Home Cooking, for the sake of your health!

Mashed CauliflowerI love potatoes in almost any shape or form.  However, white potatoes (that are traditionally used to make mashed potatoes) can cause internal inflammation.  This dish a healthier alternative to the heavy white potato.

Cauliflower is packed with nutrients.  It contains various B vitamins, as well as antioxidants. It’s anti-inflammatory and provides the body with natural fiber aiding in digestion.

Some may say that the taste of cauliflower is quite bland, however when cooked properly this wonderful vegetable can truly shine and excite the taste buds.

I love making this quick and easy dish for my picky toddler!
