Rice.


Rice is an essential nutritional source for the holistic and macrobiotic vegetarian health diet.

A health conscious vegetarian diet is rich in rice. Health advisors and macrobiotic nutrition experts inform us that rice contains a wide variety of B vitamins, valuable minerals, such as potassium and phosphorus, and protein.

Brown rice is richer in these health promoting nutrients than white rice. A balanced supply of these nutrients in our diet is essential for holistic health.

Rice is not exceptionally high in calories. Both brown and white contain only about 35 calories per oz/25 g when cooked. Even if you are trying very hard to slim or diet, you should never exclude rice and other grain products from your diet altogether, for they provide many essential nutrients that are required for optimum health.

A diet that includes rice combined with pulses will provide a health conscious vegetarian meal relatively low in calories that will fill you up and satisfy part of your daily nutritional intake.

 

Buying and Storing

Long grain is the most versatile kind in the kitchen and it is a good idea to have a supply of either ordinary long grain white or long grain brown in the larder: the brown will probably appeal more to those families who eat a diet that is rich in health promoting wholefoods. Both types can be used in similar recipes.

Once opened, store in rigid containers in a cool, dry place. White will keep for at least 18 months when stored correctly, though certain speciality rice may have a shorter life. For brown, look for the 'best before' date on the pack, as this is a useful guide.

 

How much per portion?

It swells a great deal as it cooks and what appeared to be a very small amount when put in the pan quickly becomes sufficient to feed several people. In the average diet, an average amount per person is 2 oz/50 g of uncooked for savory dishes.

When cooked it will weigh 6-8 oz/175-225g.

Try this amount on your family at first, and increase or decrease the amount according to their preferences.
