Riced Broccoli and Cauliflower Veggie Muffins

Using pre-packaged riced broccoli and cauliflower makes cooking up a batch of these healthy veggie muffins a breeze! They are perfect to use as an appetizer for a party along with a dip or a great healthy side to prep for lunches or dinners during the week!


Have you guys seen the new bags of riced broccoli that Trader Joe's has in stock? Riced cauliflower has been all the rage for awhile now...but riced broccoli?!? Now that was something I had never seen before.  As a self proclaimed veggie fan, I knew that after a recent trip to Trader Joe's I just HAD to give this stuff a try.


I'll be honest...I originally was going to try and make some kind of baked "tot" with the broccoli but I tried to make it a little more healthy by slimming down some of the fatty ingredients commonly found in veggie tots (cheese and breadcrumbs!!!) but then I ultimately failed at the whole tot forming process. This was a big disappointment as I had planned to film a great little insta-story of my broccoli tots singing "tots, tots, tots, tots, tots, tots, tots, tots" to the tune of the "shots" song by LMFAO...sigh. The best laid plans.


But fear not! Since my veggie mixture lacked tot forming capabilities I just threw 'um cupcake liners and added some egg whites so the macros/nutritional info for each of these bites became even HIGHER in protein AND they bacamee easier to make.  Cause who realllly wants to take the time to roll out 20 little tots when you can just throw it in a cupcake tray and call it a day. I fully promote healthy eating...in the easiest way possible!


Thanksgiving Outfit Plans with Catch Bliss Boutique

As I prepared for Thanksgiving this year I planned two specific things: what food item I was going to make for each Thanksgiving meal I went to, and what I was going to wear to stuff my face all day long and still be comfortable :)


I'm making Greek yogurt pumpkin parfaits for an early brunch/lunch Thanksgiving with my family, a raw brussel sprout salad for dinner at my boyfriends family's house, and I'm wearing this adorable little outfit to both events!


The most important part when outfit planning for Thanksgiving? LEGGINGS!!!! Hahaha. There is no way I wanted to be stuck in pants while I would be going to TWO different Thanksgiving meals within 5 hours. Gulp.

Luckily I have a pair of basic brown leggings that I could pair with my new Jaden Top I just got from  Catch Bliss Boutique. Paired with some cute brown boots and this darcy bow belt I'm all ready for a day of feasting while still being comfortable!


I love how versatile this top is:  I can switch up the whole look by swapping out the brown leggings for some khakis, adding some little booties and throwing on a fun scarf!
