Stir-fry brown rice with seeds

I'm only allowing myself one serving of whole grains per day on the candida cleanse diet. I recently tried a recipe that was so good I'm having a hard time limiting myself to just one serving. It's called Stir-fry Brown Rice with Seeds.

Ingredients:
2 cups of cooked brown rice, cooled
1/2 T. olive oil
4-5 green onion stalks, chopped
1 cup mixed seeds (sunflower, sesame, pumpkin)

Directions:
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onions and seeds and cook until seeds are lightly browned.
Then stir in cooked, cooled rice. Stir fry all until toasty and warm. Makes a delicious side dish or even the centerpiece of breakfast.

I like toasting seeds so they are nice and crunchy and putting them on top of things like salads and rice as well!

They are really good sprinkled on hot cereal, like oatmeal, amaranth or quinoa flakes. My favorite is cooked quinoa flakes, topped with diced kiwi, blueberries and toasted pumpkin seeds.
