1) Put the green beans in a small microwavable dish with lid and microwave for 1min (or however long it takes to make them look cooked)
2) If using frozen corn, use another microwavable dish with lid to steam them until done (same method as in 1)
3) Add the rice and beans in a bowl (the corn too if it's canned), and heat in the microwave for 1 min (or however long it takes to warm it in your microwave)
4) Add the green beans and mix.

Review of Whole O's Cereal

One of they key components of my diet is the complete lack of refined sugar.
My experience has taught me that finding regular cereal without sugar is almost impossible.
So I was glad to find this cereal for more or less the same price as regular cereal (such as multi grain cheerios).

The multi-grain cheerios doesn't have refined sugar either, but other reason why I avoid it is because it has canola oil (more in that on another post).
Also when I look at the ingredient list for Whole O's, it is simple and without chemical words.

This Whole O's has become my "go to" cold cereal. I buy it whenever it is on sale. I love it because it's sweet but not too much (I think its because of the natural sugar).
I highly recommend it.

Update on January 2016: since I wrote this review (in February of 2015), this product has changed the ingredients list and now contains refined sugar. So I do not recommend it anymore. See the full re-review here.
