Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a fantastic, plant-based keto recipe that is full of powerful nutrients, fiber and healthy fats.  If you are looking to reduce your meat consumption and get the benefits of ketosis while enjoying great tasting foods than this recipe should be a regular staple at your home.

Cauliflower is full of sulfur compounds called glucosinolates such as the powerful sulforaphane and isothiocyanates which have been studied to be very effective for phase II liver detoxification and as cancer stem cell neutralizing agents.  I am a HUGE fan of doing a lot of cruciferous veggies such as cauliflower, broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, etc.

It is important to either steam, bake, sautee or marinate these in order to soften the hard outer cellulose fibers and make them easier on your digestive system.  Most of us have experienced the gas and digestive challenges that come with consuming too much raw broccoli or cauliflower.  Always best to lightly cook these as in this recipe, ferment (sauerkraut or kimchii as an example), blend/juice or marinate them in vinegar or lemon to make them easier to digest.

Avocado is one of the very best foods you can eat on a regular basis and adding it to vegetable recipes increases the carotenoid anti-oxidant absorption you get from the veggies.  It also provides the healthy fat calories that make this a keto recipe and very satiating so you won’t have food cravings later in the day.

You can try this recipe as a side dish or as a main course if you are doing a plant-based keto program such as what we teach in our Cancer Cleanse program.
