  • 1/2 tsp finely grated orange zest
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 4 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 packet stevia

Nutritional Bonus: Switching from white rice to brown is a great way to up your fiber intake. That’s because many nutrients found in brown rice, such as fiber, B vitamins and iron, are lost during the processing of white rice.

 My mom used to make rice for us when I was a child. It was served hot with milk, sugar and cinnamon, similar to having oatmeal for breakfast, so I can see eating this.
