I recently started the journey to lose some of this extra weight. My goal is to lose at least 30 pounds. All I keep thinking is, damn that's a lot. I was always super skinny until I started having kids and then boom with each one. I love my baby's, but they did a hell of a job on my body.
After talking to a friend who is doing a low carb diet, I decided to give it a shot. With that said, I am now trying out new foods and recipes, to stay on the low carb side. I'd heard of cauliflower tots before, but had no idea just how delicious they'd be!
I never thought that I would be able to give up bread and pasta, but there are so many alternatives that are lower carb like this recipe for Cucumber Noodles + Spicy Sesame Soy Dressing or this Low Carb Cauliflower Breadsticks.
After seeing all of these options I decided to try some myself. Here is one of these, these keto cauliflower tots are amazing. I didn't use eggs or breadcrumbs in this recipe, just some low fat cheddar, flax seed meal, cauliflower, red peppers, chopped onions, and salt and pepper to keep the carb count lower.

Can you eat cauliflower on a keto diet?
Cauliflower is likely the greatest low-carb vegetable ever. It's extremely versatile, and with only 4% carbs it can even fit ketogenic cooking. What makes cauliflower so popular is that it has a similar texture to potatoes, but without all the carbs. Interestingly, it contains almost as much vitamin C as oranges.
Can you eat too much cauliflower on a keto diet?
“You can save the calories and carbs from a regular pizza crust by using a cauliflower crust, but if you load it with meat and cheese you've negated your healthy swap,” explains Lincoln. While everyone's tolerance is different, too much cauliflower can create G.I. distress, like excess gas and bloating.
