Did you have a wonderful weekend?  Can you believe 2017 happened 9 days ago?

I don’t know about you, but for me, it feels like New Years was a month ago, not a little over a week.  I am so ready for 2017 to be uneventful.  Yes, uneventful.

I want it to be a quiet, positive and healing year.

Are you sticking to the healthy eating plan for 2017?

I have been doing a pretty good job. Trying to make recipes that are simple and quick is my key to success right now. My schedule has been a bit hectic, so the easier and quicker the recipe, the happier eater I become.

I have really been working on 30 minutes or less, and one or two pan dinner recipes.

This Paleo Orange Chicken recipe is also perfect for everyone who is on a Macro diet. The protein, carb to fat is balanced.

This high protein recipe is perfect for filling you up and satisfying you at the end of your day.  Serving this chicken over cauliflower rice, gives you more fiber, vitamin K, and folate.

If you are not on the paleo diet you can serve your Orange Chicken over a simple cooked rice.

I really hope you will give the cauliflower rice a try. It is a delicious and healthy substitute for rice that allows us all to eat more vegetables without feeling like your eating more vegetables. Which makes it the perfect way to get the kiddos to eat more fiber.
