2
medium green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces (1/4 cup)
1
lb boneless center-cut pork loin, cut in half lengthwise, then thinly sliced crosswise

Betty Tip:
Using brown rice instead of white rice adds about five times the amount of fiber to your diet because the bran is not milled away during processing--it's a great way to up your daily fiber.
