Brown rice, coconut milk, lime and Cilantro Jalapeno Lime RA seasoning blend combine to make a quick, family friendly side dish in the Instant pot! This will pair well with Slow Cooker Green Chile Shredded Chicken and Crockpot Pork Carnitas. Reminiscent of Chipolte Lime Rice, this dish will be a instant favorite in your meal prep menu.
You could also make this with white rice, but I prefer short grain brown rice for the added fiber and nutrients. I use Cilantro Jalapeno Lime RA seasoning blend to make the prep time easier and the dish more flavorful. If you do not have this spice blend, I would add a couple cloves of minced garlic, lime zest and a minced jalapeno instead.

I wanted to share with you the importance of meal prep and how it has changed my family’s lives. I cannot stress the importance of meal planning for not only weight loss but for creating a sustainable healthy lifestyle. If you are a family with working parents and a busy calendar, meal planning and preparing food ahead of time is critical. Not only do you save money by not eating out, you can feel good about what you are putting in your body.
Meal prepping is not hard, but it does require a time investment. Is ensuring the future health of yourself and family worth giving up a few hours on the weekend?
In the video below, I talk about how meal prep has changed our lives for the better and how we fit it into our schedule. If you want to see more step by step instructions, you can read my blog post, “How to meal prep for busy families.”
I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time getting my kids to eat vegetables. I’m always on the lookout for healthy recipes for veggies that my kids will eat! I found a recipe for crispy sea salt and vinegar cauliflower “popcorn” from Blissful Basil a year or so ago and the whole family loved it. I currently have cut vinegar out of my diet, but wanted to make my own version of this dish. I came up with crispy lemon pepper cauliflower and it was another home run! It’s dairy, gluten and egg free.
This side dish is so easy to make. You just cut up the head of cauliflower and put it in a gallon Ziploc bag. The key is to cut the cauliflower into smaller pieces. You can cut it even smaller than I did in the picture and that results in more crispiness. Add the lemon juice, coconut oil, oat flour and lemon pepper, shake and pop in the oven!
I love chocolate and who doesn’t love donuts? I am also a big fan of FlavorGod seasonings and one of my favorite spice blends is their chocolate donut seasoning. However, when I ran out one day and FlavorGod was out of stock I was in crisis! So I had to take matters into my own hands and make my own Copycat Chocolate Donut Seasoning.
I did my best guess as to the proportions of spices, just going off the ingredients on the back of the bottle. The main ingredient is honey powder, but I wanted to make this seasoning truly sugar free, so I used stevia to sweeten it. My favorite stevia powder is by Trim Healthy Mama. Honestly, I’m a huge fan of all their sugar free sweeteners, so I encourage you to try them out. Their stevia is super concentrated, so you only need a bit and tastes great.
The next ingredient is unsweetened cocoa powder. You can use this, or swap it out like I did for the cacao powder. This...
