What I Ate This Week | Cauliflower & Kalamata Olives, Two Ways!

This post really should be called What I Ate This Week & A Half because some of these meals are from last week. And then this week I was so sick that I didn’t eat much at all. Which was amazing for my diet! I know I’m really sick when my husband asks, “I’m going…
