Cauliflower Mash with Fresh Herbs & Ghee

January is a perfect time to start eating healthier, don’t you agree?  After all, the holidays are behind us and we have NO excuses right😉.

This week a bunch of us, including my husband and I, began another round of a Healthy 5-day Re-Set.  You may remember this post where I briefly talked about it.

The main goal is to try and eat plenty of veggies…..like 5 to 10 fistfuls while eliminating processed foods, sugar, grains, nuts, and legumes.  10 fistfuls of veggies?  WOW, I know that sounds like a lot but if you’re adding a couple big handfuls of greens to your morning smoothie, you all ready have almost 3 fistfuls…depending on how big your fist is😉.

In any case…eating lots of vegetables is just plain good for you.  I am espeically in love with cauliflower. It’s all over the web-world which you probably have noticed.  There’s everything from smoothies to pizza!  Yes, you heard me…cauliflower in a smoothie.  I haven’t tried this yet but do stay tuned!

As for me…one of my faves is my cauliflower popcorn.  It’s one you’ll want to sneak into the movie theatre with you😉.  Bonus, it may taste like I used cheese, but since it’s dairy free, I can have it all week long on my 5 day cleanse!

Cauliflower Mash steamed and mashed over the stove……so there you go. You don’t need an Instant pot!

My husband happens to love it charred!  But most recently, I have tired a couple variations of mashed cauliflower.  If you need a sub for mashed potatoes, I have the perfect recipe.  I have made this both in my Instant Pot and on the stove.  Either way works perfectly.

Any fresh herb will work….I used parsley.

Speaking of pizza….this version is amazing, although I did use raw grass fed cheese.  I happen to love cheese but I try my best to eat it in moderation.  In fact, when I do eat cheese, it’s raw, grass fed, and probably goat or feta made from sheeps milk or goats milk.  My husband prefers cheddar & Parmesan so occasionally I use that as well.  Remember, everything in moderation is how I roll.

Let’s not waste anymore time…..This will take you just minutes to make.
