HEALTHY KIMCHI FRIED RICE
HEALTHY KIMCHI FRIED RICE
Woah Squadies!! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a LEANMAZING weekend and enjoyed some family time, got some rest, had some (lean) fun, and maybe watched a little bit of the Academy Awards!! As many of you know, I have been in Florida for the past couple of weeks catching some Lean-Rays and celebrating Brodie’s 30th Birthday! We had great time (I think Hudson is now officially obsessed with Icecream) and even though I was out of my usual routine, I was able to keep it lean by using all my LEAN TRAVEL TIPS!!
Most times, when the weather is nice, the LAST place I want to be is INDOORS at the stove cooking up food! I much prefer to be outside, be active, or be with Brodie and Hudson (Ideally, being outside, and being active WITH Brodie and Hudson would be best hehe??) SO! When I was in Florida this past week, I whipped up..
? HEALTHY KIMCHI FRIED RICE!! ?
Kimichi sometimes gets bad reputation as an unhealthy option, but prepared and cooked the right way, it is just fermented vegetables which are FULL of nutrients! Also, Kimchi is really good for your gut health, and a rich source of vitamins which will have you feeling Lean all day long! In addition to the Kimchi, this leancipe has one of my other favorite lean staples: Cauliflower Rice. If you’re not on the Cauliflower Rice bandwagon yet… stop everything you’re doing, go to the grocery store, whizz by the frozen section and pick up your 1-way ticket to leanness (Cauliflower rice). In my opinion, it is the BEST LEAN replacement for rice or potatoes while still giving you that “satisfied” feeling after you eat! I used the cauliflower rice as the base for my dish, scrambled some eggs, and then topped it with my Kimchi!! Super easy, Super Tasty, AND SUPER LEAN!! To finish things off, I used a liberal portion of Siracha to add a little heat to the dish and rev up my metabolism while a couple teaspoons of soy sauce added some extra flavour!
Oh, and finally, the best part about this dish is that the ENTIRE recipe only took me 20 minutes to make!
SO LEAN and SO QUICK. Find a better duo…
