Happy WIAW!! Today I have my eats from Whole30 Day 7 and my first attempt at cauliflower rice!
A morning walk with some friendly lake animals. Baby ducks are too cute.
The walk ended with a side of rain. But I was already out, so I just went with it.
Eggs, salsa, spinach, and avocado. This is a dreamy combination.
I had a snack-y lunch because it was hot and I wasn’t really in the mood for anything more exciting than that. And that’s ok.
Fish, followed by berries with pistachios and coconut butter.
Then I attempted my big adventure of the day: making cauliflower rice.
I’ve been interested in cauliflower rice for a while, but it always seemed so intimidating. I mean..how does it even work? Do I have to hand grate this stuff? Shred it with my hands? I am not domestic enough for this…
But it turns out that making cauliflower rice was incredibly easy, and I didn’t have to get any more domestic to make it work!
How to Make Cauliflower Rice
Cut your cauliflower up into small pieces, and remove the stalk/stem. I cut mine up into about the size pieces I would normally eat, maybe a little smaller. This is not an exact science, so don’t over think it.
Blend it up! Food processors are generally recommended for this, but I don’t have one, so I changed it up. Vitamix to the rescue, again. I just made sure to do the cauliflower in smallish batches so it wouldn’t overwhelm the 2 blades of the blender.
You did it!! To cook this you can either toast it in the oven, or cook it in a pan.
I’ve been cooking mine up with some ghee and it is delicious. The ‘rice’ doesn’t really have any flavor, so your options are endless! Stir fry, mexican rice, breakfast rice, anything you can dream up!
I stopped by the gym in the afternoon and did a HIIT workout. Quick & dirty, it’s the way to go!
Typical Furman. Looking so beautiful.
I threw together a quick dinner of fish, spaghetti squash and guacamole. It was a random combination, but still scrumptious. I love having prepped veggies around, it makes busy weekdays much easier.
Questions of the day:
What do you prep to make your week easier?
Have you tried cauliflower rice or any other ‘alternative’ versions of typical foods?
