Caribbean Red Beans and Turmeric Rice

Caribbean Red Beans and Turmeric Rice recipe served in a bowl.

This Caribbean Red Beans and Turmeric Rice is comfort food meets tropical island flavor! It’s easy to make, flavor-packed, and full of nutrients and plant-protein.

Couldn’t think of a better recipe to post from sea than this delicious bowl of tropical island goodness! 😍 Flavorful and filling, this recipe is very hearty but perfect for summer with the bright and bold flavors. 😋

I touched on this yesterday, but one of my 🌟FAVORITE SIMPLE TIPS🌟 to look and feel your absolute BEST is to fill half of your plate with fresh greens. This can be any green you love: massaged kale, shredded iceberg, chopped romaine, spring greens, arugula, and more! 🥬

Why is this such an amazing tip?

🌟 Greens are extremely FILLING but have a LOW CALORIC DENSITY
🌟 They add a delicious BRIGHTNESS and contrast in texture
🌟 They LIGHTEN UP any meal by CUTTING YOUR CARBS in half
🌟 They IMPROVE DIGESTION and REDUCE BLOATING – helloOoOo FLAT TUMMY
🌟 They are incredibly NUTRIENT RICH and full of ANTIOXIDANTS
