For Paleo dieters, grains are off limits, because they’re thought to have what’s known as “antinutrient properties,” which means they bind to the vitamins and minerals in the foods you eat, preventing your body from properly absorbing them. So what does that mean for your stir-fry obsession or love for rice and beans? It means you make this recipe, which substitutes cauliflower for rice and proves that your tasty favorites need not be on the no-no list any more.
