I’ve been patiently waiting for my supplements to kick in and boost my energy levels, but it’s time for my diet to also do its part so I made a couple dishes today in big batches which include cauliflower. Cauliflower can help promote energy levels and having lots of leftovers on hand is helpful for when I feel too tired to cook…which I feel has been more often than not. Ken’s been doing a lot of the cooking lately but on nights like this when he is working late I need to step up.

The first dish I made today was another cauliflower cheese recipe. It was so simple and perfect over riced broccoli, which is a great makeover of broccoli and cheese. I plan on throwing in some canned chicken for lunch tomorrow and have a super easy meal full of vitamins and protein.

The next dish I made was a makeover of an already lightened up version of jambalaya. You’ll see I have the nutritional information at the bottom of the page. I have no idea where I got this recipe but I’ve had it for at least 10 years. I made a full batch of the original recipe for Ken, and another for me which uses cauliflower instead of rice and I omitted the sausage. It seems like a lot of work to make two separate versions, but this recipe is so simple it was barely anymore work than doing one.

Ken’s batch, which is made to the specifications of this recipe.

Mine starts with browning the chicken…

Then removing the chicken and adding in vegetables…

Once the vegetables have cooked for a minute, add back in the chicken and the rest of the ingredients.

That’s it- just wait until the liquid has absorbed, about 25 minutes.
