My Daughter In London Today @ Peggy Porschen Cakes!

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

 

 

 

Fall Time On My Front Porch.

I really enjoy decorating for each season/holiday.  I will leave my fall/Halloween decor on my porch until Thanksgiving weekend, then I will put winter/Xmas for a few weeks. 

Do you decorate? Which areas, where do you purchase your decor from? Leave me comments below!!

Before & After

Yuck! I hated the set up of my closet. It hasn’t been working for me for years, but finally I decided to spend the weekend re-doing it.

Wow! I doubled the space in the closet! Painting the inside of the closet makes me feel clean! Although you can’t see the paint job, I know it’s nice and pretty behind all of my clothes 🙂

We had to pull everything out of the closet-everything.

Lots of time, but only cost about $50.00 The paint ate up most of that budget. A couple shelving supports and an additional dowel.

I don’t have a “honey-do” list, but I do have a “daddy-do” list, haha! My dad is always so eager to help me with my crazy projects that I have going on!
