Rice Haul for a Healthy Diet Recipe Video

We Japanese don't simply cook white rice but we add something in addition. There are many different kinds of rice products in Japan. In this video, I will show you what I love to add in my rice daily with a quick tutorial :D The first rice product is the cereal rice. We call it zakkokumai (雑穀米). It's a package with many different types of cereals. zakkokumai is high in fiber and very colorful :D Then another product I love to add in my rice is Mannanhikari (マンナンヒカリ). It is a rice shaped konjac food. By cooking the rice with Mannanhikari, you can save calories (up to 33%)! This product is also high in fiber!!!
