Testimony of the Day

“I just wanted to send my thank yous. I have been following you for a while, have all of your cookbooks and love your recipes. Recently (the last two months), my weight loss stalled. I’ve lost 70 lbs since last year and have another 50 to go.

I was keeping my carbs under 30g but didn’t pay any attention to my protein and fat. 1 1/2 weeks ago, I started tracking everything. 5% carbs, 10% protein and 80 percent fat. Although my fat intake isn’t quite there, I (counter-intuitively) upped my fat dramatically. Lo and behold, I’m losing again! I’ve spent decades overweight, following a 1200 calorie diet, low fat and whole grains. Amazing that now I’m eating almost 2000 calories, low carb/high fat diet, I’m still shedding the weight! Thank you for all of your advice! This has been an amazing transformation of my life!” -Maryann

rice salad

This is an easy side dish to prepare the night before. I brought it to a family get-together and it was quite a hit!

1/2 cup chicken bone broth
6 cups “riced” cauliflower
1 tsp curry powder
salt and pepper to taste
5 green onions, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 (6.5 ounce) jars marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
1 cup Spectrum Organic Mayo
1/4 cup chopped parsley

Combine chicken stock and cauliflower rice in a medium saucepan. Cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Then drain any excess liquid.

In a small bowl, mix together artichoke marinade, mayonnaise, and curry powder. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine artichoke hearts, green onions, green bell pepper, parsley, and celery. Mix in “rice”, then mix in reserved marinade mixture. Cover and chill overnight. Serve cold. Makes 12 servings.

    Maria, thank you for this blog! I printed so many of your recipes and am going to buy your books. I have a question – several of your recipes call for Almond flour. Is there an alternative that would be a little less money? I went to the store today and found tons of different flours, all by Bob’s Red Mill. Some options are white whole wheat flour, whole wheat pastry flour (those 2 are the least expensive), brown rice, garbanzo & fava, semolina, whole wheat graham, whole grain oat, whole grain buckwheat and spelt flours.

  • Thanks Lisa! I appreciate all your support.

    As for more info on almond flour, please read the area on the right where I have an icon to click on about alternative sweeteners and almond flour. That will help a lot to understand why I use almond flour. I also write a lot about it in my books.

    I order mine through http://store.honeyvillegrain.com/blanchedalmondflour5lb.aspx
    I get discounts via email and then a group of friends split the 25 lb bag!

    I made this recipe with canned artichoke hearts from Trader Joe’s and added Italian spices rather than the curry along with some oil & vinegar. I also steamed the cauliflower along with daikon radish & carrots and threw them all into my food processor afterwards. My hubby who normally will not touch any of my creations had some for one of his snacks instead of his normal snack of muffin or cookie. Thanks so much for your recipes!!!
    I’m having trouble deciding on which book of yours would be best for me.

  • Thanks SO much for your kind words!

    As for books, the Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism has so many pieces of helpful information in it. BUT the new Secrets to Controlling your Weight Cravings and Mood is very helpful if you are dealing with emotional eating/anxiety/depression and other brain issues:)

    Happy Reading!
