Are you also eating too much rice?

Most of us eat rice as our everyday meal. How much is enough rice for you? As I am blogging this I am just done eating my dinner (below) and I am just done cooking brown rice and currently cooking white rice.  Lol, we cooked two kind of rice, brown for Pookie bear and white for me. We just interchange our skin color,.

Back to my question how big is rice in your plate? Lately I have noticed I frequently cooked rice so I have asked Pookie bear to lie low from eating my white rice because he also eat white rice especially after gym. When he saw my plate, he told me I am the one who is eating too much because he just ate 295 grams of rice for two meal. I was embarrassed upon seeing my plate its a normal size for me but the way I look at it it is for two people. It looks like the mult-vitamin from the hello kitty case is effective, I am having a strong appetite just like the first time I take Pookie bear vitamins when I first arrived here in Korea. I have stopped it when I noticed I always feel hungry and I eat a lot and gained a lot of weight.

Chicken Kimchi Stew

So I think I have to stop taking that tablet I am already depressed with my weight and I am now adding more fats to me.  Hu-hu

Anyway if you still don’t know rice is a good source of complex carbohydrates and acts as a good source of protein alternatives for meat in a vegetarian diet. It says the increase in rice decreases the intake of meat in the Asian diet. Well I think not to me because I am the only one eating meat here on weekdays.

I have cooked Chicken Kimchi Stew today and as expected Pookie bear ate it and used the soup on his fried white eggs.

Chicken Kimchi Stew

As what I have said before I love experimenting with food, these past few days I have been tired eating adobo, chicken or pork. I want to try another dish and we have nothing here but kimchi so I tried to cook chicken and kimchi the other day and the result was great. I’m loving it!

Chicken Kimchi Stew

Pookie bear says it doesn’t look good, so I told him to try it because it tasted good but he won’t do it because he said he is on a diet. After few hours I found two chicken bones in the sink  and then my food container is almost empty, well your guess is right as mine Pookie bear cannot resist the temptation so I told him about his diet he just said he will ate small amount in the evening than the usual amount, he is  also using the soup to his scrambled egg. So as of today I have cooked another chicken kimchi stew and someone’s gonna drool over it. Lol!

My ingredients:

Chicken, Kimchi, Salt, Black pepper, Oil, Onion, Garlic, Water


  • In a  sauce pan or in a pot sauté garlic and onions on cooking oil.
