cauliflower "fried rice" from the folks at Goop

I feel as though I should be apologizing for this post on so many levels.  Two uber healthy recipes in a row..., the photos I took look pretty gross..., it's not even my recipe..., and YES, I subscribe to Gwyneth's Goop on a regular basis.  It is what it is, and frankly, this is good.  I made it for dinner last night, to pair oven roasted salmon, and it was absolutely delicious.  Mr. Butter loved it, and we both stuffed our faces without feeling too guilty.
Just to be clear - this recipe is taken directly from the folks at Goop.  I've come across several versions of "cauliflower rice" over the last few weeks as everyone scrambles to lose a few holiday pounds, and this one looked the best.  As per the usual, I added a few ingredients to suit my own taste - which is exactly what I suggest that you do as well.

detox with pancakes !

Happy New Year! I haven't posted anything since August... i know, i know, i know.  
Sooooo, in an effort to be a better blogger, and a healthier body in 2015 ( i know, i know, i know...) I'm starting the year with a recipe for truly healthy PANCAKES.  I don't know about you, but I find it  difficult to swallow a cold, green smoothie on a morning when the windchill factor is 21 BELOW zero.  I need something warm and comforting that pairs well with several cups of very hot (and very strong) coffee.
These pancakes are gluten-free, dairy free, and paleo (w/ the exception of the baking soda which you can omit if need be.)  I promise this recipe will fill your belly and warm your soul as you prepare to face these freezing cold winter days!
