Hope you are all having a fantastic time! 🙂
My mind has been booming with so much inspiration that it gets me so overwhelmed sometimes–but like the saying goes, “When you are overwhelmed, give thanks that you are not underwhelmed.” So, Thank you.
One of the things I want to improve on this year is my diet. Though I can say my diet is pretty good and do not consist of a lot of junk, I aim to consume more plant-based food from now on.
I have been experimenting with plant-based food for a couple years now but wasn’t really able to dive into it as much as I wanted to. Now, it is a lot easier as mu husband is now Pescetarian.
So let’s get to it! Today I am sharing:
Cauliflower is fantastic in so many ways. It is low in calories which helps those wanting to lose weight. In addition, it has a high amount of anti-oxidants, is a great source of fiber, and has anti-inflammatory properties. (just to name a few!) If you’d like to learn more about Cauliflower, click HERE.
I absolutely LOVE the versatility of this vegetable! Growing up, I only enjoyed it one way–with cheese. However, as I mature and learn more about the wonders of good food, this veggie easily became one of my favorites.
Below are 5 awesome ways you can enjoy cauliflower. Please note that these recipes are not mine–I only tried them! 🙂 Click the photo to be directed to the original poster.
- MEAT SUBSTITUTE
Omg.. My husband and I have tried this recipe twice already since last year and has been a big hit! I love how it is easy to make and was very filling!
I still love my real fried rice but this is a very good alternative if you’re in a low carb diet and/or just want to boost fiber and protein intake 🙂
- PIZZA CRUST
I still have yet to try this one but among the cauli crust recipes I’ve looked at, this one stood out most because of the chia seeds added in them!! 🙂 (In case you don’t already know yet, I’m a sucker for chia seeds! Read: Favorite 5: Things To Do With Chia Seeds)
- ALFREDO SAUCE
I’ve personally made this sauce a few times and always enjoyed it. I love eating pasta and knowing my sauce is super healthy makes the experience even better! Also very easy to make! You can’t go wrong with that 🙂
There are many ways to incorporate cauliflower as dessert but this one is chocolate mousse! Who would have thought? I made my own version that you can see on IG 🙂
These are just some ideas on how we can eat more vegetables everyday–cauliflower in this case. I’m very grateful that eating healthier is now extremely enjoyable! Do you see yourself trying out any of these recipes anytime soon? If so, which one? Share with me in the comments below! 🙂
