Who Says That Fried Rice Can't Be Healthy?

One of the best things about this recipe ..... besides the fact that it is good for you ..... is that you can use up your refrigerator's leftovers!

And, you basically just throw everything into your slow-cooker.

This makes for an easy, family-friendly dinner, that covers all of your macronutrients, too.

Healthy Clean Eats Slow-Cooker "Fried Rice"
Approximately 6 servings

2 cups leftover brown rice (you could also sub quinoa instead of brown rice)
2 tbsp. organic coconut oil
2 tbsp. coconut aminos or Bragg's liquid aminos (soy sauce substitute)
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt
1/2 of a diced yellow onion
2-3 cups of leftover vegetables (I used carrots, onions, celery, and asparagus)
2-3 cups of leftover cooked chicken, shredded or chopped
1-2 eggs (with no shell)
Mix everything together, and cook on high for 2-3 hours, or on low for 3-4 hours.  You are simply cooking the egg(s) and heating everything up.  This is SO good and I love having the leftovers in the fridge afterwards, too!
