This sounds like a brag, but I know how to make good fried rice. I learned in college. There are two secrets - take the rice after you cook it and let it get cold in the fridge. Then cook the egg like you're making a fried egg and just before it's done, dump the rice and veg on it and swirl it around.
It is no sin to attempt and fail. The only sin is to not make the attempt.
You don't want to make a steady diet of just lettuce. You don't want to make a steady diet of fried chicken.
