development – cheesy cauliflower soup

When I was first put on osteoporosis supplements, Dr. Rosenberg also had me meet with his dietitian.  By the end of the session, I was giving her some suggestions that she was going to try…:)  Anyways, they recommended me eating more food high in calcium.  We already ate quite a bit of spinach, but I’ve never found broccoli and cauliflower on my favorite list.  Within a week of eating tons of cabbage and broccoli, we realized why.  I was getting some major tummy aches at night.  We decided to get calcium other ways.  Recently, we’ve been eating cauliflower with other vegetables in creamy soups and I haven’t had any problems.  In fact, I loved it!  Perhaps another NAET benefit…thanks ZD!
