Clean Eating Coconut Cauliflower

Chicken With Green Onions

(Makes 4 servings)
1 can light coconut milk
2 chicken breasts
1 head cauliflower
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. cumin
2-4 green onions
Step 1 – Clean your cauliflower and steam it in a large pot.
Step 2 – Slice your chicken breasts into strips.
Step 3 – Place all ingredients (except the green onions) in a second pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. But don’t let it boil too hard, or it will burn. Just a nice medium boil will do.
Step 4 – Using a meat thermometer, test your chicken when it looks done. It’s finished cooking when it reaches 170 degrees F.
Step 5 – Ladle into bowls, add as much cauliflower as you like, top with green onions and serve.

I love Pasta but don't often eat it.
Now with the use of Brown Rice Pasta
you can enjoy it without as much guilt

Brown Rice Pasta

  • 6 - 8 Large Shrimp peeled & de-veined

  • Sprinkle of parmesan cheese
  • Fresh Basil


1. Rinse & pat the shrimp dry. Spray a pan with olive oil spray. Heat pan and add the shrimp. Sprinkle with a spicy "no Salt seasoning such as Mrs. Dash. I also like to add a tiny bit of smoked paprika. When shrimp are cooked remove from heat and set aside.

Today I ate at a small Tapas restaurant with a friend for my reward meal. It was great because I could have tiny tastes of everything without going too crazy in the calorie department. We shared a Coconut Panna Cotta that had strawberries, blueberries, raspberries & blackberries on it - yummy! Here is a much lower calorie version!
