Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce
If you thought Alfredo sauce was a diet no-no, think again. The creative addition of cauliflower thickens up the sauce while cutting down on the amount of carbs and calories found in traditional Alfredo sauces.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5-6 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese.

Directions
In a skillet over medium heat, saute the butter and garlic for 30-60 seconds. Bring 7 cups of water to a boil in a large pan and add the cauliflower, cooking for about 7 minutes. Add the cauliflower and 1 cup of water from the pot, and then add the butter, garlic, milk, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Next, pour the sauce into a saucepan over medium heat and add the cheese, stirring until it's melted and completely combined. Serve over a plate of pasta and enjoy.

Pineapple Salsa 
This sweet and tangy salsa is delicious with tortilla chips or on top of tacos and burritos. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 can pineapple chunks 
  • 1/4 yellow onion, chopped 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 tomato, roughly chopped 
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • Dash of lime juice.
