    I’ve always liked the nutty taste & texture of brown rice to begin with — but yay!

    As for tapas — I think it’s a double-edged sword. Smaller portions are definitely better, but it’s also rather easy to get carried away order too many plates (especially since tapas are often eaten in a group setting, and with all the socializing it can be hard to keep track of those servings.)
