You don't have to skip the weekend brunch with its fine, freshly baked piece of bread and butter or cheese. Since many at AURUM shared the same dilemma: “Eat or leave the piece of bread baked with love by the sister and save the carbohydrates…?” we rolled up our sleeves and tried out some low carb bread recipes for you. This cauliflower bread recipe is simple, healthy and particularly delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 1.5 cups of almond flour (150 g)
  • 0.25 cups grated parmesan cheese, optional (25 g)
  • 5 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of baking soda
  • 5 tablespoons of butter, melted
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Italian spices
  • Sesame seeds or cumin for garnish
  • Fresh parsley and fresh rosemary

Creativity shouldn't stop here: you can experiment with chia, hemp seeds, linseed, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and macadamia nuts, for example!

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C, grease the kitchen tin with a little butter.
  2. Clean, wash, cut the cauliflower and slice it in a food processor or blender until you have a rice-like consistency.
  3. Place the chopped cauliflower in a large bowl and steam for about 4 minutes until it releases the liquid. Let cool down.
  4. Transfer the chopped, cooled cauliflower to a cheese cloth and squeeze as much water out of the cauliflower as possible.
  5. Separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Beat the egg whites with a blender until stiff as fresh snow.
  6. Place 0.25 of the beaten egg white in the bowl with the egg yolks. Add the almond flour, the parmesan, if necessary the garlic, the baking powder, the butter, the salt and the Italian spices. Mix gently with a rubber spatula until everything becomes a mass.
  7. Add the rest of the protein, cauliflower and Italian spices. Mix the ingredients carefully. Do not mix too much as this will break down the protein.
  8. Put the mixture in the greased kitchen pan and sprinkle with sesame, parsley and rosemary. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown.

Let cool, then cut into slices and serve as desired.

Michi: "How I lost 25 kilos with just one workout and healthy eating while maintaining my weekly feast"
Michi has become 73% stronger and 25 kg of fat lighter. Every Tuesday for the past 12 months, Michi Berlinka, 50, rings the bell at 13:10 sharp at Löwenstrasse 53a, AURUM Fit Studio in Zurich. "If someone had told me that I would name a fitness subscription as the best investment under 4000 Swiss francs, I would have thought the person was crazy. After all, I played handball and soccer for over 20 years. Unfortunately, I had suffered a knee injury, developed a great liking for everything that is unhealthy, and weighed 130 kg thanks to a lack of self-discipline. Today I'm the crazy one, already looking forward on Monday to the fitness appointment on Tuesday!"

Chicken egg tapping or chocolate egg hunting? 10 reasons to eat more eggs for your health
Eggs - a pure vitamin and mineral bomb that should not be missed not just at Easter, but also at the daily breakfast table. Eggs are real powerhouses with many valuable nutrients. They are rich in vitamins A, B2, B12, D and folic acid, as well as phosphorus, selenium, iron, zinc and choline. Almost all the proteins and amino acids contained in eggs can be converted and absorbed. And now comes the surprise: egg yolk contains more proteins than the protein itself! Yup, egg yolk consists of about 50% water, 32% fat and 15% proteins. Liquid egg white, on the other hand, is about 90% water and only 10% protein. #sorrynotsorry but so much for the trends of eating only egg white omelette with leeks and spinach on the weekend. Oh yeah, and one thing right up front: the information in this blog post refers exclusively to the chicken eggs and NOT the chocolate eggs.
