Recipe: Roasted BROccoli

April 02, 2015


“What’s the best diet?”


This is one of the most common questions I get asked. Jon Smith and Jane Doe have tried every single diet known on the intra-web and can’t seem to lose weight. The issue here lies not in what diet is best, but the expectations of the plan. When expectations are not met, i.e. losing less than Billy Beltbuster on ‘reality tv’, many times we move on to something else instead of evaluating what could be done with your current plan. The recipe below can be added to any diet. If you’re Paleo I’ve heard cashew cheese is pretty good. If you’re worried this recipe has too much protein split the serving in half and grab a bagel… Let’s EAT!


Roasted BROccoli

1 Full Head of Broccoli
2 cups Fat Free Cheese
2 Chicken Breasts
4 Chicken Sausage Links
1 Whole Bell Pepper
1/2 Onion
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
Sriracha (Optional)




Preheat oven to 350. Panfry or grill chicken breasts and chicken sausage. Chop the cooked meat into small bite size chunks, along with the bell pepper and onion. Fill a large casserole dish with a single layer of broccoli heads, bell pepper, and onion pieces. Add the meat chunks, drizzle with olive oil and seasoning of your choice. Top with the cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the broccoli is browning. For softer broccoli, try adding a few tablespoons of water and baking covered for a few minutes longer. Optionally add Sriracha on top.
