Another What I eat in a day back by popular demand!
This is my usual summer eating habits that give me enough energy and nutrients to battle the day 🙂 in winter time I usually eat more and heavier foods to keep the energy going. This is what works for ME and I’m sharing this to inspire you and give you a glimpse of my diet. Please remember that every body is different and there are so many factors to figure out what your body needs: activity levels, seasons, body frame, any health goals or restrictions.
I always talk about how probiotics are an important part of your diet if it from supplement or food source (kefir, saurkraut, kambucha).
If you want to use it for maintenance start with 5-10billion count and if you battle with any of the mentioned symptoms take the 25-50billion count.

Rice & beans bowl dinner:
1 tablespoon avocado oil
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
1 cup brown rice
2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon cumin
15 ounces canned seasoned black beans, drained and rinsed
sea salt and pepper, to taste
I made my brown rice in the chicken broth separately but here’s another version for a one pot recipe.
In a medium saucepan, heat avocado oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, and sauté 3 minutes, until onion is tender and starting to brown. Add garlic, and sauté one minute longer. Add uncooked rice, and stir and sauté 2 minutes.
Add broth, salt, and cumin. Stir together, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes.
Remove lid, stir in beans, and cover again. Turn off heat, and let stand for 3 minutes before serving. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Top with fresh cut lettuce, guacamole / green goddess dressing!
