Mexican Rice (Healthy)

We are on the 2nd day of 2013, which means eating healthy, right?  Did you make a resolution to eat better, or lose weight, or exercise more?  I am not big on resolutions, so I didn’t really make any.  I do need to get back on track with eating, but that is always the case after a holiday, no matter what time of year it is.  I also need to get back to exercising.  I hurt my foot on Thanksgiving, and haven’t been able to do much of anything since.  I am hoping I can do some walking, and work back up to running in January.

I am here to help you with those resolutions.  Mexican is one of my favorite types of food, and it can be notoriously bad for you.  But this rice isn’t!  I got it, probably 6 or 7 years ago from a low calorie magazine.  I can not remember where it came from, I have just memorized it and have been making it since.  I honestly can not believe it has taken so long to share it with you.

This rice is full of avocados, which might seem a little strange for rice, but trust me on this one.  I have served this rice to countless people, and everyone raves about it.  I have had to give out this recipes more times than I can remember over the years.  So, just because you are trying to eat better don’t eliminate Mexican from your diet!
