1 large head cauliflower cut into florets
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons sour cream
6 cloves garlic divided
Salt and black pepper to taste
Place cauliflower in a steamer over a large pot of boiling water. Steam for 15 minutes until tender. Alternatively, boil cauliflower in salted water for 10 minutes or until fork tender. Remove and drain. Cover with a lid and set aside.
In the same pot, heat the butter over medium high heat. Sauté garlic until fragrant (about 1 minute).
Blend cauliflower and garlic in a food processor on high setting until smooth. You may need to do this in batches of two or three, depending on the size of your processor.
Transfer blended cauliflower into the pot with the garlic. Stir in the sour cream and season with salt and pepper.

Plenty of Plants & Protein

Protein is essential for ensuring we have the raw materials we need to remove toxins out of the body.
The other piece of the equation is that of plants. Plants give us fiber (to bind toxins), vitamins and minerals, and phytochemicals to help protect us from stress. Just remember the framework of healthy removal and transformation of substances in the body as being “plants + protein” then we can think about them with every meal we create.

-large multi-veg salad with chicken
-apple with almond butter
-salmon, asparagus and mushrooms

Exercise favorably alters the hedonic (pleasant sensation) response to food to reduce cravings, and can be a helpful adjunct to other strategies in treating food addiction, binge eating and overeating.
So.... I severely broke my second toe. My first thought was, how am I going to move my body and get my daily exercise? I typically move for 90 to 120 minutes per day (gym in the morning and long walks in the evening).
Besides the pain (LOL), the first thing I noticed was my desire for more food, especially carbohydrates. Craving carbs when in pain, stressed and immobile is a very real thing.
So, I am doing what I can by biking for 10 miles per day and still lifting weights. It is a good reminder that exercise or any movement can help with appetite control and weight management.
