Tonight, I made a stir fry over wild rice. Wild rice has an awesome, nutty flavor in my opinion. Wild rice contains almost twice as much protein as brown rice. It is very rich in antioxidants, containing up to 30 times more than white rice. That’s crazy! Wild rice is a great source of healthy minerals, fiber, and great flavor. I want to start eating it like I eat brown rice. They are both healthy options.

Hi! My name is Chloe Long. I am 12 years old, and I am going into 7th grade. Three summers ago, I was the winner from the state of Montana for the Healthy Kids Lunchtime Challenge. I entered an original recipe called "What You Don't Like Tofu?!" Stir fry. I got to go to a lunch with 53 other winners (from 50 other United States and 4 territories) at the White House. We got to meet Michelle Obama, and she dined with us as well. It was an amazing, unforgettable experience. I have always been into cooking and healthy eating, but this past summer I really got into it. I love to cook meals to my liking, and health is very important to me. Exercising and eating healthy food keeps me feeling great and energized. I decided to start this blog to teach other young kids about the importance in healthy eating, and how fun cooking for yourself, family, and friends can be. I will be posting recipes, pictures, and facts about my meals that I make through out the upcoming school year. It can be hard to have good, healthy meals when you have a busy schedule. I will be giving tips and tricks for packable lunches, energizing breakfasts, and great dinners. With a combination of exercise and awesome food, I hope everyone has a wonderful, healthy school year. Happy cooking! View all posts by Chloe Long
