Eat comfort Food and still be fit!

Who doesn’t love a tasty beans and rice dish with flavor?  I have just the dish for you!  Guess what?  It’s healthy too!  This dish is screaming energy and it has your name on it.  Imagine having only 15 minutes to make a dish that promises hours of happiness.  This dish is high in fiber, great for gluten intolerance people, easy to make for the single person on the run and flavorful enough to take to work.  Have this dish cold the following day without using a microwave to reheat.  This dish won’t break your wallet either and you can still use all organic products.  I eat it this meal at least once, or twice a week.  Try it!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup, or 1 cup of organic white onion chopped

1 tablespoon of organic minced garlic

2-3 cloves of organic whole garlic chopped

2-3 sprays of organic olive oil cooking spray

1 tablespoon of organic butter salted, or unsalted

1/2 cup, or 1 cup of organic long grain brown rice

1/2 cup, or 1 cup of organic low sodium BPA free canned lentils

1/2 cup of organic kale chopped

1/2 cup of organic Italian parsley chopped

1 teaspoon of unrefined sea salt

1/2 of organic fresh lemon squeezed

Method:

Wash and dry all your fresh food first.  Dice up all your garlic, onions, parsley and kale.  Heat skillet on medium to high heat.  Spray skillet with olive oil spray.  Wait for pan to get hot.  Place minced garlic in pan first.  Add in whole chopped garlic cloves and chopped white onion.  Mix all together and lower temperature to medium heat.  Cook for about 5 minutes, or until you see onions turn slightly brown.  Add in already prepared brown rice.  I usually prepare my rice the night before to save time the following day.  If you’re making rice the same day, it will add 15 minutes to your recipe.  Stir rice in pan and add in your butter.  Add in your kale and beans. Add in your parsley and sea salt.  Let all ingredients mix in together for a few minutes on medium heat.  Take lemon and squeeze over top of dish.  Sprinkle sea salt at the end.  Turn off stove and serve in a nice round dish.

Note:  This whole dish should only take 15 minutes.  I like to add veggies and some herbs at the end to maintain as many enzymes as possible. I use a lot of garlic in most of my dishes to prevent bacteria and fungus from building up in my body.  The garlic will help to boost your immune system. If you have thyroid issues, you may substitute the kale and change it to spinach.  You may also replace the beans with an organic meat if you’re unable to have too much fiber.

Purpose of Dish: Helps move bile through the gallbladder, is high in vitamin B, which is great for depression, high in sulfur and magnesium.  Simple and affordable.  Great for lunch, or dinner.  Enjoy!
