The “Basketball Wives” star on Wednesday shared an image of a typical lunch or dinner she eats from Papa’s in the Kitchen, which is run by Los Angeles husband-and-wife duo Chef Jason Cousins and “whole”-listic health and life coach Byata Cousins.
“Here is an example of what my lunch/dinner meals looks like for those of you asking.
This is wild caught sea bass with herb brown rice, carrots & cauliflower. This meal is gluten free & all organic. Thank you @papasinthekitchen for helping me reach my fitness/health goals 💪🏽” Lozada disclosed on the caption.
Several fans thought the meal looked scrumptious.
“Thank you for sharing…looks delish!”
“Yummy yum…very healthy.”
However, others were particularly curious about how the star managed to find a cauliflower variety that came in any color but white.
“Why is the cauliflower purple?”
“What’s with the colored cauliflower? Just for fun?”
“Purple cauliflower? Dyes are just as bad as bad diets.”
Then, others chimed in to mention that there are purple, orange and green varieties of cauliflower that occur naturally.
“They’re naturally purple folks 😉”
“@johnson.patrice Not when they’re naturally occurring. No, they’re not painted or dyed! Purple cauliflower gets its beautiful hue, which can vary from pale to jewel-toned, from the presence of the antioxidant anthocyanin, which is also found in red cabbage and red wine.”
And it’s true. Specialty produce brand Frieda’s explains as much on its colored cauliflower product page.
“Colored Cauliflower is available in green (also known as Broccoflower), purple and orange varieties,” the page reads. “Although it may look different than the popular white cauliflower, the taste is just the same: mild, sweet and nutty. The orange and purple cauliflower are higher in antioxidants than regular white cauliflower. Purple cauliflower’s true origin is not known, but the purple color is natural. It is the antioxidant anthocyanin that gives it the purple pigment.”
