Nothing White But Cauliflower
“Nothing white but cauliflower” is an expressing I often use when teaching clients about deciphering whether any food is a good Paleo option or not.
Of course, one could argue that other foods, along with this crunchy crucifer are also Paleo, including garlic, onions and turnips, but what I’m referring to are refined items that might grace one’s plate.
Note my hesitation to refer to those items as food, as most are not only completely devoid of anything remotely nourishing, they’re also quite harmful to our bodies.
Think white sugar, white flour, white rice, white bread and the trend can be seen.
However, if you’d like to
- increase your blood sugar abnormally
- create an acidic pH in your body
- raise your chances of developing high cholesterol, heart disease and inflammation throughout the whole body
then be sure to disregard this little tidbit of advice, as the white, processed (non) foods will help facilitate all of the above, and then some.
Otherwise, go for color!
If, at the end of the day, one can say they’ve seen all the colors of the rainbow, via loads of fresh veggies and some fruit, make an appearance on their plates when all meals are considered, it’s a far healthier, nutrient rich way to help the body on its way to optimal health.
And, it’s oh-so-Paleo to boot!
