One of the Best Things I’ve Done for My Running and Avocado Cauliflower Rice.

7 miles before 7 a.m. with the morning run crew followed up with some pretty fantastic coffee. If you ever go to this place make sure to order their almond milk latte…it is kind of the best thing ever.

I have to say one of the best things I’ve done for my running as of late is to join back up with a running group. The support/accountability is amazing. It’s one of the things that has kept me going since 2009 when I first started running with Luke’s Locker, a local running store/group in the DFW area. So If you’ve lost your fire or are looking for some motivation/another way to spice up your solo running…definitely joining a gang of like minded people just might take you to the next level.

It’s not only invaluable…it’s a truly priceless thing. And a good way to make new friends! I just love it.

So since it has been a while since I’ve shared a recipe let’s talk about what’s been going on in the kitchen! Lately I’ve been all about quick meals that don’t leave me slaving away on the stove. This cauliflower rice is absolute perfection with some chicken or shrimp on top. Pick your protein and go to town.

Here’s what you need:

-Crumbled cauliflower (You can chop it up yourself but I love buying the fresh steamable bags from Green Giant. Cuts all the prep work out)
-Avocado, chopped
-Garlic powder/Mrs. Dash/Salt & pepper to taste
-Crumbled feta or goat cheese

Chop up and/or cook your cauliflower and drain water, pat dry. Mix in crumbled cheese & seasonings. Cut up avocado, mix in and serve. So good with baked chicken on top!

  1. Oh that looks like an easy and yummy recipe. I always say I am going to try these cauliflower recipes but never get a chance. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    My sister just got me a recipe book for crock pots. So I might look at some new things in there. The only thing is I want to get a new crock pot. One that has a timer to turn on 3-4 hours later. I usually have it on for at least 8 hours on high and 3 hours warm, by the time we get home, I feel like it’s overcooked.

  2. i have a running group I go with for long runs on the weekends. i’ve skipped out on the last few weekends because i’ve needed my solo time but it is a great motivator to have people wonder where you are and also keep you company for those long hot miles!
