We all know by now that brown rice is better for you than white rice. Admittedly the switch can be a little dicey; brown rice has a distinct flavor whereas white rice is bland. Once you embrace the nuttiness and texture of brown rice, you will not go back to white rice.

Brown rice is considered a whole grain. Whole grains reduce the risk of heart disease. The high fiber content of brown rice promotes weight loss as it provides satiety and eases digestion. It is rich in antioxidants and naturally occurring oils. Whole grains including brown rice are the foundation for a well-balanced diet.
