Green - leafy greens, broccoli, kale, etc - choose a variety of greens - all have different flavors and nutrient profiles.
Bean - any bean from black or red to chickpeas (baked or raw). Great source of nutrients, protein and fiber.
Grain - rice (white, brown, cauliflower), gluten-free or low carb - lots of choices from a 5 minute grain like couscous to a whole grain like brown rice. Try lentils, millet, farro, bulgur or quinoa for example. Packed with nutrients.
Extras - something fresh like tomatoes, something tangy like pickled onions, something creamy like sauce or hummus.
Batch Cooking - great for meal prepping - store everything in their own containers and enjoy all week.
