Eat Right

How does eating right impact your life? It can raise your  energy level and mood, keep you at a healthy weight and give you a better outlook on life. Eating right means getting the right nutrients in your body to keep the engine running smoothly. Find the right healthy choices that are enjoyable to you. It doesn’t mean eating perfectly either. Sometimes it’s okay to splurge as long as you go back to your habit of healthy eating. Eating right includes supporting a clean diet with high-quality supplements to ensure that you get all the nutrients that your body needs.


Cauliflower Rice

Prep Time: 5 min
Total Time: 5 min

1-ingredient: cauliflower, perfect for practically any dish that calls for brown or white rice!
Author: Minimalist Baker
Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: Vegan, Gluten Free
Serves: 4 Cups

Instructions

  • Wash and thoroughly dry cauliflower, then remove all greens and cut into 4 even sections (see photo).
  • With a box grater, use the medium-sized holes, or a food processor with the grater attachment, to grate the cauliflower into the size of rice (See photo), leaving any large, tough stems behind.
  • Transfer to a clean towel or paper towel and press to remove any excess moisture, which can make your dish soggy.
  • Once you have your cauliflower rice, it’s easy to cook! Simply sauté in a large skillet over medium heat in 1 Tbsp oil. Cover with a lid so the cauliflower steams and becomes more tender. Cook for a total of 5-8 minutes, then season as desired (such as with soy sauce or salt and pepper).
  • Use cauliflower rice in recipes that call for rice, such as stir friesfesenjan, or fried rice!

Notes
*This recipe is not my original concept! It’s just my preferred technique.
