Mexican Fiesta Rice: a healthy meal to take a friend. {Giveaway!!}

September 20, 2013

Uncategorized

It’s not always easy to come up with simple, healthy meals that are easy to pack up and take to a friend for dinner.  Healthy Enchiladas are one of my go-to meals, but when your friend is nursing and needs to follow a no allergen diet for her little peanut, you have to switch it up.

This fun + festive rice dish is made of whole grain brown rice.

It’s also

  • dairy free
  • gluten free
  • soy free
  • nut free

    For comfort food, I go with GF mac & cheese of some sort – usually rice/corn pasta baked with brie & artichokes. 🙂

    I like you on FB! I think my favorite dish to make for a friend would be apple pie because who doesn’t love getting a pie?! 🙂
