Healthy Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust I was planning to share a quinoa, kale and tofu skillet recipe this morning, however plans changed after I had one bite of the pizza I made last night for dinner. Don’t get me wrong, the kale and tofu dish is great (I’ll still post the recipe sometime this week). However, this pizza isn’t your average pie and judging from the response I got when I posted an Instragram photo on Facebook last night, the recipe needed to be shared right away.

Baked Onion Rings These turned out amazing! I was skeptical when I found this recipe on Gina’s Skinny Recipes since they are baked rather than fried, but we loved them! They took little to no effort and taste very similar to the Bloomin’ Onion at Outback…just without all the grease! We paired these with our leftovers from the short ribs made last night and enjoyed BBQ sandwiches. The only change I would make would be to use a smaller onion because I found if it is too large the rings are harder to coat with bread crumbs. They still turned out fantastic though!

If you're craving something sweet and chocolaty, using plant-based protein powder mixed into the batter offers more protein than regular vegan brownies, but you won't taste any difference.
