A Delicious and Healthy Dinner

So once again, I have been gone quite awhile. Life has been busy these days! I decided to continue the Whole 30 but basically it is the Paleo diet now, because I am working on making this way of eating, a permanent lifestyle. It is so great for the body to truly eat healthy; without sugar, MSG, processing, etc. So the other night I made a simple, basic dinner but it was so good and very easy. I made lemon pepper tilapia, garlic cauliflower rice, and glazed carrots. This meal provides, protein, starch, and veggies. I made up the recipes for all these by experimenting and just having fun. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! xoxo

Tilapia:

-Tilapia
-Lemon Pepper Seasoning (Trader Joes, without sugar)
-1 Lemon
-Olive Oil

Squeeze lemon on tilapia and grind seasoning on top. Preheat Oven to 425 and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Serve with carrots and cauliflower rice.


Glazed Carrots:

Glaze:
-Mustard
-Melted Butter
-Brown Sugar (I didn't do this, but if you want to, its very tasty)

Put carrots in water and bring to boil. Turn down to medium low and cover for about 20-25 min. When carrots are done, drain and mix together butter, mustard, and brown sugar and drizzle over the carrots and enjoy!

Cauliflower Rice:

-1 head of cauliflower
-2 fresh cloves of garlic
-1 TBS Coconut Oil
-Salt and Pepper (add to taste)

Cut up cauliflower into small pieces and put into a food processor and grind until rice like consistency. Heat a skillet with the coconut oil and add cauliflower rice and stir around for about 4-6 minutes. (You do not want to brown it or fry it) Add salt and pepper. You can also add butter on top if you would like.
