INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Eating healthier is not that hard. You just need to break free from your perceptions. You are conditioned to expect the predicable meat, potato, overcooked vegetable dinner template.
Are you overweight, have diabetes, heart disease or cancer? Perhaps it’s time for a change.
As Hoosiers embark on their journey into health, they’re discovering the beautiful simplicity of eating healthy, one dish meals. Instead of the predictable meat and potato dinner, try a healing bowl of wholesome goodness with brown rice, fresh summer vegetables, nuts, fruit and healing coconut oil.
1 zucchini, cubed
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup chopped broccoli
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
3 tbs. virgin coconut oil
½ cup dried fruit, chopped
½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
2 cups of cooked brown rice
Slivered almonds for garnish
Green onions, chopped for garnish
¼ cup slivered basil leaves
4 cups fresh arugula
2 tbs. unsweetened coconut
• Prep all the veggies, fruit, jalapeno and sun-dried tomatoes.
• Heat the coconut oil over medium heat and add the vegetables, nuts, and dried fruit.
• Stir-fry very briefly. Do not let veggies get soft and mushy. No more than 1 minute, stirring constantly. You want crispiness.
• Add the brown rice, season with salt and pepper.
• Dispense equally into 2 to 3 bowls lined with arugula leaves; garnish with almonds, basil, coconut flakes and green onions.
• Bon appetite!
