Secrets of Success

Brown Rice Works For Me!



Every time I have successfully lost weight, part of my strategy was to substitute brown rice for other starches. If my family was having pasta or white rice for dinner, I would microwave some pre-cooked brown rice from a big container that I kept in the fridge. I like brown rice, but if I hadn't pre-cooked it, I probably wouldn't bother to do the quick swap. For me it works with almost any meal: fish, chicken, meatballs. Its great mixed with peas, corn or beans. Its great in soup too! emoticon

More Information:

Brown rice is higher in fiber than most starches. For me it reduces the craving for sweets and salty treats. If you are in a rush, Minute Rice does brown rice as well.
