Optimized for Great Health and Weight Loss

Only whole natural plant foods with a little bit of coconut milk, perfect for your health and lean body.

No oil is used to keep the calories in the healthy ~500 cal/lbs range.

The brown rice is full of nutrition and fiber, unlike the common white refined rice. Great source of phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin B1, vitamin B3, selenium, vitamin B6, and manganese.

The mushrooms are one of the most powerful immune system booster and cancer-protective foods.

The beans and peas are also rich in super healthy, natural protein and complex complex starch to keep your body strong and maintain a good microbiome. Rich in zinc, copper, and magnesium as well.

Together with corn, these foods also contain complex carbohydrates – the best source of energy for the body. Slow to digest, they keep you full and prevent overeating.

Then there is garlic – a superfood, rich in antioxidants, organosulfurs and flavonoids! It detoxifies your system, prevents cancers and protects your tissues to keep you younger and trim.

Last but not least, we have added whole sesame seeds to supply the super important Omega-3 fats that protect your brain and reduce inflammation.

  5. Meanwhile throw the sliced mushrooms in a heated pan for 5-8 minutes. Add pressed garlic and a pinch of salt.

Notes

Soaked lentils are cooked faster then brown rice, so you can add them 15 min before it is ready to avoid overcooking.
