I use to think plant based meat was healthy. After doing some research, I found grass fed beef is the better, healthier choice. Below you will find some of my recipes I have created. At the time I used plant based meat. Now, I prefer to use grass fed beef.
Tip: Never buy farm fresh shrimp it is filled with chemicals. Always when buying any seafood buy Wild Caught and preferably in U.S.

1 package of fresh broccoli , rinsed and chopped up
1 box of Risotto Porcini Mushroom Rice- organic-non-gmo-gluten free (martins)

Gluten Free Flour- I have used many brands. One currently using is GrainFree Paleo Baking Flour by King Arthur-Gluten Free and Non-GMO
Line a cookie sheet with foil drizzle some EVOO onto pan. Add your cauliflower and drizzle over with hot sauce and garlic powder to coat each cauliflower. Bake at 350-375 for about 30-35 minutes. You do not want it crunchy but not too soft. Let cool for few minutes. Then coat each cauliflower with your flour and fry up in EVOO until its brown and crispy. Serve! It is really good! Enjoy!
