Made a Cauliflower "Potato" Salad

I put together a "potato" salad using cauliflower instead of potatoes. I do like potatoes but I eat way too much of them and have been trying to find alternatives. I added black olives, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs and it isn't half bad. Not as good as the real thing but pretty good. I really need to cut back on cheese too. It is one of my food weaknesses and again I eat way too much of it. Bread is another problem for me. I started using skinny bagels and just cutting back on bread. I really would like to shed the extra ten pounds I gained when I semi-retired two years ago. I've pretty much been carrying 8-10 pounds more than I'd like (I'm used to being skinny). Experimenting in the kitchen may be my answer. Do you like to try new recipes?

I could do with losing the same amount as you, but I'm not going to try until after Christmas. I don't like cauliflower anyway

Yes, it's hard to lose around the holidays. I'm sure I'll cheat.

The cauliflower potato salad sounds good to me. I am a vegetarian, and not a foodie at all, so I eat the same things all the time. I do not like to cook either, so it is good that I am a vegetarian.

What do you eat? I don't eat meat either though I do splurge and eat shrimp sometimes as well as turkey chili.

@suziecat7 Well, I do not eat fish either. I eat lots of salads, beans, and all the vegetarian-friendly products like breaded chicken patties and veggie burgers. Love peanut butter sandwiches and oatmeal too.

@Corbin5 How do chicken and vegetarianism go together?

I quite like cauloflower so this may be an idea I would try. As for giving up cheese, that would be a step too hard.

There really is nothing like potatoes. But I need to try to cut back.

Sounds good, with the exception of the olives. I hate them. And using them in anything would ruin the dish for me.

Another olive disliker. Hmm. Maybe some celery would have been good.

Some people don't like olives. Onions would have been good too but I didn't have any on hand.

I love bread - but it must be whole wheat or bran.

A funny song! Why do you think you eat too many potatoes? Does one get fat from potatoes? That would be bad news for me. I love potatoes. If I never ate a noodle again in my life, I wouldn't suffer. Yet some days without potatoes - horrible. :-) I couldn't live in a country with a mainly potatoe-free cuisine.
