When the weather gets warm, all I want to do is eat loads of fresh foods such as summer's fruits and vegetables. With different kinds of "bowls" being all the rage, I decided to create a delicious and healthy bowl to share with all of you.

Customize them with whatever vegetables you prefer or have on hand. If you do not like feta cheese, use blue cheese or mozzarella. I used brown rice in my recipe which is ready in just 10 minutes for a quick meal. I made a simple lemon vinaigrette for this recipe so that you can really taste the awesome flavors of the grilled vegetables.

I am a huge fan of using whole-grains in my recipes. In fact, I rarely buy any grains that are not whole-grains. Whole-grains have more fiber and nutrients than their refined counterparts. They are digested slower and therefore, spike your blood sugar less.

These bowls turned out awesome and I could see them being a summer staple! I would also make them with chicken or make them Mexican-style with black beans, corn and peppers.

For this recipe, I used Minute® Brown Rice. Minute® Rice is non-GMO and gluten-free. I love this brand of rice because it is ready in no time, tastes great and is nutritious. March was National Nutrition Month and of course, as a dietitian, I enjoyed celebrating in different ways. As a dietitian, I would say that my top 3 recommendations to people are to eat more fruits and vegetables, reduce salt and eat mostly whole-grains.

  2. Must remember to pick up some brown rice at Sprouts Farmer Markets since It's on sale for 2 pounds for a dollar--great price and good staple to keep on hand.
