Raw Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Cauliflower is at its best from December through March when it is in season and most plentiful in your local markets. Cauliflower contains allicin, which can improve heart health and reduce the risk of strokes, and selenium, a chemical that works well with Vitamin C to strengthen the immune system. Cauliflower can also help to maintain a healthy cholesterol level.

The health benefits and Nutritional information of Macadamias is that they are a high energy food and contain no cholesterol. The natural oils in macadamias contain 78 per cent monounsaturated fats, the highest of any oil including olive oil. Macadamias are also a good source of protein, calcium, potassium and dietary fibre and are very low in sodium. The protein component of nuts is low in lysine and high in arginine. Of the many benefits surrounding the Australian macadamia nut, perhaps the greatest is that they taste so good while being good for you.
A high energy food, macadamias taste great eaten raw from the shell, dry roasted, or cooked in oil. They can also be used to enhance the flavour of cakes, confectionery, ice cream, salads, roasts and casseroles. The possibilities are only limited by the imagination of the user.


Ingredients:
2 – cups cauliflower
¼ - cup raw macadamia nuts
¼ - cup olive oil
1 – tsp. sea salt
1 – very small clove garlic (peeled)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste


Directions:
In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients, except the pepper and process until the mixture looks fluffy, like conventional mashed potatoes.

Top with freshly ground pepper.

I personally like to add chopped cilantro to mixture along with the pepper. Yummmm! TO LIVE FOR

Body & Soul Wellness Fair - Vernon - March 2019


Wellness Tip
Mold - What to do?
If you notice a spot of mold on a brick of hard cheese, such as cheddar, what should you do? To be on the safe side, trim off one inch of cheese under all moldy surfaces. The rest of the brick of cheese is usually okay to eat. If you see mold on a soft cheese, like cream cheese or cottage cheese, don't remove the mold and eat the rest. Throw the soft cheese away.

Delicious Tuna Salad
Category: Salads
Description: The tuna itself is very healthy; besides the fact that it's low in calories and fat, it is a great source of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. A typical tuna sandwich at a restaurant contains up to a whopping 720 calories and 43 grams of fat. The problem with this fishy favorite is all the mayo that usually goes into it. So by choosing a Tuna Salad you avoid the mayo.
