GUYS WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT CAULIFLOWER RICE.⠀

As much as we’ve shared a few LoLs about it recently, I think it’s important to point out that I don’t actually hate grated cauliflower.⠀

Let me explain.⠀

There’s nothing wrong with eating grated cauliflower. But what’s not-so-cool is eating it purely because SarahFitness93 made you feel guilty about eating actual rice.⠀

There’s also nothing wrong with eating spiralised courgette. But what’s not-so-cool is eating it purely because a DeborahWellness_RD made you feel guilty about eating real life pasta.⠀

Same goes for ‘SuPeR fOOd’ salads and ‘detox’ juices. ⠀

Juices and salads are cool. In fact, they’re great. But what’s not great is consuming them purely because you’ve been conditioned to feel that eating anything else would be ‘bad’.⠀

I don’t claim to be overly conscientious or the most politically correct person in your instagram feed. I speak before I think often – and I fuck up my grammar on my infographics on a weekly basis.⠀

But when it comes to *way* we talk about food – I strongly believe it fucking matters. And relearning *how* you speak about food is a fundamental part of becoming less weird about it all.⠀

Although I’m aware it’s very possible to call your salad ‘super’, safe in the knowledge there’s nothing magical about it… for most of us, these labels and their connotations really aren’t helpful.⠀

So please don’t mistake my bitterness towards ingrained diet culture for demonising certain foods. You shouldn’t feel shamed for enjoying a green smoothie. Not having a vendetta against food includes green, nutritious ones too. (Not just donuts.)⠀

It’s just – language and labels matter ⚡️⚡️⚡️⠀
