The Cauliflower Mash That is a Thanksgiving Favorite

    cauliflowermashfork.jpg

    It would be rare to find a Thanksgiving spread without mashed potatoes. While potatoes themselves can be a healthy part of our diet, the standard mashed potato recipe is full of inflammation-causing dairy and low-quality fats. For this 21-Day cleanse approved version, we've replaced the standard white potato to make a cauliflower mash for a lighter texture and a gentler effect on our blood sugar. 
     
    Switching Mashed Potatoes for Cauliflower Mash
     
    It may seem like an extreme change to remove the potato from this beloved classic. We think you'll be surprised at the creaminess and fluffiness of this cauliflower version. We didn't miss the potatoes when we taste tested this version, but if you have very picky eaters, or just can't say goodbye completely to your potatoes, we suggest using 1/2 potatoes and 1/2 cauliflower. Plus, the ingredients will still make this version a cleaner choice regardless of the base vegetable choosen. 
     
    The Glycemic Index, and Why It Matters
     
    The glycemic index measures how different foods will affect blood sugar. The higher foods fall on this index, the more they will typically raise blood sugar. Of course, this is not the only factor that determines a food's health benefits - micronutrients, phytonutrients, and personal toxic triggers which are all important qualities to consider when choosing the best foods for you. However, choosing foods lower on the glycemic scale can help you regulate our blood sugar and keep us healthy in the long run. When choosing foods that are more likely to raise blood sugar (like white potatoes) it's important to pair them with healthy fats and high-quality protein to slow their digestion. In this cauliflower mash, we paired it with vegan-friendly fats so we won't experience a spike in our blood sugar (or a food coma) from this dish.

    Day 2

    Posted by Ariane on December 3, 2016 at 10:36pm 3 Comments

    Spent most of last night and all day cooking and prepping meals for the week. I feel all set in that regard.  However, I haven't had to really be "on the go" yet.  So we'll see what the week brings. So far so good.

    Concentrating on planning recipes etc....That helps.  Not nearly as nervous as I thought I would be.  Had to go to a big opening night party for a broadway show and there was a ton of food.  I had water and a few roasted carrots.  They had all of…

    Holy cow. I'm NOT in a good mood - this is really bringing up a LOT of junky emotional stuff. After doing the Clean Cleanse for 20 days, I wasn't really expecting this much of an upheaval. 

    Right now, i want to eat something OFF…
