Sitting down to write this post I am literally laughing at myself. I decided to look up the meaning of “Creature of Habit” on Urban Dictionary… And I am wondering, does this make me a monster of habit?
Someone who develops (generally inadvertently) a set pattern of doing the same things during a certain time period of the day, week, etc.
The opposite of someone who is spontaneous or has the ability to exhibit spontaneity.
Maybe some of you out there can relate. I walked you through my regular morning routine… clearly…HABIT… analyzing the rest of my day… also HABIT… I really am kind of boring. But not boring in a bad way, just boring in the way that I know what I like and I stick to it. This is no different for what I put in my mouth. I know you are shocked! I can seriously eat my favorite things OVER AND OVER! Sometimes I go months and months without changing the foods that I eat at home. UNTIL… dun… dun… dun…the one day that I am completely over it. When that day comes the whole process starts all over.
My habit starts when I grocery shop. I don’t need a list, I can grab and go without thinking twice or wondering if I forgot something. Weekly food prep is down to a science and I can finish it in an under two hours for my entire week. SAY WHAT? (No, food prep doesn’t have to take up your whole life.) The least amount of cooking I can do during the week, the better! Simplify to be successful, this is definitely my meal prep mantra (and maybe a slight bit of laziness). But really… ain’t nobody got time for a nightly Iron Chef episode!
I want to share with you guys an easy dinner that I am currently addicted to. Even if you are not making it beforehand in meal prep, it still only takes about 10 minutes, not to mention it is delicious! This is my kind of dinner! This cauliflower fried rice has six ingredients, unless you feel like getting fancy, but if that is not a thing you and it is definitely not a thing for me currently then here we go…
Amy’s Amazing Cauliflower Fried Rice Deliciousness
- 1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
- 1/2-1 tsp. Ginger (to your taste)
- 1 tsp. Red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1-2 Tbsp. Coconut Aminos
- 1 bag Riced Cauliflower Medley
- 1 whole egg scrambled
- Optional ingredients: sesame seeds, green onion, cashews and additional protein source!
Heat saute pan on medium high, spray with non stick cooking spray, (I use coconut oil spray). Allow pan to heat add garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes for about 1 minute, until garlic becomes aromatic. Add Cauliflower medley saute for 4-5 minutes until cauliflower is slightly browned. Scramble egg and set aside. Once cauliflower is ready add coconut aminos and cook for an additional minute. Add egg and stir until cooked through! Top with green onion, sesame seeds, sriracha and your favorite protein source (I love to add chicken or shrimp!) for a completely balanced, macronutrient friendly meal! Viola!
