I am pretty much in LOVE! If you love rice and want to eat it without the carbs, try Cauliflower rice!
Head of cauliflower.
Seasonings. (I used butter, salt and pepper)
Microwave safe dish with a lid
What you do:
Cut the cauliflower from the head and cut it into smaller pieces. Wash and dry the pieces and then put them into the blender/food processor and mix it till it is the size of rice. Add Cauliflower into microwave safe dish with the lid (nothing else, don’t add water) and microwave for 5 minutes. When it is done add what ever seasoning you would like!
Example of the dish I used:
YUM! Just had this for lunch! These low carb wraps are so good! They have salsa, veggie, cilantro and multigrain and are only 50 calories.
I sauteed mushrooms with spinach (just lite olive oil, salt and pepper).
I spread a teaspoon of taziki (from sprouts), salsa, sliced tomatoes, sprouts, turkey and added the sauteed veggies. SOOOO good!
I started seeing a trainer once a week to switch up my everyday routine. He is making me (:)) eat six meals a day to speed up my metabolism and it is hard! Basically I can have the following:
2 carbs/cheats a day
So here is an example of a typical day for me:
Wake up at 6 am and have a hand full of almonds – thats one of my fats
at 9am I have 2 eggs (one egg white and one yolked) with a 1/2 piece of ezeikel english muffin – that is 2 protein and 1 carb
then at 12pm I have something like the above pic (turkey, low fat string cheese, 1/2 an avocado, cucumbers – 2 proteins and 1 fat
at 3pm I have 3 hard boiled egg whites – protein
at 6pm I have chicken and salad – protein and veggies
and if I am hungry any other time of the day I have a 1/2 an apple with a scoop of peanut butter. The sixth time is hard for me to fit in because I won’t eat past 7pm. But this is my goal. Don’t quote me on what everything is categorized as, I am pretty sure I did it right!
