Paleo Cauliflower Rice and Chicken

Paleo is becoming one of the most popular diets. I love trying new things and hope you do too.

This is a great recipe, especially if you are a rice lover 😃. Rice used to be a big part of my diet but not so much anymore. Instead we these days only have it occasionally. “Cauliflower rice” is a great substitute for rice and it’s super easy to make, not to mention that the taste is super fresh. The mix of lime coconut milk and oil plus the cilantro gives this recipe a great kick.
