Rice: Our Staple Food

I love rice. You love rice. All my fellow Asian babes do. It has been around for thousands of years and is a giant staple in Asian cuisine. 
What is even better, is how good it is for you. While brown rice, is a bit more nutritious, because it is less processed, white rice is still good of course. 

Example: Take lets say, an apple.  Of course the apple itself is packed with goodness and great for you. But the most nutrition, is in the apple skin!
So you are still getting the nutrition, just a little less than the skin.

Let’s go into the benefits of our beloved staple!

Nutrition: 

It offers fiber and protein.

Vitamins and Minerals:


Rice is packed with iron, niacin, 
thiamin, and folic acid. Which promote healthy

red blood cell function.

Niacin and thiamin support your metabolism.

Now dig in!
