Coconut Cauliflower Rice Stir Fry



Girl Gone Paleo? Hell nooooooooo! 

If you read this blog regularly, you know I've got all kinds of healthy recipes in my repertoire. As white rice does not agree with my belly, it's one of the top ingredients that I avoid. I have turned to cauliflower 'rice' as my substitute.  If you don't know, white rice is processed, refined and stripped of the outermost and innermost layers of grain, removing most of the fiber, nutrients, and proteins. White rice digests rapidly in your body, creating increased insulin levels, increased fat storage, and will add to your waistline over time.  Furthermore, white rice offers a low level of satiety. 
So you'll eat it, but won't feel very full, and then eat some more with the end result of a guaranteed fat Buddha belly.
It has to be one of the worst feelings EVER for a foodie. So turning to cauliflower "rice" and has been a total game changer for me. Cauliflower 'rice' is cauliflower that has been processed (in a food processor) or grated until it looks like traditional white rice. #Winning!!!  It's a white food you can feel good about eating that can help your waistline shrink for bikini season... which is just around the corner.


Take my advice and try this healthy, low carb, gluten free substitute that will keep your belly feeling warm and full (in a good way!), until that time comes to sport shorts and flips-flops.
