You are a Filipino when you eat rice five times a day! Somebody says that to me...I was about to violently counteract that statement (LOL) but I pause for a bit and think about it, then I realized that is really true. In the Philippines, we eat rice in our breakfast, lunch and dinner, right? Now what about in between the merienda or snack time....yes...our merienda usually is biko, puto maya (glutenous rice cooked with coconut milk and some put ginger on it), puto made of rice flour etc. All in all we eat rice all the time and over in the Philippine we remain skinny!!
When I arrived here in the US, I don't eat that much rice but I gained a lot of weight had a hard time losing it thankfully I did with my Slimming coffee ^_^. Here are the pictures of what I had today as my merienda. Above is BIKO top with caramelized shredded coconut then ripe MANGOES. Want some?
