So you’ve got the hang of the no refined white carbs thing. Bread, rice, pasta, you name it, they’re all firmly in your no-go zone and that’s great….. but sometimes you just need mash potatoes and there’s no two ways about it – this is the prefect way to get the satisfaction you need without the carbs and calories!
Cauliflower is a great classic low carb option. It is so versitile and this is just one of the many ways it can be used. This is adapted from a recipe i found on Pinterest, i have altered it slightly. With childhood obesity at it’s highest ever don’t tell your kids it’s actually cauliflower and they will never know! These can also be frozen which is great if you make too many and can be de-frosted the morning of the day you plan to eat them.
