Ok ok fine! I’ll give you the recipe
I switched things up because:
- I hate olives
- I didn’t have turmeric, nor did I know what you can substitute for turmeric
- I had mint in the fridge that seemed like a good idea to use up
So while the idea was the same, the taste actually turned out a little differently, and I think versions both are good!
- 1 head cauliflower
- 1/2 sweet onion
- 1 cup sliced grape tomatoes
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup chopped mint
- 1/2 cup chopped parsley
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
Start by chopping up the cauliflower, and dice the onion. Dump them both into a food processor and pulse until very fine. I used my vitamix (because my food processor is tiny) and I did it in batches, because I didn’t want it to be pureed. The finer you can get the cauliflower, the closer it will taste to bulgur. Add in the sliced tomatoes, lemon juice and olive oil. Toss to coat. Add in your mint, parsley, salt and pepper. I know, it’s kind of a lot of salt, so you can cut back if you want. I added a lot since I left out the olives and I felt like it needed it.’
I’m sorry I didn’t take a prettier picture. I kept meaning to get out my “real” camera, but then I’d get so distracted by eating…
It makes 5 large servings (about 1 1/2 cups). Each serving has ~100 calories, 5g fiber, and 4g protein! (And only 2 WWP+)

I seriously can’t wait to make this again. I made it on Sunday, and packed it as part of my lunch on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
I had a proud moment at the gym this week.
Actually, two proud moments, because the first day, I wondered if I just dreamed it. But no. Really.
I held a plank position for 5 minutes straight. Five.
No side planks, no downward dogs in the middle. Straight up plankin’ it.
Before. During. After.
On Thursday, because I literally wondered if Wednesday was a dream. I’d been working up to it, but the longest I’d done was around 3 minutes Something just clicked, and I decided to just go for it. Now that I know I can, it’s much easier. It makes me realize how much of it is mental!
