Fried Cauliflower Rice with Pineapple, Shrimp, and Pork

Nourished App

I hope everyone has been enjoying their summers so far.  I've been a bit MIA since I was busy getting the app update that featured Elana Amsterdam coded and also lining up several incredible bloggers for the next few months of updates to the app. (Put your suggestion in here for a favorite blogger to be included in the app). You can always find me on Instagram though - I love that more than any other form of social media and am usually on it daily.  It's so laid back, full of good vibes, and much more intimate than any other social media network.  Chances are your favorite bloggers are on it and letting you in on sneak peaks of recipes, fun personal pictures, or pictures of what they REALLY eat. You can find me on Instragram at @nourishedapp 

On to food!  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.  This dish has an Asian flair and is also quite pretty.  And since we all know we eat with our eyes first, pretty is a plus!
