Sushi is seen by many as a healthy food anyway, and compared to fast food burgers and the like, it is definitely a better option. But the white rice that is used can spike blood sugar levels and is high in carbs, with no additional nutritional benefits. The healthy sushi below, uses quinoa, which has a lot less grams of carbs and a lot more protein. More bang for your buck as they say somewhere around the world (not In Yorkshire!) So check out these healthy delicious little items and make yourself and your kids a halo inducing meal with a difference! Read More →
As the actually translation of Nasi Goreng means “fried rice’ and no rice has come close to this dish, calling it Nasi Goreng is technically incorrect.

It’s healthy and the tastes are SO vibrant and fresh. What are you waiting for?!!
