LOL. Don’t judge it yet…try it, it’s PERFECT substitute if you love your meals with rice!
Grab a ‘head’ of Cauliflower:
Chop it into smaller pieces so that it can fit into your food processor (no food processor? no sweat! Use a cheese grater!)
The idea is to get the Cauliflower nicely chopped down to the fine-consistency of rice. Stick the bowl of chopped/grated Cauliflower in the microwave (or steam it) for about 3 minutes and WALA! You’re done! Yes…it’s really that simple.
Give it a try….I’m betting you won’t be missing rice so much anymore. I know I don’t! =)
Health BenefitsWhile cauliflower is not a well-studied cruciferous vegetable from a health standpoint, you will find several dozen studies linking cauliflower-containing diets to cancer prevention, particularly with respect to the following types of cancer: bladder cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer. This connection between cauliflower and cancer prevention should not be surprising, since cauliflower provides special nutrient support for three body systems that are closely connected with cancer development as well as cancer prevention. These three systems are (1) the body’s detox system, (2) its antioxidant system, and (3) its inflammatory/anti-inflammatory system. Chronic imbalances in any of these three systems can increase risk of cancer, and when imbalances in all three systems occur simultaneously, the risk of cancer increases significantly.
