Why I Put Cauliflower in my Breakfast (and why you should too)

Why I put Cauliflower in my breakfast


Before you call me crazy, adding cauliflower to your oatmeal is a trick of the trade that us health conscious, body loving gals do to help FEEL full without the added calories (just 25 calories per 100 grams). 

Get excited ladies …  (I need to sell this idea)FAB 6187



Did you know Cauliflower:

  • Fights Cancer
  • Boosts Heart Health
  • Is an Anti-Inflammatory
  • Is rich in Vitamins and Minerals
  • Boosts your Brain Health

And if that is not enough, cauliflower

  • Helps your body detox
  • Help protects the lining of your gut
  • Is an anti oxidant

With all these GREAT benefits, why not consider adding cauliflower to your daily eating?

The good news is that it does not have a strong taste and can often melt into your meals.  I use cauliflower to make mash (instead of potato), pizza base (instead of the traditional wheat/gluten base), add to my stir fry’s and YES to my breakfast!

Here is my breakfast recipe that I eat almost every day

Dana’s Fat Blasting, Energy Boosting Daily Breakfast Oatmeal

30 grams Quinoa Flakes or Traditional Oatmeal (I use Quinoa Flakes as I eat gluten free)

2 teaspoons of Black Chia Seeds

1Tablespoon Coconut Oil

30-40 grams finely grated cauliflower

Add water and cook for 2 minutes 30 seconds on high in the microwave

Then add…

1teaspoon Cacao Powder

20 grams organic Nutrition 180 Whey Protein Powder (available on my website)

40 grams Blueberries

Stir very well until combined.


This breakfast will keep you satisfied until your mid morning meal.  It covers all of my ‘rules’ around eating to speed up your metabolism with Protein/Good Carbs/Good Fats and Fruit BEFORE lunchtime!

A few more facts (just for fun)

I have discovered:

Cauliflower is super high in Vitamin C  

(one serving equals 77% of the daily recommended value)

Cauliflower is also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium and phosphorus

(all great for ageing bodies)

A very good source of fibre

(to keep us regular)

And the list continues …

Vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium and manganese


Fresh is best!  I try and buy my cauliflower with the green leafs in tact!

Let me know what you think of my breakfast recipe – I would love to hear.
