Sesame Soy Rice
If you are stuck for mid-week dinner ideas, Sesame Soy Rice is a healthy and quick option to throw together with your choice of protein on the side. You can either pre-cook the rice or buy it already cooked (if you want a really easy quick option like me!) and the vegetables are really quick to chop and prepare.
There is more than 5g fibre per serving!
Loading your plate with whole foods is the perfect way to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. You can mix and match the vegetables to use whatever you have in the fridge and some other good options include zucchini/courgette, mushrooms and peppers.
Key Nutrients – Sesame Soy Rice
Fibre – There is over 5g fibre per serve which is perfect to look after your gut health. This means keeping bowel movements regular and having a variety of different nutrients to look after your gut microbiome.
Magnesium – Brown rice and green veggies are really good sources of magnesium. Magnesium is essential to help support the central nervous system function and plays a key role in producing melatonin, the neurotransmitter required for sleep and also supports stress response.
Vitamin C – With over 50% of the recommended daily intake, vitamin C not only helps to boost our immune function and support stress response, but it is also an essential nutrient to help the production of collagen, which helps to protect against ageing.
