Matcha green tea goodness

Oh my goodness....this is my new favorite green tea!!  I found it at Sprouts.  Green tea works as a cancer fighter, metabolism booster and a diuretic. The mixture of flavors in this tea make it so yummy that NO sweetener is necessary.  BONUS!!  Read up on all the benefits and enjoy a cup.

Roasted cabbage

This is our new fav in our house!!  Everyone loves it.  That says a lot seeing there are 6 of us that range in age from 4-40 something. 😜

I've seen some recipes where they've named it cabbage steaks.  I like that name so I'm sticking with it!!  Cabbage steaks it is!!

I cut the cabbage 1 inch thick.  No more than 1 inch thick or it will not cook thoroughly. Drizzle some olive oil on top, add some minced garlic on top, sea salt 
and pepper.  

Bake on 350 for 40 minutes. Voila!  I make a couple heads on Sunday and put it in the fridge for easy grab and warm up sides thru out the week for dinner sides!

You're welcome. 😜

Lunch ideas

Here are some lunch ideas that I have packed for my 4, 7, 13 and 14 year old.  You can surely use them for yourselves too. 😊
