  1. Hi all, I am on my first day of my first Whole 30. I tried the cauliflower mash recipe from the Whole 30 book and apparently missed the part about adding the liquids gradually. So now I could possibly drink the dish through a straw. Can it be saved? Thanks!
  2. I am on about day 10 of my Whole 30 and the hardest thing for me to give up is carbs! I am used to eating pasta or something with everything! I have been replacing that carb with the mashed cauliflower from the cookbook pretty frequently - is this actually a healthy substitute to be eating a lot of? I often don't eat another vegetable with dinner. (To be clear, I eat brussels sprouts, spaghetti squash, etc. too so it's not only the cauliflower, just mostly ) Would love some thoughts!!

    Cauliflower Soup

    I adore Melissa Joulwan's Golden Cauliflower Soup. The challenge, however, is that I don't always have beef broth on hand. I won't buy any in the store; I have become a snob. Here is her recipe in case you are interested. So, when I recently came across this recipe that uses very few ingredients and just plain water, I had to give it a try. I am so glad I did! All you need is olive oil (go for coconut if you prefer), onion, cauliflower, salt and pepper and time to make it. I plan on bubbling up another batch this weekend, and will likely make it a double. It is SO good and simple! Enjoy!

    Cauliflower Bad for us?

    I came across this "article" today and my feathers are a little ruffled. I would love to hear everyone's take on this. I tend not to agree but then again I have had heated debates with friends about the harms of phytic acid and why they shouldn't be eating legumes or grains. I guess to each their own but I refuse to believe cruciferous veggies should not be on my plate! Potatoes get such a bad rap. Nutritionally-speaking, they're an excellent source of vitamin C, B6, thyroid-supporting carbohydrates, some usable protein, and are one of the vegetables that contain the least natural plant toxins*. What's more, they're an excellent vehicle for other tasty and nutritious foods – butter, salt and cheese (you think I'm kidding, but I assure you I'm not). The backlash of the humble spud's negative press and general fear of carbohydrates has been the rise of the ‘tater haters', and a disturbing number of “faux potato†recipes (cauliflower mash/cauliflower pancakes/other crime against delicious food). Most people would agree that using cauliflower as a potato substitute makes for woefully inadequate dishes taste-wise (and how do you get past the dirty socks-smell?!), but I think probably few people realize that potato is actually better for you than its cauliflower understudy. Cauliflower (and it's mate, broccoli, along with other cruciferous vegetables like kale, cabbage and Brussels sprouts) contain plant chemicals known as goitrogens, which can block the formation of active thyroid hormone, down-regulate thyroid function and essentially slow metabolism. Not a great thing if you're trying to heal your metabolism, increase your core body temperature/metabolic rate, lose weight or achieve overall better health. Yes, cauliflower and broccoli contain lots of viable micronutrients and on-paper look like brilliantly healthy foods – but as foods for humans their nutrient profiles translate very differently in the body. Aside from the goitrogens, they contain large amounts of insoluble fibre (cellulose, which we humans can't digest) that can be quite irritating to the gut (which is why these vegetables can cause bloating and flatulence) and also inhibit the amount of nutrients you absorb from these foods and any others ingested in the same meal. By all means, if you love cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower and have a well-functioning metabolism (your digestion is spot-on, you are free from constipation, your hair, nails and skin are perfectly healthy, you're generally ‘warm' with little effort, you're not over-exercising and you're not under-eating), then go right ahead and consume them in moderation – just make sure they're very well-cooked (raw kale smoothies are most definitely a no-go!) and that you're avoiding other concentrated sources of goitrogens such as soy.
