Two cups whole grain long brown rice

1 pack of Swanson’s vegetable stock 

1/4 cup salsa

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

8 sweet orange and red bell peppers, diced

Mix all ingredients in a 5 cup to 6 cup non-stick stock pot with lid.

Simmer until all rice grains are tender.

That varies depending on where you live, the pot and have fresh your rice is.

Serve on its own or with steamed broccoli and left over rotisserie chicken like I did.

Polly’s High Vitamin A Amino Acid Smoothie

Both strawberries and spinach are both very good for joint and inflammation problems. Spinach is high in vitamin A and has tons of healthy antioxidants in it. The combination of the strawberries with the spinach go well together. 

This smoothie is going to be green but it will taste like strawberries and be slightly sweet, thanks to the 1 tablespoon of Torani sugar-free syrup that is sweetened with Splenda. Add more strawberries or other fruit like pineapple or banana if you like.

Each serving made in this way has 192 calories.

I like the West Soy soy milk best because that has the highest concentration of so in it and no additives. Anytime you’re adding soy milk to something you’re getting an extra 390 milligrams of potassium along with it an a fair amount of protein too.
