Today I'd like to share one of my favourite one-pot breakfast / dinner recipes. I prep my vegetables ahead and keep them in the fridge - it takes just a few minutes to cook. You can use kale or chard to make this recipe. I used rainbow chard also known as Swiss chard in various colours. Apart from using it in a hash or stir-fry, you can use Swiss chard in several other ways: in salads, butter-roasted as a side, or even to make wraps filled with vegetables, cheese, meat or eggs.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi Martina, this looks incredible, healthy and nutritious. I have included it in my Best Low Carb Christmas Leftover Recipes roundup as it would be a great way to utilise all that leftover roast meat. Take care, Libby.


Thank you so much Libby!


Yum this looks great. Definitely going to make it a part of my whole 30 meal plan!


Thank you Chantelle!! Yes, this is definitely great for Whole30 😊


This looks amazing I could eat it for breakfast, lunch AND dinner! Definitely going on my "recipes to make" list 😀


Thank you so much!! 😊


does the cali-rice taste like cooked cauliflower?  I was force-feed cauliflower as a child and to this day cannot eat it, even 50 years later, without gagging and throwing up but if it does not take like cooked cauliflower, i might be able to eat it.... hate to waste fund on something I will regurgitate, ya know  ;)


I can't taste any cauliflower and I guess that's because there are other ingredients that mask the flavour 😊 Even this recipe doesn't taste like cauliflower: Book Review: Low-Carb, So Simple (Yellow Cauliflower Couscous)


look delicious


Thank you!


Love the runny eggs on top!! My hubby likes them hard boiled but that's how I'll make them for myself. I don't know where to find chard but it should work with kale and turkey sausages?


Yes that should work too! 😊


This is my kind of meal! Will be making it tomorrow... maybe add some bacon too 😉


Thank Pauline, hope you like it! 😊
