This Pineapple Vegetable Turmeric Fried Rice is a healthy version of the unhealthy fried rice fav. Enjoy this guilt free next time your craving take out.
Pineapples, Vegetables and Tumeric, all healthy ingredients and then made into fried rice that is still healthy?!? Yes, folks, it does exist and it’s a mouth-watering explosion of amazingness in one meal.
And it’s all part of the Bulletproof Diet.
Well, this site. This site all of the sudden became a challenge.
The actual Bulletproof Diet allows you many amazing choices as far as foods go and technically you can eat anything because all foods are grouped into 3 main categories: bulletproof foods, suspect foods, and kryptonite foods. If you want to truly be bulletproof though, which I do because it means energy, focus and weight loss you need to stay away from suspect and kryptonite foods. (And if you can believe it sugar falls into the kryptonite category! 😩 Life can be so unfair!).
Even the “Bulletproof” list of foods is fairly diverse, but it’s still limiting and thus my food/recipe/moments of kitchen inspiration are also limited. Therein lies the challenge with this blog.
I’ve been forced to use the fairly diverse, yet limited, ingredient options and really tried to force myself to be creative and make recipes such as this Pineapple Vegetable Turmeric Fired Rice.
This recipe is a meal I ate on the “no protein” day of the diet, which you do once a week and though it’s not one of the suggested recipes in the book it is made with Bulletproof approved ingredients, with the exception of the pineapple (you can easily omit it and it tastes just as good). This dish is one I’d eat regularly because I LOVED it and thus it’s one way I’d incorporate this diet into my life.
Surprisingly so, or not really so surprisingly, I’d eat this dish regularly because I LOVED it! That is the good news.
I’ve also reached a point in this diet journey where it’s time to truly incorporate the diet into daily life, which means more recipes like this one. I’m a bit nervous to veer away from the recipes in the book, but we’ll see what happens and worst case I can always switch back if needed.
Truth be told, I’m still not completely convinced the Bulletproof Diet is right for me as I’m entering my 3rd-week eating/living this way. I’m not ready to give in either though and will continue to power though and keep you posted on my progress.
I enjoy dining out, cocktails and all things containing sugar, for the most part, and while it’s the constant combination of these three categories that got me in the diet dilemma I’m now in, it’s now time to very lightly sprinkle them back into everyday life. After all, you do have to enjoy life, right?
I’ll keep you posted how this all turns out…
