Greek Tomato & Rice Recipe (Ntomatorizo)

Hello!! πŸ™‚Β  Ok, so I wasn’t really sure what to post today because I had so many different recipes in mind but not many ingredients in the fridge.Β  Buttttt I did have some tomatoes and rice on hand and made this simple, seriously simple and fast dish for lunch.Β  If you have never come across this type of recipe for rice you should absolutely try it out.

My diet plan for lunch today was boiled chicken again πŸ™ but I have been eating chicken broiled, boiled, roasted, for almost the past 2 weeks, so enough with the chicken and on to something a bit more tastier.Β  I cheat on my diet when the weekend comes around, buttt when I mean cheating no junk food!! but food with a bit more taste and so this rice and tomato dish at least to me will seem like I will be eating a slice of pizzaaaa..:)Β  Yumm Yummmy

    So I totally made a healthy version of this and it was the BOMB. I served it with grilled chicken breast as a side. I replaced the feta topping with light sour cream, took out the sugar, and used low-sodium tomato and spices. Thank you for the idea!!

    πŸ™‚ How are you feeling?

    I’m going to a chiropractor, she is also using acupuncture. The numbness in my arm is a bit better. My shoulder blade has been sore a bit more the last two weeks. I hope it will get better some day.😊

    It does take time but I am sure you will..I did and that was from being hit by a car.
