Cauliflower Fried Rice

Cauliflower Fried Rice RecipeMy husband and I can both vouch that this Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe is indeed actually very tasty! We were both a little skeptical of the concept of Cauliflower Fried Rice, but I was very intrigued to see what all the fuss was about. But alas, when I asked what he thought of the Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe his response (in between shoveling it into his mouth) was, “I love it!” I’m excited to make this Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe more often because it’s one of those versatile dishes where you can pretty much just use whatever ingredients sound good to you/or whatever you have on hand. I will recommend to not skip the green onions or coconut aminos (if you’re not Paleo/Whole30 just use soy sauce). Not familiar with Coconut Aminos? Neither was I! But I’ve found coconut aminos at Fred Meyer, Safeway, Whole Foods and other natural grocers. Just ask, I’m sure your local store has it too! Read on to learn how to make Cauliflower Fried Rice!

Banana nIcecream

banana nIcecreamIf you haven’t tried Banana nIcecream by now take this as a sign from the universe that the time has come for you to partake in this tasty little treat. Skeptical? I was too. I thought “Seriously, you don’t just blend a frozen banana and it magically tastes different than just eating a banana.” Well, it does. So give it a try and prove your skepticism wrong!

Mango Avocado Salad or Dip

MangoavosaladMake this now; thank me later. Seriously, this is to die for. I could eat it every day. I adapted this recipe from my coworker’s “Cowboy Caviar Chip Dip” and I’m forever thankful to her for bringing it into my life! The adaptations were: I used mango and/or strawberries instead of corn and/or black eyed peas, reduced the amount of oil and added lime juice. This is a slap-your-grandma damn good salad. Or if you dice the ingredients smaller it makes for a dip that’s the best thing that’s happened since studies claimed red wine in moderation is good for you. I’ve made this recipe five times in two weeks, I simply can’t get enough and I bet you won’t be able to either! Eat it plain, with mixed greens, or use it to make loaded yams, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, etc! Read more of this post
