As we all know, being thin is everything. It doesn’t matter how happy or successful you are – if you’re not also a size 4, you’re a failure and you’re lying to yourself if you claim otherwise. But how do you get that elusive wasp waist when food comes laden with things like dopamine and flavour? Don’t worry, gals! Glamourless has got you covered with a guide to this season’s must-eat vegetable. It may look like broccoli that’s gone into shock, but that doesn’t mean the humble cauliflower doesn’t have a lot to offer. Read on for our tips on how to enjoy it!
Boiled egg – swap with a piece of cauliflower.
The best thing about this swap is that they’re both white and need to be boiled, so you’re probably not gong to have to make many changes. Just boil until mushy enough to dunk your soldiers in, and serve in an egg cup.
Toast – swap with a piece of cauliflower.
Toast is high calorie, so when you’re enjoying your cauliflower-based boiled egg substitute, you don’t want to be dipping pieces of hot buttered toast into it and piling on the pounds. Instead, lightly boil some cauliflower, slice into sticks and dip away guilt-free!
Butter – swap with a piece of cauliflower.
The trick with this is to blend it into a fine paste so it’s spreadable. Then smear onto your cauliflower soldiers ahead of dunking into your cauliflower egg.
If you don’t have the willpower to just skip it, then why not have a delicious cauliflower ‘sandwich’? Simply replace your favourite bread with two slices of lightly toasted cauliflower, and fill with whatever you fancy – diced cauliflower, blended cauliflower, crumbled cauliflower… The world is your oyster! (Don’t eat any oysters, though.)
Lol – just kidding.
Why not just eat an entire raw cauliflower like an apple? Go easy, though – cauliflower still has calories.
