Cauliflower Fried Rice!!

CAULIFLOWER “FRIED RICE”

I LOVE fried rice, and often make my own fried rice at home with brown rice which is delicious. But sometimes when I want to cut down on my carbs, I opt for cauliflower rice.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium head (about 24 oz) cauliflower, rinsed
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • pinch of salt
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 small onion, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 scallions, diced, whites and greens separated
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce, or more to taste (Tamari for Gluten Free)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Remove the core and let the cauliflower dry completely.
  2. Coarsely chop into florets, then place half of the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice or couscous – don’t over process or it will get mushy. Set aside and repeat with the remaining cauliflower.
  3. Combine egg and egg whites in a small bowl and beat with a fork. Season with salt.
  4. Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium heat and spray with oil.
  5. Add the eggs and cook, turning a few times until set; set aside.
  6. Add the sesame oil and saute onions, scallion whites, peas and carrots and garlic about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft.Raise the heat to medium-high.
  7. Add the cauliflower “rice” to the saute pan along with soy sauce. Mix, cover and cook approximately 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.
  8.  Add the egg then remove from heat and mix in scallion greens.

Losing Our Babies.

Have you seen the movie groundhogs day? That is how I feel about my grief. Every night I go to bed feeling a little bit better. Each morning I wake up feeling exactly the same way I felt on the days I lost my babies. Every morning I wake up afraid to roll out of bed to face the pain. Every morning I wake up scared, sad, and lonely. My Family is here with me, but I feel so alone in my emotions. There are days when the edge of the pain seems to have come off just a bit by the end of the day, and then there are days when I cannot run away from it all.

It can all seem to be just to much to bare. To much to feel. I wish I had more of a positive up lifting post for the day, but I really just want to be okay with feeling lousy. Yesterday I slept from 10 AM to 3:30 PM. It was as if my body shut down from it all. The body knows when things just get to be to much. My body knew to help me rest.

So the moral of my story this morning… its okay to just exist in pain and not run away from it. Its okay to just exist within your thoughts and be with them. Running away from all of it only numbs pain in the present moment, but no matter what that pain will be waiting for you to accept it and you will have to eventually feel it at some point.

Im no expert on grief. I am just sharing my experience with all of you in hopes that someone out there who is going through grief can grab on to any hope from my experiences.054_MironFamilySession

The Best Paleo Noodles Ever!!

16251746_10211804413567256_871245610642386482_o

 

When I decided to switch my diet and follow a Paleo plan I remember feeling a sadness that I was going to not be able to eat noodles!!! I love noodles. I mean I am half asian, noodles are kiiiinda in my blood! I got to searching on the internet for some paleo noodle options, and this is what I found! Sweet potato starch noodles! I was skeptical but I had to give them a shot! With the noodles, I made a whole chicken in my instant pot, I added the broth created from the chicken to a bowl, along with lots of lemon juice. I boiled the noodles and added them to my broth… it was outstanding!!I could not get enough of them. Being that I am pregnant carbs are an important macro to be consuming! Normally I would run to Shirataki noodles, but I wanted to eat something with carbs! This has 24 carbs in one serving

Debt Free Thanks to Beachbody !

In 2008 I walked across the graduation stage and into a mountain of student debt. With my spending habits, and lack of a well paying job, there was no way I could cover the bills that were piling up at my apartment. I was also receiving collection letter after collection letter for the thousands I had put on credit and never paid. I thought everyone had to get into debt to make any sort of money! So I spent like crazy… sadly most of it went to the bar!

I was dodging phone calls left and right from debt collectors. At that point in my life I was sure I would never be debt free. I never thought I would be able to grow the life that I have always wanted while having to pay the mountains of debt I was in.

When Eric and I decided to get married I searched and searched for a way to tell him that he was about to marry into piles of debt. Luckily he loved me enough to say “we will work on this together.”

Cut to 2017, 4.5 years in as a Beachbody Coach and as of January 1st I am 100% Debt Free (with the exception of our house).

On January 1st I paid my very last installment to my student debt!!!

I AM FREEEEEEEE from the collections calls, the endless collection letters! This is debt my family will never have to see again! The feeling is absolutely surreal. When we made the final payment I wiped tears from my eyes. That debt haunted me for 8 years! It brought me so much turmoil and panic.

In the process I was able to improve my credit to a point where we were able to buy a new home (last year) with an amazing interest rate!

It is an incredible feeling to be debt free, and it is even more incredible to teach my daughter about the importance of staying away from spending more than she can afford. To be able to look at my daughter when she is older and tell her “I paid that all off” is a dream come true!

Because we work so hard!
