'Gumba' Yourself Skinny

Have I got a treat for you! It's probably my easiest and tastiest recipe to date. You'll have TONS of leftovers, or maybe not- it's that good. But if you're like me, this will probably get you through 4 days eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

I'm calling this Gumba, not Gumbo, because it's not a traditional gumbo recipe, it's my healthy take on it, and it's also just a little bit different. Also, I'm just studying for my Spanish class, and replacing an 'o' with an 'a' to make something feminine just seemed appropriate. 

Not that is meal lacks masculinity. I bet if you fed this to your man, he would go out back and chop fire wood for the heating stove in the log cabin that you don't have. He would go build you a car from parts he found in a junk yard. He would go to the forest to chop down the tallest tree he could find, just to use a branch of it as next year's Christmas tree. He will forge you a wedding ring, then mine the diamonds, cut and polish them himself. He'll have to shave five times a day because of this overdose of masculinity. Ok, that last one is kind of gross, but you get the point.

Brit's 'Gumba'

What you'll need:
1 chicken breast
1 large carrot
1 large zucchini
1 can black beans
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
Chicken bouillon
1/2 medium white onion
Tony's creole seasoning
Lawry's seasoning salt

Chop up the chicken, onion, zucchini, and carrots to bite size pieces. You want them kinda big, this is a hearty meal. Start your water to boil for the rice. Coat your chicken in some Lawry's and send it a-cooking. Once the rice is done, add some bouillon. Then add the veggies. Add the chicken, let it cook for a bit. Add the canned goods, raise the temperature. Add some Tony's and more Lawry's, depending on the amount of kick you want. 

So, I didn't do a calorie count on this, but it's chicken and vegetables and rice. It's gluten free! But seriously, there aren't too many carbs, but there are awesome amounts of protein. Yum!

Additional note: I use 'Better than Bouillon' because it's gluten-free. I don't think regular bouillon is.
