Lemon Turmeric Roasted Cauliflower

Cauliflower has been having a moment in the health food world and blogs. We are using it as rice, in gnocchi, in cheese, as risotto, and even as oats. I’ve been so focused on trying to be creative with this amazing versatile vegetable that I totally forgot about how delicious it is in its pure original form!

There’s something so delicious about the combination of lemon and turmeric so I decided to infuse that flavor into this savory and addicting side dish.

How to Make the Best Tasting Roasted Cauliflower

After roasting them for years, I’ve found that there are several tricks to making the tastiest cauliflower that’s evenly cooked with the best texture that’s crispy and not mushy:

  • When you cut them into florets, try to make them all similar in size to ensure even cooking.
  • If you wash the cauliflower before cooking, make sure they are dry before adding seasoning.
  • Toss with oil and seasoning in a separate bowl to make sure they are evenly coated.
  • Roast in an even single layer without crowding the pan. Use two pans if you need to.
  • Many ovens heat unevenly so make sure to turn the pan halfway through cooking.

These tips are pretty simple and easy to follow so make sure to not skip out on them. I promise – they really do make a difference!

Iced Bulletproof Turmeric Latte (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

Learn how to make a refreshing and anti-inflammatory Iced Bulletproof Turmeric Latte. It’s a delicious summer drink that’s Whole30 and keto-friendly!

Iced Bulletproof Turmeric Latte

I’m totally an iced latte girl whether it comes to coffee, matcha, or even golden milk! There’s something so delicious and indulgent when a creamy drink is served on ice, it’s almost like milkshake but so much healthier.

Iced Bulletproof Turmeric Latte Recipe

Every time I’m avoiding caffeine when I’m especially stressed out, bulletproof turmeric latte is one my go-to’s in the morning. It’s super tasty, has amazing ani-inflammatory components, and keeps my blood sugar leveled.

What makes bulletproof turmeric latte different from regular latte? It contains healthy fats like butter (or ghee, in my case) and MCT oil. They provide fuel for the brain so you stay extra alert, increase fat burning activities in the body, and gives you a steady dose of energy in the mornings. Not to mention, the latte gets extra creamy and foamy making it super tasty!

What is MCT oil?

MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides, and they are special fatty acids that provide fuel for the body and brain. What’s different about MCT oil than other fatty acids is that they are quickly processed in the liver instead of bypassing the digestive system, making them easily absorbable and great for mental energy and clarity.

Also, if you are on the ketogenic diet, MCTs can be broken down into ketones, which the body can use as energy for fuel rather than glucose. Ketones promote fat-burning activities in the body as well as reduce inflammation. I also personally love it because it contains caprylic acid which have been great for healing my gut and candida issues. Here’s a full list of all the benefits:

  • Improves cognitive function and reduces brain fog
  • Has anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties to fight digestive issues like candida and SIBO
  • Promotes fat burning activities in the body
  • Supports nutrient absorbtion
  • Provides energy for brain and muscles
  • Decreases inflammation

It’s difficult to get a high dose of MCT in our diet (coconut oil is about 62% MCT oils, but about 50% of that is lauric acid, which isn’t considered true MCT) so supplementing with MCT oil is a great way to get in your daily intake, and it’s so easy to do with a delicious drink like this Iced Bulletproof Turmeric Latte!

Choosing Quality MCT Oil

While there are many MCT oil products out there on the market, they are not all made the same. Some of them are not 100% pure, are sourced from unsustainable palm oil or soy-based hexane, or contain genetically modified ingredients.

One of the cleanest and purest MCT oil I’ve found is Perfect Supplement’s Perfect MCT Oil, which is organic and made from non-GMO coconuts. It contains 100% C8 (caprylic acid) and C10 (capris acid) and have been batch tested to ensure that it contains nothing but coconuts.

I love that it really doesn’t taste like anything at all and I can put it in all my morning drinks, whether it’s coffee, matcha, or this delicious Iced Bulletproof Turmeric Latte.

Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

This Whole30 and paleo Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl is low in sugar, packed with gut healing nutrients, and so thick and yummy. 

Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

I know what you are thinking. Bone broth in a smoothie?? What in the actual eff…

I know, I know. But you gotta have some trust because this smoothie bowl is seriously delicious and you cannot taste the bone broth at all.

With all the holiday stress and treats over the past few weeks, my gut is in need of some quality nutrients and healing so I’ve been trying to incorporate as much bone broth into my diet as possible. While this can mean drinking it straight up or incorporating them into soup recipes, I decided to get a bit more creative by making this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl.

Not only is this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl full of nourishing nutrients from the bone broth, both turmeric and ginger are anti-inflammatory and are known superfoods that soothe digestion and immune boosters.

Best of all, this recipe is sweetened and thickened with a cooked sweet potato and I did not find that I needed to add any additional sweeteners, making it Whole30 and sugar detox friendly. However, if you are looking for a bit more sweetness, you can add some honey.

If you are looking to switch up your breakfast routine with a healthy and delicious smoothie, I hope you give this recipe a try. Have fun customizing with your favorite toppings as well. I sprinkled in some frozen blueberries, toasted coconut chips, sliced almonds, and some almond butter, and it was dang tasty!
