Day 5: No Butter Fried Rice for the Brown Rice Diet

Posted by

Vegan Fried Rice

I make this fried rice all the time with a few variations. This one is perfect for the Brown Rice Diet because it is vegan and gluten free, and uses fresh carrots and green onions. You can whip this up in as little as 5 minutes.

No butter, just a dash of sesame oil and a splash of water, and you’re good to go! This fried rice is perfect as a side or a meal.
Recipe type: Fried Rice
Cuisine: Asian
Serves/Makes: 2

  • 1½ Cups Cooked Brown Rice
  • 1 tsp. Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 3 Tbs. Water
  • 1 Tbs. Soy Sauce (add more to taste)
  • ½ Cup Dice Carrots
  • ⅓ Cup Diced Green Onion
  • Pepper to Taste

  1. In a small skillet over high heat, heat the water, sesame oil, and soy sauce together. Add the carrots and wait until it starts to boil.
  2. Then add your rice. Heat thoroughly. Add the green onions, and remove from heat.

I love it because the brown rice gives the appearance of fried rice, and the flavor is so good. This is light with under 200 calories per serving (1 cup) and it helps me meet my fiber intake with nearly 4 grams of fiber. I like to make this for lunch sometimes, or as a quick side dish.

Day 5 went well. I also made an amazing dinner that I’ll share later. And I worked out with some kettle bell workouts that day. Have I mentioned I’m kind of ADD when it comes to working out? I seriously have to do something different everyday for me to want to do it. I’m just not the biggest fan of working out, but if I can make it fun and spontaneous it’s not so bad.
