Last night I was craving fried rice, but two problems faced me.
Number One – we were out of rice.
Number Two – rice is not diet friendly for me, or my love handles.
Opening up my cupboards, I found a new box of quinoa. Our family is regularly replacing white rice with quinoa for health benefit reasons. It has more protein and nutrients and our entire household is working out and trying to get summer swimsuit ready.
I just substituted the quinoa in place of the rice and the result was pretty darn good. We’ll be doing this often.
