Comfort food and healthy food don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Rather than ordering carb-heavy, sodium-laden fried rice take out, whip up your own in less than 20 minutes! Fast, easy, delicious, and nutritious – your skinny jeans will thank you.

Ingredients (Serves 4):

  • 3 cups of grated raw cauliflower (*use a cheese grater or food processor)
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • ½ cup carrots, thinly sliced
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 eggs (or 4 egg whites) scrambled
  • 3 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce

*Note: Using a cheese grater to grate an entire cauliflower head can be considered a light arm workout

 

Directions:

  1. In a large pan, sauté garlic and onions in olive oil on a medium/high heat, until onions become soft and transparent. (about 2-3 minutes)
  2. Next add in peas and carrots. Cook until carrots begin to soften and peas are heated through. (about 3-4 minutes)12145241_1195429087150295_1195958666_n
