Hope everyone is doing well. So many new names out there. Wishing you all the best. This has been my lifestyle for a while but like everyone,  I too fall off and get right back on. My weight loss as far as pounds has been on hold and that's ok. I feel the inches going bye bye so that makes me happy. Anywho, hugs to everyone. . Btw I moved from Miami. We bought a beautiful home in Port Saint Lucie. We love it.

General Discussion / Low Carb Cauliflower Tater Tots
« on: August 18, 2014, 07:35:14 PM »
They came our so fluffy and yummy. I was filled with 3 and 2 soft boiled eggs. So easy to make. (from Lauren G)


Cauliflower Tater Tots
1/2 head large cauliflower
1 Tbs. coconut oil/butter/ghee
2 eggs
4 tsp. coconut flour (stir the flour with a fork, then measure) (get coconut flour here)
3/4 tsp. unrefined salt
1/2 tsp. Herbes de Provence, crushed (optional)
2 tablespoons (about) coconut oil/ghee/lard for cooking the tots
Lime Avocado Sauce, for dipping
1 avocado
Juice of 1 lime
Salt, to taste
Recommended tools
Mini ice cream scoop, find it here or at a cooking store

Piece the cauliflower into florets, then place the florets into a food processor. Pulse for about 10 seconds, until it resembles fine grains of rice.
In a large skillet, heat the 1 Tbs. of oil over medium heat. Add the crumbled cauliflower, stir to coat, then cover and cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove the cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until softened. Turn off the heat and let cool until no longer hot.
Optionally, transfer the cauliflower to a bowl, but I prefer to save the time and I mix up the batter right in the skillet. Add the coconut flour, eggs, salt, and optional Herbes de Provence to the cauliflower mixture and stir until well combined.
Heat another skillet over medium heat and add a spoonful of cooking fat to coat the bottom.
To make the tater tots, I highly recommend using a mini ice cream scoop, which is also called a "cookie dough scoop" and you can find it here. This is an easy way to get uniformly-sized, ideal-height tater tots. Using the scoop or just a spoon, drop the batter onto the hot skillet. If using a spoon, use 1/2 Tbs. of batter per tot and make it about 1/2 inch thick.
Cook until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes, then flip and cook until the other side is golden. (To flip the small tots easily, I push the tot to the side of the skillet and use the side of the skillet to tip the tot onto the other side.)
Add more fat to the pan and repeat with remaining batter.
Enjoy while warm with optional Lime Avocado Sauce. To make the avocado sauce, blend the ingredients in a food processor until creamy.
Tots are best within an hour or preparing. Store leftover tots in an airtight container in the fridge and warm briefly in a skillet or in the oven before serving.

Feel free to double the recipe, but you'll need a large skillet to cook the whole cauliflower in one batch. If necessary, you can cook the cauliflower in batches if it doesn't fit into your skillet.

General Discussion / ketones

So why such mixed emotions being in ketosis? I want to buy some sticks but read different opinions.  Just curious on your thought. Is it bad? Should it be done long term? Can it affect your organs?

So I have stuck with my low carb, high fat lifestyle. One of the things that I added is what is called a bulletproof coffee.

I have found that it really does curve the appetite and its actually yummy.. Anyone here try it yet..
