Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

I love love love traditional hummus, but chickpeas tear up my gut. Wah wah. I started making this dip when I transitioned to a paleo diet a few years ago to satisfy my former vegan self and love of hummus . It’s made with roasted garlic and caulifower, tahini, lemon and cumin. It’s basically pure magic (thanks roasted garlic). Dip veggies and crackers, smear it on a piece of gf bread or eat it with a spoon— however you choose to hummus.

Stuffed Dates (and why you should eat them during pregnancy!)

Stuffed Dates (and why you should eat them during pregnancy!)

Dates are a quick source of energy, from their high carbohydrate content and they also contain beneficial B vitamins, iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium, and saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. The presence of these vitamins, minerals and fatty acids help with prostaglandin production (an important kick starter for labor) and also influence the production and response to oxytocin receptors in the uterus.
