KETO: Spicy Chicken and "Rice" and Bullet Coffee

Since the end of December, my husband and I have been eating low carb, save for a couple cheat days. I have lost just under 26 pounds since then! This morning I decided to try something new with our cauliflower, and the results were fantastic!

I just kept adding spices and tasting the result, these are approximations of what I added. Your tastes may vary.

Spicy Chicken and Riced Cauliflower
Serves 4

1   head of cauliflower, cut and steamed
2 chicken breasts, fully cooked and diced
2   oz crumbled cheddar cheese (I prefer sharp, but medium works)
3   TBS butter, unsalted
1 TBS Sriracha
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
salt and pepper to taste
1 TBS Sour Cream - on the side (per serving)

Mash up the cauliflower and put over low heat on the stove top. Add the cheddar cheese and butter and stir until melted and incorporated. Add the rest of the seasonings, mix well, and taste the result. Add more of whatever it takes to make this dish great for you. Serve with a dollop of sour cream!

According to MyFitnessPal, each serving gives you:
283 calories
7 carbs minus 3 fiber = 4 net carbs

Bullet Coffee
Serves 1

This recipe has been replicated numerous times, and I am certainly not the originator of it. My version is as follows:

Brewed Coffee - 1 cup
1 TBS Nutiva Coconut Oil
1 TBS Darigold 40 Heavy Cream
2 TBS Sugar Free Vanilla

Blend the coffee with the coconut oil, then add cream and sweetener and blend once more to froth up the drink. Fantastic way to get your caffeine and a high dose of fat for breakfast!
