I was at a health food store a couple of weeks ago and happened to spot Forbidden Rice in one of the bulk bins. What is it about those bins that makes me want to buy a little of everything I see?

According to legend, only the Emperors of China could partake in such substance to enrich health and longevity (taken straight from the link above).

All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
