As you probably know already I’m not a big fan of carbs; my body doesn’t process carbs as good as it should.
It makes me fat.
How should you cut carbs?
There are a few ways but this rule is about cauliflower.
Cauliflower is great as a substitute for potatoes in mashed potatoes,as a substitute for wheat in couscous,as a substitute for dough in pizza and more.
It’s also good for you and has a lot of other reasons why you’d want to eat it, but this time it’s about switching it up; if you want more cauliflower recipes check my IG account @danagatfit

And now recipes!
Bring 2 cups of skimmed milk to a boil with some black pepper in a large pot. Boil one head of cauliflower florets till they're very, very tender. Have a food processor ready; transfer the cauliflower from the cooking milk into the food processor (it's ok if there is some extra liquid; this will help the puree be smooth). Puree until very smooth. You can substitute the milk in water but skim milk is only 80 calories a cups and the flavour is worth it.
Use half a head of cauliflower for this. First, cut it into florets. Place the florets in a food processor, and pulse until the cauliflower resembles couscous. In a pan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil. Sauté the cauliflower with some parsley and season with pepper until the cauliflower is tender but not mushy. You can add steam veggies to give it the “couscous vibe” or just have it like that.
CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST:
Use 1 large head of cauliflower for this. First, cut it into florets. Place the florets in a food processor, and pulse until the cauliflower resembles couscous/rice. Then roast it in the oven for 15 min on 375F. Take a bowl and line cheesecloth on it. Put the cauliflower in it, hold the four corners of it and squeeze, try to let as much liquid out as possible, it should resemble a mash. Use your hand to flatten it out and make pizza crust. Bake on 375F for 15 min. take out and add topping. Bake again until cheese melt.
And that’s it for now. JResearch and writing by Dana Gat ©2014
