Healthy Fried Rice, Jessica Sepel, Healthy Recipes

With just a few simple ingredients you can turn the not-so-healthy traditional fried rice into a superfood-filled complete meal. It has been reported that including more wholegrains into your diet, like brown rice, can considerably lower your risk of heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes! Not to mention, kale and garlic are super high in Vitamin C, which can help keep those pesky winter colds away. Add an egg or top with some organic grilled chicken or salmon for extra protein – yum!
