Grilled Salmon with Coconut Brown Rice

Two recipes in a single post! Oh em gee! (I don’t think I’ve done this since 2011. >_>) It’s mainly just because I only have a picture of them together, haha. It looks lacking in veggies, but I had a salad with it, so bam! All your necessary food groups! This is part of my attempt to eat healthier food so I can actually be in the weight class I need to be in by June 1st. (I sent in my application several days ago; hope I didn’t miss the deadline and that it gets there on time! ;_; )

I’m sorry that I don’t have any measurements for the salmon recipe. (This tends to happen to all my grilled recipes, since it’s really just a matter of me adding the ingredients into a bag with the meat and then throwing it onto my Foreman grill. I love that thing. :O The coconut brown rice recipe was partially inspired by the coconut rice my friend made for a potluck a couple weeks ago. I adapted the recipe for coconut brown rice from here.
