Although it sounds unconventional, it’s really not much different than if you were eating soaked wheat berries, or even some whole oat groats.

Have you made the switch to brown rice yet?  You should! Here is why:

  • Brown rice has 349% more fiber than white rice
  • 203% more Vitamin E,
  • 185% more Vitamin B6,
  • 219% more magnesium,
  • 19% more protein.

Instant brown rice is just as good as long cooking rice. You can cook brown rice ahead of time and put bags of it in your freezer. Defrost on a busy day and warm it up. It doesn’t have to take lot’s of time.

Just curious what you think of Jasmine rice. Several people lately have told me they don’t eat rice but Jasmine. Is it better for you than white rice?

Mary… sorry. I’m just going through my inbox…. nutrient data for both is almost identical. The only difference is Jasmine rice is stickier than white rice. So, if you like your rice sticky (which I do) Jasmine rice is a good choice. It is not healthier for you though, as far as I know.

This sounds really good, and I prefer brown rice to white taste wise anyway. My family used to eat brown rice several times a week until I read that kids should not have more than 1-2 servings per week and adults should not have more than 2-3 due to the arsenic contained in it. We’ve since opted for barley as an alternative, and I wonder if this would work with that?
