My first orientation week at work is now over so starting tomorrow I will need to buy or bring my own lunch. I would like to save money so I will be doing meal prep. I found a healthy recipe on eating well website.
The recipe is really simple and easy to follow. The nutrition facts were also provided on the website which I really liked. The recipe is for 4 servings but added 1 more to complete 5 servings. I made some changes to the recipe. I did not put mayonnaise, pine nuts or fresh parsley to garnish in mine. I also squeezed some lemon juice while cooking my green beans instead of zest. I also did not get pre-cooked brown rice. I had some brown rice and cooked it separately. I did not sautee with the green beans. I usually end up altering some of the recipes I find to my liking. That is the fun part of cooking!
