Seasonal cooking is the best, and you don’t have any bad feelings as to what you are eating!

Control is of the essence, get the control and eat healthy, for the life of me, I don’t understand how we trust people in the food industry so much! 

Why do we eat with so much ease everything they offer us! We take better care of our car than we do with our bodies, as you can see I am very passionate about the subject!

Ah, the pleasure of cooking and baking our own food, the peace of mind and satisfaction!It is work, I give you that, to decide what to cook, to get to the market, to bring everything home, cook and clean up, yes I know you are tired, especially if you work full time!

But stop and think, for just one moment, nothing worthwhile is accomplished with no effort!

Here is my delicious cauliflower and potato soup!

 

You will need:

1 beautiful head of cauliflower cut in pieces

2 big onions sliced

4 celery stalks cut up

¼ cup olive oil

1 cup tomato sauce

2 cups chicken broth

Salt, pepper, garlic salt, and ½ Tsp sugar

4 cups water

1 cup cream

Here is how to make my cauliflower and potato soup!

In a heavy cooking pot add the oil and the onions.

Sauté for a few minutes just to sweat the onions

Add the rest of the vegetables and continue a little bit longer.

Now add the wet ingredients, except the cream.

Season the soup and let simmer on medium heat for 30 minutes.

At this point, if the soup needs a little more water add some more!

Just before it’s done add the cream, cook just a couple of minutes more and you are ready to puree your soup using a hand blender, you need to have a nice creamy consistency!

Your cauliflower and potato soup is ready!

Grilled sweet potatoe salad

Love this salad,  different and very delicious! Very healthy to say the least! Dynamite in flavor and taste this grilled sweet potato salad is! Please don’t forget the cinnamon in the salad dressing.The salad becomes a stellar salad, five-star salad!

The health benefits are too numerous to mention, so here are just a few

“Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and, due to their orange color, are high in carotenoids,”

Sweet potatoes are my best friends, they cook easy, they are very healthy and delicious, children love them, how can you go wrong with sweet potatoes!

They control blood sugar, they have anti-inflammatory properties and the list goes on and on!

In many countries like Greece, they are expensive, but try to have them at least once a week, believe me, worth every penny if you ask me.

They pack so much goodness, it’s unbelievable!

You will love how easy it is to make and the flavor is phenomenal!

Great with a BBQ, add a little protein like a piece of chicken or fish and you have a complete meal!
