Amazingly Healthy Rice
As you know, I try to pack nutrition into simple meals. Today was no exception.
I used the slow cooker to cook the chicken breast. Added frozen chicken breast, a couple slices of onion, and a little water. I just prefer adding a little water or broth.
Serving of canned beets, plain with nothing added, except black pepper. I wanted about 4 Ritz Crackers instead of bread, so I added those to the plate. LOL
For the rice:
In rice cooker, add
1 cup dry rice
1 1/4 to 1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup water
1/2 T. coconut oil
1 t. curry powder
Then add items below to a FOOD PROCESSOR
1/2 head cauliflower, washed
1/2 yellow squash, washed
1/2 bunch kale, washed
Chop to consistency desired but I finely chopped the mixture
Add this to the rice cooker and cook WITH the rice, juice, water mixture. When done, add seasonings of your choice. Thank you for reading My Food Diary. I do this blog to keep up with what I eat, for medical purposes—my choice.
I see I can’t add this to Pinterest for some reason. I see changes to Tumbler that I am not liking. Or at least showing the photo I want to show on Pinterest.
I can tell you that this is delicious and packed with nutrition.

I combined fruits and veggies for topping. I placed pizza, topping side down on piece of aluminum foil and baked on bottom rack of Nuwave Oven for 5 minutes. Removed, flipped over the pizza, added the fruit, and baked an additional 5 minutes.
I started with a frozen, bought pizza and added additional food of my choice to that. I love that I can start with frozen and have a great pizza in 10 minutes. Fast, easy, and healthy!

Baked fish, eggplant, and potatoes. (All done at same time in NuWave oven. Started with frozen fish) Make a little mini pone of cornbread from batter leftover from previous day. Baked cornbread in a toaster oven. Added slices of tomato for color and because I like them. LOL (Photos are different stages of the baking process, etc.)
I usually only use one rack for a meal but this time I used two. I place an old cake pan under the drip pan and add a little water to the cake pan to catch drippings.
I like quick, easy, simple, and healthy cooking. This meal took just a bit longer since I did coat the sliced of eggplant instead of baking them plain—as the pieces of potato are.
I won’t make “food beautiful” but this blog helps me keep a food diary, for medical reasons and I don’t mind sharing ideas that might help other people that might like to try them. Any of these items can be baked in a conventional oven.
Thanks for reading my blog.

I just couldn’t stand it any longer! LOL I was hungry for watermelon and decided to cut it today. Oh, well—I’ll have plenty for July 4th. LOL
I cut about half the watermelon, removed rind and seed, cut into chunks, and bagged. Doing it that way takes less room in the refrigerator and makes it easier to “nibble”. LOL I filled 2 quart bags with watermelon chunks in addition to the serving I included photo of.
I usually don’t add salt to things but I did sprinkle with salt and pepper (LOL—I like pepper) today. Probably won’t add salt as I nibble though. I didn’t add but a tiny bit to it.
After I eat the two quart bags I prepared, I’ll cut the other half of the watermelon. Watermelon is good to eat on a hot day to help cool off. At least I’ve found that is one of the best things that really helps me. Watermelon is a healthy thing to eat but we need to be aware that it is considered to be a “sweet”. Be aware of that, especially if you are diabetic or if you help prepare meals for someone that is.
Thanks for reading my blog and you are welcome to share it.

Used Nuwave Oven to bake frozen fish with veggies. I baked (fish and veggies are all in one pan) for 10 minutes, turn all over, continue to bake 10 minutes more. Wash lettuce, cucumber, and tomatoes. Tear lettuce, slice or cut cucumber and tomatoes. Toss. Serve.
