Who says we have to suffer...to live a healthy happy vibrant life?

Red wine and dark chocolate... might seem decadent...but these guilty pleasures also might help us live longer...and healthier lives. Red wine and dark chocolate definitely improve an evening..but they also contain resveratrol..which lowers blood sugar. Red wine is a great source of catechins..which boost protective HDL cholesterol. Green tea? Protects your brain..helps you live longer..and soothes your spirit.

Food for Thought, the blog, is about living the good life...a life we create with our thoughts and our choices...and having fun the whole while!

I say lets make the thoughts good ones..and let the choices be healthy...exciting...and delicious! Bon Appetit!

Not your mom's cheesy cauliflower.

Now this is different. And delicious. The nutty flavor of roasted cauliflower contrasts so nicely with the perky lemon zest and capers. Toss 1 head cauliflower (cut into 1-inch florets) with 1 1/2 cups grapes, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons capers, 1 teaspoon each grated lemon zest and kosher salt, and pepper to taste. Garnish with another teaspoon of lemon zest after roasting if desired.
Roast at 450 degrees F, 25 minutes. Midway through, stir the cauliflower to flip it so it browns on several surfaces.
