Asian pork and veggie rice balls

Don’t these Asian pork and veggie rice balls look fantastic? 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Rose Di Loreto shared this great photo on the Healthy Mummy Food Lovers Facebook group.

These Asian inspired rice balls are a great savoury snack that can be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for up to two months.

Just grab 2-3 balls per person and reheat when you want a quick and delicious protein filled snack.
