It is Monday and because your Sunday rice and stew was so good and you made so much, of course you’ll have it again for breakfast today.

Some tips to guide you:
As with most things in life, balance and moderation are key. Eat rice less frequently.
Eat more brown rice if you have to eat rice. Brown rice is less polished than white rice and so retains a lot more fibre

Limit your portions to one cup of rice per meal. It should only make up about a third of your meal.
