Pork Fried “Rice”

Well, not really… more like Pork Fried Cauliflower, but you would probably never know the difference.

Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 (3 oz) Pork cutlets
  • 1/2 head of Cauliflower
  • 1 cup Red Cabbage
  • 1 cup Carrots (julienned)
  • 1/2 cup Onion
  • 1/2 Red Pepper
  • 2 large stalks of Celery
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 1/2Tbsp Coconut Liquid Amino’s (or Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s)
  • Grapeseed Oil

Directions:

Place cauliflower in a pot to steam.  (Should steam for about 5-7 minutes).  In a large saucepan or wok add the grapeseed oil.  Cube your Pork cutlets and place in the pan to saute.

While meat is cooking, cut up your veggies and put aside.  When cauliflower is done, add to your food processor & process until the cauliflower resembles rice.

Add cut veggies to wok and mix in with meat.  Add both your Coconut liquid amino’s and Fish sauce & saute for about 3 minutes, then add the cauliflower rice.

In a seperate bowl have eggs lightly scrambled and ready to add.  Move mixture around to the sides of the pan to make room for the eggs & pour into center.  Let them cook a bit (couple of minutes, until the resemble scrambled eggs) before you mix them in with the rest of your veggies.  Mix your fried rice and serve!

Whey Crepes

So, I’m still pretty much Primal as far as going sans grains but I’m in the process of shifting my diet toward less fats these days.  While I do think fats (at least good clean fats) are a very important part of our diet, for me, I do better at around 30 – 40% in my diet.  So, here is a little post workout snack I made up today after doing some sprints outside before the torrential downpour ensued.

Crepes with cottage cheese & berries

With a little help from Emily Zaler; here is my creation:

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop unsweetened whey isolate protein
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp flax seed
  • 2 – 4 tbsp cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup mixed berries

Directions:

In a bowl mix egg whites, protein powder, vanilla & flax seeds.  Pour mixture into warm pan and let fill the bottom.  Cook like an omellete and fill with your cottage cheese & berries.  Flip one side over the top, continue cooking until crepes are browned and serve!  Sooooo good!

Whole eggs are optional as well to add a little extra goodness to your treat.  Also you can use a flavored Whey protein or add a dash of stevia to taste.

Enjoy & for all of you partaking in the 60 Day Challenge at Skogg Gym, this recipe is a little better fit.
