Been on this garlic fried rice with eggs over easy past few weeks. It's part of a traditional Filipino breakfast. This would be an example of what I eat in the pre-training meal section outlined in my diet. Here's how easy it is to make.


  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 2 cups of 1-2 day old cooked rice
  • 3 tbsp. of vegetable oil (or cooking oil of your choice)
  • salt to taste


Heat up your wok or pan on medium. Once it's hot, add the vegetable oil and heat it up for a few seconds or until the oil gets pretty thin. Add all of the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds or until you can see it start to brown on the edges just a little, don't overcook it.

Add all the rice and mix it together with the oil and garlic breaking up any rice clumps you can along the way. Add salt to taste. I usually just run the salt shaker across the whole mixture once really fast.

Let the mixture sit in the wok for about 30 seconds then mix it up to avoid burning the bottom. Repeat until you get a nice mix of crispy and soft rice.

I always eat this with eggs over easy and mix some of the yolk with the rice. Tastes awesome. I also have some more protein on the side like yogurt, cottage cheese and 2 cups of milk or a scoop of protein powder. Filipino Longaniza sausages is the best to have with the eggs and garlic fried rice though.

Never been a huge fan of rice, although nutritionally i know its superior. Tried this with a few eggs and have to say i LOVE it. Definitely one of my primary meals.

Haha awesome! Glad you liked it. Rice is definitely always better eating it with something else with liquid to it.
