Fried Cauliflower Rice with Pineapple, Shrimp, and Pork
This is a veggie-heavy meal with an Asian flair. If you struggle with getting enough vegetables into your diet, cauliflower rice is one wonderful way of getting more. It has the look and feel of real rice, is as filling as real rice, and yet it is filled with nutrients whereas real rice is not. Skip the pork if in a bit of a rush for a beautiful yet quick weeknight dinner ( I would recommend adding some red pepper flakes to the dish if you skip the pork and still want a bit of a kick).
