Healthy Monday: Semi-Homemade Fried Rice (Vegetarian)

Posted Nov 22 2010 7:54am
Studies suggest we are more likely to maintain behaviors begun on Monday throughout the week. That makes Monday the perfect day to make a change for your health and the health of our planet.

I (finally) cooked!

Kind of.


It was semi-homemade fried rice, courtesy of Trader Joe’s frozen section.

Semi-Homemade Vegetarian Fried Rice

  • 1 bag of frozen veggie fried rice from Trader Joe’s (“4 servings” supposedly)
  • 1 bag of frozen vegetables (medley of beans and carrots)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  1. Heat oil in a wok over high heat. Add vegetables. Saute for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Beat eggs in a cup. Add to veggies. Scramble the eggs and veggies for 2-3 minutes, or until the eggs are mostly done.
  3. Add in the rice. Continue to cook for 5 minutes or so, or until the rice is heated through.
  4. Serve!

Delicious. Semi-homemade is the way to go when you don’t have much time or motivation to cook. I got the ingredients for this dish from the new Trader Joe’s on the upper west side. It was a nice ~1.5 mile walk each way. That was my Sunday exercise and it was plenty for me.

Healthy Monday: healthy-ish home cooking (whether it’s semi-homemade or fully homemade – homecooking is probably better than restaurant-made) and lots of walking.

P.S. I added an archives page with some cool javascript action that lets you expand out the archives by month . Check it out if you have a chance. The plugin is called “Clean Archives Reloaded” – just do a search in the “Plugins” section of your WordPress dashboard if you want to install it. I read through some of my old posts which was interesting. Three years ago next month I started my blog. Here is my first post . Apparently I thought we would own a house in California by now. Just goes to show that you can’t do much to plan your life. It just happens and you have to let it unfold.
