Hello & Happy Thursday!!







With out wedding in less than 10 days of been gravitating towards more and more effortless eats as I’m struggling to find the time for longer recipes. 


Sometimes, the best recipes are the easiest!


As a whole, I love Spanish inspired foods. They pack flavor, heat, typically lime and cilantro, and is just my cup of tea through and through. 


If I had to say what my fave vegetable is, it’s cauliflower


You can roast it, make a pizza, make a sauce, make bites of all varieties and you can make cauliflower rice, which is a million more times filling than the standard rice as it packs more fiber, and more nutrients to boot!









What I love about this dish is that its effortless, can be made in bulk, affordable, has multiple texture, heat, avocado, high in protein, high in fiber, and is great for entertaining!




If you love Spanish eats, effortless eats, or just like to eat..
