Here is a high fiber dinner recipe:

Brown Rice with Vegetables
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
(You can add broccoli, kale, whatever you have on hand. It will take some experimenting to know how much water is required.)

Yield: 2 servings
Calories: 149 per serving
Total fat: 7.4 g
Fiber: 4.5 g
Protein: 3.3 g

Put all these ingredients in the rice cooker and let them do their thing! When all the water is boiled off, your rice and vegetables should be tender and full of flavor. (For more flavor, add an all-natural bouillon cube to the water before turning the rice cooker on.)

Brown rice is an excellent complex carbohydrate, loaded with fiber and healthy energy sugars. By making it in the rice cooker all at once, you spare yourself having to prepare the vegetables separately: they will be perfectly steamed and blended with the rice -- ready to eat!
