What's for dinner?

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

We made Pizza last night, using cauliflower for the crust! Pretty cool, I thought. And it was actually a success! The boys weren't too sure about it at first, but Colse ended up really liking it. (Griff didn't love it). Brad thought it was delicious, too. I thought it was pretty good, but I think it kind of upset my stomach. Really good if you're trying not to eat too much bread. It really

wasn't hard to make, either. I think it was easier than making your own bread crust. Go here for the recipe.

Honey Lime Chicken (5 ingredients)

One night we had the YUMMIEST healthy dinner. I was in heaven. I love when you can find healthy recipes that actually have lots of flavor. We had Honey Lime Chicken and Quinoa. I found the chicken recipe HERE and I made the quinoa with the recipe on the box:

Quinoa Pilaf
1/2 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup green onions, diced
1/4 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup green pepper, diced (i left it out because i didn't have any)

6 cups quinoa, cooked using basic recipe
1/4 cup butter, or olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 cup almonds, sliced
1/4 tsp. oregano

  • saute veggies in butter or oil until crisp; stir in oregano. add sauteed veggies to cooked quinoa, mix well. salt to taste. add almonds. serves 6.
