Mash it up!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately I am on my cut and have been a little sluggish and tired lately mixed with some issues at work I just haven’t had the time.

I have been hitting my steamer and some FroPro hard lately. To do with the steaming I have been making cauliflower mash and loving it. The volume that you can get out of it is amazing.

What have I been steaming? Fish, chicken, and the cauliflower. After my last trip to Trader Joe’s I have been enjoying their Dover Sole and MahiMahi so much that I picked up some of the salmon and tuna that I plan to cook up this week. Turns out when you are eating a variety of protein sources you end up having what you used to buy in bulk go bad. I bought a decent amount of fresh chicken and it all went bad by the time I decided to eat chicken so I am sticking with the frozen and pulling it out as needed. I have been seasoning the fish with some of the spices that I found at World Market. Check out the video that I posted to see some of the options. I am still at work so I am going to get to the mashed cauli recipe and will post some more later. Look for another post today. Making up for lost time!

The first thing I did was break the green off the cauliflower heads, I made two since I really like cauliflower and broccoli so I knew I would need a lot, and threw it all in the steamer to cook up till it was soft. Once it was done I put it all in Tupperware so that I can store it in the fridge and mash as needed. Here is what I had with most of the meals:

200g of steamed cauliflower

30g Trader Joe’s Tzatziki

1 egg

garlic power

salt

I also have been swapping out the egg for 62g of egg whites to cut down on the fat if I need but the whole egg makes it a bit more creamy. I heat up the cauliflower in the microwave with some water in the bowl for 2 minutes to make sure it is soft and this helps cook the egg. I toss it all in my food processor and grind still it reaches the consistency that I am looking for! For 200g of cauliflower the macros are 12c/7f/11p. Again you can cut the fat by using egg whites instead of a full egg or cut the egg all together I just like it as a binder and need the protein. Also you can substitute out the Tzatziki with ricotta, swiss or any other cheese that would melt down. Have fun with it! I plan to add some red pepper to mine tonight based on Eric Johnson’s post on the Macro Magic FaceBook page.

The other thing that has been hitting my sweet tooth lately has been protein fluff/fropro/profro/ice cream what ever you want to call it. I make the standard fluff then at the end hit it with about 4 cups of blended ice. Check out some of the pictures I’ll try to record tonight’s. I also have some goodies from nuts.com and Lana’s Egg whites that I am going to do a review of. Enjoy and don’t forget to comment and checkout the YouTube Channel for more content.
