Buffalo Cauliflower & Blue "Cheese" Dip

Had a potluck/ BBQ this weekend and saw it as the perfect opportunity to make this recipe that I've been seeing all over Instagram:

Vegan-tested, gluten-free-loved, and carnivore-approved!

Here's a link to the recipe I used. I subbed gluten free all purpose flour because I couldn't find brown rice flour that day. The batter didn't stick or bake very well, so I will need to play with the recipe again next time. Still edible and enjoyable, especially the blue "cheese:"
Here are 2 more recipes, if that one doesn't suit you. I love Snapguide in particular, for making anything! Yay, for steps and pictures.:

Super-healthy "Mac" and "Cheese"

Lately I've been so busy with life, work, and working out (I found an awesome new routine that I'll be sharing soon) that I have barely had time for making food at home. I subsist largely through whole fruits, veggies, hummus, pre-prepped grains, and the juice bar next to my gym. Luckily there are some healthy recipes I know that don't require ANY cooking, just my trusty spiralizer.

The Real "Easy Mac:"

  • fresh raw zucchini, spiralized into long or short noodles (I like short because they are the most like "real" mac n cheese noodles)
  • vegan cheese sauce  (in the refrigerated area of health food stores, near the guac and hummus. I like the brand Annie's, but see below for some links to homemade or raw recipes you can make yourself!)
  • -veggie toppings, like spinach and tomatoes, for extra nutrition and texture
Toss together and you're done! Delicious! You can also heat the sauce first, I think it is much better than cold Mac.
