Burnt Garlic Fried Rice Japanese Style
The brilliant part of flexible eating is that you can eat anything. Like this isn't a cheat meal. On my programs it's a fancier rice. Which is fine. While it's not a meal on its own, it's perfectly okay to eat even while trying to lose weight !!
The power of flexible eating !!

Rice : cold leftover rice works well here too. If you have a local rice like red rice, you can use that too to get a better and more chewy type texture.
