RECIPE: EASY SUGAR-FREE COCONUT RICE

Is it just me or do Thai restaurants add a serious crapload of sugar to their coconut rice? Don’t get me wrong, it tastes good, but I remember last time we went to our local Thai place, I was already considering going sugar-free and it really brought a new perspective to my coconut rice. “Am…… Continue reading RECIPE: EASY SUGAR-FREE COCONUT RICE
