WWC - Brown Rice for Dinner: an event announcement

The list goes on and on if I start talking about the health benefits of eating whole grains over the white-stuff. The most notable ofcourse is - the link between the consumption of more dietary fiber and whole grains and a lower incidence of colorectal cancer. It is also scientifically proven that by choosing foods with high-fiber content aid us in reducing and regulating our weight.

To emphasize and celebrate the goodness of our dear wholegrains, specifically, our beloved brown rice, I am guest hosting an event. I encourage (& also challenge) each one of you to swap at least one meal this month with brown rice instead of white rice. You will eat less and feel good about your intake. I promise.

So, are you all ready for taking up this challenge and send in your entries to me? Below are some details that you would want to know. :-).
