RICE IS NOT JUST TO EAT WITH BEANS

It is common for people when transitioning to a healthier and 100% plant based diet  to feel lost, without knowing what to eat, and especially how to build a complete meal. One of the meals that immediately generate “panic” is breakfast, but truth to be told, we can be super creative when it comes to breakfast, we can stay with the basic coffee with “milk” and toasts, or we can upgrade and introduce some pancakes or waffles, we can even make amazing smoothies, or explore the enchanted world of porridges, which can be made with any cereal.

 

Today I bring to share with you the recipe of one of the porridges that I love the most, but most of the people are not used to it. I´m talking about Brown Rice Porridge. Yes, rice porridge! Rice is not just to eat with beans.

 

Rice is naturally gluten free which makes it an incredible cereal that can be eaten by everyone. It is an affordable product, easy to find and nutritionally very interesting, especially when we talk about brown rice. Brown rice plays a very important role in reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases as well as in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes (unlike white rice, which may even be associated with a higher risk). Rich in fiber and antioxidants, brown rice also contributes to an improvement on intestinal health, cholesterol reduction and weight loss (for being able to keep us satiated for longer).

 

However, and due to the high presence of arsenic in rice, it is convenient not only to soak this grain, always discarding the water, and if possible cook and then strain (these two tips will help a lot to reduce the arsenic presence in rice), and especially , alternating this grain with others such as oats, millet, buckwheat, quinoa, etc … This way we are able to obtain all the benefits and flavor of rice, without overloading our organism with a chemical element that in excess can become highly toxic.

 

Well, but I think it’s time to stop diabolizing rice, because we like it a lot, and truth be told, rice is very present in our culture. I thought it was good to just warn you that we should not eat rice daily, and if we do it, then we need to eat in moderate amounts, and preferably following the tips I shared with you above.

 

I think that after this no one will ever want to make this recipe! LOL

You can, and you should, in the name of a varied and rich diet! The secret is always in balance!

THIS RECIPE IS:

GLUTEN FREE | CREAMY| EASY | AFFORDABLE | NUTRITIOUS | SACIANTE

 

This recipe should not even be called a recipe because it is so easy to make. This is one of those recipes that leaves you without the typical excuses such as “Oh, but I don’t know how to cook, I don’t know how to do it, it is very difficult …” Forget it all! You just need to want to make it, to actually make it.

 

As it is a breakfast recipe, besides being easy it is super quick to make, which once again take you out the excuse of “Oh, but it takes too much time to make it.”

 

You really need to try this porridge! It is delicious, and its creaminess is out of this world! Best of all, this porridge is perfect for the whole family.

 

You can add the toppings you prefer, but I suggest with cinnamon, apples, walnuts and raisins. Seriously, it’s DIVINE!

 

Well, let´s jump into the recipe!

GET THE TIPS:

* You can use the vegetable milk you prefer, I always recommend the soy milk because it is the richest in protein. If you find fortified soy milk with calcium and B12 even better. Don’t forget that is your breakfast, the greater the source of nutrients in your first meal of the day, the better.

* You can add more cinnamon if you like, and you can also add more rice syrup. Keep in mind that the toppings you choose will make all the difference in the final taste.
