Cauliflower Rice

So my personal chef client recently bought a Cuisinart food processor. I think it’s mostly because she felt bad for me when she would watch me make cauliflower rice, her favorite dish, since it would take me an hour grating the cauliflower head by hand with a cheese grater. EXHAUSTING. […]

SWEET STUFF!

Do you want something that is sweet, easy to make, cool for the summer, and super healthy?  Ahhh, me too. And I want it to actually fill me up, unlike an ice pop or bowl of Arctic Zero whey-protein ice cream (although that stuff is good). Introducing the perfect summer […]

Post Workout Snacks!
