Why Cauliflower Grits Instead Grits in the Ideal Protein Shrimp and “Grits”?
Phase 1 of the Ideal Protein does not allow traditional grits of. Instead cauliflower grits is a great substitute. Traditional grits is high in carbohydrates, however, cauliflower is low in carbs and low in calories. Ideal Protein Phase 1 restricts carbs so grits are definitely a no-no in phase 1. Cauliflower is an easy to digest vegetable. It contains vitamins and minerals including folate, vitamin A & C, and is a good source of dietary fiber.
Cauliflower can also improve immune function and lower blood pressure. Although it can be bland when unseasoned, our chef’s add season it well.
