Charlie And The Healthy Factory Recipe: Cauliflower Rice

Beginner Yogi interviewed Charlie Barber from the website Charlie Barber And The Healthy Factory this month.

If you are a teenager (or a parent with teens) interested in health and wellbeing then you’ll love what Charlie had to say about the topic and her approach to a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Charlie’s favourite recipe out of her e-book ‘Lunchbox Love‘ is the Cauliflower Rice, and she was kind enough to share the recipe and a photo with Beginner Yogi readers!
