Why Cauliflower Rice Instead of Regular Rice in a Phase 1 Meal?
Phase 1 of the Ideal Protein does not allow traditional rice of any kind. This includes brown rice, white rice, jasmine rice, etc. Instead cauliflower rice is a great substitute. Traditional rice is high in carbohydrates, however, cauliflower rice is low in carbs and low in calories. Ideal Protein Phase 1 restricts carbs so rice is definitely a no-no in phase 1. Cauliflower is an easy to digest vegetable and unlike rice, it’s lectin free. 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. Once adding the cauliflower rice to food, like Gumbo or Ettoufee, you may not even notice it’s not rice! However, if you love traditional rice, have no fear! It will be reintroduced into your diet in Phase 3.
