Cauliflower Fritters
 
These little guys have saved me this past week. I've had them as a snack, lunch, and they have been my go to whenever I was craving carbs. That's because somehow they taste like a buttery biscuit. Don't believe me? Try them for yourself, they only take 10 minutes. Warning that you might want to make a double batch, as you will probably eat the first batch immediately.

Eggs have gotten a bad rap through the years with the whole high cholesterol thing. But current studies have shown that the consumption of eggs does not actually raise cholesterol, and in fact it actually promotes heart health and weight loss. That is as long as you eat the yolk too. None of this egg white only stuff! All the good nutrients are in the yolk. So indulge in the extra 40 calories, it’s not going to hurt your waist line. My two favorite nutrients found in eggs are Choline and B-12. Choline is a neurotransmitter that is awesome for brain health, and it also helps to reduce inflammation. B-12 is an essential nutrient to the body and is hard to get if you don’t eat meat. In fact eggs are one of the only vegetarian sources of B-12. The benefits to this nutrient are endless, everything from regulating your nervous system, aiding digestion, reducing depression, weight loss, and even energy. There is also Lutein, found in the egg yolk, which can do wonders for your eyes and help prevent macular degeneration and cataracts. In Chinese medicine eggs are a great Qi and Blood builder. They also help to moisten dryness in the body, such as dry skin and hair, or even a dry cough.
