I started to experiment with certain foods that may have been causing my belly bloat, foods such as, broccoli, brussels sprouts, oatmeal, banana, grainy carbs, however I didn’t have much luck.Cauliflower Fried Rice - gluten free, dairy free, low carb

And then one day I decided to try the gluten-free fad, and BOOM, my belly bloat went down to half its size. Finally! After all these years, I figured it out! Imagine my relief!

  • Chop the garlic, ginger and onion.
  • Heat up a wok on medium-high heat. Once hot, add oil. Add ginger and garlic. Saute for 20 seconds.
  • Add onion. Saute for a couple minutes.
  • Crack 2 eggs over the onion.
  • Keep stirring the eggs for a minute or so. They may stick to your wok, that's okay.
  • Add the cauliflower fried rice (I used Trader Joe's).
  • Stir and let the cauliflower crisp up - about 5 minutes.
  • Set aside your frozen ingredients - peas, carrots and corn.
  • Once the cauliflower is done, add the frozen veggies. Also add soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and siracha. Stir. Let the cauliflower cook for about 5 minutes until hot.
  • In the meantime, chop the scallions.
  • Once the fried rice is done, add the scallions. Stir.
  • Add a teaspoon of toasted sesame oil.
  • Top with black pepper and a touch of salt (if need be).
  • On the side I sauteed some bok choy in extra virgin olive oil and garlic. (optional)
  • Serve immediately.
