Skinny Cauliflower Fried Rice

3 years ago

Looking for a great side dish that is healthy and flavorful? We have been hearing a lot about the Paleo diet which is basically anything in it’s whole form and does not incorporate grains, so basically no carbs. Here is a little information on it, if you are interested in learning more. We are not on any strict diet but try to eat a limited carb intake in the evening, since you are the most sedentary. Our Skinny Cauliflower rice is the best option for a delicious side dish. Pair it with your favorite protein: chicken, steak, tofu or fish and enjoy a complete meal without any guilt. You can always add some hot sauce (our fave is Sriracha) to add a little kick. Try to limit the amount to reduce sodium intake. Enjoy~ T2B
