Today I made mashed garlic cauliflower.


would love a few tips on how you made that..my current goal is low/no carbs during the week, although I do have some quinoa and kidney beans at lunchtime, i will allow myself one serve of carbs on weekend days. I had lost about 50lbs on the HCG diet, but ate really badly for most of the autumn/christmas and gained about 16 of that back...but the no carb thing since Monday has dropped 3.74lbs, which is good. it was recently gained so it will fall away fast. And a good reminder not to sabotage my recent losses!!

so I have two goals for the next few weeks. no bread, pasta, etc during the week. And I don't take the elevator at work until the end of january (we are only a three story building, but it is verboten to me!!)

Oooh cauli mash, yummy!  I love cauliflower rice as well, yummo, you just blitz it in the food processor and microwave for 3-4 mins, is delicious with a curry or with stir fried veg.  My friend boils the cauli rice in water but it comes out more like sloppy mash, I prefer the microwaved method as it keeps a little bite and is more flavoursome Smiley

I have a feeling my healthy eating is going to go out the window this afternoon after I give blood. I'm already starving after having just finished my lunch...worried about how hungry ill beafter donating tonight since it usually makes me ravenous. Hopefully an extra big stir fry will be enough!

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.

We must all be on a cauliflower kick cause I made cauliflower crust pizza for myself last night.  It was the first try and I will cook it longer next time so it gets a bit crisper on the bottom.  But all in all it was pretty good!

Here is a link to a recipe for mashed cauliflower.  You will need to make some substitutions to make it a bit more low fat though(You can sub evaporated skim milk in place of the heavy cream, and low fat cheese in place of the full fat stuff). http://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/2012/01/better-than-potatoes-cheesy-cauliflower.html

I've been pretty good at eating my breakfast all week! I live with my boyfriend, and he has a close friend who stays over a few nights a week because of how close our apartment is to their college. On Wednesday morning I got up and made them bacon, eggs, and 'potato pancakes' (frozen things from Mccain) and didn't eat any of it! I ate a delicious plate of avocado, cottage cheese, and grapes.
I've been eating alot of fruit and vegetables and staying away from fried foods and bad snacks even when they're right in front of me.

Yesterday I put together a quick soup because I had the morning off of work and it's delicious! It was carrot and squash with coriander and cumin, finished off with skim milk instead of cream. It's tasty and healthy!

So glad to hear we're all doing well!  Cheesy

Soooo at the beginning of the week I had my goal I wanted to work on (5 fruits and veggies a day) but then I also decided to count calories and be under a certain number and work out and blah blah it was a bit overwhelming and I ended up doing none of it for a couple days! Yesterday I went back to focusing on just the fruits and veggies and I'm already eating better. I think I need to incorporate a few new healthy habits slowly and not overwhelm myself with everything I want to change at once.

Still trying to figure out dinner, I'm low on veggies and out of bread and not sure if I want to venture out to the store.

I made it this way:

unfroze frozen garlic flavored califlower florets (2 bags) in the microwave (steamed). You can use milk, butter/margarine, cream cheese, whatever you use to make mashed spuds. You mash it (or use a blender/food processor) as with spuds. I think you could add any spices you want too. Very easy. Texture is not exactly the same but very nice on it's own merits.

I'm making these salmon patties for dinner! I added some lemon zest and cayenne pepper as well as cooked minced red onion with minced celery to add in (and reduced the fat a bit). I desperately need to get veggies from the store, but I'm making baked onion rings from here on Craftster as well as a bit of salad and some sad looking broccoli I would like to use up.

I've been getting vegetables in every day. And I cooked quinoa the other day and have been eating that. Great substitute for rice. Tonight I had vegetables with some shrimp and quinoa with just a little sweet and sour sauce.

I need to pick up other types of vegetables next time I'm out.

I'm going to hop on board to try and make my eating habits healthier.

I don't think I completely take away all bad foods but make them a treat once a week for now and see now that goes.

Two things I definitely need to work on this year is:

- Eating Breakfast and Lunch more often. Ever since I stopped going to university last year, I barely eat a lunch and only have breakfast twice a week, if I have change to get something for breakfast at all.
- Eating more fruit and vegetables. My main source for these right now is canned soups and some microwavable dinners (excluding home cooked dinners as some had veg some didn't).

I'm a bit late to say what my goal of the week is though hehe.
