Rice Cake on the Tourist Trail
I am trying to maintain a website about our hometown in the Philippines and one of the recent articles I just posted is the possibility that Pozorrubio, a small town in Sison may just be in a position to catch a spot on the lucrative tourist trail. A movement seems to be going on to revive traditional ways of making some of the delicacies like the rice cake pictured above. The novelty about these rice cakes is that the raw rice is woven into these baskets then cooked in sugar cane juice as it is caramelized into raw sugar or brown sugar. It's really a fascinating process.
These rice cakes are fat-free but definitely not calories free for you dieters out there. But they sure are delicious! But like any calorie rich food, I believe that you don't have to totally forsake them. I was reading sensa reviews and they even say that those diet pills are not meant to work for long term solution, that healthy eating and exercise are still your best option for keeping weight off. That, and of course moderation.
