Feeding America has a Photo A Day Challenge happening for March for  National Nutrition Month. This was what I decided to go with for CHOICE.

It’s just rice. Plain white rice.

Brown rice is better nutritionally. All of us in our family prefer brown rice. It just isn’t in our budget. We could choose to buy brown rice but that choice would mean giving up another food from our shopping list.

I’m ok with white rice. It’s better than no rice at all. There was another time in my life I had rice but I had to make a choice whether or not to pick the bugs out of it or leave them in. Extra protein,right? I chose to pick them out but I’m certain I didn’t catch them all.  At least they were only teeny maggoty things and not one giant, live and wriggling one, like something a Survivor contestant would have to eat. They were cooked. I probably needed the protein, anyway.
