Whole Roasted Romanesco

I’m in love with romanesco! This beautiful vegetable, which almost looks like green cauliflower but tastes like a mild broccoli is not a blend of those vegetables. The romanesco has been grown in Italy since the 16th century. Bright green in color, the head forms a striking fractal pattern at first glance. While it resembles…

Setting My First Target

I like to break my weight loss targets into increments. Big enough to feel significant, small enough to be achievable in the short run. Usually between 5-10 pound increments.
