Yeast-Free Fried Rice!

We are almost a week into our second month of yeast -free dieting so I thought now would be a great time to share a recipe!  If you’ve found yourself missing Chinese take-out, this yeast- free version of fried rice is sure to please. Even my finicky fiancé enjoyed it!

       Ingredients:

-          1 head of cauliflower florets

-          1 small onion, minced

-          2 eggs

-          1 large carrot, diced

-          1 tablespoon of grated ginger

-          2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro

-          1 tablespoon of dried basil (Or 2 tablespoons of fresh)

-          1 tablespoon of chopped mint

-          2 tablespoons of coconut oil

-          1 cup of broccoli, chopped

-          Salt

-          Black pepper

-          Paprika

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Directions:

Pulse the cauliflower in the food processor until the pieces are small and resemble rice. Chop the remaining ingredients and set aside.

Heat a large skillet (I used a cast iron), over medium heat. While your skillet is heating whisk the eggs together with salt and pepper and make a thin flat omelet. Remove the omelet from the pan, let cool, and set aside. Then in the same pan bring to heat the coconut oil. I turned my temperature up to about medium-high. Add the onion and carrot. Once the carrots soften a bit add the broccoli, salt, pepper, and a little paprika. Cook until the broccoli is fork tender, and then add the cauliflower. Season the dish with more salt, pepper and a bit more paprika if you’d like, then cover and cook for 5 minutes until the cauliflower is soft. Beware of over cooking because the cauliflower can turn mushy.

The last step is adding the dried basil and the fresh chopped herbs, stirring everything together and serving as either a side dish or as its own meal! This dish would be delicious with shrimp, chicken, pork or beef stirred in also!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you all enjoyed my version of yeast-free fried rice!

 

 

 

Website Walkthrough!

A question we sometimes receive in the pharmacy is “How do I refill my prescriptions online?” Refilling online can be quick, easy and most importantly it will save you 10 percent off your order, which really adds up over time!

To help answer this question I have put together a walk-through of how to use our website. Of course if you still have any questions give us a call and we will gladly walk you through it!

Step 2: If you are a new customer click on “create your order now”, existing customers please log-in with your e-mail address and password. If you forget this information you can call us and we can give it to you.

Step 4: This will then take you to the “Prescriptions” tab. Here you will select what medications you would like to refill.

You can use the comments box for many things, including strength, prescription number, coupon codes and gift cards, or special instructions (i.e.; Call when ready.)

Time to Order Your Diflucan!

As most of you already know the first month of Yeast-Free with Me is coming to a close. If you started with us on January 16 you are entering your fourth week of the eating program. This is a major accomplish and everyone should pat themselves on the back right now! Since you have successfully made it this far, don’t forget one last and very important step to the Yeast-Free Eating Program: taking your Diflucan (Fluconazole.)

Diflucan is a systemic, anti-fungal medication; this is one of the last steps in eradicating the yeast from your colon. The Diflucan should be taken during the fourth week of your Yeast-Free diet, unless told otherwise by your physician. I plan on continuing my Yeast-Free challenge for two more months! Any other blog followers out there plan on doing the diet for a full three months with me? If so post a comment and let me know, that way we can continue cheering each other on!
