Lately I've been cooking for myself, something I regret not doing more of since my move back home a few years ago. Plus now that I've been trying to eat healthier and avoid fast food, it has become more of a necessity.
This week I went grocery shopping and my diet has mostly consisted of the following combination...
-whole wheat brown rice (steamed with 1tbsp butter and a dash of salt, I usually make a cup of uncooked rice so there is more for a later time)
-fresh yellow bell pepper (diced and steamed in rice cooker)
-reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese (just a sprinkle)
-an occasional 1-2 tbsp of low-fat sour cream
-sometimes I enjoy adding some diced up cooked chicken breast
-sometimes I wrap the mix in a whole wheat tortilla
My parents love how it smells when the bell pepper and rice is cooking in my rice cooker, yummy. So next time I go to the grocery store I hope to create a new combination of healthy/healthier food :)
