Lauren Volo Photography

When eating a low-carb diet, perhaps one of the most challenging foods to limit or abstain from is potatoes. Luckily, when it comes to texture, cauliflower is a great alternative that can mimic the consistency of starchy potatoes—but with fewer carbohydrates. If you have a waffle maker at home, these flavorful cauliflower hash browns are a creative way to keep the carb count low while kicking your potato cravings to the curb. Use them as a base for some sliced avocado, turkey bacon, and a poached egg, or add a second hash brown on top for a breakfast sandwich.

Up the ante on basic, carb-laden oatmeal with this recipe, which combines hemp hearts, walnuts, and chia seeds, for a keto-conscious, low-carb breakfast that will surely stick to your bones and keep you full for hours. The addition of chopped walnuts and chia seeds also provides omega-3 fatty acids, not to mention giving the dish a more oatmeal-esque texture.

Berry Cauliflower Smoothie

Another way to capitalize on cauliflower’s creamy texture post-blending is to use it as a base in a lower-carb smoothie. When in pursuit of the ideal velvety textured smoothie, adding a dollop of Greek yogurt, a bit of banana, or even avocado is the way to go. However, if trying to keep the carb count low at breakfast time, blended cauliflower can be a tasty lower-carb ingredient swap to consider making when whipping up a smoothie. Capitalize on cauliflower’s creamy texture post-blend by using it as a base in this lower-carb berry smoothie.
