One Pot Chicken and Brown Rice

I've had a really hard time cooking (or being around food in general) the past few months. I've started cooking for my family again here and there, but I'm still craving pretty mild foods. So I'm making this tonight.

It actually smells good to me. and the brown rice is perfect because my midwife has instructed me to eat lots of iron rich foods since my blood work revealed that I'm anemic. Find the recipe for this easy to make meal here.

I'm so sorry that food is so difficult for your right now.

I can relate to the anemic part, I'm in the same boat, and am constantly finding ways to incorporate more iron food into my diet. Be sure to eat something that has vitamin C in it or drink a 1/2 glass of OJ during your meal when you eat foods high in iron. vitamin C helps your body absorb 9 times more of the iron! I have some vitamin C chewables, and eat one right before my meal. This only applies to the non-heme iron, the type of iron from non-meat foods, such as brown rice, spinach, etc.

Aside from healthy and comforting, that one pot meal looks super simple, which can be nice when you're not enjoying cooking ;o)

I hope you begin to get your appetite back soon!
