It was super time and I had just finished working out to my new favorite fit jam, Shift Shop – the one I chose out of over 600 different workout programs – and I was starving!
Always with the workout program, you get all sorts of recipes to use throughout the workout calendar to help you get your best results. And this eating plan was calling for us to cut back on those carbs! Luckily, it had this recipe that stood out to us – as we love some Thai food and fried rice(GF).
We already use cauliflower as a substitute for rice at home so we were uber down to try it.
I was appearing on an episode of Casual earlier in the week, and waited until my hubs got back in town to watch it with him. So for our downtime that night we got creative with the Cauliflower “Fried Rice” recipe and added ground turkey – as we were getting tired of eating chicken almost everyday from all the other recipes.
First bite? We both were like…”Mmmmmh, this good!” to “Oh my god, this is good!” And we were stoked we had leftovers!
So needless to say it was a winner so I wanted to share the recipe with you. You can do as we did and add ground turkey. Or if you are vegetarian or Vegan you can skip the meat all together or add in your fave substitute.

2 lb. raw lean ground chicken breast
5 Tbsp. organic coconut aminos, divided use
