MyPlate-inspired: tilapia with corn salsa, wild brown rice and feta-veggies

While this isnt a recipe from the MyPlate challenge, doesnt it look like it should be? Lean protein, whole grains, veggies with fat-free dairy.

After grilling the tilapia, I topped it with a pre-made corn, tomato and onion salsa. Then, I microwaved a wild brown rice pouch and sauteed green beans, zucchini and summer squash in a little olive oil and ground black pepper. Because a sprinkling of fat-free Feta cheese lends a salty taste, I didnt need to add salt to the sauteed veggies. Tasty, nutritious and quick… three of my favorite characteristics of a weekday meal!
