Fried brown rice with snow peas and peanuts
Brown rice is better for you than white. According to a study conducted by the American journal of clinical nutrition, brown rice is the top choice in terms of both nutrition and other inherent healthy benefits. It is rich in selenium, naturally-occurring oil, anti-oxidants, promotes weight loss and is high in manganese.
