At the time I was diagnosed with diabetes, I was in the midst of a different medical emergency.  An effect of that was medication for 6 months which prohibited free comsumption of various vegetables that contained a lot of Vitamin K.  One of which is cauliflower. 

I am now off of that medication and to celebrate, last month, I got my first head of cauliflower in 6 months.  Oh, what a happy day!

I like it best raw, with a little light ranch vegetable dip.  It’s a fresh, yummy vegetable.  The best part about cauliflower is that it only has 5 grams of carbs and contains 77% of your daily Calcium requirements!

So that is my ode to cauliflower.  Left to another day is my ‘Desert Island Food’, broccoli!

recipe-boxSo where do I get the recipes from? In most cases from a magazine or cookbook.  Sometimes online.

For the purposes of this blog, I’ll share links to the sources whenever possible.  (Some of the magazines require subscriptions for access to the recipes online.)

I will not directly post a recipe if it belongs to someone else.  Seems fair, right?  If you have a question about a recipe, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.
