Going Veggie - Quick "Fried" Rice

This is something I just came up with yesterday. In hurry to make it to the gym, I wanted something fast and was tired of the same 'ol granola bars and plain hard-boiled eggs.

Brown rice (leftover is great for this - just make sure to heat it through well, otherwise it's rather hard and chewy), hard-boiled egg, any kind of frozen or steamed vegetable (i used peas), and low-sodium soy sauce. No oil or frying involved! :-)

For a single serving:
  • 3/4 brown rice (usually has about 150 calories and 4 grams of protein)
  • 1 hard boiled egg, chopped (70 calories and 6 grams of protein)
  • 2/3 c steamed veggies (peas - 70 calories and 5 grams of protein)
  • 1 TBSP low-sodium soy sauce (10-15 calories)
Heat everything through and enjoy! You'll get only 300 calories and 15 grams of protein.
