I have been itching to get my hands on this frozen cauliflower from Trader Joe’s for months now. I know you can make your own but sometimes you just can’t beat the convenience of having it ready to go in the freezer!
The problem is that it is so popular and Trader Joe’s sells out regularly. I have gotten into the habit of grabbing two bags or more at a time to ensure I am stocked up!
I was skeptical of this recipe because let’s be real, it’s missing the carbs!! But honestly I was totally satisfied from this dish and I didn’t feel like I needed actual rice or quinoa at all! The cauliflower rice has a nice texture and by adding the chicken it was super filling. The leftovers heated up nicely for lunch too.
This past month I have been part of a killer wellness group online. It is the most engaging and motivating one I have been a part of yet!! I am so proud to see everyone feeling great, sharing the progress they are making with their workouts, loving their shakes, and coming up with so many tasty clean eating recipes!
The group is going to stay open for April but change over to focus on being strong for the summer so where are my fellow beach lovers at??? ☀🌊 👙
I am quite the beach lover myself and I am looking forward to continuing to make healthy choices and get in shape so I can FEEL my very best when that warm weather is finally here.
I am looking for women who want to feel confident this summer and rock cute summer dresses and swimsuits. Who want to surround themselves with other positive women who will motivate and inspire them over these next few weeks to feel their very best!
My plan is to make this my healthiest and happiest summer yet and if this sounds like something you want too than this group is for YOU! 🙌 ❤

Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice
- 3 teaspoons of coconut oil, divided
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
- Pink Himalayan salt, to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 small onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon minced ginger
- 1/2 cup carrots, diced
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- 2 eggs
- 1 12oz bag of frozen cauliflower rice (1.5 cups fresh if you make your own)
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- Season the chicken with Himalayan salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
- Heat 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a large skillet over a medium heat and add the seasoned chicken.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
- Transfer chicken to a plate. It is OK if the chicken is not cooked all the way through, it will continue to cook on the plate and will be added back to the pan later.
- Heat 1 teaspoon of coconut oil over a medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 2 minutes.
- Add the minced garlic, ginger, carrots, and peas. Saute for 3-4 minutes.
- Move the veggies to one side of the pan and crack the eggs on the other side. Gently scramble the eggs using a spatula. As the eggs start to scramble and are no longer liquid start to incorporate them in with the veggies on the other side of the pan.
- Remove the veggies and eggs from the pan (I added them to the plate with the cooked chicken)
- Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in the pan over a medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice and saute for 3 minutes.
- Add the cooked chicken and other veggies and eggs back to the pan.
- Add the soy sauce and sesame oil.
- Saute for an additional minute or two until the sauces are evenly distributed and everything is warmed through.
