Note: For some reason lately, I have been CRAVING rice lately... Rice gets a lot of bad wrap because of the carbs, but being a runner, my body craves the carbs. In addition, it's a staple for bodybuilders. I will be honest, there was a period of time when I first started dieting, I was scared to eat rice. But, as the old saying goes, it's all about moderation. However, rice is very good for you and tastes so good!
Check out this article from bodybuilding.com, which compares brown rice and white rice.
Be on the lookout for some rice recipes :)
