Since I was a child I’ve always loved rice. Growing up hot bread, potatoes, pasta, or rice were served with most meals. Now at a older age in life I want to live eating more healthy. I try to eat carbs in moderation daily. I also have eliminated bleached foods from my diet.
When I eat rice it’s usually brown rice. One day someone introduced me to black rice. Once I tasted the black rice I fell in love. The flavor is stonger than brown rice, plus it has a lot of nutrients. Looking at it I thought this can not be easy to make, but I’m going to give it a try.
I purchased a 2 pound bag and said I will give cooking my own black rice a try. It was as simple preparing it as brown rice is. Now that I know how to cook it, I can have it any time. I prepared it with blackened chicken, and avocado & tomato salad, it was a great combination. Black rice also goes well with fish. With so many varieties of rice available, why not eat the ones that are most healthy for you.
