Cauliflower rice sushi bowl with teriyaki chicken

Cauliflower rice sushi bowlI quite like sushi but there are several reasons why I don’t really buy/eat/make it anymore. 1. I don’t really want to eat the carbs (it is easier for me to maintain a healthy weight range by avoiding refined carbs). 2. It’s quite expensive and not overly filling. 3. I am not willing to devote the time to making it. But having a sushi bowl with cauliflower rice resolves all of these issues. 1. I eliminated the refined carbs. 2. These sushi bowls are cheap to make. 3. These sushi bowls are quick and easy to make.

I quickly prepared the teriyaki marinade and chopped the chicken before work, then in between cooking the chicken this evening I made the sauce and chopped the salad ingredients. Very simple, fresh, tasty and healthy. If you want extra calories/carbohydrates replace the cauliflower rice with steamed white rice.
