White Potatoes are NOT the devil in the Paleo world! A lot of Paleo-holics choose to include Organic White Potato in their diet. I generally avoid it unless I am training for a race or am not concerned about maintaining a weight goal.

One of my favorite Paleo food substitutions is Cauliflower in place white potato. I can’t lie and say that it “Tastes just like potato” but I can tell you that it is pretty darn close.

Did you know that Cauliflower has awesome healing benefits and daily nutritional benefits?

  • A great source of vitamin C & K, protein, riboflavin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, and potassium.
  • Studies show it can help fight cancer
  • Boosts your heart health when eaten regularly
  • Healthy for gut and digestion
  • It tastes delicious!
