Exactly.

The recipe listed is great and has all things I love but it sure doesn't sound like a "healthy" alternative. Maybe compared to potatoes but cream cheese and butter certainly isn't low cal. It does sound good though. Look forward to trying this and seeing if I can slip it past DD.

I use one package of frozen cauliflower. steam and smash it with 2 wedges of laughing cow (about 35 cals. each) a dash of milk (i like mine really smooth) 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar and garlic salt & pepper to taste. It's super fast and the dh loves it.

I have but I think Sharon's recipe is not what Ali had in mind. It looks delicious, but much higher in fat (and taste) than the one I use.

4 cups Cauliflower
1-2 TBS of a butter type spread (I like the one with canola oil)
2 TBS fat free half & half
salt
Pepper

Steam Cauliflower till very soft. Put in food processor with the rest. Adjust to taste by adding more or any of the above.

It will taste more like mashed potatoes but the "mouth feel" is not quite the same.

You are right about the calories and fat, Callisto - that's why it fit in with the Atkins diet...lots of fat, no carbs. We all know better now - right? It was fun while it lasted.

Ali's the host, not the trainer. This came from the Trainer Tips that Jillian and Bob give. But having seen Ali 6 weeks post baby, I think she's listening to whatever Jillian tells her to do, probably including eating steamed mashed califlower.

Ah. Knowing carbs are a big problem, a higher protein diet for me might be good. I admit, I love the fact that Adkins allows "salami and cream cheese" as a meal. I love that combo. I love cream cheese in all forms.

Oh me too! In fact, the Atkins diet worked for me and my cholesterol did not increase, either. Of course, you can't eat that way forever. Sigh.
