If I'm exercising at home I put my brown rice on to cook and then go exercise to a Leslie Sansone DVD. I can run to the kitchen to turn the burner down and continue exercising while the rice is finishing up on low heat. Don't say you don't have time to make brown rice. Don't say you don't have time to exercise. Just do both at the same time! Make enough brown rice for several days.
I save money and eat healthy by slow cooking large amounts of brown rice or beans and then saving meal sized portions in re-usable freezer and microwave safe containers. I also do this with chicken breast I use for salads and sandwiches and it saves me from buying the salty prepared kind.
