Healthy Fast and Good
I really like foods that taste really great, but are simple to make. To often we opt for easy and don't get the flavor and experience we should have. I don't think we should sacrifice taste for ease. We can have the best of both worlds.
Foods should excite the taste buds and the imagination. In today's busy world I am really tired of mediocre foods that are not worth the effort to eat. With little effort, we can have really great foods.
I love using grains, surprise, they are so good for you and they taste really great. Grains fill the stomach and add much needed fiber to our diets. Fiber is essential for health and wellness. Fiber keeps things moving in our bodies and aids the body is eliminating fats and toxins. Grains also add minerals, vitamins, good oils, protein, and variety to your diet.
One of my favorite things to do is to cook up a pot of grains and chill them down in the refrigerator for later use. I can take the grain that has already been cooked and quickly make a really great meal. From breakfast to dinner I can create amazing high fiber, great tasting foods that keep the body strong and fit.
This recipe is so simple, but oh so good.
