I have seen these cauliflower Mac and Cheese recipes using diced florets, but the first time I made it I had riced cauliflower on hand, so that's what I used and it was so great (and easy) that it's just how I make the recipe now! This is the ultimate KETO comfort food!! Do be mindful and keep your serving size small because, although the carbs from cauliflower are nutrient dense, there are a lot of them if you are trying to keep your carbs fairly low. The good news is, there is also a fair amount of fiber in cauliflower, so it does help counteract the blood sugar/insulin reaction (which ultimately is why we are keeping the carbs low!!). So don't avoid something like this altogether because you are afraid of the carbs (you'll truly be missing out!); but again, keep the serving size limited. If you have people in your fam who are NOT Keto, give this a try! I would bet they will love it too!! A note on dairy: I don't do dairy all the time because I notice if I have too much I have more symptoms of inflammation. However, in order to help support my hormones, when I do have dairy, I do my best to use hormone free! This recipe was adapted from www.dontsweattherecipe.com
