Well, after about 2 weeks of not cooking much due to lots going on, I finally was able to plan some meals this week. I’m also trying too to stick to a healthier diet and this recipe fit the bill. Without the rice, each serving is about 295 calories- the rice adds another 200 more. So for under 500 you can have a complete and pretty filling meal.

I just love lemons too as it gives it a nice fresh flavor and the broccoli was some of the best we have had lately. The DIY guy also liked it and he went back for seconds…so his calorie count is a little higher 🙂 But I don’t think is watching as closely as I am!
