SuperFood Cauliflower Pizza Crust
The addition of Chia Seeds and Quinoa makes this a powerhouse of tasty healthy eating goodness.
Healthy food is all the craze these days. And for good reason, life is hard, and staying healthy is harder every passing day. In America obesity is a huge issue. Our food supply is full of poisons, preservatives, and sugar. The need for ways to eat better has never been more important. This gave way to diets like the Keto diet, Paleo diet, Atkins, South Beach Diet.
I've researched each extensively and can tell you they all work. But each diet isn't right for everyone. Like the Keto diet. I have friends losing tons of weight on Keto. It works. Go find an article online and read the comments section. You'll find people stating how they are off their meds from doing Keto. The diet is full of leafy greens, quality fats, and low carbs. The way it works is 70% fats, 25% proteins & 5% carbohydrates. If you need to lose a lot of weight I would suggest Keto. But for me, I'm more of a Paleo eater. Think caveman diet. Pretty much eating real food and staying away from processed foods.
