With today being the end of the week, I decided to treat myself to something a little special for dinner. After my workout, I went across the street to Trader Joe’s to pick up a few items as well as a new find.
I found this little gem in the frozen section, and the image on the front immediately caught my eye, so I decided to toss it into my cart. I am so glad that I did because it was delicious! I have to admit, I didn’t have super high expectations for this frozen soup, but I was totally wrong. I find that most soups sparse on everything except the broth, but this was not the case here.
I rounded out my meal with a side of Brown Rice California Rolls.Eaten, of course, with chopsticks. I swear, they make sushi taste better!
Why Would Jessica Eat This?: One cup of brown rice provides almost 90% of your daily Manganese requirement, an important mineral involved in forming connective tissue, bones, blood clotting factor and sex hormones. It also plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption and blood sugar regulation. What a prefect reason to eat sushi! As if you really needed one….
Yay for four day weekends!
