Eat your cauliflower - it doesn't just taste good - it's good for yah! Interesting read

http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=13

<snip>
Information gathered for a large-scale study called the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) has shown cauliflower to be an especially popular cruciferous vegetable in 10 western European countries, tying for first place with cabbage for the vegetable consumed most frequently. Here is how cauliflower stacked up against other cruciferous vegetables as a percentage of all vegetables eaten: e cauliflower (25%); white cabbage (13%), and cabbage "unspecified" (12%). It is also interesting to compare cauliflower with broccoli in the study findings since cauliflower accounted for a greater percentage of total vegetable consumption than broccoli (18%).

Some is punning, some is wordplay or even referential stuff. I never tried it until after a few years of seeing pun threads on DU. With a little practice, it comes easy--anyone can do it. The hard part is shifting mental gears back when there's a serious, tragic thread and and all your ideas are horrendously inappropriate.

And who can forget Popeye eating his spinach for strength.

It was all hooey. My brother told me that spinach's high iron levels went unchecked for a long time until somebody discovered they put the decimal point in the wrong place in the original research.

Cooked carrots don't do it for me but a few might be acceptable and add a little color/sweetness.

It is funny but although I eat lots of raw cauliflower and some frozen, I hadn't actually cooked fresh cauliflower in years. Only started again about 10 years ago. I forgot how delicious and tender it is when fresh.

But we once boiled a smoked ham butt with cabbage and both were fantastic! And best cabbage I ever had!

And a Hawaiian roommate showed me how to do 'Luau Pig' in the oven and I've done it many times since. So easy, with liquid smoke (Mrs. Wright's) and a little rock salt. Falling-off-the-bone goodness!

91. Any smoked fatty meat will do. Well, not smoked fish!

I shared an office with a black lady for a few years , whose family was ironically from about 20 mile away from mine in South Arkansas. She became a good friend and turned me on to using smoked Turkey legs with any type of greens. It is truly magical and actually better than smoked pork. It is just easier for me to find smoked pork products than turkey. Seems like overkill to fire up the smoker to do a few turkey parts.

Now when I smoke a turkey and use the carcass to make smoked turkey and Andouille gumbo...best thing you will ever eat!

9. Oven roasted cauliflower is one of my all time favorite things. SO easy to make and

incredibly, wonderfully delicious. Roasting brings out all sorts of flavors, majorly yum.

Seriously stupid easy to make.

4 servings
ACTIVE TIME 10 min
TOTAL TIME 45 min

INGREDIENTS

1 medium head cauliflower (2 1/2 to 3 pounds), cut into 1 1/2-inch-wide florets (8 cups)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt

PREPARATION

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 450°F.
Toss cauliflower with oil and salt in a large bowl. Spread in 1 layer in a large shallow baking pan (1 inch deep) and roast, stirring and turning over occasionally, until tender and golden brown, 25 to 35 minutes.

Yup, that simple. Loves it.

Guy was from a NOLA shrimping family and moved to Northern Virginia for a while to take over a seafood market. He soon met an analyst from the nearby CIA HQ who happened to be a gourmand, so they team-taught our classes.

My Cajun teacher had a wonderful name: Moe Cheramie.

And when the course was done, Moe gave me a certificate as an 'Honorary Cajun.'

27. Oh HELL no! Pasta RULES. It's not the pasta making people fat, it's the sauce that's put on

it!

Keeping sauces simple and pure, with real veg, real cheeses, seafood, ragus, etc, makes it excellent fuel for the body. Also, interestingly enough, tagliatelli has the lowest amount of carbs.

Carbs aren't the enemy. Artificial ingredients and gigantic portions are!

Rule of thumb, portions are no bigger than your fist, and average 100 grams, that goes for meat veg and sides.

Italians really do eat pasta every day for either lunch or evening meal, and the gorgeous people on the streets of Milan, Rome and Florence aren't obese! It's affordable and healthy too!

