Our bodies have different tissues full with excellent microbes that help us fight the bad ones. It is so important that we take care and preserve this kind, helpful and faithful bacteria, so we can have an army of healthy tiny micro bio-soldiers for the attack of the bad ones when necessary.

Flavanols promote the production of nitric oxide, which relaxes the blood vessels and enhances blood flow. This helps lower blood pressure and ultimately enhances heart health.

These flavanols can also increase insulin sensitivity and possibly cut down diabetes risk.

The other important nutrients include iron, magnesium, pper, zinc, and phosphorus – all of which contribute to your overall health (including cancer prevention).

Butter Lemon Garlic Shrimp

This is the perfect meal for busy weeknights! 

 

butter garlic shrimp

 

It is quickly marinated in the bright flavors of lemon zest and lemon juice, savory garlic and spicy red chile pepper flakes. After being skewered and quickly cooked on a hot grill, they’re slathered in a compound butter which mirrors the flavors in the marinade. It’s true what they say – big things do come in small packages!

 

Butter Lemon Garlic Shrimp Wonderful Recipe to Enjoy Eating - A #374 10

 

If you want a little extra of that buttery sauce to serve with some couscous or pasta, just double up on the butter and lemon. Add some fresh steamed asparagus, and you will have a complete meal in no time that the whole family will love!

 

This lemon garlic shrimp recipe is definitely one of the easiest and quickest made from-scratch dinners you could make. Trust me, the flavor definitely beats a package of plain old ramen or fast food, so go with this instead when you have the urge to just grab something quick.

Food Art for a Beautiful Relaxing Sunday – A #369

0 votes

FOOD ART

Creating wonderful art with nature is a masterpiece for the eyes to admire. It looks so good, would you eat it?

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY:

Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was the first artist in the modern era to think of the preparation and consumption of food as art. The avant-garde Futurist movement, formed by Marinetti and other artists in Milan in 1909, embraced the industrial age and all things mechanical—from automobiles and planes to manufacturing methods and city planning. They thought cooking and dining, so central to everyone’s day-to-day lives, should also be central to their farsighted, far-out ideals.

EXOTIC CAULIFLOWER FOOD DISH

Cauliflower plant is the edible vegetable part that is called ‘Head’ or ‘Curd’. Botanically this curd is a white ‘inflorescence meristem’. This means that it is not a fully formed flower, it is a tissue which is supposed to form flowers. Cauliflower curd does not have typical sepals, petals, anthers and ovary, therefore there is no question of any pollination, fertilization or fruit-seed formation.

BAKED CAULIFLOWER AU GRATIN A LA VOLCANO

Exotic Cauliflower has only 25 calories and 3 grams of fiber per cup It is an excellent choice for anyone watching their waistline. Along with its low sugar content, cauliflower has a glycemic index of just 15. It also has an excellent high amount of protein content for a vegetable (19% of calories are from protein). Cauliflower is both filling and nutritious.

Delicious Exotic Cauliflower Food Dish Au Gratin 2.0 Enjoy! 32

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.

  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Slowly pour in milk, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Simmer until sauce is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in processed cheese, heavy cream, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and Italian seasoning.

  3. Prick whole cauliflower in several places with a fork. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook, uncovered, until slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Drain.

  4. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion; cook and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add potato, carrot, red bell peppers, peas, and green beans. Season with salt. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables start to release their moisture, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in 1 teaspoon crushed black peppercorns.

  5. Transfer vegetables to prepared baking dish. Place whole cauliflower in the center. Pour some sauce over cauliflower; fold remaining sauce in with vegetables. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Scatter Parmesan cheese on top. Sprinkle remaining 2 teaspoons peppercorns over cheese.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 20 minutes.
