Whole30: Pineapple Coconut Fried “Rice”

Cauliflower Rice! If you are on Whole30 you will probably be eating a lot of cauliflower, whether that excites you or not, this Fried “Rice” recipe should! I love pineapple fried rice so I knew I wanted to try my hand at a Whole30 version and it came out great. It made a ton and it was great on its own or as a side. Also my boyfriend loved it, he could not stop talking about it!

Add Chicken or pork for some extra protein or leave out the eggs to make it vegan!
