Perfect recipe for the heathy. Buckwheat replaces rice and is an excellent complex carb which makes you full and a much better substitute for rice. Basically buck wheat will slow down the inulin release and keep your stomach fuller longer and it combines well with the protein. Toss in some mixed boiled vegetables to make a meal by itself.
