Happy Friday Everyone. I hope you all had a good week. I celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary and had a fabulous time going on a date with my Hubby. He got me new Brooks Ghost6 shoes which made me super happy. They are fabulous and make my feet just as happy to be running again:) He also told me about our fun surprise trip we are going on just the two of us. Europe Here We Come!! Woot Woot! I’m so excited. I will miss my little girl for sure, but this trip is a dream trip for me. Can not wait!

My new shoes (Ghost6)

Well on to the recipe for today. This healthy version of Fried Rice is amazing and a great alternative to the classic Chinese dish. I originally found this recipe HERE. I wanted to try it and share it with all of you. It was very easy to make and makes a great side dish to any meal or add chicken and it can be the main course. So here is is. DSC_0340

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 green onions, sliced

Directions:

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet over low heat. Add eggs and fry until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side, flipping only once. Let cool before dicing into small pieces.
