Cauliflower Fried Rice- nope Im not crazy!!

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Well I was a lot sceptical because I am not a big fan of cauliflower and I do quite like rice so when I decided to try this as a rice substitute I was a bit hmmmm.
 But it is delicious, truly yum.
Hubby and the kiddos loved it and went back for more!
Take a head of cauliflower, grate it through the large holes side of the grater or if you are lazy like me blitz it in the food processor til it is crumbly grainy (aka like rice!)
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in the wok,
Add some onions and stir about til translucent, add some bacon if you would like some ( I again took the lazy option and used 50gm of shredded ham) the toss all the cauliflower into the hot wok, keep it all moving until it is tender- about 4-5 minutes then add whatever veg you like, I used fresh peas from the garden,  diced capsicum, chopped spinach leaves, garlic, mushrooms, You could also add a chopped up scrambled egg (but DD13 hadn’t collected them yet!)
Add 2 tablespoons of dark unsweetened soy sauce ( i use mushroom soy because it is really lovely)
You are done- just like fried rice and we really did enjoy it.
At under 70 calories for a big bowl- I was really pleased & the kiddos got a heap of good veg and almost didn’t know it!!

What are The Glory Gals about?

God is my strength, apart from Him I can do nothing, yet in the area of weight loss I somehow exclude God.

I have thought about this and I think it is because I feel a bit ashamed of how little self control I have. I have read many other gals stories who are on this weight loss journey too and it seems like alot of us have similar feelings of inadequacy, guilt, failure.

I think that it is time to say "Enough of that!"
It’s not about us, our lives are for His glory.
 Lets walk with The King and live how He made us to- with our image of ourselves lining up with His word. I don’t want to open the door for the enemy to whisper condemnation and guilt in and to rub my nose in my failures.
I want to run to God, seek His truth and ask for His support on this journey.
If you would like to join me lets read and encourage each other along this journey, today is a good day to start but most of all lets invite God in.

In His Grace,

I have recently strated back on a weight loss journey and I am looking forward to having this blog as a place that we can share some thoughts, recipes, encouragement and most of all invite God into the journey.

I would love to do study's together and find put some spiritual food into my diet too.

I track my progress, but this is not my only goal, my hearts desire is to press into God in every area of my life and learn what His word says about it all,

I'd love you to join me- its good to have buddies to walk with!!
