Nasi goreng with cauliflower rice (paleo, whole30)
Nasi goreng but upping the veggies
Nasi goreng is definitely one of my favorite quick meals. I’d say it would almost be called a “Dutch” staple as a lot of people here eat this dish. A lot. Most use a ready made package with herbs (and mostly salt), rice and peanut sauce… Which technically makes it less than healthy. But change a few items in this dish and you have a clear winner.
I replace the rice with cauliflower rice and for seasoning I use a simple red curry paste that I make myself. We have some pretty good store bought variaties as well but they all contain sugar. So making it yourself is the better option always. It’s quick and delicious!
I’ve also made quite a big decision this week as well and that is to start working as a health coach. I’ve followed all these trainings (and am still doing a few as we speak) so it is more or less a logical step to take. For now that will be mostly in Dutch as it will be live coaching but I am also developing a couple of online programs which might be in two languages. I’m not sure how I’ll be going forward with it. I always have so many ideas in my head but sadly not more than 24 hours in a day. Haha.. So I need to see what I can do! Stay tuned!
