Homemade Riced Cauliflower (12 cal per ½ cup)

I decided to try my hand at making my own riced cauliflower since I had a bunch at home, and it turned out so delicious I’m proud of myself!! I used part of my cauliflower head for my mashed cauliflower recipe, so this one yielded about 1 ½ cups. Green giant sells frozen riced cauliflower (which is so delicious), so if you do not have time to make your own, that is always an option. Theirs is only 10 calories per ½ cup and it contains slightly more protein, vitamin c, calcium and iron, but there is more sodium, and carbs to theirs. In general the differences are minimal. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cauliflower head

Process:

  1. Separate cauliflower florets and chop off the stems
  2. Place in blender or food processor and pulse/chop until you get a grainy, rice consistency
  3. Transfer to pan to fry (I used a minimal amount of coconut oil, but you can use other kinds or butter)
  4. Fry, stirring frequently, until soft and some of the cauliflower browns
  5. Add optional seasoning (I prefer turmeric and a bit of sea salt)
  6. Serve and enjoy!

“This was a mistake.”

“Yeah. I know.”

“Sam. Why do I listen to you? Let’s go to the store now, while we’re out, it’ll be fast.”

“I thought this would be a good time.”

“Everyone and their screaming children are here.”

“You made that one kid cry.”

“Maybe they shouldn’t have grabbed for my cane.”

“True.”

“If I could’ve made the parents cry too, I’d have done that.”

“Let’s just try to get through this.”

“Helluva rally speech.”

“I’m tired. Rally yourself.”

“I’m gonna think about things I’ll do to you at home.”

“Keep it in your pants, Dean.”

“Oh I… my god look at all that freaking mayonnaise.”

“It’s… wow.”

“Holy shit that’s the jackpot of mayo. I bet you could suffocate someone in that. Two minutes tops.”

“No. That’s not possible.”

“We should try on one of those asshole that keeps jacking cars on Cermak.”

“Death by mayo? Is that what we’ve become?”

“It’s what they deserve.”

“Hmm. No. I don’t think it’s possible.”

“Have you ever seen porn of people eating tubs of mayo?”

“…I’m not going to shame anyone for what they watch.”

“You shuddered.”

“That’s because you made the motion.”

“What motion?”

“That motion!”

“Hey, no need to sock me on the shoulder. Ow.”

“You deserved it.”

“At least you didn’t stick my head in that. Ugh. Can you imagine making it? Hey. Can we get a container?”

“For what?”

“Experiments.”

“I’m not wasting food.”

“I’ll eat it after. I just wanna see a few things.”

“Nope. We are getting low sodium cheese and turkey and that’s it.”

“Dean Winchester, Man of Letters, Legendary Hunter… reduced to eating low sodium deli products.”

“That’s what happens when Dean Winchester, Man of Letters, Legendary Hunter has high blood pressure.”

“Do you think anyone eats that and counts it as a vegetable serving?”

“I sincerely hope not.”

“Yo, deli dude. Can I try a sample of that? Yeah. That. Thanks.”

“Don’t you dare spit it out if it’s gross.”

“Nah. I’ll just chew it and make you sea food.”

“Are you twelve?”

“Inches, yes. Okay. Here goes.”

“I can’t look.”

“…”

“What? What’s that face mean?”

“…”

“I can’t tell if you love it or hate it. You look like last night right before you came.”

“This is not the same face!”

“Oh, excuse me, you look a little less winded.”

“I have a response to that but right now, I have other needs.”

“Like what? Are you gonna throw up?”

“No. Worse.”

“Oh no.”

“Yo, deli dude. I’ll take a container of that.”

Salt/sodium avoid it for weight loss? Or doesn't matter at all? In your eBook you say low sodium. But you eat lots of sodium and you're lean.

Low sodium is best. Most people who read my book are quite sedentary so I wrote it for them.

When you are more active you can increase fat and sodium content daily yes.

PSA

If you are ketogenic, you NEED 3 to 5 GRAMS of sodium daily. You all know from experience that your body does not retain water nearly as much as when we were carb beasts, and electrolytes go where the water goes. You also are not secreting much insulin, so your kidneys will excrete sodium rather than resorb it.
(All this is what is mainly responsible for what we call the “keto flu”)

If you’re feeling crappy, you most likely need salt.
