Nutritional values

Compared to the husked version, brown rice scores with a triple amount of calcium (good for strong bones) and a quadruple amount of iron (good for oxygen transport in the body). Eggs, milk and coconut flakes contribute protein.

At cherry time, take 700 grams of fresh sweet cherries, stone them and layer two thirds of them, the rest you puree roughly to the sauce with a hand blender - they don't need to be heated any more.
