Meal prep tips - If you like to meal prep, as a lot of us with busy lifestyles do, cauliflower fried rice adapts really well. Make the base cauliflower fried rice omitting the shrimp. This base can be kept refrigerated for several days and served either as a low carb side or main course with some added protein.
