I switched it up a bit this morning. I drank Basil Water (not lemonade this time) before I had my coffee. I also drank only 1 cup of coffee...Mostly because I was running late to get to work. Breakfast of course was Oatmeal!
Lunch on the other had was AMAZING!!! I'm eating meat again in moderation. I was inspired by Michelle at The Purple Pumkin. She shared this amazing Brussels Sprout Gratin. I made my usual tweaks and we LOVED it!
Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon
3 pounds washed Brussels Sprouts, ends removed and halved
8 ounces Bacon, cooked but not crispy
small handful of fresh garlic, chopped
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
1/4 cup mayo
1/2 cup greek yogurt (or sour cream)
1/2 cup water (or milk)
salt and pepper
Mix the mayo, greek yogurt, water and spices in a bowl.
Add in brussels sprouts, cooked bacon, garlic and mix thoroughly. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and place in a large casserole pan.
Bake at 400 for approx 30 minutes.
I served the Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon with Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower...Recipe coming tomorrow!
