Will buying a car ever get any easier?
We have been looking for a new car for a while now and I had originally decided that it was time for a van. I mean, they have so much space and get decent gas mileage...right?!
Well we found one that we liked and last weekend Matt and his dad went up to Kansas City to check it out. It ended up selling literally 20 minutes before they got there to look at it. We were all so annoyed. Luckily the dealership was less than a mile from Trader Joe so the trip wasn't a total waste. Mama needed some more coconut oil spray. And it really makes me laugh to picture Toby in a Trader Joe.
After that bust, since everything happens for a reason, I decided that a van was not the way we needed to go yet. So began my search for a crossover vehicle. Cue the white Chrysler Pacifica in my driveway. I am in love. Hello third row seating and ample leg room for everyone. Plus, she's beautiful.
I am on day 6 of clean eating and I have really noticed a difference in how I am feeling. I definitely have more energy.
I have been experimenting with new recipes and I finally got the nerve to try my hand at cauliflower rice. If you have not made this yet, stop whatever you are doing and make it right now!
The Easiest Cauliflower Rice:
1 head cauliflower
1 TBSP coconut oil
4 cloves garlic
1 TBSP fresh cilantro, chopped
half a lime(optional)
Grate your cauliflower. I did it with a 4 sided grater and it turned out fantastic. I need to learn how to use my grate option for my Ninja though...
Heat coconut oil in a dutch oven(or any larger pot with lid)
Add garlic cloves and saute until just beginning to brown. Add cauli-rice and saute for 5-7 minutes. Toss in cilantro and cover for 2-3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and a squeeze of lime if you're feeling sassy.
We enjoyed this with clean turkey taco meat and a pile of fresh veggies to make "burrito bowls". It was amazing.
Do you enjoy the car buying process?
What is your favorite clean recipe?
All My Love,
