Curry Cauliflower Snack

I know I said I wasn’t going to be all “Look at me, I’m fasting!” this month, but some of these veg recipes are too good not to share.

This one is a combo of a few recipes I found.

1 head cauliflower, chopped into bite-sized pieces
3 Tablespoons melted coconut oil (just gently melt it in the microwave)
1 Tablespoon curry powder (or more if you like curry, and I do)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric (or more if you like turmeric, and I do)
S&P

Mix ’em all up in a big bowl, coat the cauliflower really well, and put in the oven at 375 for about 25-30 min (depending on the amount and size of your florets and how roasty you like ’em).

Pull them out and mix them with some salted cocktail peanuts, crushed or not crushed (depending on how hungry you are).

Add sriracha.
Add cilantro.
Add whatevs.

So so nom. It’s the perfect “I’m working but I’m starving” treat.


Homemade Chicken Fingers (So easy and nom!)

My son fell in love with chicken fingers a two years ago when we ordered him some at a

chain restaurant. I cringe every time he orders them because I know they’re covered in enriched flour and fried. I wouldn’t put it in my body, and I try to dissuade him from putting it into his (but he’s 4, so I know nothing and am bothering him most of the time). As often as possible I make my own chicken nuggets at home. I blend my own breading and bake them in the oven; super easy and super delicious. Here’s my recipe, tweak as you like! Set the oven to 425. I start by making the bread crumbs. Don’t buy bread crumbs. They’re gross and full of chemicals and sugar and it’s just dumb to buy them. I toast 3 pieces of gluten-free bread and combine them in the blender with salt, pepper, paprika, ground flax seed, dried basil and oregano, and some parmesan cheese. Flax seed is an awesome omega-3 and source of fiber, super great for helping your body to absorb the other nutrients you are eating. You’ll have to play with the amounts according to your own taste buds. Whatever you do, choose a loaf of bread that is not ENRICHED. “Enriched” means that the seed of wheat is stripped into pieces. The outside and some of the inside layers are removed (to increase shelf-life) and then some nutrients are added back in from non-natural sources (a natural source would mean whole foods, such as getting vitamin C from oranges, not from a vitamin). Your body basically reacts to enriched flour the same way it reacts to sugar. Look for a 100% whole grain bread without sugar in the ingredients and either put it in the fridge or freeze it to keep it longer. I use gluten-free by choice, but it is not necessary. Then I cut 2-3 pounds of all-natural, no hormone chicken breasts. They are more expensive, and with the budget I live on it would be easy to scrimp here, but there is ALWAYS a sale in the natural meat section. Purchase when they’re on sale and freeze! I cut the chicken breasts when they are very cold or ALMOST frozen. It’s easier to get a clean cut when chicken is cold and dense, so the nugget or chicken finger stays together better. I tend to filet the breasts down the middle if they’re thick enough and then cut into strips. The thicker the breast, the longer it takes to cook, and the more likely you’ll burn your breading. Cover two baking sheets in parchment paper or aluminum foil with baking spray. Crack 2 eggs in one bowl (add some steamed and blended broccoli, zucchini squash, or sweet potatoes to the egg wash for some added nutrients your kids don’t realize they’re eating!) and toss the homemade bread crumbs into another bowl. Drop a raw chicken finger in the egg and then dredge it into your flour. Lay each finger out on the baking sheet with at least an inch in between to assure they don’t nag each other while they’re in the oven. Place them in the oven for 10 minutes. Then, flip them over and turn the baking sheets around so the front is now in the back. Give them another 10 minutes and they’ll be done-zo. 2-3 pounds of chicken will yield enough for 4 or 5 people. The great thing about leftovers is they’re so easily freezable. Pop them in the oven anytime you want them; no need for store bought chicken fingers ever again! Kid-tested. Add some homemade honey mustard or ketchup (without sugar or high fructose corn syrup) and some oven sweet potato or carrot fries and you’ve got an awesome, healthy meal!!
