.. or simply called poha in India. But made without flattened rice. Why? Because I’d rather go on town on a cake than packing on more carbs from rice.
That’s how we prioritize.
Not that we don’t love rice or bread, but it doesn’t have to be on every menu. Cauliflower is a game changer, my friends. It’s like a fancy sushi, only, healthier for you 🙂
Age is just a number but it also comes with great responsibility. Knowing what you feed your body is very important. Reading nutrition labels and going for regular preventive checkups can help in maintaining a longer and healthier life.
Also, I can’t emphasize enough on the word “moderation”.
