How To Make Brown Rice Exciting!

Eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to stick to grilled chicken and lettuce all day every day! And yes, you do in fact need to eat carbohydrates. Your brain literally needs them to function properly. Should you eat processed white carbohydrates. No. Should you eat whole wheat, brown rice type carbs? YES!

You’ll need:

Your choice of carb, be it brown rice, pasta, quinoa, etc.

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 yellow onion

4 medium zucchini

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 cup chopped parsley

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1. The zucchini and onions will take about 20 minutes, so plan for your starch to be ready at the same time. My brown rice takes 35 so I put the rice on first. While you wait, thinly slice the onions and zucchini.

2. When your starch has 20 minutes left to cook, heat the olive oil in a wok or large skillet and saute the onions until they turn brown, about 8 minutes. Add the zucchini, salt, pepper and cook until golden, or, until the starch is ready!

3. Mix in the starch, fresh chopped parsley and lemon juice!

BOOM. Done. Serve with extra lemon on the side! I like mine super lemony.

This is also absolutely delicious with quinoa. Mmm.

Enjoy!
