Vegetable Fried Rice (20 mins) – Clean Eating

15 Jan
2

One of my new year resolutions is definitely to lose weight and eat healthier.  A few of my friends are trying the clean eating stuff, which means no dairy, no red meat.   I don’t know if I can do that since I’m such a meat lover, but I certainly want to try eating more veggie.  I made vegetable fried rice the other day cos I didn’t have any meat at home.  It has been snowing so much in NY, and I kind of stuck at home for days and didn’t get a chance to go grocery shopping.  But the dish turned out really yummy.  I didn’t feel deprived.  I’m going to make it a few more times.  Plus, it does fit into the clean eating rules. 

Cook veggie first

Add celery, mushrooms, rice and egg

Mix everything well
