Recipe: The Perfect Protein, Rice and Beans

perfect-protein

Beans and rice, rice and beans. Endorsed by scores of nations worldwide, beans and rice provides a balance of protein and carbs that can hardly be beat (not to mention the combination creates a very thrifty meal). Add some chicken for an extra protein bump and some salsa for flavor, and you have a dinner that’s quick, healthy and delish.

This recipe came to me via the print edition of Clean Eating magazine, which I highly endorse.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup diced chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup prepared brown rice
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans
  • 2 T salsa

Preparation:
Poach the chicken breast in water or broth, or prepare in any way that won’t add an exorbitant amount of fat (for the purposes of this recipe, I chose to throw mine on the Foreman Grill). Drain and mix with rice and beans. Add salsa. Consume and feel virtuous.
