What I Ate Wednesday – Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice

Happy Wednesday foodies! Cauliflower fried rice is one of my absolute favorite ways to use cauliflower rice. This week I decided to take the classic Chinese Chicken Fried Rice and add my own twist. Try my lightened up version of Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice! Looks and tastes exactly like fried rice! But so much healthier for you!

I promise we’ll get to the recipe, but first, let’s take a look at some of my favorite eats from last week!

Breakfast

BREAKFAST WIAW

Another sweet and savory breakfast! I used Kodiak Cake Crunchy Peanut Butter Flapjack mix and added some chopped bacon to the batter. For the sweet component, I added a dollop of the Brownie Batter Delighted By Dessert Hummus on top!

 

Lunch

SIETE TORTILLA LUNCH #2

I have been hunting high and low and finally found these gems at Whole Food! Siete Cassava & Coconut Tortillas. The tortillas are grain free, paleo, non-gmo, gluten free, dairy free and soy free. I filled mine with a helping of Healthy General Tso’s Chicken.

 

Afternoon Snack

FITJOY MINT CHOCOLATE CRISP

This bar tasted like a cross between a peppermint patty and a thin mint cookies. Very chewy with a few crispies in there to add a small crunch factor. The mint is a bit strong in comparison to the chocolate flavoring. Overall, I would still choose the Oh Yeah One Mint Chocolate Chip over the FitJoy.

Now onto the recipe for today!

Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice. Yes, you read that correctly. Fried rice that is made using cauliflower!

Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice is an easy, all in one pan, flavorful dish to whip up for dinner. This healthy fried rice has become one of my go-to weeknight dinners. If you’re weary of replacing rice with cauliflower, let me assure you; this dish does not taste like cauliflower. Enjoy!

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE your cauliflower fried rice recipe! Cauliflower rice is so awesome – I don’t eat “real” rice, so obviously I prefer the veggie form 🙂 Love your waffle breakfast, taco lunch (I’ve heard about the Siete brand, but haven’t seen it locally); and my FAVORITE is your dessert creation – sundae perfection. Aaaaand I’m still afraid to try my FitJoy bar 😉 For Chinese takeout recipes = how about a fun, healthy egg roll recipe makeover? If anyone can do it, you can! Happy Wednesday, dear Wendy xo

    • Happy Wednesday Liz! Thank you for the kind words! This was such a fun recipe to make too! I am obsessed with cauliflower rice right now.:) I love the suggestion of a “healthier egg roll” – I’ll get working on that one! Have a great rest of the week- xo
