A big portion of the weight I gained in my twenties can be attributed to fried rice. All Chinese food was a mystery to me until college. Once I found Orange Chicken and Fried Rice from Panda Express, there was no looking back. At least until it was time to take off the weight for good. Low carb, high fat lifestyles and fried rice just do not mix.
Perhaps I have been out of the carb game for too long, but this Coconut Cauliflower Fried Rice tastes so close to the real thing! Except this recipe helps keep my insulin levels low and my carb cravings at bay. I replaced some traditional fried rice ingredients with coconut counterparts to make this recipe a little sweeter.
