Broccoli Pork Fried Rice

posted in: Recipes 0

You probably would think stir fry when you’re looking for a healthy meal, but this one checks a lot of boxes. You’ve got brown rice, broccoli and a little protein to round it out. I like adding the pork because while it does add a small amount of fat, it adds flavor. It’s a quick meal to put together which is another huge plus for me. This would be a great option to cook ahead for weekday lunches.
