Healthy Rice Paradise


The thought of eating balls of rice somehow reminds me of the old trick to do when you’ve accidentally swallowed on a bone. (Sorry if that sounded random but it makes perfect sense to me!).

QQ Rice offers big (triangle or oval-shaped) balls of rice, with 5 fillings of your choice. And yes, there’s a range of healthy rice to choose from. Think of it as Subway meets Health Foods Shop.

While there were interesting fillings such as salmon floss and spicy shrimp, the Flexitarian in me suddenly went a bit extreme and opted for a purely vegetarian option to go with the multi-grain and purple rice combination. What was I thinking?? This was actually going to be my lunch!

But somehow I survived the afternoon with the cucumber + cherry tomato + broccoli + mushroom + emperor’s veggie (???) mix.

I think the key to enjoying a vegetarian diet would be knowing how to get that right combination of vegetables that is both tasty and filling. And you’ll only know that when you try it out. Trial and error, so to speak.

And if you happen to err, no problem. At the very least, you gave yourself a dose of vitamins and minerals for the day. Alhamdulillah 🙂
