Money.com published an interesting article a few days ago naming the top ten things that Americans have stopped purchasing. What particularly caught my attention were the six edibles mentioned: bread, cupcakes, chewing gum, soda, cereal, and Chef Boyardee. It looks like even those that follow the standard American diet are becoming more carb and gluten conscious these days. What do you think? It appears that more and more people are beginning to question conventional nutrition wisdom. I can’t remember the last time I bought any of these things, except for soda. It wasn’t until 2010 that I quit my Diet Coke habit (we’re talking Diet Coke for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and in-between). When was the last time you bought any of this stuff?
As promised, I have another delicious cauliflower rice recipe for you. This rice tastes pretty spot-on to the one my mom used to make when I was growing up. What makes Mexican rice special is the lovely tomato flavor. I sometimes come across recipes that use chili powder, but I think it overpowers the tomato. Garlic, salt, cumin, and a pinch of black pepper. That’s all you need. I like to take a tiny shortcut and use prepared salsa to replace what would normally be a tomato puree. Just make sure the salsa doesn’t have any added sugar in it.
