My son just saw a dietition for his diabetes and she included a recipe using cauliflower, you can add cheese to it, sour cream and chives, cream cheese and I believe whole cream and butter, to taste, a little pepper and mash for faux mashed potatoes.

This is not diabetic friendly. Carbs are not that good for us. If you have them with a meal, limit the serving to 1/2 cup at a meal and remember to count your total carbs for the day according to what the dietition says you are allowed to have.

Potatoes are very high in carbs. You need to count about 18 grams per 1/2 cup.

You just need to be aware that you can send your blood sugar soaring if you're not very careful with these.

I dont know about the nutrition part ,but they sure sound good and easy to fix might have to try the idea for the holidays.another idea would be to get a few throw away pans and use them lined with foil then you can jusy wrap in the foil freeze then take them out and keep until ready to use.
