out potato insides plus all the other regular fixings.

Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe

How To, Meal Planning, Recipes, Veggie of the Month
In an attempt to get my clients and myself to eat a variety of vegetables, I thought a monthly blog would be helpful. I am naming this segment a vegetable for breakfast because I believe everyone should eat veggies at every meal. I see no greater reaction than telling a new client about adding a vegetable to their morning routine.

Why? Well during a conversation with my son the other day I realized he had never eaten cauliflower.  In twelve years I never made him eat it or served it with our dinners. This…
