THAI-INSPIRED FRIED RICE

THAI-INSPIRED FRIED RICE

This fried rice is such a refreshing meal. To make it you’ll need leeks, scallions, red bells, carrots, fresh ginger, sea salt, coconut sugar, Jasmine rice, and organic pasture-raised eggs. Make it your own by adding your fave veggies, coconut aminos (if tolerated), or fresh garlic. Just leave out the eggs if you want to keep it V.

***You’ll cook the jasmine rice beforehand, refrigerate it, then use it to make this recipe. Preparing the coconut oil rice this way increases resistant starch, and cuts calories by 60%!***
