Does all this “healthiness” have you overwhelmed?
There is so much information out there! It’s amazing and confusing all at the same time. Take it 1 step at a time, Folks! I promise if you can make just one small change a month, things will start to naturally transform for you. Try not to let “all the info.” create burn out, lead you to “fall off the wagon” or make you never start. Remember, this is supposed to be a lifestyle change. Slow down, breathe and enjoy the ride.

Folk Note: I used regular paprika bc I couldn’t find Pimenton (Or Spanish paprika. They have a bright, spicy, smoky flavor and a vibrant red color that makes just about anything that much more delicious). I also prepared the whole head (doubled the recipe) so that I had yummy leftovers. Roasting does something magical to vegetables. It almost makes it sweeter! Trust me!
Folk Kiddie Note: If you are having a hard time getting your youngsters to eat cauliflower, try mixing the roasted cauliflower into some healthy mac n cheese. They’ll never know what’s in it and you won’t be able to resist having some yourself.
Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a large mixing bowl, toss the cauliflower, oil, salt, black pepper, coriander seeds, and bay leaf, paprika & chili powder to coat. Spread the cauliflower evenly on a baking sheet and roast in the oven, tossing every 10 minutes, for 30 minutes, or until it becomes tender and brown. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Discard the bay leaf.

For example why quinoa is better: Quinoa is a complete protein based grain, so it contains all the amino acids necessary for our nutritional needs. It is super high in iron and calcium, as well as a good source of magnesium, copper, and fiber. White rice is a carbohydrate based grain. It may have slightly less calories per serving than quinoa, but it’s irrelevant since the gluten and carbs in the rice turn into sugar after we consume it, which can eventually turn to unwanted fat. Quinoa on the other hand, processes through our body efficiently, providing fuel as a clean protein. This make quinoa the better choice every time! Click here for more information from Picklee!
