Guilt free Dirty Rice Recipe

Guilt Free Dirty Rice

Hey Guys Check out this Dirty Rice recipe I made up for my family last night.

I have been trying to eat healthier and lose weight which is hard to do with a family.  Every time I try to introduce a healthy option I am met with resistance from my family.  It’s not an easy transition from the flavorful not so healthy delicious recipes that have been perfected and handed down for years.  My family is use to that great taste.

So,  when I say I’m going to make one of the recipes healthier I get side looks and resistance.  They are the worst critics, so when I try a healthier option I have to make sure it taste great

This Guilt free dirty rice was a winner!  It was such a hit that I decided to share it with you.  Please enjoy this delicious twist to traditional Dirty Rice!
