Cauliflower Mash Recipe II

Paleo Cauliflower Mash

Cauliflower Nutrition:

Cauliflower is loaded with vitamin C. Cauliflower is also a superb source of potassium. Skip the oranges and bananas post workout, and roast, boil, steam, or just eat raw, some of this nutritionally dense vegetable.

Cauliflower is also great for your digestive health. A cup of boiled cauliflower delivers about 3.35 g of dietary fiber, which helps clean your digestive system and gets rid of unnecessary substances. Additionally, a substance called glucoraphin is present in it as well, and this appears to have a protective effect on your stomach lining.

New Cauliflower Mash Recipe:

  • 3 Cups Cauliflower   
  • 1 Large Apple    
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil    
  • 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 TBS of Chopped Chives
  • 1 Pinch of Salt 


  • Steam the cauliflower and apple together for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven at 415F.    
  • Mash them together with the oil and spices.   
  • Place the mash into a bowl that goes into the oven, add some cinnamon on top, and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the chopped chives on top. 


Chicken Bone Broth Soup

Chick Broth Soup is amazing food for gut health and immune system booster!

  • Bone Broth helps your joins. Why? Because the health of your joints depends on healthy your collagen is.  And collagen is made up of glycosaminoglycans. What is that? heard of  glucosamine? Yep!
  • Bone Broth helps your hair and skin look sexy. Why? Again because of collagen and as I'm sure you are aware of,  as you age collagen declines.
  • Bone Broth heals your gut!  Why?  Gelatin which is heavy in bone broth and helps the gut heal from leaky gut syndrome and auto immune disorders.  And there was a time when gelatin was one of the most studied nutrients because of it's healing qualities.  Because of modern stress and lifestyle factors, the gut lining which is the thickness of you eyelids becomes too permeable and allows undigested foods paritcles slip through the gut linking and into the blood stream which causes the immune system to freak out and star attacking the foods you eat.   WHALA ! Food sensitivities and allergies !
  • Bone Broth Eliminate Toxins. Why? The liver is your main organ for detoxification and it uses glycine to detoxify. Guess what has a lot of glycine? yep, you guess it. Bone Broth!

Step 1

Buy a or organic whole chicken - Must be organic and free range! Smother it full of grass fed butter, inside and outside the cavity. Season literally with kosher salt and black pepper. Don't be afraid of the salt. And don't throw away the neck and liver. Which is why you want a organic chicken.

Tie the legs. If you don't know how, there are plenty of youtube videos to show you how to do this. If you skip this step, it's ok but do as it will make your meat more juicy.

Step 2

Place in oven at 425 for about 1.5 hours.  Once done, take out and let it cook for about 15 to 20 minutes so you can handle the bird.

Then strip all the meat off the bones and place it in a bowl to eat with your soup and to have for left overs.

Step 3

Place all the bones, and I mean all the bones, heart, liver, skin - Everything from the chicken in a crock pot with water and 2 TBS of a apple cider vinegar to help break down all the bones. You don't need to season it as the chicken should have plenty of seasoning.

If you don't have a crock pot, a regard pot will be fine.  And cook for 8 to 10 hours so you can get all of the amino acids and minerals out of the bones.

Strain all the liquid through a sifter and you should have a broth that looks like this. I like cooking mine for a long time so that it really breaks down all the good stuff.  Some say

Step 4

Optionall. I cut fresh red onions, cilantro, avocado and add fresh squeezed lime to my soup, but remember the broth can be eaten by itself.  You can even have it for breakfast as this what most Eastern culture do.
