The Big Deal About Cauliflower Rice
You’ve heard about the cauliflower rice trend and chances are you’ve seen it the frozen aisle or fresh produce area of your local store. Maybe you’ve even tried it! Riced cauliflower is a great alternative to starchy sides like rice, bread or pasta that we traditionally build our meals around. It’s ideal for anyone on a low carb, Keto or Paleo diet – or simply those who want to add more veg to their meals. With up to 89% fewer carbs than white rice, riced cauliflower has proven a great aid for people trying to manage diabetes or lose weight - whilst staying full.
With UK obesity levels skyrocketing, we need to move away from processed grains and simple carbohydrates – and move towards eating more nutritious plant-based foods. The NHS recommend that you eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day. They can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced. There's evidence that people who eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke and some cancers. Yet the country’s January total vegetable intake has actually fallen by 7.6 per cent in just three years as consumption stayed the same or fell among most of the population, according to a report by the Food Foundation charity.
The easier we can make it for consumers to add veg to their meals, the healthier we will all be. Fullgreen’s range of riced veggies They contain 100% non-GMO veggies.

Cauliflower is healthy (its superfood qualities are well documented) but not all ‘riced cauliflower’ is created equal. The frozen variants are ‘mushy’ once thawed. And we find riced cauliflower from the fresh produce section has often turned to mold before we get ‘round to eating it.