Although, I have to say that alternative forms of cauliflower that you mention are very interesting. Not sure I have the patience to get all fiddly these days though.

41. Don't hate me, but ramen is just horrendously unhealthy eating. The instant noodles

are deep fried and have an ingredients list longer than some dictionaries.

1 cup is 1 serving, which contains 300 calories. It contains 13 grams of fat (9 g saturated fat), 1060 mg of sodium and the carbohydrates come from refined white flour.

And that's just the noodles, it doesn't even take into account the weird, artificial and mysterious ingredients in the flavor packets.

But damn, I do love their crab and shrimp flavored ones a couple times a year.

That stuff in the packets is a salty horror. The real thing made with a broth that takes a day or more to develop a depth of flavor and hand-made noodles? Totally different thing.

It's like the difference between soup your grandma made and a can of Campbell's chicken noodle.

37. I like it pickled! I like almost any veggie pickled.

 

I am a pickle person. Some of you know what I mean.

42. Pickled cauliflower is amazing.

I buy big jars of mixed pickles veg and eat all the califlower first. The rest gets eaten, but with less gusto.

47. And, since it has become the darling of the "low carb" crowd,

it is generally too expensive for some of us. There are few things I love more than roasted cauliflower, but I usually have to settle for other veggies. I hate it when food items become trendy. Cauliflower used to be dirt cheap. So were kale, beets, halibut, walnuts, almonds... Not any more. My grandmother would be spinning in her grave if she knew what oxtails cost these days.

That's the trick. They like it, too.

67. It is super hard, if you live on a wooded lot.

Lots of year-round shade. Lots of squirrels, raccoons and opossums that eat any produce that gets planted. Believe me, I tried.

89. Yeah, the lack of sun could be a problem

I've resorted to things like putting grow pots on ropes, etc to keep them away from pests. That might not work with squirrels, though. Here the big problem is just squirrel-sized slugs.

63. I don't consider that one a fad.

I jumped in during the 1990s. I haven't looked back. I'm in better shape than I look, and I would probably be dead or in prison, if not for a cheap membership to a gym that has a pool and some good classes. Exercise is great for dealing with stress, something of which I have had more than my share of since the Busheviks stole my job from me and forced me into a retirement for which I am not ready.

72. I'm in worse shape than I look, and my skinny visage is nothing to look at

I was never a big eater, and jaw injuries long ago complicated things further.

I'm sorry to hear you had to retire without wanting to. Some can't wait and others never want to. I always loved working. Now I get my satisfaction from volunteer work.

But I really should probably start working out...

I still make'em with black beans, but they don't taste the same this far from the islands.

We are a few weeks out, but it is nuttier than cauliflower. Roast it, with garlic, fresh oregano,olive oil with Parmesan.

66. Eat your slimy okra or else!



It wasn't until I had grilled okra on a visit to Vietnam that I came to love it. The setting helped--on a restaurant patio on the river in Saigon. Plus they gave us hibachi grills and we cooked it ourselves on our table.

Now I love my slimy okra!

71. Fried with garlic, onion, scotch bonnet pepper and tomato with either shrimp

or snapper (or both) and cooked down with brown stew sauce.
I learned to love veg because my siblings loved the meat way more so I always had lots to eat

Cauliflower cheese is awesome IMO. Admittedly, the stuff does give you gas, so it should be consumed in moderation. It is very nutritious, so everyone should try it once in a while.

99. I love broccoli. I have heart failure and with it comes every problem

 

in the world plus beginners diabetes. I am an old bachelor and don't like to spend a lot of time planning and preparing a meal. I started eating one huge crown of broccoli a day for a couple weeks and noticed I would feel better the next day. I didn't have the bloating I usually have at night and I just had a better overall feeling the next day. Nothing specific, jus a gerneral better feeling.

If you try it, don't look for anything big, just a better feeling of well being
