Last night I had the sweet & spicy chicken skewers for dinner.  They had chicken, pineapple, onion, squash and zucchinni on the skewers.  The glaze was mix of 3 Tbsp ketchup, 1 Tbsp maple syrup, 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce, 1 Tbsp cider vinegar, and and 1 tsp (or more to suit your tastes) sriracha.  Just brush the glaze on before grilling then again right before you take them off (a separate batch so it's not contaminated by chicken juice)  I left the sriracha off the ones I made for my kids cause it really makes them spicy.

I'm in! I need to eat healthier!
Last year I cut out sodas; expect for when I was at a party or something, than I'd drink one or choose juice (for the vitamins but it does contain lots of sugar too :s)
I just bought a rice cooker so hopefully I can come up with some tasty healty meals!
The tips through this thread are great! Going to write them all up Cheesy

Today I made mashed garlic cauliflower. Always thought that was the desperate low-carbers way to cheat and remind themselves of the joy of spuds but I like it on it's own merits. I made it with a potato masher after defrosting a bag of garlic califlower florets. Yummy.
What was I afraid of?

Today I made mashed garlic cauliflower.


would love a few tips on how you made that..my current goal is low/no carbs during the week, although I do have some quinoa and kidney beans at lunchtime, i will allow myself one serve of carbs on weekend days. I had lost about 50lbs on the HCG diet, but ate really badly for most of the autumn/christmas and gained about 16 of that back...but the no carb thing since Monday has dropped 3.74lbs, which is good. it was recently gained so it will fall away fast. And a good reminder not to sabotage my recent losses!!

so I have two goals for the next few weeks. no bread, pasta, etc during the week. And I don't take the elevator at work until the end of january (we are only a three story building, but it is verboten to me!!)

Oooh cauli mash, yummy!  I love cauliflower rice as well, yummo, you just blitz it in the food processor and microwave for 3-4 mins, is delicious with a curry or with stir fried veg.  My friend boils the cauli rice in water but it comes out more like sloppy mash, I prefer the microwaved method as it keeps a little bite and is more flavoursome Smiley

I have a feeling my healthy eating is going to go out the window this afternoon after I give blood. I'm already starving after having just finished my lunch...worried about how hungry ill beafter donating tonight since it usually makes me ravenous. Hopefully an extra big stir fry will be enough!

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.

We must all be on a cauliflower kick cause I made cauliflower crust pizza for myself last night.  It was the first try and I will cook it longer next time so it gets a bit crisper on the bottom.  But all in all it was pretty good!

Here is a link to a recipe for mashed cauliflower.  You will need to make some substitutions to make it a bit more low fat though(You can sub evaporated skim milk in place of the heavy cream, and low fat cheese in place of the full fat stuff). http://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/2012/01/better-than-potatoes-cheesy-cauliflower.html
