Vegan/Vegetarian Side Dish

What helped me lose 30 lbs?? Eating well!

Eating healthy was instrumental in helping me to lose 30 lbs! Meals like this are very low in Sodium, Dietary Fiber, protein, Thiamine, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous and vitamin K.

This is a shredded cauliflower blend (with carrots, broccoli) and edamame.  I put this over lettuce, and add an entire sliced avocado and balsamic vinegar.  I also enjoy this as a side dish with a serving of pinto beans.

This would also be fantastic over a baked potato with butter, or baked firm tofu, or as a side dish with a meat dinner.

How do I make it?

  • 1 16oz. package of pre-shred cauliflower/carrot/broccoli mix
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen edamame
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 diced garlic clove
  • Medium size frying pan

Turn stove burner on high.  Heat up the olive oil. First toss in garlic, then toss in bag of cauliflower blend. Turn heat down to med/high, stir in the edamame. Stir entire time, so food doesn’t burn.  Let mixture cook for 1 minute, then turn off the heat and cover.  At this point you could add cheese or a flavored sauce such as teriyaki, sweet/sour, whatever strikes your fancy! (Salt and pepper to taste.) Texture should be firm, slightly crunchy and NOT mushy.

Enjoy and stay healthy! xoxo

Driving My Disabled Son Around Makes Him Happy, and I’ve Made Money!

I Need To Vent!

Why Are People Such Assholes? I just really need to throw this out to the universe. Sorry if you are offended. If you are offended, you’re probably an asshole, sorry, truth hurts.

Men, women and even children have been known to be a assholes (or dicks). It doesn’t seem to matter their social economical background, race, religion or gender. For some reason I have encountered several interactions with assholes the past week!

Lying, cheating, insecure, daddy issues, I don’t give a shit!! Everyone has issues, and most people grow up and become responsible for themselves and stop blaming others. Find help for yourself. Just because you had a bad childhood doesn’t “entitle” you to be a dick! You are not entitled to be disrespectful to others, you are not entitled to judge people based on their appearance, and you are not entitled to think that you are better than anyone, EVER!

Further more, assholes, stop crying, complaining and feeling sorry for yourselves. Buy your own meals, buy your own drinks, stop sucking the life out of successful people who don’t have time for your pathetic excuses! I’m an unmarried mom with 2 kids in college and a disabled boy, not to mention I work full time, volunteer, and take classes at night. Most people don’t even know those details of my life. Why? because I don’t want to be labeled as “sad single mother”. Successful people don’t need other’s approval, pity, sympathy or help to feel good about themselves. Get over yourself!

Assholes I have 3 words for you….GET A LIFE!

Oh, and have a great week-end everyone 🙂
