One of the questions I’m frequently asked about following an oil-free diet is “What do I use on baked potatoes or steamed vegetables or grits if I don’t eat butter or margarine?” Sometimes I mention salsa or mushroom gravy or the sauce from my Mac and Cheeze as options, but from now on, I’ll point people to this, my family’s new favorite all-purpose sauce. That’s right, all of us–including my picky teenager–prefer this cauliflower-based sauce to our old cheesy sauce.

It also saves you money if you are on a budget. If you prefer to use the package seasoning, simply replace it with the spices listed here.

Pregnancy is definitely a time when snacking is encouraged. It is almost like eating like a kid again, because instead of just eating 3 meals and maybe a snack, it feels like you are eating every few hours.

We have 15 ideas that can be just as satisfying as the biggest handful of chocolate chips.
I have a few “mom idols” that I am constantly watching to see how they can be so awesome. One of them is my sister in law, Beth. Beth has 5 kids and is great about getting a healthy and affordable meal on the table for dinner. Sometimes, none of the 5 kids complain about what she prepared! I asked her to send over one of her families favorite healthy dinners, and she sent me Asian Lettuce Wraps to try. I made them last night for my family and we all loved them! I had about 6 wraps myself and can’t wait to make them again! So here is her delicious recipe that you must save! Click on the “Add To Recipe Box” above so you can find it again easily.
