The healthy meals are all lined up in the fridge/freezer and I am set to rock and roll for my first day back at the office (even if it takes a bit of self-motivation to get me there). One of my go-to meals during my crazy busy weeks is this delicious Greens + Grains dish that Ben and I like to make often. With all of its complex carbohydrates, fiber, and nutrients, I eat it as one of my five small meals a day—typically before teaching kickboxing—and have tons of energy to last me through class!
All you need is Kashi’s 7 whole grain pilaf, veggie/chicken broth, and broccoli!
Grains + Greens
- 1 packet Kashi whole grain pilaf
- ~2 c broth [we use low-sodium vegetable broth]
- 1 small head of broccoli
Prepare pilaf as directed.
In the meantime, chop broccoli into small pieces.
When about 3/4 of the broth is absorbed, place broccoli into the pot and cook, covered, until the broccoli is tender.
Stir everything together.
Enjoy! Makes 4 servings.
