First things first. Before you watch this video, you need to know a little something about mochi. If this is the first time you hear this world, know that mochi is a Japanese sticky rice cake. It’s made from sweet rice and used in both savory and sweet dishes. The video below shows mochi making at its finest. This store is famous for their dramatic mochi pounding, and it’s easy to see way. I can’t imagine how much effort goes into making the delicious rice treat, but from where I’m standing, it sure looks like an efficient workout. Who knew it’s actually possible to lose weight in the kitchen, right?
