Hearty Mexican Herbal Brown Rice

Started early morning, as usual. Planned a mix of herbs instead of sauces, except for the tomato sauce. Today, lets do it the Mexican way, humming Bob Marley, listening to Spanish acoustic instrumental, and life gets its poetry in El Mariachi style! Poetry I say. Today I want to be like, a rustic day instead of deep, idealistic philosophy. It adds a different hue to the routine. A routine, no more, but another day in my paradise!

Julianne red and yellow bell pepper(1) each

Half small size red cabbage shredded

3 medium sized tomatoes diced
