Hello and happy Monday!
I can’t believe Mal and I traveled all the way to Hawaii and back. It was such an amazing, whirlwind trip, and I hope you enjoyed all of my blog posts so far. It was fun to write them! I still have one more post to come about the second hotel where we stayed, which was definitely a highlight of the trip. It will be on CNC first thing tomorrow—just need to finish it up!
This morning’s breakfast was a big, ripe plantain blended with Greek yogurt and shredded coconut. I used my Smart Stick to mix it all up, so it turned out whipped and wonderful. I also drank a glass of Dandy Blend with almond milk with breakfast.
I spent the morning work, work, working and then broke for lunch around noon. On the menu: a burger with avocado on top and some Roasted Buffalo Cauliflower, which was so delicious and easy to make. If you like buffalo sauce, you will love this recipe! I actually ended up going back for seconds of the cauliflower because it tasted so good.
- 1 large head cauliflower
- 1/2 stick of butter, melted
- 3/4 cup buffalo sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot)
- 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Cut cauliflower into florets and place in a large mixing bowl.
- In a separate, smaller bowl, combine butter, buffalo sauce, and garlic powder. Pour mixture over cauliflower florets and mix well until fully coated.
- Spread cauliflower onto a prepared baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes. Turn oven up to broil for 5 minutes or so and cook to desired crispiness.
- Remove from oven and enjoy!

I love coconut oil, so much, in fact, it’s become a staple in my diet. I use it in a variety of ways from sautéing vegetables to replacing the vegetable oil in my baked goods. Coconut oil is not only versatile in cooking, but it also has some pretty amazing health benefits. And, of course, coconut oil tastes great, so here are three ways to amp up the flavor profile of your meals!
