Note on ingredients: Garlic is in the suspect category of the Bulletproof Diet, because it inhibits alpha brain waves and could affect your mood – and depending on where you get it, could be moldy. For that reason, it’s not recommended that you eat garlic often. Cauliflower can be moderately high in oxalates — a type of antinutrient that can cause muscle pain, kidney stones, or thyroid imbalances. To reduce oxalates, steam cauliflower separately and drain the cooking water before incorporating in this recipe. Black pepper is a suspect spice on the Bulletproof Diet, and highly susceptible to performance-robbing mold toxins. To reduce your risk, omit pepper or grind it fresh using high-quality whole peppercorns.
