If you've been following this blog for a while i'm sure you'll know by now that brown rice is far better than white rice nutritionally. This simply means that compared to white rice, brown rice still has it's nutritional content intact. Unlike white rice which is polished completely to refine thereby destroying over 67% of it's vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and dietary fiber, brown rice is only dehaulled to remove just the outermost layer thereby preserving the main content.

For most Nigerians, eating is a pleasurable experience and you really can’t blame anyone for wanting to eat more than required. The way our foods are organically grown and cooked is guaranteed to give anyone a form of exhilarating pleasure. By piling up tasty meals dense in calories and flavor to nourish the body, the inner mechanism of the human body responds to this in different ways hence the classification below. Here's a reasonable analogy that best explains the reason why.

If you've been to the northern part of Nigeria, the name wara wouldn't be an unfamiliar term to you. It's also not uncommon to find wara sellers, mostly fulani women hawking pots of white wara in street corners. Simply put, wara is locally made cheese which is commonly sold in parts of the country where there's access to fresh milk.

Bleached oil is one of the basic ingredients used in the preparation of meals like Obe ata iru, Ayamase and a host of others. Here's a quick video showing how it's done.• PLEASE BE WARNED! Heating Palmoil above it's smoke point (Bleaching) is a very DANGEROUS process which requires the skills of an expert. NEVER OVERHEAT PALMOIL OR IT WILL "CATCH FIRE" (erupt in flames) which would result in serious BURNS.

Banana oatmeal pancake is a very healthy breakfast meal or snack you can make with mostly natural ingredients and fruits. To sweeten this pancake, i used a combination of banana and honey with no added sugar (at all). You can make this healthy pancake for kids to take to school or health conscious people who are on a diet i.e those who want to lose weight or diabetics. Just in case you didn't know, oatmeal is a great way to add fiber and nutrients to your body first thing in the morning.

Recently, i went for a little field work on a clients farm located somewhere in the heart of Badagry. As a food blogger, i get to do lots of freelance field jobs like this once in a while. He owns this very large farm on acres of land where he breeds lots of stuff such as pigs, cows, goats and grows other edibles like maize, tomatoes, pawpaw, pepper, okra, beans, vegetables e.t.c. As an authentic son of the soil, the most abundant type of leafy vegetable on the farm was shokoyokoto.

Ever heard of chicken pops? This crunchy golden appetizing snack would be a hit pretty soon on the family or party menu...you can take that from me and say dobby told you so :). For this recipe, i seasoned the bite sized chicken pieces with ingredients you could easily find around the house but you can customize yours with whatever seasonings you prefer. The yaji in this gives it that yummy "Nigerianized" flavor we all love. To give the coating a crispier texture, you could use 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of semolina powder instead of 2 cups of flour. I discovered that semolina gives it that extra crunchy feel in the mouth.

Hi Everyone! How's the weekend going? Hope good. So today i've got this tasty happy hour drink for you. This fruity cocktail is really easy to make.It's watermelon season and taking advantage of the abundance of this tasty fruit won't be a bad idea at all. Okay before the cocktail purists have my head for lunch, i know...this isn't your typical martini. But due to popular culture, drinks served in martini glasses these days are comfortably called martinis :D. Moving forward, So i had fun making the water melon stirrers also and it was really easy . I used bamboo skewers for the body and non-edible beads for tip. Hope you enjoy making this as much as i did. Need alcohol free recipes, check out these mock-tail recipes.

When making fried rice, i sometimes feel the need to add pepper and move a little distance away from the norm, skipping a few things and adding a little extras here and there. I've come to a conclusion that when it comes to food, there's really no limit to how it's made. Some may like somethings while others may not. For this recipe which i'm sure you'd love, i skipped adding the traditional liver and used kidney instead. Also, butter was added to the rice which gave it that unique buttery flavor we all love. if i were to start on the health benefits you stand to gain from the lightly cooked veggies, i'd go on and on. I highly recommend trying this recipe for a quick lunch.

Hi everyone! Hope you're gearing up for a nice weekend. Today on street foodie waka we'd be exploring a new place I'm sure you'll love. Not so long ago, i was invited to brunch at RSVP Restaurant and this was hosted by GTBank in preparation for the recent food fair just held alongside several other people and i couldn't help but let you all know how the experience was by doing a review on it since it had a lot to do with food. Eating out, trying new things, seeing and appreciating spaces are one of my favorite things to do away from working
