Faux Fried Rice (with Chicken and Eggs)

I'm trying out this new food-exercise regiment. 
It's most definitely a work in progress... 
But I've been steering away from white carbs and sugar.
In doing this, I'm replacing them with more fruits and veggies and added protein. 

Enter:
Cauliflower "Fried" Rice
 (I know I'm not the first person to make this... I wanted to share my experience and my recipe!)


Ingredients
1 head of cauliflower
1 bunch of broccoli
2 eggs
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Splash of soy sauce
Sesame oil
Sesame seeds

Directions
-Grill the chicken breasts with some salt and pepper. Scramble the eggs. 
-Chop the cauliflower into pieces that will fit into your food processor. 
Using the chopping blade fill the canister of the processor and pulse until the cauliflower is the size of rice. Put into a microwavable bowl and zap for 2 minutes.
(This'll give you the rice-y texture)
-Put some sesame oil in a wok and add the cauliflower to "dry fry" it. 
-Add broccoli pieces, chicken (chopped into small bits), and egg.
-Stir fry to your delight.
-If your palette so desires you can add some soy sauce, sesame seeds, and sriracha. 

Enjoy!
