Scott and I just returned from a glorious, seven night cruise to the Caribbean. It was everything we wanted it to be. Romantic. Fun. Relaxing. The weather was perfect. The scenery was beautiful. And, the food was so delicious. I rarely eat 100% healthy on vacation. I just feel that it goes against what a vacation should be. Indulgence!
So, now that I’m back home (and coming off of a social media reprieve, as well ; ), I plan to eat more paleo dishes. I wanted to share this delicious fried rice dish I made, last night. It was a big hit for several reasons. One – It is PALEO friendly if you use Coconut Aminos Soy Substitute and Cauliflower rice. (Which Scott and I tried for the first time and agreed that it works splendidly with this dish!) Two – It is simple to make. And, Three – You can mix it up a bit to suit your preference or whatever you have on hand.
I hadn’t gone food shopping, after returning late Sunday night from our trip. But,I did have chicken, shrimp, and peas in the freezer and a few produce items that were still fresh. I also had this cauliflower rice that I’ve been wanting to try. It’s a lot tastier than I anticipated!
I definitely suggest trying this if you want to substitute real rice, although the texture it more like a couscous (and without flavoring, it tastes like…cauliflower). What I like most is that it definitely satisfies the carby-texture needed in a dish like this. Trust me. Just try it.
Here’s the recipe to help convince you. : )
