🍲 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.

Weight loss vs. muscle gain meal ideas! 💪 *Swipe to see lunch, dinner & a snack idea* .
While no one meal will make you gain or lose weight, your meals and snacks for the day all together will add up to hit your target goals.
As a reminder, for fat loss you need to be in a sustainable caloric deficit. For muscle gain, you need to be in a caloric surplus. For macitence, you need to be at a a caloric maintenance level.
While that exact caloric number will be different for everyone, here are some examples to help you reach your goals.
As you can see for the weight loss meals, they’re not devoid of all complex carbs. While at dinner, I skipped the rice for cauliflower rice, at lunch, I still included the full sweet potato and just skipped the toppings that were in the muscle gain meal.
Additionally, I made sure I had plenty of healthy fats in the weight loss meals but still had a smaller portion than in the muscle gain meals.
More info below:
Breakfast fat loss - 2 eggs + 2 egg whites, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes + 1/4 cup mushrooms + 1/4 cup asparagus sautéed + 1 piece Ezekiel toast.
Breakfast muscle gain - Added 2 eggs, + 1/4 avocado, + 1 tbsp pb.
Lunch fat loss - 4oz chicken, 1 sweet potato, 1 cup broccoli.
Lunch muscle gain - Added 2oz chicken, added 1 banana + 1 tbsp pb.
Dinner fat loss - 4oz wild salmon, 1 cup cauliflower rice, 1 cup mushrooms + 1 cup kale sautéed in 1 tsp olive oil.
Dinner muscle gain - Added 2oz salmon, subbed in 1 cup rice for 1 cup cauliflower.
Snack fat loss - 1 cup strawberries + 25g chocolate
Snack muscle gain - 1 cup strawberries + 1 medium banana + 45g chocolate

Happy (almost) Easter 🐣 my beautiful friends! Here is a cute breakfast 🥞 pancake idea! Let me know what you think! 💛 🐰 🥚
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?
Not any regular platter but this is Mezze feast!
At @fablecafeandbar MEZZE PLATTER comes with - Chicken Shish Touk, Hummus, Lebaneh, Tabbouleh, Harissa, Pickled Olives & chillies and Home made Za’atar Pita and Lavash!
How stomach filling does that sound to you?
We can never get over our obsession for Lebanese cuisine and Mezze platter being the top most choice - Fable won our hearts!
The spices used in Lebanese cuisine have been proven to reduce bloating, promote healthy digestion, breakdown fat, maintain hormone levels, and stimulate excellent brain function. The dips on the Mezze platter at Fable provide a multitude of health benefits and are, of course, super delicious!
We've been talking a bit this week about great desserts for Easter dinner, and what could be better than Carrot Cake? This Healthier Carrot Cake is so good, it's actually move to the top of the list of things Tyler asks for whenever we're not overloaded with recipe testing leftovers!

Menurut artikel seperti yang dilansir dari Boldsky, rajin minum air hangat yang dicampur dengan perasan jeruk lemon adalah pengobatan sederhana namun efektif untuk mengurangi lemak perut.
Kandungan vitamin C tinggi di dalam lemon akan membantu meningkatkan kesehatan sistem pencernaan dan mendorong fungsi lever jadi lebih baik.
Lemon juga mampu mengeluarkan racun dari dalam tubuh, memberikan suntikan energi, dan meningkatkan keseimbangan hormon. Hal inilah yang menjadi lemon sebagai buah luar biasa sehat untuk tubuh.
Untuk mendapatkan manfaat sehat yang maksimal dari lemon, minumlah air perasan jeruk lemon yang dicampur air hangat saat pagi hari ketika perut sedang kosong.
The lavender in blooming in my yard. Everything looks so beautiful. I'm loving this mini super bloom we have going on right now.
I've been cutting bunches of lavender every couple of days then hang them from my kitchen cabinets to dry for a few weeks and then use them in recipes like this AIP Honey Lavender Marshmallows.
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
