First things first: This is my 100th post on Rabbit Food For My Bunny Teeth! I cannot even believe it! Seriously? I have 100 recipes & healthy tips on my very own blog?! WOW! I really cannot believe how much my blog has grown and what it is turning into. I cannot thank my readers enough for visiting my blog every day. I love you little bunnies and I cannot wait to see what else is in store for the future of RFFMBT!
Second: Congratulations to my Physique 57 Giveaway winner Sam B! I cannot wait to hear how your complimentary class goes!
Third: Do you ever crave a certain type of food? America, Mexican, Chinese, Indian, etc.?
One of my favorite types of cuisine is Chinese, but sometimes it’s hard to find something tasty without all of the added oil and super salty elements. Ordering steamed veggies isn’t always the most exciting dish…
Today I have a healthy Vegan Chinese inspired lunch/dinner recipe for you! This brilliant bowl is filled with colorful veggies and plant protein to keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours.
Cashew Ginger Rice Bowl
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup shelled edamame
1/2 cup bell pepper
1/2 cup onion
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup spinach
1/4 cup low sodium vegetable broth (I use Pacific)
2 Tbsp chopped cashews
1 tsp low sodium soy sauce or tamari
1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
Cook brown rice to package instructions. In a separate bowl, whisk the vegetable broth, soy sauce, and ginger together and place in a pan over medium heat. Chop the bell pepper, onion, celery, and add into the pan along with the spinach. Cook the vegetables until they absorb most of the cooking liquid and become tender. Add in the unshelled edamame and stir until cooked. Add the cooked brown rice and gently mix into the vegetables. Top with chopped cashews. Serve hot.
Note: You could serve the veggies and cashews on top of the bed of rice or mixed in, whatever you prefer.

Can you start adding calorie count/nutritional information to your blog posts? That would be awesome. Thanks!
CatherineJuly 11, 2012 at 2:22 pm (11 years ago)
Hi DJ! The way that my meals are composed are based on portion and servings so that there is no need for calorie counting. I found that this is the best way for me to eat because I can get very obsessive with counting calories. No points, calories, or carb counting needed, just perfect portions! 🙂
NicoleJuly 11, 2012 at 1:51 pm (11 years ago)
That sounds awesome! I sometimes have issues spicing up my daily edamame lunch (gets a little boring some days). So I will for sure try this soon!
CatherineJuly 11, 2012 at 2:23 pm (11 years ago)
Haha I’m excited for you to try a new edamame dish!
Erin @ erinberriesJuly 11, 2012 at 2:46 pm (11 years ago)
Wow! This is only your 100th post? Your readership must have grown really fast!
CatherineJuly 11, 2012 at 4:25 pm (11 years ago)
Hi Erin! Yes my readership has grown tremendously, I only started blogging less than 4 months ago 🙂 I am so in love with all of my readers! xo
janeneJuly 11, 2012 at 3:12 pm (11 years ago)
this looks fantastic! i love that most of your recipes are single-serving size. i was thinking that water chestnuts would be a great addition to this.
CatherineJuly 11, 2012 at 4:24 pm (11 years ago)
Thanks Janene! I found that single serving recipes are what is missing in cookbooks on the market right now! It can be really overwhelming to look at a recipe that call for 5 lbs of brown rice or something like that haha I love water chestnuts, that would be a great addition to this recipe! xo
JessaJuly 11, 2012 at 5:15 pm (11 years ago)
This ooks amazing, I will have to try this! I would love to see a mexican recipe! It’s my favorite cuisine 🙂
CatherineJuly 11, 2012 at 6:29 pm (11 years ago)
I love Mexican too! Who am I fooling, every kind of food is my favorite haha I have done one mexican recipe so far: Black Bean Fajita Tacos
JessaJuly 11, 2012 at 6:39 pm (11 years ago)

I will def try this only I think I will use Quinoa instead of rice as I am trying to cut back on rice & pasta for the time being. Thanks for sharing x
CatherineJuly 12, 2012 at 4:03 pm (11 years ago)
Quinoa is an excellent alternative, Kerry! xo

I know Catherine isn’t really into counting calories but there is an app that will calculate it for you. My Fitness Pal has a section where you can create a recipe. Add the ingredients and quantities and it will provide a calories total.
CatherineJuly 14, 2012 at 12:09 am (11 years ago)
Thank you so much for sharing the My Fitness Pal calorie calculator with everyone, Jennifer! I know that some readers like to keep track of their calories to stay within specific ranges for their body or different weight loss programs, so this is really helpful for others! xo

I -LOVE- YOUR BLOG!!! So glad I found it! Do you have any suggestions for bring-to-work-friendly lunches? 🙂
CatherineJuly 16, 2012 at 10:23 am (11 years ago)
Thank you so much! I love making salads and parfaits in mason jars to bring to work! You can even make them the night before, store them in the refrigerator, and take them to your office! xo
AmyJuly 16, 2012 at 7:07 pm (11 years ago)
That was really good I added portobellos also! My kids inhaled it! Love your blog, just found it yesterday. I really admire how you shared your story and have a healthy attitude towards food. I got down to 112 in my 20’s and it was too thin. Now I’ve had my last baby and I want to shed pounds the healthy route and your blog is one more tool to help me succeed! Great work!
CatherineJuly 16, 2012 at 11:38 pm (11 years ago)
Hi Amy! I ove the addition of mushrooms, and am glad that your kiddos loved it! Thank you so much for the kind words, it means a lot to me 🙂 I cannot wait to hear about your success shedding the baby weight 🙂 Health & Happiness xo

This was sooo amazing! Everything I have tried so far has been fantastic (minus ond thing which I’m pretty sure was my fault) just wanted to thank you for everything you have done with your blog I know we all appreciate it. Congrats to you in all of your accomplishments
CatherineJuly 25, 2012 at 10:28 am (11 years ago)
Thank you so much for the compliments Melanie, you are so sweet! I am so happy that you found my blog and are loving the recipes! xo
KarenJuly 27, 2012 at 6:11 am (11 years ago)
I made this last night for dinner and I absolutely loved it! My husband, being the Southern Country boy he is, liked it too, but said he would like it even better with Chicken! So, next time right before I add the soybeans, I’ll split it into two – put soybeans in my portion and some baked chicken in his! Seriously though. This was delicious and I will be making it again! Yum yum!
CatherineJuly 27, 2012 at 11:33 am (11 years ago)
YAYYY! That is what I love to hear! xo
Arron HeffnerAugust 4, 2012 at 9:24 pm (11 years ago)
I really love this recipe. Just have to be careful with the edemame these days. Make sure its organic/non GMO. GMO crops are sprayed with pesticides always. I love your page hun, great job!
CatherineAugust 4, 2012 at 10:47 pm (11 years ago)
Thanks for the tip Arron! xo
