Zucchini Noodles & Shrimp

One of my new favorite foods has been shrimp. Back in the day, the only way I would eat shrimp was deep-fried, with something unhealthy to dip it in. Now that I have learned the pleasures of eating nutritiously, I have found all kinds of new ways to enjoy this delicacy. I stumbled across a … Continue reading

Broccoli and Mushroom Casserole

Time for another new vegetarian recipe! I came across a whole collection of yummy sounding recipes that I am tweaking and working with TSFL’s Nutrition Support on.

Who knew??

Who knew that cauliflower could be used in so many yummy ways? I certainly didn’t.

Sun-Dried Tomato Shrimp Salad
