Dr Jockers Comments

This is a beautiful and tasty, plant-based keto recipe that is anti-inflammatory and fat burning.  This can be used as a main course or as a side dish depending upon what else you are serving.  If you are vegan or looking to adopt a more plant based diet than I would highly recommend making this one of your staple recipes.

The cilantro pesto tastes amazing and cilantro is one of the best herbs for liver and gallbladder health and sprouted pumpkin seeds are rich in B vitamins, zinc and omega 3 fatty acids.  The cauliflower provides a great texture and cauliflower is full of glucosinolates which are powerful cancer fighting nutrients.

This recipe is high in healthy fats, antioxidant phytonutrients and fiber.  It is low in protein and carbohydrates which keeps insulin and cancer pathways such as mTOR inhibited.  This is why we use this recipe as a main course as we update our Cancer Cleanse program.
