The Popular Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes Wins Again

Today I wanted to share a photo with you that I took at a local event last week that was held in Mauna Lani, Hawaii. The event is put on at The Shops at Mauna Lani each year and the restaurants located within the plaza offer a variety of different meals to sample. The event offers great music from local artists, and a silent auction along with the food. This year the event’s name was “Uncorked” which speaks for itself:) It’s a very fun, 2-hour event held outdoors. It was a benefit for the North Hawaii Community Hospital.

Since I’m a health coach I am always checking out the menu options available wherever I go. At this event I was pleasantly surprised by the meal prepared by the Tommy Bahama restaurant. They were serving mashed cauliflower as part of the meal rather than mashed potatoes! I teach my clients on a regular basis the importance of this side-dish-swap. Cauliflower is such a healthier, better low-carbohydrate option than potatoes. And…it tastes better!

This photo was taken at the very end of the evening and the portion of mashed cauliflower is smaller than everyone actually enjoyed on their 7 inch plates. The staff was just starting to pack things up when I decided I needed to take a picture.

More and more restaurants are changing their menus to reflect lower fat and lower carbohydrate meal options. With obesity on the rise in America it’s been a very welcome sight to see this shift starting to take place.

Diva Note: Anytime you are concerned about a restaurant and the availability of meals to meet your weight management needs:

(1) Google the restaurant name to find their menu. 99.9% of all restaurants have their menu available to view. Go prepared by determining what you will be ordering before you arrive.

(2) Google the restaurant name and get their phone number. Call ahead and find out if they will prepare the fish, chicken or other entrees in a way that meets your needs.
