After running my free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge for a few years now, I know one thing most of us following a PCOS diet have in common is the need for quick weeknight meals. And so here’s one that should only take you 20 minutes!
It’s super simple, super delicious, and super useful for getting rid of leftover vegetables. Of course, the recipe specifies some recommended ingredients, but don’t let that stop you from using whatever’s about to expire in your refrigerator. This includes leftover cold meat too.
Since I’ve used cauliflower rice instead of regular rice, this recipe is also very low carb. If you’re trying to lose weight or insulin resistance is an issue for you, then this kind of meal can be just what you need. Normal fried rice can leave you feeling sleepy and de-energized as the rice is quickly converted into glucose. Given that cauliflower has only a fraction of the carbs to convert into glucose, you won’t have this problem with this recipe.
Here’s everything you’ll need to make this PCOS-Friendly Fried Rice:
- Fresh shrimp
- Coconut oil
- Coconut aminos
- Gluten-free tamari sauce
- Fish sauce
My husband has a strong opinion on how fried rice needs to be cooked and this one passed muster with him. I hope it will with you too, enjoy!
P.S. If you are struggling to make the switch to a PCOS diet, I run a free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge every quarter which is the perfect way to really kickstart your health transformation. This live event includes weekly meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, and video lessons, all within a supportive community environment. However, if this recipe has inspired you and you want to get started right away, then I recommend downloading my free 3-Day PCOS Diet Meal Plan as well. It’s a 15-page PDF ebook that contains some of my most popular PCOS recipes, a shopping list ready to go, and some additional information about how to use food to heal your PCOS.
