Tonight: BBQ Chicken, Steam Asparagus & Cauliflower Mash :) & Apple Pie for the Boy :)

BBQ Chicken:
I used a salad dressing for my chicken marinade.  I just add the chicken & the dressing to a ziplock bag and let marinade in the fridge.  If I don't use this marinade I just use something simple like lemon juice and garlic or a dry marinade rub with spices (no salt) rubs are way lower in calories than bbq sauce!  The dressing I use is super versatile and rich in B vitamins It is great as a marinade, on cooked grains, and fresh greens!
  • 1/2 Cup Nutritional yeast *
  • 1/3 Cup water
  • 1/3 Cup Tamari 
  • 1/3 Cup Apple Cider Vinager
  • 2 Tbsp Crushed Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Flax Seed Oil
Combine Ingredients in blender till thoroughly mixed.
*  Nutritional yeast comes from molasses (rich in B :) when you go out to buy it do not confuse it with brewers yeast. 
Cauliflower Mash: 
Pureed or mashed cauliflower is a great substitute for mashed potatoes. Low in carbs and high in nutrients, the "cauli-taste" is very mild. Try it even if you think you won't like. 
  • raw cauliflower - a medium head makes a good mash :)
  • flax oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
Steam Cauliflower.  Blend with other ingredients.
