Welcome to Meal Prep Sunday, where you'll make a single, healthy recipe with serious bodily benefits, whether it makes your skin glow, helps soothe your gut, boosts your immunity, or more! Because it gets boring to eat the same thing every day, you'll do the bulk of the prep on the first day—and every day after that, there will be one small, five-minute-or-less tweak that will transform the leftovers into a new, amazing meal.
The new book Feeding a Family: A Real-Life Plan for Making Dinner Work by Sarah Waldman takes us through the seasons one healthy, family-friendly meal at a time. This dinner in particular is antioxidant- and fiber-rich, perfect for supporting your detoxification systems and promoting healthy, glowing skin.
Black rice is one of the healthiest rice varieties, due in part to all the powerful antioxidants and phytonutrients (think the more intense the color, the higher in health-promoting nutrients). It also contains fiber, iron, and copper along with protein. Together with red lentils, this fiber-packed meal is great for stabilizing blood sugar and heart health and promotes better digestion.
