When I decided that I would start to consciously look after myself I didn’t really know where to start. Having slowly evolved from a diet consisting wholly of two-minute noodles and booze it seemed impossible to do all the things I needed to do to be healthy. After a while I realised to do stuff you just have to start from staples and build from there. So I thought back to various things that had been suggested to me by people who I trust who have been on this same quest for longer than myself and began to compile a recipe. I started with brown rice and slowly added more and more ingredients for taste and health benefits until I found something that was healthy, malleable, and fortunately delicious.
Since I concocted this recipe I have been eating variations of this dish almost daily, and I am yet to find myself getting bored of it. When I eat other food I often find myself comparing it to this and wishing I had brought a lunch box. I feel robust. I feel strong and healthy. In our day-to-day lives there are no miracles except for those you allow to happen by putting yourself in the place where they must land, and if you want to be healthy you need to eat healthy. Period.
