For the Love of Cauliflower

For the Love of Cauliflower

on with No Comments

After several weeks of my low-carb diet, I have started to get bored with the same old meals. I’ve decided to experiment with new ways and one ingredient I never thought I would enjoy… CAULIFLOWER! I’ve never been able to eat it like my mother, cold with a side of veggie dip. Yuck!!  However, lately I keep hearing about this new craze about a cauliflower crust instead of your usual flour pizza crust. Sparked my interest so I gave it a try.  Women Cook

First attempt failed but in the making, I did come up with a great side dish.

  • 1 head of cauliflower (chopped in a food processor)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Push flat on greased cookie sheet and cook at 450 for 20min.

One step that I didn’t do well enough was you MUST squeeze the cauliflower to get the water out! I used a paper towel but didn’t get enough out to make it a flat-bread style. Instead, it reminded me more like cheesy grits! Haha, it was SOO yummy and I will definitely be making it again.

No picture for now as I totally messed it up but I’ll give it another go soon!

P.S. Was it just me, or did anyone else not know there was such a thing as PURPLE cauliflower? So cool!

The countdown continues to my competition and Sunday is always the day to take care of business: grocery shopping and weekly food prep! Planning all your meals in advance can be challenging. Ask me two years ago I would have said I wouldn’t touch a “left-over” meal, but today that is how I keep to my clean-eating lifestyle. Sunday food prep is a must and I have found cleaver ways to mix it up with my limited menu options.

Women Cook

Breakfast 1: (cooked after my workout)

2 eggs, tomato, grass-fed cheese, spinach, and onion mix

– Mix all together and heat in microwave! Simple as that

Meal 1: (makes roughly 4 servings)

5 oz Chicken Breast w/ Broccoli Slaw, Mushrooms & onion mix

– Cut up chicken into bite size pieces, cook with 1 tbsp of coconut oil, add seasonings to taste

– Set aside and cook onions, mushrooms until soft in 1/2tbs coconut oil. Add broccoli slaw

– So easy it takes me less than 20min!

Meal 2: (makes roughly 3 servings)

6 oz Ground Turkey w/ Broccoli, Snap Peas, Mushrooms and Salsa

– Cooked turkey in 1 tbsp of olive oil, added some simple seasonings for flavor

– Set aside and cook veggies on skillet in 1 tbsp olive oil

– Add 2 tbsp of salsa and ENJOY!

Remaining 2-3 meals each day I usually repeat the food I already prepped (meal 1 & 2) or cook up something simple like fish and more veggies. Evening snack will include Protein shake and almonds.

There you have it! Simple cooking 11 weeks out from contest. Hope to continue to see changes this week as I am going to ramp up my daily cardio and continue to lift heavy each morning.

Happy Monday!
