Brain-Dead Food: Curry Rice & Spinach Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 box near east curry rice
1 box frozen spinach
1 can black beans
1 can diced tomatoes (slightly
1 drained)

Recipe Preparation

I might have posted this before, but one of my favorite brain-dead
foods (outside of spaghetti), is to take one box of Near-East Curry
Rice and cook according to directions, without the added fat. While
that is cooking, microwave 1 frozen block of spinach (for some reason
fresh spinach doesn't taste as good to me in this recipe -- and takes
longer unless already de-stemmed and washed). When that is done,
drain and set aside. Nuke 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed,
and 1 can of diced tomatoes (minus some of the juice), mixed together
(generally for about 3 minutes).

When rice is done, mix spinach, rice, beans and tomatoes (generally
in a large bowl). Snarf. Not only does it taste good, but it's
really colorful with the yellow rice, black beans, red tomatoes and
green spinach. Very satisfying. Even my almost-3-yr-old loves it.

Approximate total time: 25-30 minutes (time to cook rice)

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:

* Don't skip meals Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbs are a very efficient source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.

Flavonoid foods
(inlcudes onion, asparagus, soya and thyme)

The large family of compounds known as flavonoids discovered in these types of food are believed to have properties in helping to prevent cancer.
Nutritionalists looking into the properties of flavonoids think that they also have numerous health giving properties, amongst them, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
Most are also good for weight loss, so are ideal for including in your weight loss program.
