I was happily surprised when I worked out the nutrition on this recipe. The serving size is big and the dish is so filling but there’s still plenty of room to add more veggies or proteins to customize this to be exactly what you want! The trick that makes this rice so delicious is that it’s cooked almost like risotto where instead of boiling it in water, it’s cooking in and absorbing flavorful tomato, onions & garlic! I used my favorite chipotle seasoning (Chorizo blend from Williams Sonoma) blend but you could also just use a packet seasoning or your own mix.

Here’s some other great healthy additions:

  • Vegan: avocado, green beans, peppers/ chilies (fresh or dried), pinto beans, okra, carrots, spinach, kale, even mango or grilled pineapple!
  • Vegetarian: cheddar/ light cheddar, low fat sour cream (or greek yogurt), queso sauce, egg whites/ scrambled eggs, vegetarian “meats”
  • Carnivore: grilled chicken, shrimp, grilled turkey, lean ground meat
  • You could also try wrapping this up in large romaine leaves for fantastic lettuce wraps!

I’m reblogging this again because I want to add that images like this are literally 100% the only reason I feel better about my body. Because when I’m having a shitty body image day, I look in the mirror and I remember that there are people who think bodies like mine are beautiful and lovely and sexy and I give myself permission to love myself even though my body is rarely reflected in mainstream media.

They are all beautiful and sexy as hell.

Today I’m doing this "Lose Yourself" cycling/spin class video and whatever is on my StrongLifts app — even though I may have to lower my weight and work back up since I wasn’t consistent. I’ve done this cycling video before and it is WAY HARD for me! I hope to work up to being able to keep up with the instructor, haha. I like it a lot, though. Her attitude is great.

… and getting ready for the Bikini Series! Today on the TIU schedule is the Itty Bitty Bikini ab workout and I’ll be doing that, too. I’ll probably not do the arm workout on their schedule since I’m doing StrongLifts, but we’ll see how I feel.

I’ve got a vegetarian chickpea & vegetables curry in the slow cooker for dinner tonight. :D

Even though some of the links go directly to the iTunes or Android store, still double check them because most of them are available of both platforms as well as others :)
