Good morning! We are almost 2 weeks into the new year, how are you doing on your resolutions, if you made them. My yoga studio is jammed, I am happy for my yogi but I actually like it when there are less people.

With the new year, for myself and many others is a declaration that we had too much of too many good things and we need to eat healthier. I am curious, what do you do to eat healthier? What do you think about “food substitutions”?
|Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad RECIPE HERE|
By that I mean cauliflower made into rice, pizza crust, Alfredo sauce, mashed “potatoes” and more? Or spiralized vegetables to take the place of noodles? Mushrooms instead of bread? I know all of these are low carb solutions and I am curious how many of these do you use? Do you eat them on a daily basis or just occasionally? And if you are a huge fan please share your favorite recipes of substitutions.

I would like to say that I frequently eat food-substitutions and a low carb diet but I I would not be telling the truth. I typically try to eat less carbs during the week and usually only in the morning. When the weekend hits I like pizza and pasta what can I say.

As for food substitutes, I do a lot with cauliflower. I love cauliflower rice with lime and cilantro, cauliflower potatoes, and I have made the cauliflower Alfredo many times and I loved it!

As for noodle substitutes, I only like to eat spaghetti squash, I am not really into the spiraled noodles. I have used zucchini slices for lasagna noodles and they tasted great but lets be honest squash is not pasta noodles.

As for bread, I typically eat sprouted grain bread and I do like English muffins but I have yet to try the “Cloud bread” and I do not like mushrooms. I just feel like if I am going to “splurge” I may as well eat the real thing. Especially if it is homemade crusty bread right from the oven and with butter please!

What about you? Are you a low carb eater, a moderation eater, or one of the lucky ones that can eat whatever they want?
As I said above, if you have a great recipe for a food substitution I would love to try it. Especially if you have made the cauliflower tater tots, the cauliflower cheese smothered breadsticks.
Have a great day!
