Do you love Chinese food? I sure do! And of course fried rice is a classic dish – it’s been around for over 1,400 years! – and is always yummy and satisfying. But it is sooo off-plan when we’re eating healthy – too many carbs, plus those pesky grains.

Have no fear, Dr. Emily is here! 🤩 I’ve got you covered with this CleanKeto-friendly version of classic chicken, pork, shrimp or egg fried “rice” (using the ever-versatile cauliflower rice), that’s just as quick, easy and tasty as the classic, but this one is oh-so good for you (unlike the classic version!).

This recipe is Paleo, low carb, Keto, and Whole30, and if you leave out the carrots and the sriracha, it’s on-plan for my 10-Day Detox.

So let’s get to it!



  • 2 Tbsp avocado or coconut oil, divided
  • 1# boneless pastured chicken thigh meat, diced, or 1# ground pork or 1# wild-caught shrimp
  • 2 pastured eggs, whisked (use 4 eggs if not adding other protein)
  • 2 carrots, shredded (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger root, minced or grated
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 12 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds


  1. Heat a wok or large skillet over medium high heat for 1 minute.
  2. Add avocado oil to pan and swirl.
  3. Now add the chicken, pork or shrimp, if using.
  4. Sauté chicken for several minutes (longer for pork, shorter for shrimp), stirring frequently, until cooked through.
  5. Remove protein from pan into a bowl, and set aside.
  6. Pour eggs into still-hot pan and stir constantly for 1 minute until cooked.
  7. Remove eggs from pan and place in bowl with cooked chicken (pork).
