Today, my friend and fellow health and wellness extraordinaire, Abbey Gibb – holistic nutritionist and founder of the lifestyle network, AbbeyGibb.tv – is going to teach us how to make cauliflower veggie spring rolls! Give her a big warm welcome!
Eat The Rainbow!
I love making cauliflower veggie spring rolls because they are colorful, have variety and give me something delicious and healthy to eat besides kale!
One of my favorite tips for making healthy recipes is to EAT THE RAINBOW. When you include all the colors available amongst veggies and fruits, then you can be sure to get all your micronutrients in without having to spend excess time calculating.
In the recipe below you will find all sorts of wonderful colors and textures! Feel free to mix them up with similar items in your fridge. Comment below and let us know what works for you!
Dip the rice paper in the warm water then set on a plate. Let them sit for a few minutes until they “loosen up.”
Take a handful of the cauliflower rice and spread over the rice paper like you would a burrito.
Add a little cabbage and spinach leaves on top of the cauliflower rice.
Set some kiwi and strawberries on top.
Roll up the rice paper.
Mix together peanut butter powder and liquid aminos until it is desired consistency. Add stevia to sweeten if desired.
Dip your veggie roll in the sauce.
Enjoy within the day!

Benefits Of Ingredients
Rice paper makes an excellent substitute for otherwise calorie-heavy bread options. It is low in both calories and unhealthy fats and may help support healthy weight management. Always opt for the un-fried options.
Strawberries are considered to be one of the healthiest fruits. They pack quite the nutritional punch, with a plethora of antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals. They are particularly high in vitamin C, just 1 serving of strawberries contains half your daily requirement. Vitamin C is vital for every cell in your body and to keep your immune system functioning at optimum levels.
Kiwi contains five times the amount of vitamin C an orange does in just one serving (about 273% of your daily requirement!). It also contains vitamin K, which is beneficial to the bloodstream. In total, Kiwi contains at least 20 vital nutrients that support overall health and wellbeing.
Red Bell Pepper
Red bell peppers are full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories called phytochemicals and carotenoids. This crunchy vegetable is low calorie and contains nutrients that have been shown to reduce bad cholesterol levels, improve symptoms of diabetes and ease pain from inflammation.
Cabbage contains vitamin B6, which is important for energy and also appetite control. It also contains numerous vitamins, minerals and fiber that help to keep your belly flat, your digestive system clean and your organs happy. Some people say eating cabbage is as good as taking a multivitamin. Plus, cabbage comes in many colors and varieties so you never have to feel bored!
Spinach is a wonderful leafy green that has a mild flavor so you can throw a handful into almost anything without compromising taste. Spinach is low in fat and contains many vitamins and minerals and even some protein. The folate in spinach is beneficial for your cardiovascular system and some studies have even linked spinach consumption to good brain function and mental clarity.
This simple veggie is surprisingly versatile and is becoming one of the most popular substitutes for heavy bread products. It is low calorie and a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous family of vegetables. Cauliflower is high in vitamin C, vitamin K and disease-fighting antioxidants. Some studies suggest that cauliflower consumption may boost heart and brain health.
Powdered Peanut Butter
Powdered peanut butter contains far less calories than normal peanut butter and is much less messy! It still tastes delicious and makes a great addition to smoothies, shakes, sauces and more.
Liquid aminos are a less sodium-dense substitute for conventional soy sauce. They contain amino acids from soy beans or coconuts, depending on which variety you choose. They contain 16 of the 20 amino acids, which are beneficial for cell support and repair, good digestion and muscle support.

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
