Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?

If you are a rice-eater, which one is better, white rice or brown rice? I was just wondering because I read somewhere that brown rice is worse because it's covered with a whole grain. Is it true that the outer covering is a grain?

chipaleo 0 · January 26, 2013 at 9:18 PM

Thriving Asian countries have eaten white rice for a long time. I heard the outer part is fed to the chickens. Brown rice is a new "health food." Avoid it. Also, Mark Sisson says wild rice is okay in moderation.

Does anyone who eats rice make it with bone broth? Do you think the minerals get infused into the rice completely? There's no liquid left in the pan when the rice is done. Thanks.

Yes, and I would think so. Actually I make a sort of pilaf: brown a little onion and a few pine nuts in butter, then saute the rice for a few minutes, then add the broth and cook as usual.

raydawg 0 · September 05, 2012 at 9:57 AM

If it's white rice, there shouldn't be much if any, as the antinutrients were in the part that was removed, so it's not very different from eating a load of sugar. It's possible, though I've never heard of puffed brown rice.
