I don’t know about you guys, but if you’re anything like me, you go crazy for just about any roasted vegetable. And roasted cauliflower has always been on the top of my list. There’s something about the way it gets all crispy, tender, sweet, and salty at the same time that makes it straight up IRRESISTIBLE to dig into.

When roasting cauliflower I usually go for the classic combo of avocado oil with salt and pepper, just because it’s easy and also totally freaking delicious. I have definitely been known to roast and devour a whole head of cauliflower solo style, but sometimes dinner deserves to be made a little more special by stepping the flavor up a notch (or two!).

This mexican roasted cauliflower does exactly that. By adding just a few little extra spices and garnishes you take a side dish that is already pretty much the best thing ever to the next level of DELICIOUS.

AKA –> craaaaazy delicious.

Ohh man. This collagen hot chocolate! It’s so so good you guys and I am beyond excited to be sharing the recipe with you. It’s creamy, chocolatey, and just the right amount of decadent.

In all honesty I haven’t always been the biggest fan of hot chocolate. Something about a typical version always seems to give me a tummy ache and so I just sort of steer clear of it. When it’s too sweet, made with dairy, additives and artificial flavors my body just says NOPE.

Can you guys relate? 

It wasn’t that I didn’t like the IDEA of hot chocolate. It’s just that the ingredients never really vibed that well with me. 

That is until I started making this yummy AF version. It’s perfect because you can make it as sweet as you like, with whatever type of natural sweetener that works for you. I usually use maple syrup because – YUM, but coconut sugar and honey are also super good. The choice (slash what you have available in your pantry 😂) is yours.

Well, helllloooo! And happy 2019!

Wow. Always weird to say the number of the new year. It’s kind of cliche but it always sneaks up on me! I’m thinking we should embrace it with this yummy & easy dinner recipe because:

your 2019 needs this easy paleo teriyaki salmon.

 

It’s my favorite meal that I’ve made these past couple of months, and I foresee it coming back again and again in our weekly meal plan for three reasons:

  1. This salmon recipe is super easy to make – most of the cook time is hands off.
  2. It’s also crazy healthy and free from all the inflammatory ingredients that usually gunk up a standard teriyaki sauce.
  3. SO YUMMY. Like so much flavor. With just the right sticky texture and a sweet to salty ratio that will keep you coming back for bite after bite. (The first time I made this recipe, my husband and I didn’t even bother eating off of plates. Literally devoured a whole batch straight off of the baking sheet. Savage I know, but don’t judge until you try this salmon for yourself! 😜)

I figured why not get the year started with a dinner that says: 2019, we are HERE – with some crazy delicious food in tow 💯

Food that is the equivalent of a power pose meal. Strong, bold, and good for your self confidence 😉
