Are you already on board with the cauliflower rice trend? If you haven’t tried it, grated cauliflower is an excellent low-carb rice replacement thanks to the similar texture of the two. And because it soaks up the flavor of any sauces or marinades you use with it, you’ll hardly notice a difference in taste.
Of course, you will notice the difference from a nutritional standpoint. Instead of feeling weighted down and heavy from a carb-laden meal, you’ll be packing your recipes with this cruciferous powerhouse, naturally high in fiber and vitamins! Cauliflower is considered an unlimited non-starchy vegetable on the Nutrisystem weight loss plan, so you can enjoy as much as you’d like to fight hunger and stay satisfied.
