Let’s all take a moment to embrace the fact that the idea of eating cauliflower is super boring.
Ok, now that that’s been addressed, let me say that I’ve recently lost 20 pounds.
Thank you, for what I imagine is your cyber-congratulations, and let me tell you that it is solely due to my recent increase in cauliflower consumption.
Alright, that’s not true at all. It’s mainly been due to a very slight increase in physical activity coupled with the fact that I’ve stopped eating like an asshole… or rather like a six year old.
I simply can’t eat the same foods that my six year old and two year old can. Who knew?! Apparently our metabolisms are set on completely different cycles, and in order for me to lose weight I’m going to need to eat less pasta and more what do you call them? Oh yeah, vegetables.
Here’s one of the first steps I took in my plan to regain control of my body: Cauliflower Rice.
It couldn’t be easier to learn how to make; and it takes the place of (not only) rice but also grits! Yes, for all of you shrimp & grits lovers out there, this is the perfect cheat for you. Cauliflower also scores a big win for being super boring. That’s right! Having a, let’s just say, less than lively flavor profile actually works in cauliflower’s favor here. It’s sort of like the potato of veggies… wait a minute, never mind.
It’s sort of like potato’s friendly cousin with a good personality.
However you look at it, Cauliflower Rice can be flavored in almost any number of ways to fit virtually any dish, and it’s not going to add to your waistline the way that rice, pasta, or potatoes would. And for a friendly cousin with a good personality, I’d say that more than exceeds expectations.
