Roast Cauliflower with Vegan Cheese & Beans

Another recipe from our cooking show, Eat Well Be Happy. Of course you get more nutritional bang for your buck when you eat organic, and I personally won’t eat any cruciferous vegetables (the family that includes cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, radishes, etc.) unless it’s grown organically because they are so heavily sprayed with pesticides.

Roasting cauliflower yields results that are delish. When tossed with extra virgin olive oil and spices, the florets get crispy and brown where they touch the hot roasting pan. The resulting flavor is sweet and nutty, too.

Why nutritional yeast? It’s the richest source of the B-vitamins, the nerve and stress vitamins. It helps prevent the breakdown of collagen in the skin. When combined with any nut or seed and salt, it tastes, I kid you not, just like parmesan cheese! Nutritional yeast will not feed or cause candida. No, it will not!

Don’t Get Sick!

Are you just an “average person” who doesn’t want to get sick? Here are three things you can do every day.

  1. Take NAC. NAC is short for n-acetyl cysteine. It’s a natural amino acid derivative, and one of the most versatile, good-for-you nutrients on the planet. NAC protects the liver and lungs, neutralizes toxins, repairs erosion in the GI tract, and even quells compulsive behavior by clearing excess neurotransmitters from the brain.

This is not exaggeration. Everything is supported by solid research. I take NAC daily.

NAC has also proven itself as a flu-preventer. In one study out of Italy, elderly men were given 600 mg of NAC twice a day, or placebo, over a winter season. Those who received the NAC were two-thirds less likely to report flu symptoms during the study period, even though blood tests showed they were exposed to the flu virus at the same rate.
