Pineapple Fried Rice (Egg-free)
Updated: Oct 27, 2021
I love this recipe because
My kids will eat it and
Its a great way to clean out the fridge
You can think of this recipe as more of a guideline. If you have different veggies you need to eat up, feel free to use them! I've used purple cabbage, kale, spinach, sugar snap peas and broccoli before, all with delicious results. This particular combination of pineapple and veggies was a hit with the kids so I try to stick with it. Every once in a while I will add scrambled eggs, if I have them available. In general though, I try to stay away from them. I've noticed that it leaves myself and my kids a bit congested.
The average person eats over 350 eggs per year, including whole eggs and also all the foods with hidden egg ingredients.
Humans have eaten eggs for thousands of years. They were once an amazing survival food for us to eat in areas of the planet where there were no other food options during certain times of the year. That changed, however, at the turn of the 20th century when the auto-immune, viral, bacterial, and cancer epidemics began.
Eggs, along with dairy and gluten, are the most inflammatory foods you can eat. When you have a weakened digestive system, including low hydrochloric acid, eggs can cause an increase in ammonia, which can saturate and irritate the central nervous system.
If you're struggling with any illness such as Lyme disease, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, or fibromyalgia, avoiding eggs can give your body the support it needs to get better.
The biggest issue with eggs is that they're a prime food for cancer and other cysts, fibroids, tumors, and nodules. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), breast cancer, or other cysts and tumors should avoid eggs altogether. Also, if you're trying to prevent cancer, fight an existing cancer, or avoid a cancer relapse, steer clear of eggs!
Eggs also cause inflammation and allergies; feed viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, Candida, and other fungus; and trigger edema in the lymphatic system. Often people who are diagnosed with Candida or mycotoxins are told that eggs are a good, safe protein that will starve the Candida and mycotoxins when in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.
Give this egg-free fried rice a try and pay attention to how you feel afterwards. You might be surprised at the results!
3 tbsp of Avocado oil
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1 - 14 oz. package of riced cauliflower
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp grated ginger root
1 cup of brown jasmine rice, cooked
1/4 cup coconut aminos
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 medium carrot, grated
2 cups of fresh pineapple chunks (or frozen, defrosted)
1 cup of frozen peas
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds, either white or black
Salt to taste
Chopped cilantro for serving
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the avocado oil and once it starts to shimmer, add the green onions and cook for a minute stirring constantly.
Add the riced cauliflower and red bell pepper and sauté for another 5 minutes until the red bell pepper softens a bit. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
Add the cooked brown jasmine rice and stir to combine. Allow the rice to cook without stirring for 3-4 minutes, getting a good, brown crust to form a bit. Add the coconut aminos and red pepper flakes and stir to combine.
Next, add the shredded carrot, frozen peas, and pineapple chunks and stir together. Allow to cook for another 3-5 minutes.
Remove from heat and add the sesame oil and garnish with sesame seeds, salt, and chopped cilantro. Stir to combine and serve immediately.
