Say No to Kraft Carnival

I thought it would be fun to contribute to a meme on http://www.keeperofthehome.org/ on quick and healthy dinners that would keep us from relying on unhealthy convenience food. I do have one that I rely on monthly:

Fried Rice

I just use up leftover rice, add in veggies (always frozen peas, carrots and onions, plus whatever is on hand - broccoli, beans, etc), add whatever leftover meat I have (or I cup up a frozen chicken breast), scramble a few eggs, and pan fry it all in a bit of olive oil. I season with reduced sodium soy sauce, some garlic powder, salt, pepper and some teriyaki sauce.

Easy, Healthy and Delicious!

This is my go to right before vacation because I ALWAYS have the ingredients on hand.

Yes! Great idea! I also make a very similar fried rice, especially for lunches when I have leftover rice. Quick, easy and healthy- and yummy!

Thanks for joining in!
