Cauliflower rice

Im on a clean eating challenge for 30 days …. eating as much wholefoods as I can at mealtimes.
I decided to try out the cauliflower rice idea!
It’s pretty easy actually.
Heres how I did it

1. Chop in the food processor cauliflower florets… maybe 10 for one person


2. Spread it out on a baking tray
3. Add small sprinkle of sea salt if you wish
3. Put in the oven for 15 mins at 180 degrees celcius or until the top has just strated to brown slightly
4. Plate up covering with yr favourite curry!


VERDICT: Very tasty!! Much more flavoursome than rice…. ill be using it again!

How to tackle all tastes in the family without going bonkers!!

Sometimes theres no way around it…I find myself flying by the seat of my pants amid chaotic routines of kids extra curricular activities,  my own work etc. ….. and mealtimes can be a challenge! !

So how do I dish up something  nutritious,  tasty, also addressing everyones quirks and tastes on a busy friday evening…..whilst trying to focus on my own needs, day 4 of my personal clean eating challenge??

….My taste spuds were asking for spice so i had my sights set of a red curry. With no prep time and my usual hour window to get everyone fed heres how I managed!

Raw veg

Some of mine will only eat veg raw!!…. and its hardly something to complain about from a nutritional standpoint, so as I was preparing chopped veg I put aside extra for offering raw veg at the table …..


Next ….. I put a dozen chicken legs in the oven to roast

In another pot I had basmati rice

….and in another I had my thai curry paste and coconut milk.


Everything prepared separately, I was able feed the kids rice, chicken and veg..
…..Whilst I added the veg and chicken to my red curry sauce

Cauliflower rice

An extra to my dish, I tried out cauliflower rice to have half and half with the basmati rice.. Link below to get instructions!

So ….. we sat down to eat.
I had a tasty red curry with basmati and cauliflower rice …
Kids had chicken drumsticks rice and veg…. raw on the side!!!!


Everyone fed …. catered for without compromising my own culinary tastes!!

Not bad for a hectic friday evening in our house!!!!!!
