Summer Fresh Potato Salad

potatosalad.jpgLet’s face it; potato salad is NOT salad.  And if you’re making it with typical store-bought mayonnaise, it’s filled with some no-good types of fat and chemicals. Potatoes are delicious, and they are A-OK in my book, even though they are often vilified for being one of the “white foods” that are known to raise blood sugar too high, too fast.  However, there are many valuable nutrients in those little tots, and when a cooked potato is cooled, as in potato salad, the starches form a good source prebiotic food that feeds the healthy bacteria that live in your gut, helping them to proliferate.

But what if we actually turned a pile of delicious potatoes into an actual salad that was both delicious and and nutritious and filled with all things summer?  

Master Cleanse Salad

Some of you may have heard of the Master Cleanse in which you spend a few days up to a few weeks drinking a concoction of water with lemon juice, Grade B maple syrup and cayenne pepper.  Now, I’m not going to go into my thoughts and opinions on cleanses as I feel the validity of any type of “cleanse”…

Paleo Cauliflower Wraps

The other day I got my 3 year old to eat cauliflower for breakfast without knowing it.  Sure, I put butter (grass-fed) and jelly (organic) on it, but he ate cauliflower.  For breakfast. And he didn’t know it.

I enjoyed mine with avocado, smokey kale kraut, eggs and hot sauce.

How did I do such a thing?  I magically turned the cauliflower into round, flat patties, sort of like a cross between a pancake and a tortilla.  You could probably use these for tortillas if you wanted.  Or a small round sandwich.

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 head of organic cauliflower, florets only
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp psyllium husk powder (optional)
  • 2 large eggs
  • a few shakes of salt

Here’s what I did.
