Gut Friendly Cauliflower Fried Rice
Who doesn't love a good fried rice? In this variation we've not only cleaned out the bad but the added good gives key nutrition and balance that our bodies don't often receive. All while keeping the flavors our taste buds have grown to love.
It's a gluten free meal that aids stomach issues associated with Crohn's, IBS and Celiac's Disease. You'll be fighting inflammation, promoting digestion and pleasing your craving. This has been one of my staple meals during the process of healing.
With this, as well as every recipe and change, stick to organic, fresh, whole food ingredients. Unless otherwise noted, all of my recipe ingredients are at least organic. We're holding our standards to a higher quality, with ingredients tailored around what matters most, our health.

What We Avoided:
By changing up the sauce, we avoided a common GMO, soy. Also, a highly processed item that, even when the healthiest version, is still debated on nutrition. We've cut the typical high levels of sodium from this dish and exchanged the gut grinding rice.
