Hi everyone! New here! I'm  not making this for this week, but I previously made this meal in the past, I thougth I'd like to start off sharing something in here already. :) No meal plan for tonight, since I'm actuelly trying to bribe my husband to go to ihop. I know bad.
 These mushrooms are my  husband's fave, so I thought I'd find a recipe that incorporated them.

 4 servings

Ingredients:

 
~ 1/2 cup long grain brown rice or brown basmati rice
~ 1 cup water
~ 1/2 med. red bell pepper diced
~ 8 shiitake mushrooms - stems removed and diced
~ 1 cup chopped green onions
~ 1/2 cup crushed canned pineapple - drained

Directions:

 
Bring water to a boil. Add brown rice, bring to a boil again, then cover and reduce heat to low simmer. Cook rice for 45mins or until water is absorbed. (or whatever the directions are on your rice)

 While rice is cooking, saute' red pepper and shiitake mushrooms in a non-stick skillet for 3mins. Add green onions and pineapple. Continue to saute' for one more min.

 Then put vegetables on top of rice.

I haven't been to Whole Foods yet. I've never lived anywhere near one before. It's where I'm going for my next grocery trip.

aw yay, i like it because the produce is the same pretty much as what it would be in the reg. grocery store but its organic, cos i cant normally afford all organic. plus it has stuff i cant find in the store and more natural items, and a whole natural care body section, shampoo's makeup, toothpaste, they sell the diva cup there lol, um oils, ect, organic meat but i dont know how much that costs, n everyones uber friendly and they have an awsome salad bar

I'm so excited about going there! I've been hitting Central Market and Sun Harvest. Of course our commisary has a decent selection of organic food too.

aw hea i remember the commisary. i hated that place tho, it was to chaotic, but then again i dunno if they are alll ike that? cos i was by one of the largest navel bases. but i hated going there, exspecially around payday! Eek!*
i cant wait till all of our farmers markets open back up, but its snowing again, so of course its to cold now. and i like how almost everything there labels where it comes from ect. same with trader joe's but whole foods is nicer and larger, and less exspensive in some cases, except trader joe's has the cheapest rice milk
