Healthy Heavy Breakfast Recipe : Smoothie and Stir Fried Brown Rice

Breakfast is the most important meal because it will decide whether you will be energetic during the day or not. Start it right to get the right job done and start it right with heavy breakfast. This is oppose to eating heavily during later part of the day specially before you sleep. Our mom will tell us that we should eat right and eat your food before going to school or to work. I always eat heavily in the morning growing up eating rice as our staple food. Rice as a grain is very nutritious specially the brown rice. I am sharing with you my recipe for a heavy breakfast with smoothie and stir fried brown rice. I wrote a hub about preparation technique when you want to have a stir fried brown rice -- Stir Fry Brown Rice Preparation Technique. And after eating drink a glass of milk or a glass of a water and smoothie and you are ready for everything during the day. I also wrote a hub on the preparation technique for smoothie here -- Preparing Fresh Fruits for Smoothies : Vegetable and Fruit Smoothies.

Stir fried brown rice

Usually if you have left over at the rice cooker, you can use this brown rice. if you are rushing in the morning, this is the best way to do it to save time.

  • Prepare garlic two cloves
  • onion -- half medium sized cut
  • Two spoonful olive oil or canola oil
  • Two cups brown rice mashed
  • Ingredients of meat choose shrimp the large one, sliced minced chicken breast or pork whichever you prefer
  • You can also put vegetables (carrots and green beans) and if you want tofu - is healthy
  • One egg scrambled, beat the egg and separate it
  • soy sauce

Directions ;

  • Prepare the wok for cooking heat it with live or canola oil. Be careful as the wok is ehated up.
  • Saute the onion garlic with the oil and put the meat ingredients. Cooked for five minutes using medium heat.
  • Set it aside and then get the scrambled egg in the pan
  • Put the soy sauce two table spoonful
  • After the egg is cooked, put the brown rice and cooked for five minutes in a high heat while keep on mixing it.

Served it hot. The trick is to add more ingredients with the rice so that it is considered heavy meal.

      Now I want a smoothie - and stir fried brown rice. I love how when I travel to Asia, Africa and S. America - rice is always included on the breakfast menu - and it keeps you satisfied all day.

      Even when I used to go to my Grandmother's farm in NC as a child - there was rice with all the fixings - real food. That's it - we need real food for breakfast once again.

      Thanks so much for the tasty recipes!
