Short grain brown rice:
I love this grain. You’re eating the whole of the grain, which can help stave off diabetes and heart disease, and the short bit of the name means that it will go sticky when you cook it, making it perfect to mix with some miso paste or olive oil. Add your chicken and some roasted vegetables and you’re good to go!
Here’s another fridge essential that you can prep in the morning before you even start work. Add some extra water to the kettle while you make your breakfast cup of tea and pour this over the couscous. Place a plate over the top and then, after you’ve finished your breakfast, fluff it up, add some olive oil, salt and pepper and it’s ready to go in the fridge for lunch.
You can have this with fish, salad, chicken, add feta, chopped tomatoes and cucumber, even pistachios and sultanas.
