Chicken, veggies, and rice
Why pay to eat a rice bowl when you can whip it up in your kitchen? To put together this dish, cook your rice, steam your favorite vegetables, and add a protein of your choice to it. You could also add steak, chicken, or even grilled tofu. Sprinkle with a dash of cumin and parsley.

Tofu lettuce wraps
