Cauliflower Rice Recipe

Is there a life beyond the next meal worth exploring or should we just go with the flow? Let’s make a cauliflower rice to take back control!

Who in its right mind wants to trade rice to cauliflower? Cauliflower sounds bad as it is for many who miraculously find it on their plate -just ask anybody who isn’t well versed in the art of polite refusal aka kids- and now we even want to replace the only good thing in their dinner with it.

Is there life without carbs?

Expect deep rooted rage, cracking open long healed wounds, feeding the defiant cockiness of the defeated who has nothing to lose anymore. Second after second, the hatred spiraling out of control and no words exist anymore that could rein the outburst of feelings.

Maybe next time when the dinner is late two hours, don’t introduce low carb options of favorite meals or in fact anything that isn’t packed with carbs.

Were there brain without carbs?

It seems that our brain is quite a picky eater. Or at least prefers high energy easy to process food over anything else when rounded to a tight corner of late meals. Once our blood sugar level drops a bit, our brain starts to get edgy from the withdrawal.

Afterall, our brain is the most power-hungry organ in our body, accounting for about 20% of daily energy requirement. It was developed on the promise of having plenty of fairly easily processable food available to nourish it.

Did we cook then?

Cooking meals afterall isn’t just a pass time for the human race but an important evolutionary step that allowed us to have more easily digestible energy in less time. It seems that what fueled our emergence from the animal kingdom is causing our doom too.

Our body is not as good as picking up evolutionary cues as our brain solves problems, it seems. Unfortunately, on the way to figure out how to make easily and readily available the very thing our body needs to function, we forgot to send a memo to our primitive brain about it.

As our unconscious self doesn’t know about the changes, it still thinks about the next famine and urging us to gobble up every food high in calories as often as we can, even if we have stores last many winters in the pantry and on us too.

Should we pick cauliflower over rice?

So basically, getting fat and hating cauliflower is not really our fault but hardwired into us through millennia of evolutionary selection where those who binge eat as much as they could, survived while those who only ate as much, they needed for the day perished.

Although, this fact frees us from the guilt of greed or at least gives us something to bargain with on judgment day, it doesn’t help us maintain a healthy weight. Until our evolution or medicine catches up with our creative thinking brain, we have to survive somehow though.

How can cauliflower be rice?

Luckily, our creativity doesn’t end by feeding ourselves and we can use it to hack even into our behavior and influence our subconscious decisions. Unfortunately, this also takes some time and effort, but we can successfully pull it off, once we get the hang of it.

The most basic tricks of all is simply getting in front of the problems and not letting our brain cranky by starving it. Planning ahead with meals then picking a time to eat and most importantly stick to it is a very successful tactics to avoid our brain going into beast mode.

Once we master some of those behavioral hacks, we can use it to convince not just ourselves but even others that cauliflower can not only be healthy, but it can even be rice.Cauliflower rice - SunCakeMom
