Hearts of Palm Salad

Dinner salad with hearts of palm

Hearts of palms are a perfect addition to any salad. They have a great taste, are low in calories and fat but high in nutrients.  This is a picture of the salad that I shared with my husband last night for dinner before we mixed it.

Not only did I use hearts of palm, but I added some of my other favorite vegetables:
purple radicchio, cucumber, artichoke, spring mix, avocado. walnuts, and sunflower seeds. You can use any proportion according to your own tastes and preferences.

Za'atar Spiced Cauliflower Rice

spiced cauliflower rice

I am obsessed with cauliflower rice, and this za'atar (zahtar) spiced recipe is easy and delicious.
I love the taste, texture, and fluffiness of cauliflower rice. 
For me, it is a perfect substitute for regular white rice, which is high in calories, carbohydrates, and high on the glycemic index,  as opposed to cauliflower rice which is low in calories and low in carbohydrates and has a low glycemic index.

Vegan Eggroll in a Bowl

One of the things I love about Chinese egg rolls is the delicious filling. Being gluten free, it's difficult to find egg rolls that I can eat. I did find one brand (Lucky Brand) in the freezer section of some supermarkets that offers a vegan and gluten free choice for only 45 calories per egg roll. However, it's on the pricy side ($6.00 for a package of four small ones),  and its not always available.

Therefore, I decided to make my own Egg Roll in a Bowl which is the newest craze, and its all over Pinterest. It's basically a stir fry that is quick and easy to make, especially if you use a bag of coleslaw mix instead of grating your own cabbage.

Wordless Wednesday- Oleta River State Park

 Oleta River State Park is in South Florida and offers camping, hiking, kayaking, bicycling for sport. There is also a lagoon type beach that is calm as a lake. It is located in North Miami and very close to the beach.

Last week when my older son and his family was visiting we hiked one day and kayaked another day. Here are some of our photos.
