Now that its Spring time, having a salad at home is a good option for a light lunch. Note this post was written in the pre COVID times when I could get to the Queen Victoria Market. During COVID lockdown you can get all your market essentials delivered.
Brown rice is one of the wholegrains that you could have in a day and canned beans is another. You can cook brown rice either in the microwave or on the stove depending on the brown rice that you buy. Most of the packets of brown rice comes with instructions.
I bought those Organic beans from the market for $1.80. Here they do fill me up and I tried it with brown mushrooms and brown rice as well as chili olive oil.
