Cauliflower Rice vs. Regular Rice Calories

Craving Rice but Trying to Lose Weight? This Tasty Swap Will Save You Tons of Calories

It can feel like every calorie counts if you're trying to lose weight. When you're craving a bowl of rice with your dinner but you don't want to go overboard with how many carbs you consume in the evening, Rachel Paul, RD, also known as collegenutrionist on Instagram, has got you covered.

"I LOVE switching out starchy carbs for non-starchy veggies. Look at the benefits!!" she wrote in the caption. One cup of regular rice is 230 calories, but the same amount of cauliflower rice is only 40 calories. Wow — that saves you almost 200 calories!

This is a great swap to make if you don't want to give up the comfort of rice, and it especially comes in handy when you're making a dinner that goes well with rice on the side, like an Asian stir-fry. Give it a try and see how you like it!
