Cauliflower “Fried” Rice

friedrice2This healthy cauliflower rice is a simple way to get some veggies at dinner or to eat as your main course. I love cauliflower because it is a powerful anti-cancer vegetable and it makes a great substitution for rice. Most stores now sell the cauliflower rice already crumbled for you too! I bought mine at trader joes but you can also buy a head of cauliflower and put into the food processor. My mom brought this over one night and I thought it was delicious! After that I took a couple different recipes and added my own twist.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bag cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 bag frozen peas
  • 3 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 4 eggs, scrambled
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped
  • Braggs Liquid Aminos to taste (healthy soy sauce alternative)

Add oil, garlic and carrots to skillet to cook on medium for 5 minutes. Add cauliflower and peas, stir to mix oil throughout. Cook until cauliflower softens up like rice, stirring throughout cooking time. Meanwhile, in a separate skillet scramble eggs and chop up into small pieces. Add egg, green onions and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos to taste.

Fill Your Kids With Goodness, Not Goodies.

juice plus eggOne of the greatest gifts you can give your kids is the gift of health. Spend time teaching them while they are young about what fuels their body the best.

I fuel my kids with real food such as fruits, vegetables, nuts/seeds, whole grains and protein.

They also take Juice Plus+ chewable vitamins. My kids are so excited to get this gift of health everyday! They love them and are constantly reminding me to take them.

I got hooked on Juice Plus is because it is made of 18 different non-gmo fruits and vegetables (carrots, parsley, beet, garlic, broccoli, tomato, spinach, cabbage, kale, apple, peach, cranberry, orange, papaya, pineapple, date, cherry and prune) and 2 grains (rice bran and oat bran). Although my kids get a lot of healthy foods, they do not get this variety and each color of the rainbow daily and each color offers different nutrients to our bodies.

It doesn’t contain high fructose corn syrup or any artificial preservatives colors or flavors like many other childrens vitamins. They taste delicious and are gluten free.

There is tons of clinical data at top research facilities supporting Juice Plus+. The most impressive one to me is markers of systemic inflammation improve (inflammation is the cause of some many diseases/ailments). See the research!

It is made from real fruits and vegetables picked vine-ripened at their peak time, juiced, dried and blended to make these tasty vitamins.

The cost is reasonable at $25/month, less than $1 a day. The company also has a great program to give free product for your child when an adult orders the product. This includes parents and grandparents!  Inquire if you are interested!

Some of the Impressive results parents reported about their children after taking Juice Plus:

  • Less Doctors Visits
  • Eating More Fruits & Vegetables
  • Less Prescription and Over the Counter Medication

Set your kids up with a strong foundation everyday!
