Within one of my Fat Loss Fast Track groups the other day we were talking about the deliciousness, versatility & ease of cauliflower. We were sharing our favorite ways to use it and I thought, I’ve got to put together a blog with my favorite cauliflower options! So, here we go! Seven of my favorite ways to prepare cauliflower!
Not only is cauliflower tasty, versatile and easy, it’s also incredibly fat loss friendly! Dude, does it get better than that? It’s probably my 2nd favorite veggie after brussels sprouts. Sorry cauli, brussels will always be my #1!
Cauliflower belongs to the family of cruciferous vegetables. While that’s perhaps a helpful trivia fact, it doesn’t mean much to the average Joe. Here’s what you need to know about cauliflower:
- It’s fantastic for detoxification
- It helps with hormone balance and menstrual regularity
- It can act as an anti-inflammatory (this is important for all of us, whether you feel inflamed or not)
- It supports bacterial balance
- It’s a great source of fiber
- It’s loaded with vitamins & minerals
Maybe you don’t like cauliflower and that’s okay. First and foremost: don’t eat foods you don’t love, period. I’m not trying to talk you into eating something you don’t love. In fact, that breaks my most important food rule: eat foods you love that love you back.
However, before you write off cauliflower, check out these different ways to prepare cauliflower because you might find one you really love!
The sky is really the limit here in terms of how you prepare it and the types of things it can be incorporated into. I’ve used cauliflower in tacos, salads, pizzas and so much more.
So here are some of my favorite ways to prepare cauliflower. If you’ve got one I didn’t mention, let me know in the comments!
- Cilantro lime cauliflower rice (I love this with spicy chicken)
- Stuffed peppers or stuffed cabbage
- Cauliflower tortillas
- Mashed cauliflower
- Cauliflower pizza crust
- Roasted head of cauliflower
- Cauliflower soup
Of course you don’t have to get fancy! You can eat it raw with guacamole or chop it to throw into salads or tacos. Use your imagination & have fun with your food, just don’t forget: eat foods you love that love you back!
