Trending: Coated Skinny Jeans

I recently talked about my favorite denim trend for fall - traditional skinny jeans. But as the fall denim guides come out, I'm reminded of a few more favorites, like boyfriend jeans and coated denim. Ken and I recently saw some coated skinnies at Target, so it looks like the trend will be widely available this year and at various price points. Image via Amazon Fashion

Lightened Up (Baked) Egg Fried Rice


Have you ever seen egg fried rice prepared at a Chinese restaurant? It starts with a ton of butter. While that makes it taste delicious, it also adds a lot of fat and calories to an otherwise healthy dish. Make it at home and you can cut out all of that extra fat!

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 eggs
  • 3-4 cups steamed rice (go for brown for some extra goodness)
  • few tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1-2 cups mixed veggies (you could use fresh or frozen; peas, chopped carrots, onions, broccoli, snow peas, peppers, mushrooms, the possibilities here are nearly endless)
  • black pepper and salt to taste
  • grated ginger root or garlic (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Prep the rice in a steamer or boiling pot according to directions on the package. Use 1 to 2 cups dried rice. Whether you're using fresh or frozen veggies, toss them in the same pot when the rice is just about done and mix thoroughly. *If you're using fresh onions or mushrooms, you'll want to saute them first by browning them in a shallow pan with oil or butter for a few minutes. When the rice is finished, add in the spices and soy sauce and stir.

2. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spread the rice and veggies evenly into a shallow casserole dish.

3. Beat 4 eggs and pour over the rice. Use a spoon to spread it and help it work it's way into the rice.

4. Bake about 12-15 minutes or until the egg is thoroughly cooked. Before serving fluff the rice with a fork.


*Serve my Baked Egg-Fried Rice with steamed dumplings or spring rolls. To make it a more filling main dish, simply add in cooked chicken breast..
