When I first made the switch to the paleo diet, I was honestly surprised at how much refined carbs I was used to having. Take rice for example. By simply swapping out rice for cauliflower florets, I cut my calories by almost a fourth without meaning to, leaving more room for healthy fats and protein. This recipe for paleo turmeric cauliflower rice pairs well with Asian-inspired dishes and the fluffy texture won’t make you miss regular rice at all.
