Ingredients (refer to picture above)

  • Top Left – Cilantro Lime Brown Rice Quinoa: We used a prepackaged brown rice and quinoa made by a brand called Seeds of Change (available at Costco).  I just heated it on the stove and added some fresh lime juice and cilantro to it.  You can also make your own brown rice or quinoa or combination and add the cilantro, lime juice (2 tsp), sea salt and garlic powder to it.
  • Top Right – Black Beans: Take 1 can black beans, heat in a small sauce pan add some garlic powder, ground cumin (1/4 tsp), ground red chili powder (1/4 tsp) and sea salt
  • Bottom Left – Guacamole (click here to see my recipe)
  • Bottom Right – 4-5 chopped romaine lettuce leaves
  • Center – Fresh Salsa (click here to see my recipe).  We just used Jacks’s Fresh Salsa from Costco since I was pressed for time last night.


  • Take a cereal bowl – Add rice, black beans, guacamole, salsa and then top with romaine lettuce
  • Enjoy!

Guacamole is great on tacos, awesome on a bed of greens as a salad dressing or with corn chips or as a vegetable dip.  It is quick and easy and it tastes amazing.  It is loaded with healthy fats and about 12 grams of fiber per avocado! Keep the seed in the guacamole to prevent it from browning.


  • 2 large avocado
  • 1 clove garlic finely grated or pressed
  • 1/2 a tomato grated (no skin) with a fine grater
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped cilantro to garnish
  • optional – you can add some finely diced red onion and jalapeno pepper


  1. Scoop out flesh of avocado and place in bowl
  2. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and mash with a potato masher
