Fast, Easy and Cheap Macrobiotic Bowls

Macrobiotic is just another fancier word for eating clean, eating real food and avoiding anything processed. To help maintain my whole-foods, unprocessed lifestyle, I always keep my freezer stocked with frozen greens, beans, grains and vegetable rice so that when I'm busy, I can whip up dinner in a zap. 

Also, did you know that frozen veggies actually hold and provide even more nutrient density, vitamins, minerals and fiber than fresh because they are grown and packed at their peak in nature? In addition, frozen veggies can add even more value because they're usually cheaper than buying fresh!

Lastly, here's a cool article on Microwaves to help you decide how you care to zap. "There is no evidence that they can cause harm–and some evidence that they are even better than other cooking methods at preserving nutrients and preventing the ormation of harmful compounds. Still, you shouldn't over heat your food, stand too close to the microwave, or heat anythng in plastic containers unless it's labeled safe for use."–Healthline
