The poor old white potato gets a bit of a bad press these days doesn’t it? In actual fact, I’m not dead against the odd potato. They can have a place in the healthy, balanced diet of an active individual – providing an array of nutrients and healthy carbohydrates – when eaten at the right time. However, at times where you’re not so in need of carbohydrates, if you have more of a sedentary lifestyle for example, cauliflower can provide a great alternative to the potato. Cauliflower mash is a fantastic side to a meal or a topping for a shepherd’s or fish pie. Cauliflower is jam packed with nutrients that can help with weight loss, intestinal health, immunity, cancer protection and reducing risk of cardiovascular disease.
