Wonder what makes it so good?
Should you be adding this to your menu?
If you ask us, cauliflower rice is a healthy addition for diet-watchers. Cauliflower, as a cruciferous vegetable has a load of benefits to it. There are about 25 calories-5 gms of carbohydrates in a cup of the cooked cauliflower as compared to the same amount of rice. Apart from that, it also contains a lot of additional benefits for those strictly trying to tame their weight, such as a good source of vitamins C, K, B6 as well as folate content.
Cauliflower also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, actively boosting your metabolism and fights back the toxins and the additional fat you usually find in other junk food variants. The vegetable also contains helpful benefits that are good for brain development and has also been found to slow down the aging process. Safe to say, it is one of the healthiest veggies you can consume! Since it weighs less on carbs and calories, it is an excellent food choice for a ketogenic diet. Without the added calories of rice, you can stick to your diet and enjoy the healthy benefits! Cutting down on refined carb sources and sticking to healthier food choices on the menu like Mira when eating out can help you trim down easy!
Plus, all it takes is just 10 minutes to prepare. You can make this dish in the comfort of your home and lose weight in a healthy way.
