Substitutions for a healthy lifestyle. X

Lately, I've been using cauliflower instead of rice and zucchini instead of noodles and pasta. This shit is rad and this whole plate is only 343 calories, including seitan. 

I like zucchini so much more than I like pasta. Pasta always reminds me of being poor and not being able to afford to eat anything except plain pasta, sometimes with tomato sauce. 

Oh, how I'm glad being a poor student is over.

I have made my own pasta a few times recently. It's really easy and melts in my mouth. That coupled with homemade basil and spinach pesto is heaven. High calorie heaven. God. I'm hungry.  


  1. I've been making zucchini or courgette as we call it noodles too. I really fancy trying this too. How do you get the cauliflour like that? Do you just put it in a food processor?

    1. Yeah, I just put it in a blender until it resembles rice. It's so easy. It's crazy. I do have trouble sometimes making it taste not so raw, but i think adding a bit of water/stock/spices with a lid so it steams through a bit really helps make it taste great. I made dahl the other day and added some stock, turmeric and peas to it and it was really good. Loved it. :)
