Don’t stress, you’ve got it under control. [Swirled]

Recipe Of The Day: Cauliflower fried rice is the ultimate takeout fake-out. Stir fry your favorite veggies like snow peas, carrots, cabbage and combine with cooked egg whites. Then continue cooking the mixture together with cauliflower rice and season the whole dish with sesame oil (a little goes a long way) and teriyaki sauce. It’s sure to make you (and your wallet) full and happy. [Hungry Girl]

A quick tip from yours truly: Start with fresh (or frozen) pre-made riced cauliflower instead of making your own and save a ton of time.

For some people, haggling prices at a open-air market is an art form, a skill as natural as breathing. For others, it may not come as easy but there are three things to remember if and when you do decide to haggle: be confident, be casual and be flexible. Being aggressive or wide-eyed about an item may turn the seller off or worse, they may end up overcharging you for an item that’s not really worth it. [Swirled]
