Life just got better with lightened fried cauliflower rice with chicken. In fact, I’m planning it again for next week!
Life is a constant struggle. It can be with marriages, family members, kids, animals, schools, government systems, money problems, blog issues and my personal favorite WEIGHT ISSUES. I would be one heck of a rich lady if I put a dollar in a jar for every time I said I was going to work out or start a diet. In fact, I started a gym that is less than 2 miles from my house and they have yet to see me since I signed up. You could say, in fact, that I am giving them one hefty monthly donation. One day soon, I HOPE and PRAY to make it to the gym in my new workout attire. Yes, I bought new clothes in thinking that I would gain some aspiration for attending workout classes.
This past week I finally made the decision to change up some eating habits at home. If I wasn’t going to the gym, at least I could start somewhere in the right direction. Don’t get me wrong because I will always and forever hold a love for bread, pasta, Mexican food and sweets near and dear to my heart. I’m talking about minor changes because I want to be happy and satisfied about meeting small goals that I have set for myself. One to two healthy meals a week for our family and then reevaluate. That is downright doable in my mind.
Now I am a huge fan of Chinese food, but is it healthy? Heck no! After listening to my sister-in-law talk about cauliflower rice, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and make this lightened fried cauliflower rice with chicken recipe. Talk about a big bowl of savory Chinese food that is healthier than the original version. SOLD.
I’ve partnered up with Pompeian oils to bring you some new flavors. The new Pompeian Varietals Collection currently features three different varieties ranging in flavor from mild to full-bodied, allowing at-home chefs to find the perfect, complimentary oil and flavor profile for all of their dishes, from delicate seafood to juicy red meats.
The oil I used with this dish is the picholine varietal. It pairs nicely with meats, soup, sauces and marinades. Not to mention it’s perfect for a sauté or roast. The balance of this cauliflower dish was very nice with the oils, vegetables and chicken.
These new products also allow us, the consumers, to track each individual bottle with their new Tree to Bottle site.
