Many people love rice but have never liked brown rice, wild rice, or any other healthy rice. Perhaps like many, you’re a texture person and have never liked the firmness or texture. You may have also always had difficulty cooking it to perfection but, if you still want to follow a healthy diet plan, you may be determined to figure it out!
If you’re like many who want to eat a quick and easy way to cook all the healthier types of rice, you can now enjoy all the benefits of healthy rice, maintain your healthy diet plan without the suffering and stress of attempting to make it perfect. Life is good.
Here’s the secret: Cook it just as you would pasta. You don’t need precise measurements, you don’t have to worry about it being too dry or too wet; you don’t have to worry about anything at all.
This is a favorite brand of healthy rice – Organic Harvest Medley Rice Blend – as seen to the left. (You may be able to find it at Costco, but they don’t always carry it.).
Harvest Medley is a blend of Organic Cal/Mati Brown Rice, Organic Wild Rice, Organic Sweet Brown Rice, and Organic Heirloom Red Rice. It’s not only nutritious but its oh so delicious!
Tip: Serve it for breakfast with a nut/ground flaxseed, banana, with milk (whatever your fave is: coconut, almond, 2%, fat-free). This is so much better than a bowl of cereal, and you stay full longer.
Some of you may be concerned that if you boil the rice like pasta, you will be boiling out (or losing) all the nutrients. NO WORRIES, the nutrients are stored in the inner hull of rice (it’s still very healthy for you). You may find you love this rice so much that you’ll want to boil extra, so you can have some handy in the fridge for quick healthy meals.
- Rinse rice
- Fill a pot with COLD WATER (tip: never use HOT tap water to cook or drink. Hot tap water is much more likely to leach the heavy metal from your plumbing pipes, causing lead to go into your body, possibly causing serious damage to your brain, nervous system, kidney, red blood cells.)
- Pour the rice into the water
- Cover the pot
- Bring the water to a boil, lower the heat to simmer
- Cook for 30 minutes
- Drain (just like pasta)
Serve and enjoy. It’s that simple. Give it a try, you’ll be glad you did!
