Easter is a great time to host a holiday brunch for friends and family. But typical breakfast-style foods can be carbohydrate-heavy and packed with ingredients that cause health problems for many people. To satisfy your guests and help them avoid an unpleasant carb crash later in the day, Amy Lacey recommends serving dishes featuring a secret ingredient that promotes better health and won’t weigh them down: cauliflower.
“Cauliflower can help create elegant and delicious versions of your favorite breakfast dishes minus the gluten, grains, and other ingredients that can lead to inflammation, weight gain, and a host of other health issues,” says Lacey, author of Cali’flour Kitchen: 125 Cauliflower-Based Recipes for the Carbs You Crave. “Cauliflower is a versatile and healthy substitute for the carbs you crave, without any of the guilt. You can still eat your favorite dishes and enjoy the peace of mind that you’re doing what’s right for everyone’s health.”
Lacey is the founder of Cali’flour Foods, a national brand famous for its grain-free cauliflower-based pizza crusts, crisps, flatbreads, pasta, and more. After being diagnosed with lupus and other autoimmune conditions, she used dietary changes to combat her pain, inflammation, and other symptoms. Upon giving up gluten and processed sugar, her health instantly improved. But Lacey wasn’t ready to forgo her favorite foods. Instead, she set out to recreate them using cauliflower—a versatile superfood with abundant health benefits—and began selling her crusts online and in stores, to national acclaim. Now for the first time, she is sharing her award-winning recipes with the world.
