Ahhhh. Dieting. It is the bane of my existence, to be honest. See, I love rice. However, my personal nutritionist has told me (repeatedly) that I need to cut down on rice if I want to lose weight. When I came across Caulibabe’s cauliflower rice, a lightbulb shone in my brain and I asked my nutritionist if this is something that I might be able to incorporate into my diet. To my delight, he said I could definitely incorporate cauliflower rice into my diet. And the best part? Although the texture may be a little different, it tastes just as good as rice and helps curb my cravings for white rice.
The interesting part is that Caulibabe’s pre-portioned and pre-blanched cauliflower rice wasn’t actually made with the intent to start a business. Being confined in social isolation, their founder merely decided to finally go on that overdue healthy lifestyle (which included adapting a healthy diet, of course!) This called for the search for a low-carb rice alternative and out of all of the options out there, cauliflower rice happened to be her preference. After making some at home and sharing it with friends and family, Caulibabe was born due to popular demand.
Since it is a rice alternative, you can have a ton of fun with Caulibabe. In fact, their customers have made steak rice, kimchi rice, sushi rolls, and cauliflower oatmeal with their products amongst other things. “It’s always fun seeing how everyone consumes it as though they are eating rice,” they share. “We’ve even got a customer who pairs it with Hot Pot!” The options are limitless!
There are actually a lot of reasons why you might want to switch to Caulibabe’s cauliflower rice:
It is low in calories.
According to the experts behind Nutritionix, a cup of cauliflower rice only contains 25 calories. That’s less than 1/4th of the calories found in white rice. In terms of fiber, a cup of cauliflower rice contains 2 grams, while white rice contains less than a gram with only 0.6 grams. It’s great for your gut!
It’s highly nutritious.
Cauliflower is packed with nutrition and is a good source of antioxidants. Similar to other cruciferous vegetables, cauliflower is also particularly high in glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, two groups of antioxidants that have been shown to slow the growth of cancer cells.
It is pre-portioned for easy defrosting.
To save you the hassle of defrosting in bulk and then putting the rest back in the freezer, Caulibabe offers custom pre-portioning and packaging so that it’s convenient for solo cooking or family-sized cooking. You can choose from 100 grams, 200 grams, and 500 grams; or even get them in assortment as needed.
It is pre-blanched and ready to enjoy.
Caulibabe’s products are fuss-free and easy to enjoy. Since their cauliflower rice is pre-blanched, all you need to do is defrost it and microwave or pan-fry it for 3 to 5 minutes.
The mega bonuses for me when it comes to Caulibabe is that the storage and preparation are easy peasy! You can simply store their cauliflower rice in the freezer and it can last up to 90 days in there! Then, when you’re ready to eat it, just defrost it prior to cooking and you can microwave or pan fry it for 3 to 5 minutes. That’s it!
