A little perspective for you and yes I am a nutrition nerd. 🤓
Everything on both plates ARE great healthy choices for your ⛽️ BUT...too much of one macro can leave your plate unbalanced which means you get to “wear” the extra if you know what I mean. 👎🏻

🍲 The Meal - Boneless Ribs with Cauliflower Mac & Cheese
Weight Loss Version 🔻
The cauliflower mac & cheese steals the show in this dish. When I first tested this recipe I couldn’t believe how good it tasted considering how much I despise cauliflower.
I prefer to use frozen cauliflower for all of my recipes. It’s cheaper, 400x easier to work with, and milder in flavor. Whole cauliflower takes forever to breakdown and cook and still tastes like dirt no matter what you do to it so I avoid it at all costs.
Part of making mac & cheese is to make a bechamel sauce from a white roux and milk. When you add cheese to this it provides the cheese sauce for your noodled cauliflower.
Now I know some of you will naturally turn your nose up at the sight of a roux because of the butter. I think the small amount of butter is more than worth it because it’s allowing you to consume a massive amount of nutrient dense cauliflower. The trade off is well worth it to me.
One way you can make a lower calorie swap is to exchange the milk and white roux for plain Greek yogurt. It’s not as tasty and rich but still gets the job done.
Weight Gain Version 🔺
Mixed into the cauliflower mac & cheese on the weight gain side is a couple of cups of rice. It’s a seamless addition and I think makes the mac & cheese even better.
The Ribs used in this meal are called country style ribs which aren’t really ribs at all. They are just cuts off of the loin that have similar texture and are boneless making them perfect for this dish.
When you’re picking out a BBQ sauce try and find one that is a vinegar based instead of sugar. The one I use is local to Kansas City called Gates BBQ.
Obviously weight gain/loss is different for everyone, these are to be used as a guide.

WOULD YOU TRY THIS❓Toast reimagined - 🍞➡️🍠
And then topped like a boss!
1/2 large sweet potato
Salt and pepper to taste
Avocado slices with hemp seeds and oregano
Fried egg with fresh chopped parsley
Ricotta cheese with raspberries, coconut and honey
Peanut butter with banana slices, pecans and maple syrup.
1. Using a large sharp knife, slice the sweet potato lengthwise down the middle. With a steady hand, make 4-5 thin slices about 1/4"-1/3" thick from the middle of the sweet potato. You can keep the skin or discard. I prefer keeping the skin.
2. Spray sweet potato slices with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper
3. Insert slices into toaster (similar to bread) and toast the slices on high. Alternatively, you can toast them in a toaster oven or bake in the oven at 400 degrees
4. After the sweet potatoes pop up from the toaster, check to see if they are fork tender, and toast longer until cooked to desired texture. Depending on your toaster, you may also want to turn down the toaster setting to Medium.
5. Remove the sweet potatoes from the toaster, and cool on a wire rack before adding toppings.
HOW DOES DETOXIFICATION WORK❗❗
✴Basically, detoxification means cleansing the blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin.
1st very imp thing is to give some rest to your organs through:
ℹ intermittent fastingℹ like eating after intervals ❇HOLY RAMADAN is ahead MA and its the best time to consider detoxification 💞
So its basically Stimulating the liver to drive toxins out from the body
Promoting elimination through the intestines, kidneys, and skin
Improving circulation of the blood; and
Refueling the body with healthy nutrients
Why You Should Consider Green Tea as a Detoxification Agent
♻️Natural detox agent
♻️Neutralization of antioxidants
🔅In addition to being able to neutralize free radicals in the body, green tea will boost your immunity 🔆
♻️Fight against acne ⚠️Better take it before breakfast but make sure do not take it empty stomach you must balance the pH of your stomach by water intake as soon as you wake up have a glass of Luke warm water ⚠️
Take 1 teaspoon of green tea leaves for each cup. Else use a tea bag or organic green tea, herbs, lemongrass etc
Now, take a stainless steel pot/pan and boil the water. If you want to use a glass teapot instead, go ahead. The ideal temperature for green tea is 80°C to 85°C
Now, place the sieve/ strainer over the cup or mug.
Next, pour the hot water into the cup and let the tea steep for 3 minutes.
Now, take out the sieve and keep it aside. If you want, you may add 1 teaspoon honey , lemon, ginger or cinamon🤷♀️
Excess of everything is always Bad 🚫
Grabbing a quick breakfast and than off we go to the beach 🏖 it's so lovely weather since yesterday... It feels already like summer here in West Cork 🌞💯🍀 What are your plans for this lovely Easter weekend?
Soooo I skipped breakfast so was feeling like something really wholesome and refueling. Few more jobs to do around the house then off to the gym for an afternoon session. .
I literally love @baskinrobbinspk and I'm so glad they opened their second branch at #bukharicommercial ❤️ Which flavor are guys in love with? Mine is "Chocolate Mousse Royale" its such a rich chocolate flavor its a treat for the heart !! 😍😍 .
Una delle colazioni che preferisco :
La frutta secca abbinata al miele é insuperabile! 🍯
Si inizia la giornata con gli acidi grassi polinsaturi e la quota proteica data dalle noci e dalle mandorle + gli indispensabili carboidrati delle fette biscottate e del miele. #proporzione
E con una bella tazza di caffe americano,latte (che sia vaccino o vegetale) orzo o del thé #lacolazioneèservita
