Healthy Filling Meals: Creamy Cauliflower.

Eat to Lose Weight: Creamy Cauliflower Puree. Healthy Filling Meals Series

One of the objectives of my "Healthy Filling Meals Series" is to create simple, easy, fast, weight management friendly and healthy recipes that help you lose weight and work well with my "Eat to Lose Weight" philosophy.  

This creamy cauliflower puree tastes more like potatoes, which makes it perfect for everybody, specially for your kids if they don't like cauliflower.

I always use a similar basic formula for all my creamy purees, so I use that formula for this one as well. I don't use any potato or flour to reduce the amount of carbs in it so you can have a healthy dinner for weight loss.

It is also low in Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load (do you want to learn why those concepts are so important to lose weight?) , so if you respect the healthy portion sizes you can have a perfect lunch or dinner for you healthy eating plan to lose weight.
