Paleo Turkey Cauliflower Fried Rice

Just in case you’re like me, moving away from the sweet flavors and the heavy carbs, turkey cauliflower fried rice is for you.

Before I get to that I want to thank you. Over 23,000 of you visited my recipe for Cheesecloth Wrapped Roast Turkey, and 3600 of you watched the video. That’s just amazing and I hope you enjoyed it.

The other night we made a typical Italian dish, rice with peas, except I used cauliflower and it was just as comforting.

Today, of course, I have lots of turkey left over and I still had some of that cauliflower rice.

Thus, paleo turkey cauliflower fried rice was born. I’m giving you the recipe just as if you would have to start from scratch. I don’t do paleo 100% of the time, but it’s where I turn in between parties, dinners, etc, and I have way to many things coming up this month. I’m not as strict as some as I do eat dairy, but I try hard to stick to grain free eating several days a week.

Cauliflower is great around the holiday times because it fills you up, yet is healthy, and a good food to help you stay fit throughout the holidays. A few months back, I went on a roll with cauliflower, making paleo, vegan mashed cauliflower, and cauliflower parmesan.Cauliflower today. Cookies tomorrow. You know how that goes.

This was a fun lunch, and just enough to give me fuel for navigating the mall. Yes I do get out there; it’s tradition to start our Christmas season, even though I’m one of those who does most of my shopping last minute.

How about you?  Are you pushing and shoving the crowds shopping or shopping on-line?

    Yep! It’s penance time — I ate well yesterday and Christmas is just around the corner plus all the baking that it involves. But you know I had to chuckle at the last minute turkey watchers. I wonder what time they were all going to eat?? We had our turkey done on Wednesday and sliced and ready to eat once it was warmed. OMG it was delicious. I love the idea of the cauliflower — good dish for me so I can get back to a normal diet.That’s wonderful how many people you had visit your site :-)!! Have a great weekend.
