Bananas “foster” with nut crumble

IMG_8438Yesterday I admit, I was decided to take a few minutes and veg on the couch during the day.  This is a luxury I allow myself every once in awhile.  I was sitting there watching “Chopped” on Food Network, and all of a sudden I found myself in the kitchen inspired to make something seasonal with what I had on hand.  I was craving a paleo – that is grain free- granola I had bought once at Whole Foods, but had put back the day before because I realized I could make that and save myself the money.  So that was my inspiration.

This recipe is so easy, yet so good!  You can use this nut crumble granola thing in the morning with a banana and almond milk, or maybe in some yogurt.


Buffalo Broccoli/Cauliflower “Wings”

The first time I made this dish was for a Super Bowl party. I have to say everyone really liked it and didn’t even care that it was cauliflower! After having a version made with broccoli at a restaurant, I started making it with both broccoli and cauliflower – although Paige prefers just broccoli!

Baked Kale Chips

These are really fun and easy to make even without a recipe. Just toss kale with oil put them on the pan and sprinkle with whatever you think would taste good. Start with just salt and then have fun! You can even make them sweet by adding a bit of maple syrup when you toss them in the oil.

And remember…like all leafy greens, Kale shrivels when it is cooked so it may look like a lot when you put it in the oven, but not when it comes out. To be safe, make 2 bunches so you can have leftovers.
