Coconut Cauliflower Rice with Sweet Coconut Chicken and Broccoli

Coconut Cauliflower Rice with Sweet Coconut Chicken and Broccoli is a high-protein, low carb meal packed with flavor, fiber, and phytonutrients. It’s a healthier take on takeout without tasting “healthy.” Win all around!

When you order takeout chicken and rice with veggies, you might think you’re making a healthier choice. But here’s the deal, most of those takeout dishes are carb-heavy from the rice and contain sauces with hidden sugars and inflammatory oils. That’s a massive blood sugar spike (and crash) waiting to happen. Practically speaking, this can feel like post-meal fatigue and sluggishness followed by cravings an hour or two later.

You can get the same taste, but with a much better macronutrient profile and completely different effect on the body with two simple changes. First, swap out regular rice for cauliflower rice. Second, make your own flavorful but added sugar free sauce.

I’m always looking to reimagine my favorite foods into Fab Four versions that satisfy cravings but nourish my body and wellbeing, too. Let’s see how this version of Chicken Broccoli and Rice plays out in terms of blood sugar balance:

  • Protein: chicken
  • Fat: coconut oil, coconut milk, ghee
  • Fiber and Greens: broccoli, cauliflower, chives

When you hit the Fab Four marks – protein, fat, fiber, and greens – you’re able to calm hunger hormones, enjoy long-lasting energy, and feel balanced and energized for hours. I’ve worked with everyone from Hollywood A-Listers to stay at home moms, and the Fab Four has helped them look and feel their best. You can optimize metabolic health and body composition without dieting or ditching food groups! Food freedom always wins in my book.
