Okay, so last night I tried the “mock’ mashed potato recipe and I’m happy to say that it was a great success!
After boiling the cauliflower for 7 minutes, I threw it in the food processor with the rest of the ingredients. I didn’t have fresh garlic so I used garlic powder and I drizzled a little EVOO to get it moving.
Disclaimer: Do NOT eat this before an event, going out or going to the gym. Cauliflower is a cruciferous veggie and they cause gas and bloating. Not pretty. Nonetheless, a very delicious alternative to mashed potatoes!
While the cauliflower was boiling I decided to grab my yellow squash and make “squash chips” before they spoiled.
Sliced up squash drizzled with EVOO, garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano and paprika!
Dinner is served!
I am incapable of skipping dessert, so this was immediately following:
After dinner, I forcefully went to the gym thanks to some motivational text messages that reminded me of the two bites of Portillo’s chocolate cake I ate after lunch. (I really need to just throw that out).
I promised I’d show you my snazzy new running sneaks, so here they are:
And here is my new nike thermal hoodie that I bought for $35 from $65 (thank-you-very-much!) I loved that it has a cut-out for your pony tail – perfect for running outside! (Please ignore my dorky pose, just pay attention to the pony tail feature)
You may have noticed that I have gone a little picture happy with my new Photoshop app, but that’s because it’s so much fun!
Anyway, today is Thirsty Thursday so bust out that H20 and get crankin! (I was craving Dunkin Donuts – easy cream, no sugar of course!)
A little motivation:
