Cauliflower Rice & Guacamole Romaine Sandwiches

Mixed Vegetable Yellow Thai Curry with Cauliflower Rice (snack sized!)

Today's Tidbit:  I have two new fav things:

1.  Cauliflower "Rice":  an easy way to eat more super healthy Cruciferous Veggies while eliminating extra rice, pasta or cousous from your day.  My Veggie & Cauliflower "Rice" dish pictured above.

Cauliflower Rice can be made by simply taking a raw head of Cauliflower, cutting it into 1 inch pieces (removing any rough stems), and then throwing it all into a food processor and pulsing until a rice consistency is reached.  

Guacamole Romaine Sandwiches

2.  Guacamole Romaine Sandwiches:  the absolutely guilt free way to enjoy guacamole - on long crispy leaves of romaine lettuce - instead of using chips, with some beans thrown in to provide a little stomach filling protein - YUM!   I ate mine up so fast, there was no time for pictures!  But the one above shows the general principle of the thing:  make some Healthy Guacamole and spoon it into long crisp romaine leaves and top with some fresh diced tomatoes & beans!

I discovered both of these wonderful things while flipping through The Fresh Energy Cookbook by Natalia Rose & Doris Choi.  This is a great resource and cookbook with lots of healthy eating ideas.  You can check out some of their recipes here.

The Story of What Amy Ate Today:
Last year I created the What Amy Ate Today blog to share my personal story of losing over 40 pounds by making simple healthy changes to the way I was eating.  I wanted to show the real life picture of what my daily food choices looked like by simply posting every single thing that I ate every single day; which I did for 9 straight months!   

It all started on May 1, 2012, check out a sample post here:  

One day last July...
I wanted to show that it is possible to lose weight and be healthy without being on a diet and without starving or depriving yourself of anything.  I make healthy choices whenever I can, but I am a normal person living a real life and I want to enjoy it, so I indulge in special treats regularly too.   
It has been a great journey for me, further motivating me to seek out new foods, new recipes and new ways to prepare and eat more healthily and get more Vitamins and Nutrients (and Energy!)  into my day.   I look forward to continuing this journey by highlighting special recipes, new foods and/ or preparations that I discover or create, alongside any helpful Health information or news that I come across through the above "Today's Tidbit".  Thanks for joining me on my journey to better health and better living!
