    Healthy Substitutions for this faux cheesy rice

    Standard white rice has 200 calories per cup. For 1 cup of cauliflower rice it’s only 20 calories! How’s that for a bargain!

    So, to make this I used:

    • 2 cups frozen cauliflower rice. I have a large bag from Costco, that you can just put in the microwave for 6-7 minutes, in the bag and all. While it’s cooking, I prepare the cheese. SAVINGS 360 CALORIES from 2 cups of regular rice.
    • 1 tablespoon cheese powder. Have you talked about the cheese powder before? I used it on my scrambled eggs the other day here. I bought the cheese powder on Amazon for $9.41 for 1 lb. It only has 25 calories per tablespoon, and I’m convinced it’s going to last me forever! (SAVING 85 calories compared to 1 ounce full fat cheese)
    • 1 ounce fat free cream cheese– combining the cheese powder with the fat free cream cheese, makes a super creamy cheesy. (saving 60 calories from full fat cream cheese)
    • 1 tablespoon almond milk to make it runny enough to stir into the cauliflower. You can add more almond milk if you need to, but don’t over do it.
