Creamy Cauliflower Risotto with Shrimp

I am a HUGE fan of bread, rice, and pasta.  Add cheese on top of any of those and I’m a happy mama.  However, with the 2B Mindset nutrition program that I’m following lately, those just aren’t in the cards.  At least not all the time, I do still treat myself sometimes, part of what I love about this program!!

However, with this dish, I don’t even miss the rice.  The risotto is so creamy and zesty that even R., Q. and the hubby eat this dish without complaint.

  1. This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  2. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who was doing a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast simply because I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this issue here on your blog.
