We’re back from Canada, and I have a non-cookie related, healthy recipe for you.
Along with some very important life lessons. READ ON.
In my 24 years on this earth I have learned that there are only a few things that you can count on to be 100% true. Always:
- Peanut butter cheesecake bars fix all problems.
- It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere (read: anytime IS a good time for a margarita)
- Cheese also has the ability to cure all wounds, broken hearts and bad days.
Maybe they’re cousins?
And finally, and this is one that I have just recently learned: 4. Cauliflower is the “Super Man” of vegetables.
Or woman. I’m an equal opportunity cauliflower-ist.
It makes amazing cauliflower pizza with Greek yogurt pesto, cauliflower mashed potatoes, rice AND cauliflower Alfredo sauce. Is there anything that this boring looking, white, vegetal delight can’t do?
Now, I don’t know about you, but I HATE with a capital HATE making side dishes for dinner. If I could just throw EVERYTHING in a crock pot and have a slow cooker mango chicken and sweet potato bowl for dinner every night? #WINNING.
But, there’s a story behind this here side dish (that I am totally, utterly and completely in LURVE WITH by the way).[clickToTweet tweet=”This #Lowcarb Bacon & Goat Cheese Cauliflower Bake is a #healthy, SIMPLE #glutenfree side dish!” quote=”This #Lowcarb Bacon & Goat Cheese Cauliflower Bake is a #healthy, SIMPLE #glutenfree side dish!” theme=”style2″]
It was one of THOSE days. You know those days when you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed for absolutely no reason. The days where not even waking up to cookie dough overnight oats makes you happy.
The kind of day where you just want to throw rocks at the happy-sounding birds chirping outside your window.
Until you realize that you would have to pay for a broken window and your day would go from bad —> MEGA bad.
Eventually it was time to make dinner. I became grumpier at the thought of having to make something besides a piece of chicken. So, I pondered the few keys facts in life that I knew I could count on. I had no peanut butter (!!!) So that was off the list.
How-ev-er, what I did have was a head of cauliflower and a whole lot of creamy, dreamy, super addicting goat cheese. Bright light!
Into the food processor went the aforementioned suspects. Along with some salty, crunchy bacon.
Because, I learned when we added bacon to maple roasted Brussels sprouts with sweet potatoes, that adding bacon to veggies is always a good idea. Really, adding bacon to ANYTHING.
And, when it came out of the oven and I dug into its soft, creamy and oh-so-cheesy deliciousness, well, my day? It became the best. Day. Ever.
P.s Are you wondering where “it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere” was when I was pondering my list?
I’ll give you one guess.
