When sticking with a clean diet, as you work toward your fitness goals, it’s a great idea to make healthier versions of your favorite foods, in order to keep your hunger satiated and to prevent falling off the healthy eating wagon.
Today I have a remake of stir-fried rice for you that is made with fiber-filled cauliflower instead of grain-filled rice and has flavor and protein additions galore. This version of cauliflower rice is PACKED with protein! Eggs and albacore tuna make this rice the perfect side to your meal when you’re on a mission to slim down.
What you need
1 head cauliflower
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 green onions, chopped
½ red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 can albacore tuna, in water
Sea salt and black pepper
1. Using a food processor with the grating blade, grate all of the cauliflower.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium. Add the onions and bell peppers, sauté for 3 minutes. Add the tuna and eggs, stir to combine. When the eggs have set, add the grated cauliflower and mix to combine.
3. Season the rice mixture with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for another 5 minutes. Enjoy!

Happy New Year! Before you move forward to set new resolutions for 2021, let’s take a moment to look back and reflect on your results in 2020.
Did you accomplish your goals this past year? (YES or NO) If “NO” then answer these 5 Questions for insight into your failure.
1️. Were your goals clearly written down and reviewed regularly?
If you’re ambiguous about what you are setting off to achieve then it will never culminate in anything concrete. By writing down your goals in specific, clear terms and reviewing them regularly, you’ll be on track to achieve huge things in 2021.
2. Did you use the SMART System for defining your goals?
SMART Is an acronym for setting achievable goals. It stands for SPECIFIC, MEASURABLE, ATTAINABLE, REALISTIC and TIME BOUND. Don’t skip over this step – setting SMART goals is the difference between achieving your dreams and having yet another year slide by without any measurable results to show for it. Use the SMART filter for setting goals — and REFLECT on and REVIEW your RESULTS with regularity.
3️. Did your goals align with your values?
If your goal was to lose weight and to finally achieve a lean, fit, healthy body then why did you continue to glorify greasy, unhealthy food? Why did you look at exercise as a punishment to be avoided? Your value system must line up with your goals. In fitness this means having a positive attitude about exercise and healthy eating.
4️. Did you create accountability around your goals?
Who did you tell about your goal to finally lose the weight and get fit? If you kept it to yourself then you missed out on a huge opportunity for accountability and support. This support is what you lean on through the tough times when jumping off the wagon seems like the only option.
Take a moment to reflect on the answers to these questions above BEFORE answering the next question.
5️. What was the root cause of your failure?
I don’t know what your specific root cause of failure was, only you do, but I can tell you confidently that if you join my program in 2021 you will blow past your failure to achieve the success that has always alluded you. You get one shot -- one life -- so what are you waiting for?
It’s time to expand, grow, seek, achieve. Feel the fire — fall down, get up, shake it off and get back in the game. 2021 has the potential of being the best year yet... but it starts right now.
