"Eventually you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is."

Quote from Mr. Gary Zukov.
I don't know if you have read any of his books, but I think they might be worth some of your time.

Happy Friday to all and just in case you are not doing anything around 3pm E.S.T, go ahead and cheer on the "Orange Machine". Holland vs. France.

Mashed Cauliflower

Mashed cauliflower is so easy to make and so tasty. This is how I do it. I boil the cauliflower, while that is boiling, on very low heat I melt some butter with 1 or 2 cloves finely minced garlic. If you have chives add them. I have not grown those in a while and I can't seem to find them here anywhere. When the cauliflower softens up (don't kill it) drain and mash it up. Then add the garlic butter and mix. You can add a tbsp of half and half or heavy cream if you want to be real naughty. Sprinkle of sea salt if you are so inclined. About 10-15 minutes total time. Easy right?
Some cucumber salad with evoo and a few slices of chicken sausage.

Like I have said before, you can make delicious tasting dishes, cooking with healthy paleo/primal foods.

Here's breakfast;
Before I hit the gym, I marinated some chicken in fresh lime juice. This actually starts the cooking process (like ceviche). When I came home, I took my cast iron skillet, washed some scallions, tossed some spices on the chicken and put it in the skillet. Turn on the broiler for the oven, and after a bout 5 minutes on the stove, stick it under the broiler for another 5. During those five minutes, I grabbed some sour cream, cut up a small clove of garlic and mixed that with a few drops of spicy avocado oil and some more juice from a lime. This all took no more than about 12 minutes. Take a look;

I had some fresh melon with this breakfast also.
Have a great weekend everyone!

The food looks almost as good as the Orange Machine looked dismantling the French today! :-)

Your food looks awesome! Well based on my life and choices the last few weeks (about 4 or so), I need to get back on track majorly. My eating has been a tad naughty, although mostly quantity wise. Although I did eat cheesecake today at my daughter's baby (me grandbaby) party. Over 125 ppl probably came and went in my house!! I am wiped but it was awesome. I do throw good parties!

Btw, are you coming to NY?

Dear Marc,

Could you please,please , pretty please show what you take with you for lunch (say, a week's worth)? I can manage dinner, but when it comes to lunch I am drawing blank beyond salads. Thank you.
Another admirer.
PS. Also, I am newly single and adjusting to this diet. Obviously, I am used to cooking much bigger portions. Just how much meat and other produce do you usually buy for one person for the week? Thanks!
