Nowadays, when I cook fried rice, I add grated cauliflower so that (1) I eat less rice and (2) I still get to taste some real rice when I eat Cauliflower Fried Rice.
When I first came across Cauliflower Fried Rice and subsequently tried it, I liked it but I have since freed myself from a strict low carb diet after achieving my target. So now, I want some rice but not too much.
You know I eat a lot and there is no way that I could be satisfied with a small bowl of fried rice or half a plate of fried rice. When I eat, I eat!
So when I want to indulge in some good old fried rice at home, I mix half and half of rice and grated cauliflower. Not only do I reduce the amount of my carb intake, I get a good dose of veggies as well.
Since I can get fresh cauliflower from Jaya Grocer, I can make my low carb fried rice more often. Gone were the days when I would be deeply disappointed to find cauliflower with brown spots when I shop at my regular supermarket.
For anyone interested in Cauliflower Fried Rice but still want some rice, just use your favorite fried rice recipe and just substitute half the amount of rice with grated cauliflower.
By the way, cutting down on carbs and the sweet stuff is very effective for fat loss. You don't have to sacrifice your carbs, just eat less and allow yourself a cheat day once a week. It worked for me. So if you find yourself in Damansara Uptown and see a fat auntie, that's not me. Not anymore. Wahahaha!!!
