Description:
How simple is this make and it is such a great way to use these amazing veggies.

Broccoli and cauliflower are members of the cruciferous family of vegetables that includes cabbage, turnips, rutabaga, kale, bok choy, Brussels sprouts and mustard greens. The nutritional value of broccoli and cauliflower combined with its low calories make these vegetables a must have on any healthy eating plan.
There is a high level of vitamin C in broccoli. Broccoli is also packed with vitamin A, beta carotene, B vitamins especially B3 and B5, folic acid, phosphorus, potassium, iron, chromium, which is an easily absorbed form of calcium, zinc and lots of fiber. It's also loaded with carotenoids - antioxidants that are thought to help with weight loss.

Cauliflower is at its best from December through March when it is in season and most plentiful in your local markets. Cauliflower contains allicin, which can improve heart health and reduce the risk of strokes, and selenium, a chemical that works well with Vitamin C to strengthen the immune system. Cauliflower can also help to maintain a healthy cholesterol level.

Wellness Tip
Restless Leg Syndrome
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that has been making big headlines lately. At rest, the sufferer's legs often feel uncomfortable, and he/she may have a very strong urge to move. If you think you may have RLS, see a health care provider; don't diagnose yourself. Once they have ruled out other conditions and diagnosed you with RLS, it can be managed. Techniques include taking a warm bath before bedtime, sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees, and avoiding both alcohol and caffeine, especially before going to bed.

Recipe
Chocolate Avocado Pudding (Paleo,Vegan)
Category: Desserts
Description: This chocolate avocado pudding is creamy, delicious, and healthy! A great way to get your chocolate fix in a healthier way!
Have you heard of chocolate avocado pudding? Have you wondered if it would actually be good? Recently I noticed we had a few extra ripe avocados, I decided to give it a whirl. Literally. In my new blender. I didn’t have a recipe, I just pulled a few ingredients out and blended them up, and surprise! Chocolate avocado pudding is good. Very good, actually.

It looks just like regular chocolate pudding, and you can’t taste the avocado, it just adds a really nice creaminess. And of course it adds some nice nutritional benefits as well, like lots of good, healthy fats.
Dessert without the guilt.

Some tips about this chocolate avocado pudding:

You do need to make sure that the avocado is perfectly ripe. An under ripe avocado won’t work, because it won’t be able to be blended down into a creamy consistency, and an overripe avocado also won’t work, because it won’t taste good.
You need the avocado to be just right. No brown spots or streaks inside – don’t try it – it won’t work!
If you taste the pudding, and you think it needs more sweetener, or more cocoa, go ahead and add some. Use your own judgement.
