When is Eating “Cauliflower Everything” a Problem?

Cauliflower, a vegetable I don’t remember eating until I was in my 20’s, can now be used as a substitute for just about anything. It can be used as pizza crust, gnocchi, rice, bread, mashed potato substitute, steak, and so much more.

Why This Non-Diet Dietitian Still Cares About Your Diet

“I don’t care about your diet”. I’ve made posts like this before, but I always want to add an asterisk. I don’t care about society’s newest diet for weight loss or to live longer. I don’t care about the fads and the gimmicks.

When your goal was to lose weight, an easy barometer of your success was the bathroom scale. The scale tells you whether you’re moving in the right direction, or whether you need to keep working harder towards your goal.
But what not that it isn’t about the weight? And therefore, not about the number on the scale.
