How To Make Smoky Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Vegetarians, vegans or omnivores alike can enjoy this simple plant -based meal staple: roasted cauliflower steaks. In our home we tend to eat 2 or 3 vegetarian dinners per week. Since we like to choose organic and pasture-raised meat as often as possible, cutting down on our meat consumption helps us keep our grocery bill in check. I used to scoff at the term “cauliflower steaks” as if it was insinuating that cauliflower could ever…

Lemon Garlic Roasted Salmon and How I Meal Prep Lately

Do you meal prep on the weekends? Some months I will religiously prep food for work meals and make homemade snacks, other months (especially summer) I try to avoid long stints in the kitchen. Honestly, I find that meal prepping can lead to too much food, creating unnecessary food waste. The one meal I usually try and prep for no matter the time of year, is work lunches. I find that if I don’t prepare…
