Mashed Potatoes & Gravy

Mashed Potatoes & Gravy

Cauliflower mashed potatoes are paired with a hearty mushroom gravy in this take on the traditional favorite. This indulgent dish is worthy of any holiday table but is just as good any night of the week.

Cauliflower is a nutrient rich vegetable that is excellent for supporting a strong immune system and optimum health. Cauliflower is incredibly high in vitamin C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as boron, calcium, molybdenum, and tryptophan. It is also a good source of high quality protein that is easily assimilated into the body. Cauliflower contains powerful anti-cancer compounds such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane which are particularly beneficial for helping to prevent breast, cervical, ovarian, colon, stomach, and prostate cancers.

Potatoes are an important food for those who are heavy thinkers and those recovering from stress damage and adrenal exhaustion. They are also particularly beneficial for depression, insomnia, sleep disorders, brain fog, and stress related illnesses. Potatoes are also known to be good for promoting cardiovascular health and are highly beneficial for reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke, atherosclerosis, and COPD.

Garlic is one of the world’s oldest medicines and is an incredibly potent spice that can ward off a variety of illnesses and diseases. It has amazingly high levels of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C and B-6 and minerals such as selenium, calcium, copper, and iron. Garlic also contains very strong antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, and anti-viral properties.

Mushrooms have powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can effectively regulate inflammation in the heart, joints, organs, and tissues making them especially good for those who suffer with arthritis, heart disease, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Mushrooms also contain an antioxidant compound called L-ergothioneine which is known to be incredibly important for cognitive function, eye health, reproductive health, and lung health.
