Also Include:1/2 cup fruit cocktail, water packed, or fresh cut-up fruit
- 1/2 cup each chopped bok choy, spinach, pepper strips
- 2 oz. fresh mushrooms

Rinse and pat dry vegetables; slice bok choy, mushrooms, and onion; set aside. Mince garlic. Drain tofu and cut into cubes. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-high; sauté tofu until slightly golden, about 3-5 minutes; remove from skillet and reserve. Heat oil in same skillet; add onions, garlic and snow peas, stir-fry for about 4-5 minutes: add bok choy and mushrooms and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes more. Add tofu and teriyaki sauce; stir fry until thoroughly heated; garnish with sliced almonds and serve.
- 2 tbsp. brown rice
Place rice in a small pot with tight-fitting lid and cover with about 2 1/2 times the amount of water (for example if you’re cooking 4 tablespoons of rice, use 10 tablespoons of water…about 3/4 cup water). Bring to a boil, uncovered, on high heat; reduce heat to low, cover tightly and cook for about 40-45 minutes, or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
