Nutty Green Rice

Nutty green rice is both delicious AND filling.

Pair this detox approved dish with a detox approved vegetable (such as broccoli, kale, carrots, cauliflower, or cabbage salad) and you will have a well-balanced meal with carbs from the rice, protein from the almonds, fat from the olive oil, and micronutrients from the vegetables. Thanks to our friends at The Institute of Functional Medicine for sharing this recipe!
