Rice is a staple dish eaten in Nigeria and all over the World. Rice is not a native to any Ethnic Group or the other, but it is commonly eaten by all. Roughly about 70% of persons in the Continent consume Rice daily. It is usually paired with Stews, Sauces, Salads, Soups, Beans or even cooked as Jollof, Fried rice, Vegetable rice, Coconut rice and so on. It is a source of Carbonhydrates and highly nutritious.
Instead of the regular Rice consumption, there is a more healthy alternative which is not just a Carbonhydrate, but a balanced diet. Don't just eat Rice all the time, eat Quinoa too.
