As many of you already know, I have been busy in the kitchen working on a new cookbook. I promise you will be seeing some of my best, most creative work yet. I’m excited to show you what I have been up to. In the meantime, I have been lining up some very talented guest bloggers for you. Today I have a winning recipe from the lovely and talented Martina of KetoDietApp. Take it away, Martina!…
When Kyndra asked me to start guest posting for her blog, I was really excited! I have been a big fan of her amazing work ever since I found her Avocado Taco Boats on one of Facebook’s popular low-carb pages. Both Kyndra and I follow a low-carb, paleo / primal diet, so it was easy for me to choose a recipe well suited for her blog. For those who avoid dairy, I included a dairy-free option.
Rice is one of the most common ingredients people miss on a low-carb diet. Using cauliflower instead is a great way to replace this carbohydrate-rich food and keep the scales down.
One of the most common mistakes people make when making cauli-rice is overcooking it. My favorite way of cooking “cauli-rice’ is to briefly stir-fry it on a pan greased with ghee or butter. This keeps it crispy and neutralizes most of the typical cauliflower taste. I use the same technique for making “zoodles” (spiralized zucchini) which I only cook for 2-3 minutes. Both cauli-rice and zoodles taste best al dente!
Hi everybody! My name is Martina and I live in the UK. I love food, science, photography and creating new recipes. I am a firm believer of low-carb living and regular exercise. As a science geek, I base my views on valid research and I have first-hand experience of what it is to be on a low-carb diet. Both are reflected on my blog, in my apps and book.
I started eating low-carb in 2011, shortly after I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. Since then, I‘ve been trying to figure out what works best for me and discovered some of the great benefits of low-carb eating. Following a ketogenic, paleo-friendly diet plan helps me maintain a healthy weight while eating real food. I believe that true paleo is great, however if your goal is to lose weight, paleo is often not enough.
My mission is to help you reach your goals, whether it’s your dream weight or simply eating healthy food. Come and say hi on my blog!
