Cauliflower & Pomegranate Salad

Cauliflower & Pomegranate Salad

A recipe from our Weight Management App that is loaded with many minerals, vitamins and is a thermogenic (metabolism-boosting) powerhouse. Cauliflower is an excellent source of thermogenic vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and even contains some choline. However, it's the sulfur compound called indole-3-carbinol (i3C) that gives cauliflower its thermogenic effects. Pomegranate contains many minerals and vitamins including potassium, magnesium, folate and a good dose of thermogenic vitamin C. Eating pomegranate fruit whole rather than in juice form, is most beneficial for weight loss.

Stuffed Butternut Squash with Tempeh

I usually for butternut squash with a long neck and a small bulb so that you get the most squash and the least amount of seeds. For this recipe, I want the opposite—a larger cavity for filling and just a little squash to add to my stuffing.
