For the love of Cauliflower. This week we are making Ziti without the pasta!

  You’ll need:
  • Cauliflower Florets
  • onion (chopped)
  • Garlic Minced
  • Dry Seasoning (Optional) – Cilantro,  Garlic powder, Oregano, Basil, and whatever other seasonings you like
  • lean ground beef
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Cheese – Provolone, Mozzarella and Parmesan

Now let’s get cooking:

  1. Steam the Cauliflower briefly – Cauliflower should still be relatively firm
  2. In a large skillet, brown onion, garlic and ground beef over medium heat, add marinara sauce and additional dry seasoning if needed and simmer.
  3. Combine ground beef and cauliflower.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a baking dish. Layer as follows: 1/2 of the cauliflower and ground beef mixture, then cheese, remaining cauliflower and ground beef mixture. Then top with more cheese
  5. Bake for Approximately 20 minutes.

I like drinking tea, it’s apart of my life, growing up in the Caribbean I pretty much had a  tea garden outside. I would just step outside, pick some leaves, rinse, trim, boil and enjoy. Yes I knew what tea bags were, but why buy tea bags when there where about 15 different tea leaves freshly going outside. 

First I don’t think you can drink tea and just lose weight; I wish but it doesn’t work like that. Diet and exercise are key also. The Tea I am using is Skinny Mint Tea Morning Boost and Night Cleanse (and nope they are not paying me for this post nor do I receive any compensation if you make a purchase); I just got this tea (a tea bag really) from a friend and liked it and went ahead and purchased it. I am pretty sure you can try these recipes with any other two part detox tea.  I am a Computer Consultant and a company owner; work is crazy and I can’t always make the tea before hand or keep fruit in my bag (I have forgotten fruit in my bag not fun). I went on a search to find natural sugar free flavors and I discovered True Citrus on Amazon. (I am an Amazon Affiliate I will be compensated if you purchase this) 

                                                     

For each recipe simply add 1 tea bag or serving of tea for the loose leaf type for 4-5 minutes in nearly boiling water, then add additional ingredients (Mix if necessary) or follow the directions on your detox tea then add additional ingredients. recipes are good for roughly 12-20 oz of water.
