Cauliflower Fried Rice (Egg Free Option)

Whether or not you choose to avoid grains in your diet, most Americans contain FAR too many grains and starches on a daily basis. While grains aren’t a “bad” food, consuming too many grains (especially processed forms like bread and pasta) can contribute to blood sugar issues and weight gain. Cauliflower is an affordable and easy substitute for many simple carbs, including white rice. If you don’t care for the flavor of cauliflower, recipes with flavorful sauces like this one are perfect for hiding the flavor while still delivering all the nutritional benefits!
