Why Cauliflower Mash Instead of Regular Mashed Potatoes?
Lean and Green meals don’t allow potatoes. This includes potatoes and sweet potatoes. Instead cauliflower mash or faux-tatoes is a great substitute. Traditional potatoes are high in carbohydrates, however, cauliflower mash is low in carbs and low in calories. Lean and Green meals restrict carbs so rice is definitely a no-no. Cauliflower is an easy to digest vegetable. It contains vitamins and minerals including folate, vitamin A & C, and is a good source of dietary fiber. Cauliflower can also improve immune function and lower blood pressure.
