It has been a good couple of weeks. I am trying to get back on track with my workouts and a good healthy diet.  I’ve always been consistent with workouts, in fact I can overdo a bit but the results are definitely well worth it.  Although my parents beg to differ, they hate to see the skinny me.  Food, on the other hand is something I love too much to be eating less portions and healthy all the time.  So I have to come up with tasty alternative which are liked by all.  I am so glad that my boys are into salads and smoothies.  

This was our light dinner for the day, with a cantaloupe smoothie (cantaloupe, strawberry, and coconut water).   

I know I roasted the bazookas out of the broccoli, but trust me, they tasted like they were fried. You could make a big portion of the dressing and use it as a sauce to make your favorite stir fry, or you could just use it as a dip for appetizers.

2.  Take a large bowl and add the florets in it.  Sprinkle tapioca flour, corn flour and salt evenly on top of florets.  Cover the bowl with a pate and shake it out so the flours distribute evenly.  You could also use a Ziploc to mix it in.

4.  Mix all the ingredients for the dressing until there are no lumps.  Pour in a small sauce pan and simmer it for couple of minutes or until slightly thickened. Set aside and cool.
5. Arrange the roasted florets on a flat bottomed plate, pour  pour the dressing over, and garnish with sesame seeds.
