For this week I am going to focus on what I have been eating during the days we fast.
For breakfast, post-workout, I have my usual oatmeal with a scoop of peanut butter, I have been subbing the regular milk for almond milk. The same goes with milk in my coffee.
Lunch is usually a salad with lots of veggies, this one had a side of sweet potato and broccoli. I also had some shrimp.
For dinner, we had a staple in Nick’s home, Spinach & Rice. It is super easy and fast, and if you workout at night, it is an awesome post-workout meal!
2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1 medium yellow onion
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1 large box (I used Olivia Organics) of fresh spinach
1 cup of rice
Chop onion and garlic and saute in olive oil in a large pot until the onion is translucent.
Add Spinach, I usually put half of the box in and let it cook down a little and then add the other half.
Add the can of tomato sauce and then one and half cans of water to the pot.
Let the mixture come to a boil then bring the heat to low.
Add a cup of rice. Cover and let it cook for 30 minutes. I usually end up letting it cook for closer to 25 minutes but that’s because of how my stove cooks. You want the rice to be cooked completely.
Serve with a slice of fresh french bread to soak up the extra tomato sauce!
Make sure you use fresh spinach, because frozen spinach will add too much liquid to the mixture and fresh tastes better!
You can half the recipe if you want to use a smaller box of spinach. You could also substitute the grain if you prefer.
Have you ever had spinach and rice, or something like it?
