All You Need Is Spice
Hey cheese lovers I have to say it was a ton of fun reading over everyone’s comments after last night’s post and learning what type of cheese is your favourite There was a huge variety of cheeses named! It was awesome I would say you all have amazing taste buds Next time I make the Caprese Spaghetti Squash, I will definitely be using bocconcini and update you all on it’s deliciousness! However, if any of you happen to make it before I do please let me know!
Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Tuesday Mine seemed to fly by; however, thinking back to this morning it feels like days ago… How does that work?
I had a wonderful sleep last night My body was aching last night. I had the sniffles and was chilled, so I took that as a sign to go to bed early So, I went to bed even earlier than usual! Talk about being a major Granny! I am totally not your typical university student… Aren’t we suppose to stay up until the wee hours of the morning working on homework?
Well, that’s not how I roll.
I listen to my body When I need rest, I give my body rest I was in bed by 9:45! But, fell asleep shortly after 10:00. I am so happy I went to bed early because I feel much better today All I needed was a good night’s sleep I guess!
But, I think my spicy supper helped clear up my sinuses as well
Last year in one of my Foods and Nutrition courses we learnt that drinking orange juice or taking vitamin C tablets while enduring a cold really doesn’t do too much. The vitamin C found in orange juice and the tablets do not “cure” your cold nor does it make you return back to good health any sooner. Instead, all vitamin C really does is temporarily relieve symptoms; such as a sore throat.
However, when it comes to spicy foods, I am all over them They also do not “cure” a cold, but boy do they clear out your sinuses!
So, for dinner last night I made a side dish that I have been craving for quite some time now It’s a wonderful blend of vegetables and the flavours accompany each other so well Not to mention the colours are beautiful together, too!
Roasted Curried Cauliflower, Green Beans, and Red Onion
Makes 4 – 6 servings
1 head cauliflower, separated into florets
1/2 lb. green beans, cleaned and trimmed
1 red onion, thickly sliced
2 TBSP olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, Toss vegetables in oil and arrange on baking sheet.
Sprinkle with curry. Toss again to distribute curry evenly on vegetables.
Roast in oven for 15 minutes or until vegetables reach desired tenderness.
I like my spice, so I added a lot of curry But, it’s totally up to you as to how much to add, so I didn’t put in a measurement for the curry This dish is also really tasty with a little dollop of plain (use Greek!) yogurt on the side or on top
I actually had this two nights in a row It’s one of my favourite ways to enjoy cauliflower And I think red onions are delicious when roasted
Throughout the week you will be getting even more recipes, but I also want to start sharing some workouts, too I have been doing the same routine for approximately 6 weeks now which means that it’s time to mix things up a little! So, be expecting some new workouts, too
Food and fitness. Could it get any better?
Do you like spicy foods?
Do you chew on vitamin C capsules when you have a sore throat?
Broccoli or cauliflower?
How often do you change up your workouts?
In my program there is an abundance of groups projects. Let’s just say it gets quite stressful; however, when I met up with two of my three groups today the meetings turned out to be very productive and successful I have some really good friends and we are working together well as a group which is lucky because sometimes it is hard to work on projects with friends!
I’ll be seeing you tomorrow with a new recipe to get you all in the Christmas spirit (if you aren’t already there!)
