Mix up your whole grains!

One of my favorite pantry staples is a blend of brown jasmine rice, farro wheat, and red quinoa! You can mix it up with any flavors you enjoy, and voila, you have a filling and scrumptious meal!

I simply sautéed a few shrimp, added a little broccoli, the cooked grains (cooking grains in bulk is a time saver!), and topped it off with: fresh avocado slices, lemon wedges, a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, and mixed greens for extra nutrients!

*Season to your liking; here are a few suggestions that are better for you than excess salt: 

  • Red pepper flakes
  • Roasted garlic
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Fresh herbs
  • Citrus juices- lemons, limes, and oranges are my personal favorites!
