Roasted Bok Choy is a simple healthy way to enjoy your vegetables. Roasted with coconut oil and topped with fresh lemon, tamari and spicy red pepper flakes gives you a dish with an asian flair that goes well with your weeknight dinner.
I usually don’t follow a lot of television shows. Mostly because I love to read and by the time the day is winding down all I want to do is relax with a good book. However, this fall I am totally sucked in by this seasons ‘The Voice’.
I mean they are all so damn good, it is amazing! Of course the fact that I love Pharrell and Blake helps, but really the contestants are truly amazing. Once I think I have a favorite another singer comes on and they sing their heart out and they become my favorite! Right now I am between Alisan Porter on Christina’s team, and Laith from Adam’s team. OH wait I also really like Hannah on team Pharrell. Oh I don’t know they are all so good.
How about you do you watch The Voice? If so who is your favorite?
