  • I always think every one else's food looks so good. I eat the same things.

    I will also start my gratitude photos today. 30 days of gratitude - here I come

    • wow, I am coming to your house for dinner (or lunch or breakfast) that stuff looks great!

      I am noticing that I am taking time to make my plate look nicer since I am going to photograph it. Makes it more enjoyable.

          • Tomorrow I leave for Amarillo for almost 2 weeks. Sigh. I'll be checking in on folks, but probably won't have much time to post. Cross your fingers. I just started losing weight again...

              • Thanks!

                OMG. I just made the best "cauliflower" rice pudding. Sounds gross, but you totally can't taste the cauliflower!!! Pretty easy, too.

                  • Had to see what the family thought first. This recipe makes a TON - I might half it for smaller families

                    1 Head Cauliflower
                    4 cups Almond Milk (or other milk of choice)
                    1/4 cup pumpkin puree (as a thickener)
                    1 tsp stevia (maybe a bit more, depending upon your sweet tooth) or other sweetener
                    1/2 Tbs ground cinnamon (I would use more if it were just me, but I love cinnamon)
                    1/4 tsp ground cardamon
                    1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
                    1/4-1/2 cup raisins (optional)
                    8 eggs (optional - I wanted protein and a little richness)

                    1. Rice cauliflower. I think this is easiest in a food processor, but you can also use a cheese grater.
                    2. In a large pot, heat everything from cauliflower through raisins.
                    3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook around 20 minutes or until cauliflower is cooked. If you are going to skip the eggs, keep cooking until it has reduced to your desired thickness.
                    4. In a separate bowl, beat eggs. Temper, slowly with cauliflower mixture (to avoid scrambled eggs). Return to pan. Cook until thickened.

                    I did not tell mom that this was made with cauliflower. She thought it was pretty good (except she would have liked it sweeter - which is why I say you might need more stevia or other sweetener). DH thought it was good as is!

                    • Yesterday's food was not the best (and the scale shows it - though I'm pretty sure it's mostly water. Too many carbs and too little protein. Will do better today. Planning to take a lot of food with me and stop at the grocery store. Cannot let this trip derail my progress!!!

                        • So I have never done the ricing with the cauliflower, do you just throw chopped up pieces of cauliflower raw into the food processor?

                          The stevia, is it pure powdered or liquid or is it one of the ones that has a bulking agent in it? I use liquid and when I make foods that need to be sweet (like desserts but not tea) I also use some xylitol and erythritol. I think mixing the 3 has a better effect on flavor for people who are not so used to SF sweeteners, and this way you don't have to use so much of one or the other. (note:xylitol is NOT good for dogs, and some people have intestinal issues when they use it-I never have and my intestines are about as delicate as they get!- so use it with caution)

                          I am so going to try this. Thanks, hope your trip goes well, it has been very nice to have you back for a while so hurry back!

                          • Yes. I just chop it into big pieces and pulse it until it is a rice-like consistency.

                            I was using liquid stevia. Good idea on the mixture. Let me know how much you use

                            • I usually start with a dropper full of the liquid and a tsp each of the xylitol and erythritol and taste and add, that is why my recipes never come out the same twice.

                              I made a spaghetti squash/coconut pie the other night that was good (did I already tell you guys about it?).
