Yesterday was Easter Sunday, and like most holidays, we use food as a means of celebrating the day. We indulge!
And that's totally OK! Holidays are meant to be enjoyed. This means disconnecting from work, appreciating the people you are with, and making memories! It also includes appreciating delicious food, even if it's typically on your "no, no" list (i.e high fat, rich foods).
But I have a secret that allows me to fill up in a guilt free way, while still getting to enjoy and taste all foods that I typically stay away from.
The secret is VEGETABLES. Delicious, satisfying, baked vegetables. I load up on the veggies, and then savor and eat less of the food that typically is on my "no, no" list.
What you see here is Baked Cauliflower (top) and Baked Butternut/Acorn Squash Mix (bottom). SO simple. SO good. I'm eating leftovers right now for breakfast as I type. Here's my recipe!

Don't forget to test taste!
Also, the great thing about these veggies is that even the non vegetables lovers will enjoy them! Trust me- I witnessed it happening!
