Banana Cauliflower Faux-Meal

Print

I created this recipe as a great alternative to Oatmeal, hence the Faux-Meal. I do not eat grains/gluten and wanted an alternative to one of my favorite breakfasts. I replaced the oatmeal with a healthier alternative, cauliflower. I also do not eat dairy and replaced it with coconut milk. This is a great alternative for anyone with Ulcerative Colitis, IBD, Celiacs, or Lactose Intolerance.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

In just one cup of cauliflower, there are 21 calories, boasting 24% of recommended intake of vitamin C and 43% of recommended intake of healthy eyesight promoting lutein and zeaxanthin. Additionally, with more fiber than white potatoes, cauliflower is a great option if you're watching your blood sugar levels and sugar intake. One medium banana has just 105 calories, 14 g naturally occurring sugar and provides 3 grams of satiating fiber, making it one of the healthiest cheap snacks on the market. Bananas also a great source of belly-flattening nutrients like potassium and prebiotic fiber, which helps to feed good gut bacteria and improve digestion.
