Recipe: Healthy Shrimp Fried Rice

Here’s a great post-workout meal to up your nutrition that is super easy to make! This balanced meal takes items that are already a part of your “clean eating” plan and helps you mix it up a bit. Best of all it takes only a few minutes to make! You might already have these items cooked in your fridge if you are food-prepping!

Ingredients:

  • 1 T Toasted Sesame Oil
  • one egg or 2-3 egg whites
  • 2 T Tamari or Gluten Free BRAGGS Aminos (or more to taste)
  • Drizzle of Agave nectar
  • 1/2 Cup Cauliflower Rice ( See Below for how to make Cauliflower Rice)
  • 1 Cup steamed broccoli
  • 1/4 Green Onion
  • 1/4 Chopped Red Bell Peppers
  • 5 oz cooked shrimp

Heat Oil in Sautee pan until hot. crack egg in pan and stir fry egg until cooked about 1/2 way. Toss in rice, broccoli and shrimp then Tamari or BRAGGS and stir to combine. once heated through, drizzle with Agave and serve!

Cauliflower Rice: There are two techniques for making cauliflower rice. You can either use a box grater with the medium-size holes traditionally used for cheese, or a food processor with an “S” shaped blade to blitz it into small pieces. With both techniques you’re aiming for little pieces the size of rice. One additional step I like is to press any excess moisture from the rice by transferring the cauliflower rice to a large paper towel or absorbent dish towel and squeeze/press to remove any remaining water. This ensures no excess moisture remains, which can make your dish soggy.

Note: To make this a great ANYTIME meal simply replace the rice with some finely chopped cauliflower and now you have a great low-carb alternative as well!

I am helping women change their story they play in their head everyday. You should never resign yourself if you are not living your true self and purpose. As a female entrepreneur and fitness professional, My own story has many ups and downs which started more than 33 years ago as a 12 year old bullied for her big butt. My 12 year old self started her own personal plan, started the fire and the uphill climb to overcome her imperfect self. The plot and the story thickened when my body gave out on me in my 20's diagnosed with fibromyalgia and hypothyroidism As a worn down just barely married woman, I needed to reclaim my youth through weight lifting and eating for me. It took those health issues to help me find my way back to rewrite my story. I use this journey and personal experiences of many ups and downs in health, to work right beside my clients to help them achieve their best self. Today I work right beside the women I meet to teach them that they do count and they do have a purpose.
