So in an effort to be more ROOTED in Muladhara (Root Chakra…see what I did there? I’m funny…) I thought I would prepare a meal that would be “of the earth”.
I started with BEETS because they are totally a root. Like 100%.
It actually wasn’t that bad lol but it wasn’t that good either.
So instead, I wrapped the beets in tin foil, drizzled some olive oil and seasonings and slid them into the over at 450 for an hour (or until you can slide a knife through it easily).
While that was cooking, I started in on the cauliflower. It’s SUPER easy which is the most important thing for me.
Cauliflower is also an earthy vegetable and I thought it would be appropriate for a meal centered around Muladhara.
I boil the cauliflower until it’s easily mashable. Then I pop it in the blender and sprinkle with a little garlic powder. Blend it until it’s to the consistency of mashed potatoes! My son hates veggies and he has NO IDEA. It’s actually really good! I of course put a little gravy over the top to tie it altogether.
The meatloaf is the same recipe from my Hot Mess Meatloaf, but I substituted the ground beef with ground turkey. It’s still super delicious and lower calories. Win-win.
So the verdict????
It was good, grounded and totally got me feeling rooty! Mom for the win!
