My husband and I often go into diet mode every once in awhile. We both feel really good about eating clean and feel like we have more energy. The Keto Diet is pretty hardcore; I’ve never been able to do it! I think simply eating low carb is hard enough, so it’s good enough for me. However, it’s been a challenge to cook for 1 person on Keto, 1 person on low carb and 1 toddler who is not a great eater. Plus, I’d like to stay away from preservatives and fake sugar foods as much as possible.
Here’s one of my favorite dinners that actually works for us all!
Cauliflower Mac & Cheese: This is an insanely popular dish, even for people who aren’t on a diet! The key to the recipe is to make sure the cauliflower is 100% dry before you bake it in the dish. I bake it for way longer than 15 minutes – maybe 35-40 minutes total. I like the ends to brown up and get crispy. I also mash the cauliflower pretty hard so that it’s undetectable to the naked eye. The magic of cauliflower is that it can be transformed into a texture that is almost exactly like carbs! Anything smothered in heavy cream and topped off with cheese is destined to be delicious!
