Thank you also on all the great comments on the whatsapp post - I loved reading them. Fun fact - I now moved whatsapp to the last page of my iphone apps. I have to physically see that notification pop up otherwise I literally only see the messages when I want to check on something. :)
I decided to put up a few light/ medium posts to see if that eases me in again, because I do like this little white block of therapy!
So we all know everyone's doing low carb eating and banting, whole 30, Paleo and whatnot.
I don't even know what the last 3 mean!
But if there's a chance to try something else that will be healthier, I'm all for it.
Like 11 years ago when we visited Australia and stayed with our vegetarian friends for a portion of our visit.
He does the cooking and cooks standard meals the veggie way, like bolognaise with lentils instead of mince.
When I got back home, I incorporated some of what I learnt into our cooking and I'm still adding lentils to my mince for bolognaise so many years later.
So my friend sent me a cauliflower stir-fried rice recipe sometime last year. The idea is that you blitz the cauliflower and treat it as rice when you stirfy your meat and veg, and voila! Low-carb goodness.
Except it was horrible. I powered on through but could not convince the rest, and since stir-fries are a staple around here and I need people to eat it, I never bothered with that again.
(It's on Pinterest as a "fail")

Then I saw Suzette DIY did some cauli pizza, and somewhere else I saw cauli breadsticks, so I thought I'd give it a bash.
Guys, it was horrible.
Connor and I powered on through (I read blogs while I ate so I didn't have to think about how horrible the food was), Kendra said "this food makes me want to vomit" and D said, "Marsh, I think we prefer cauliflower the way you normally make it".
Everyone heartily agreed, and I didn't even take offence.
So I guess cauli-whatever is not for this family.
As Amy Poehler says, "good for you, not for me"
Long live cauliflower with cheese sauce :)
Tell me, do you eat cauliflower? How do you like it?
