Meatless Mondays!

So, have y'all heard of this website? I had of course heard of the concept of cutting meat out of the diet without going completely veg, and I had even heard of "Meatless Mondays", but didn't know there was a big website and movement!


I took the pledge to not eat meat on Mondays. I figured it would be a good commitment, although I think I'm already down to one serving of meat once every other week.

You in? Spread the word too :)

Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Cauliflower

Yeah, yeah, we all love roasted veggies, especially brussels sprouts and cauliflower. Here's a slightly different way to spice things up.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts - cut in half
Chopped dried rosemary (let's say 1 tbsp for 1# of b.sprouts)
Lavender Salt (approx) 1-2 tsp for 1 # of b.sprouts
Olive Oil

Mix. Spread in a single layer (important so they are crispy!) and bake for around 20 min at 400 deg. (time varies depending on size of sprouts)

Roasted Cauliflower

One head of cauliflower - cut into florets (and dice the stalk)
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Mix. Spread in a single layer and bake for about 30 min at 400 deg (Just watch for crispy edges, then you're done)
