Whether that is your experience or not, it is never too late to create these kinds of memories for your own children, grandchildren, or the people in your life.
With smells in mind, I offer a few fun and festive recipes that are healthy, delightful and memorable. Let me know what you think of them.
1 head cauliflower
1/2 red onion, diced
1 Tbsp curry powder
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Clean and cut cauliflower into florets. Toss vegetables in bowel with all other ingredients. Place in roasting pan and cook for 25- 30 minutes. You can enjoy as finger food or serve as a side dish. Try not to eat the whole pan in one sitting.
Citrus Zinger Smoothie
One of my favorite smoothie recipes and great when the citrus is in season and juicy.
2 frozen bananas
2 oranges, peeled or just the juice
½ organic lemon, juiced w/ ¼ of peel
3 dates, chopped
2 cups greens (kale, spinach, swiss chard)
2 drops YL Citrus Fresh or Lemon essential oil
1 & 1/2 cup water (or 1 cup almond milk)
Blend all until smooth and creamy. Great for those busy days when you need to take something on the go.
I threw this together one night and, Oh my! It was so delicious.
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken pieces
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp prepared Dijon or brown mustard
¼ tsp sea salt
½ tsp curry powder
¼ cups dried apricots, chopped in chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken one layer deep in a glass oven proof dish. Mix remaining ingredients, except for apricots and drizzle over the chicken. Sprinkle apricots around.
Bake for 30 minutes, turning chicken or basting chicken pieces every 10 minutes. Cook until chicken is cooked through and surface is browned and sticky good. Serve over rice.
