Good Tuesday, all.

Today I want to talk about a product I found in the grocery store that could make your meal prep time easier and shorter.  I am all  for whole foods and less processed food but that does not mean that I am for lots of prep, steps galore and fancy skills.  No, I am for healthy, easy and practical.


I found a product by Full Green called “Cauli  Rice.” It is pre-shredded cauliflower that you can use instead of white rice.  The one I picked up was Cauliflower Rice with broccoli. The ingredients list is: cauliflower (60%) and broccoli (40%).  That’s it.  Just cauliflower and broccoli. You could do it yourself – chop the cauliflower and broccoli until they are uniformly small –  but why would you when you can get someone else to do it for you?

This is a real timesaver.  You microwave the contents for 2 1/2 minutes and you have a side dish ready to put on the table.  Are you running late and everyone is hungry?  Hot vegetable coming up.  Add some left over meat – like chicken – and a salad and you are feeding the family a healthy sit down meal that is ready in approximately 10 minutes.

Of course this requires a little pre-planning on your part.  These cauli – rice products are shelf stable and can be found in the rice section of the store.  I found them at my local Kroger’s.

So today’s baby step is to be prepared for those times when you are running late or you just don’t feel like making a big to-do about dinner.  It’s OK to use something that is just as good as you could make – if it is healthy.  Yay if it knocks out one of your prep steps!  Life is short – enjoy the healthy short cuts.
