Scallops and Pork Medley Fried Brown Pineapple Rice


A salad is basically a mix of greens, proteins, fruits, sauce and other various ingredient combinations. Now a warm salad is this same base combination with hot elements to it. So when i was thinking of doing a post that is like a salad but not a salad in itself, fried rice naturally came to mind. It’s a mixture of different ingredients, usually coated perfectly in juices and relies on perfect proportion to achieve the desired flavour profile.

Now, i know by now you all know how i feel about white rice, in fact you won’t see me posting about it often, simply because i think when eaten in excess it’s really not good for you. However, if you really want to eat rice, i suggest you just switch to Brown Rice. It’s a healthier alternative, is less processed and has lots of nutritional benefits. In fact, a lot of Diet/Work Out/Gluten Free books recommend brown rice as a good source of fiber and a complimentary ingredient in your weight goals.

Again, everything in moderation.

In rural countries, we actually encourage people to eat more whole grain, or brown rice, because it is more nutrient rich and can help combat nutritional deficiencies. Which is why I support Dakila’s Eat Brown Rice Campaign.

Furthermore, I prefer brown rice because it actually has flavour. I really am not a fan of bland ingredients; I rather drink water than eat an ingredient that doesn’t taste like much. Brown rice, compared to white rice, can actually be eaten on its own and still carry enough flavour to interest you.

My favourite local brand, which I used for this recipe, Dona Maria Jasponica Brown Rice, is available in all major supermarkets, I got this one in Rustan’s, they also carry the Miponica varietal.

It’s a really simple recipe that’s full of flavour and perfect if you are craving carbs.

Best way too cook this rice: For every 1 cup of uncooked rice, add 2 cups of water and let it stay in the rice cooker for at least 30 minutes. If you are using a pot, bring the mix to a soft boil, reduce and keep a steady temp, cover and wait until its ready, make sure the bottom doesnt burn. (The amount of water can be adjusted to your preference.)

      Good recipes bro. I usually try them with seasons and spices from my native Jamaica. Love from toronto.




I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
