  • 4 medium zucchinis
  • 4 carrots
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbsp sesame seed oil, separated
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1.5 lbs pork, diced (can substitute chicken or other protein)
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 4 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Chop your carrots, zucchini, celery, and onion.
    4 medium zucchinis, 4 carrots, 3 celery stalks, 1 onion
  • Warm 1 tbsp of the sesame seed oil in a large pan.
    2 tbsp sesame seed oil, separated
  • Once the sesame seed oil is warm enough, add in your chopped veggies. Allow them to cook for about 7-10 minutes, stirring regularly so they do not burn.
  • Season the vegetables with the ground ginger, salt, and pepper. You can also season to taste with salt and pepper if desired.
    2 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper
  • Remove your vegetables from the pan. Add some more sesame seed oil to the pan and cook your meat of choice, stirring regularly until everything is cooked through.
    1.5 lbs pork, diced (can substitute chicken or other protein)
  • Move your protein to the sides of the pan to make some space in the middle of the pan. Crack the eggs in the center and allow them to cook for about 30 seconds, and then scramble them in the pan. Continue to stir so that the eggs cook thoroughly.
    4 eggs
  • Once both the eggs and the protein have cooked through completely, add back in your vegetables, adding in your cauliflower rice at the same time. Stir thoroughly.
    4 cups cauliflower rice
  • Pour the coconut aminos over the stir fry and allow it to simmer for about 10 minutes on low.
    3/4 cup coconut aminos
