NorCal Mexican Quinoa Salad
When VFitters get together, they bring the fun and the healthy food to share! This dish was part of the NorCal VFit get together and is a MUST MAKE! Chock full of nutrient dense and delicious ingredients, this is a real crowd pleaser and perfect to bring to a pot luck. Thank you Linda S for sharing! This is from the cookbook Soups and Sides by Catherine Walthers.
CAULIFLOWER BACON BISCUITS
These are delicious and need we say more!! Cauliflower, bacon, and cheese all in grain free delicious handheld biscuit.
We dare you to only eat one.
MADE OVER CHILI FRIES
Summer may mean more crisp salads and salsa-y fish tacos, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want something extra indulgent tasting in between acai bowls and plates of garden fresh Caprese. What to do when that moment strikes? Ladies and gentlemen, may we introduce VFit Squad Chili Fries. And although they sure don’t taste the part, these are So. Nutrient. Dense. Like, you can’t tell your sig other or children, because they’ll think you’re lying.
BALSAMIC ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS
We absolutely love brussel sprouts. And for those that don't already, this dish will make them Brussel Sprout Believers! This is a great way to enjoy them with a lot of added flavor and texture. Great as a side dish, or top with an over easy egg to make a meal.
Creamed spinach is one of those ultimate comfort foods. Perfect for a cool evening, or if you are in need of some warm, nourishing veggies. We've created a tasty spin on this comfort food classic that forgoes the actual heavy cream and tons of cheese, for sour cream instead. The end result is a nutrient dense power house side dish that will make you feel comforted AND satisfied by meal's end.
CHEWY GRAIN FREE FLAT BREAD
This is a great and simple recipe to whip up some chewy and delicious flat bread. These are perfect for BBQ chicken wraps, mini pizzas, or just about anything else you enjoy on bread. These store well in the fridge and just need to be reheated quickly to enjoy. Recipe was adapted from Paleo Newbie grain free tortillas.
CHILI LIME JICAMA FRIES
This recipe is inspired from the 21 day sugar detox. Jicama has the taste and texture of a few kinds of produce all in one: part apple, part potato, even a little carrot-like, it can easily take on different flavors and here we have it as some vegan fries. Jicama is a high fiber root vegetable that aids in digestion and is high in calcium and vitamin C to boot!
CHEESY GARLIC MASHED CAULIFLOWER
Potatoes are delightful, but why not switch it up sometimes with this cruciferous superfood instead? You won't notice the difference!
CAULIFLOWER LIME RICE
This is a great side dish for any meal! Fresh and delicious flavors and ingredients. The lime adds a nice kick of acidity and brightens up this faux rice blend nicely!
