I always have a batch of grated cauliflower (aka cauli-rice) in my fridge. Not only it's keto friendly but it's one of the most convenient foods to have on hand. And as you may know, food prep is key to success when following a healthy low-carb diet!

Inspired by my Quick & Easy Gremolata, this simple low-carb side dish is packed full of flavour. Best of all, it takes less than 10 minutes to cook and serve with any protein. Serve this fragrant cauliflower rice with slow cooked lamb, roasted salmon or crispy chicken thighs.

What's your favourite low-carb side? 😊

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
