Sounds good!

Sometimes I'll cook my rice in chicken or vegetable broth instead of water...give it SO much flavor!!

The rice with salsa and cheese sounds really good! I'm going to have that for dinner tonight, thanks Kylar.

Sounds a lot like what I like doing for a side. Brown minute rice with a little salsa and 2% sharp cheddar cheese. Cheesy mexican rice. So good, and actually lower sodium than my normal of adding soy sauce to rice. It makes a good side, but certainly not a meal itself. I'll have 6-8 oz meat, a big veggie serving, and glass of milk with that for a fairly typical dinner.

Hi Jen,

Protein is something I actually need to work on. I noticed on my nutrition tracking I don't seem to be getting enough, but I prefer not to eat meat and I'm having trouble figuring out how to get my daily dose.

Sounds great. I use my left over brown rice by adding diced chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions. Then I add some vinaigrette. I eat it just like a salad, no heating required.

Sounds good, but what do you do for protein? It doesn't seem like it'd have a lot.

Will have to try that.

We eat a good amount of brown rice, and it would be nice to change up the presentation, flavors, etc.

I have found a new favourite "go to" meal. I'd never thought of doing this before, but my friend who has a severe gluten allergy told me to take a cup of brown rice, put a teaspoon of light italian dressing, and a tiny bit of sharp cheddar cheese. Mix it all together so the cheese melts, and it's one of the best things I've ever had!
I pair it with spinach salad and it leaves me full for quite a while.
It's so easy and the calories definitely aren't bad :)
