Other types of greens

Any of your favorite beans

Olives

Guacamole

Vegan sour cream

Fresh peppers sweet or hot

For a Greek twist:

 

Quinoa

Olives

Spinach

Avocado

Either a Greek dressing or I love a balsamic vinaigrette.

 

The best thing is there are no rules, have fun with it!

 

Cilantro lime rice

 

Cook 2 cups of brown rice according to directions. Cook in vegetable broth.

Add the juice of half of a lime and if needed adjust to your liking.

Add ¼ to ½ cup of fresh cilantro.

I love cilantro so I would start small, taste, and continue to add if needed.

 

That is it, super easy. Cook some brown rice and quinoa at the beginning of the week to use for dinners and lunch to make your preparation time lightning fast!
