This 20-Calorie Cooking Hack Helped Me Fill Up and Lose Weight

When I started delving deeper into the whole-food, plant-based world, many of plant-based doctors, including John McDougall, MD, talk about eating nonstarchy veggies to fill you up. That's because they have a low calorie density, which means you can eat more volume to fill your belly, but without a lot of calories.

Cauliflower is one of my favorite nonstarchy veggies because the texture is soft when you cook it, and the taste is so mild, it takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. I started adding frozen riced cauliflower to my meals, and it was one little tip that helped me lose COVID weight gain.
