Cauliflower is an awesome low-carb vegetable you can use to bulk up your meals. It is also really good for you, containing a ton of vitamins and minerals. I have been using it for years for stews, soups and even as a pizza base. Here it is as the main hero in veggie patties. Paired with a cheese and a few more simple ingredients, you will have a delicious meal in front of you in less than 15 minutes.
Cooking time: 15 min
200 g cauliflower
20 g white onion
60 g cheese (at least 26% of fat)
1 organic egg
Salt, to taste
35 g grass fed ghee
2 tbsp full-fat sour cream
Fresh dill, to serve
1. Chop the cauliflower and onion roughly, throw them to the food processor with the blade attachment and pulse until you have a fine crumb.
2. Substitute the blade attachment with the grater and use it to shred cheese.
3. Salt the mixture, add egg and mix everything until you have a homogenous dough.
4. Heat the ghee on a frying pan on medium heat. Form 4 patties out of the cauliflower mixture and fry them on both sides for about 3 minutes until golden brown.
5. Be very careful when flipping them, because they are fragile.
6. Serve with sour cream and lots of fresh dill.

Hey there, I’m Alex, from Alexfergus.com. In this blog post I’m going to talk about the most important biohacks I’ve learned over the last two years.
Because this is a guest blog post, let me first tell you a little bit about myself:
I’ve been optimizing my performance for years if not decades. My journey started a couple of years ago when I was aiming to improve my sports performance.
I competed in rowing and bodybuilding, for instance. At first, I was focusing on mainstream dietary and exercise strategies to enhance my results.
I ate a low-fat diet, for instance, with lots of grains, because such diets were recommended by governments all around the world. I also trained myself into the ground, sometimes exercising several hours a day.
One day I just crashed, had no energy left in the tank, and decided to take matters into my own hands. I mean: I was doing everything correct, so I should have gotten great results with the “eat less, exercise more” paradigm, right?
Over the years, I learned that most of my previous belief were flat out wrong. I began training (much) less, included many new foods into my diet such as bone broth, grass-fed beef, full-fat milk, butter, organ meats, and shellfish.
I also began focusing on domains that I previously didn’t have a second thought about such as sleep quality.
Today I wear blue-blocking glasses several hours before bedtime, tape my mouth to improve my sleep quality at night, sleep on the ultimate Samina mattress, and use red light therapy to push my sleep over the edge.
And yet, throughout the years, I’ve also learned that I never stop learning.
In this blog post, I’ll therefore cover the cutting-edge biohacks that I’ve become acquainted with in the last few years.
