I grew up Pinoy so obviously I LOVE my rice. But I swear, eating white rice really makes me feel so sluggish after. That’s because white rice can make your blood sugar levels go up faster, which is why your energy levels feel so off after you eat it, and why you end up getting hungry so much faster also.
If you’ve been following my blog, you know I like to use cauliflower or adlai as a substitute to rice. Another carb source I discovered: oats. Oats are rich in beta-glucan fiber, which helps lower bad cholesterol and helps control your blood sugar levels. Unlike refined carbs like white rice and white bread, oats won’t give you that crash that can trigger your bingezilla. So there’s need to get hangry, just angry! Lol just kidding. (Nico, if you’re reading this, you can relax.)

For the toppings:
– Green onions, chopped
HOW TO MAKE IT:
1. Put the oats, water, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a pot and cook.
2. In a separate pan, cook the onions, bell peppers, and garlic. Once the veggies are cooked, add your cooked oats in the pan.
