Cauliflower Stir-Fry

Praise the Lord for cauliflower rice. The once forgotten vegetable is making an incredible comeback, and I am really grateful for it. One of the easiest things I make is a cauliflower stir fry, it is cheap and easy to make. I can throw virtually anything in there and it tastes delicious.

I ended up losing 11 pounds while doing this detox. It was not my intention going into the detox, although it was a nice surprise. I ate as m

21 Day Detox : Week 2

Alright folks, here is week 2. I was a little nervous about this dinner smoothie, but I really like it! If you like carrot juice you will like it too, its actually really tasty. The second week brings us into an all uncooked plant-based diet.  You have your breakfast smoothie in the morning and then a salad for lunch and tons of veggies, nuts and fruits for snack throughout the day.
