The advantages with consuming rice

Updated on April 1, 2012

Rice is a staple food stuff for millions of folks all over the planet. If you want to know the health advantages associated with biting on rice please carry on reading.

Rice is, without a doubt, one of the most fitting ingredients in the universe. You may not appreciate it but if you take a step back and really think about the humble grain of rice, you will soon see what a brilliant food stuff it is as there are many benefits associated with gobbling on rice. Don't believe me? Need a bit more convincing? Well check these out........

i) Rice is versatile

Rice is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of different cuisines and meals. Take a look at the "popular" cuisines of the planet and almost all of them will include rice in some of their well known dishes. Chinese cuisine, Spanish cuisine, West Indian cuisine, Thai cuisine, Japanese cuisine and Indian cuisine all use some kind of rice. In fact, the only cuisine for which I am struggling to think of a rice dish is Italian, but then again I think Italian cuisine is the most repetitive and tedious of all so it doesn't really matter.

The above goes to show that as long as you own a bag of rice in your food store you will be able to make a healthy luncheon in no time.

ii) Rice is readily at hand and cheap

Rice is readily at one's disposal and stocked by shops and stores of all sizes. From the mini corner shop to the greatest super markets and everything in between, all will stock rice so getting hold of some will not create too many issues.

The availability of rice only advantages the consumer since it makes it a cheap staple food stuff, which makes it ideal for students and those living and biting on on a budget.

iii) Rice is easy to prepare

many meals are difficult and time biting on to cook however rice is not. As long as you boil or steam the rice and keep an eye on it during steaming it is difficult to make a mess of. For light and fluffy rice, what I would call perfect rice, each and every time you are going to need the best rice cooker. Fortunately, the choicest rice cookers are un-costly and will provide many years of service, provided you care for it of course.

iv) Rice is nutritious and a great source of carbohydrates

On its own rice is healthy, nutritious and very good for you. Rice is also a great source of carbohydrates which will give you drive all through the day.

Rice is also a great energy food for track meets, cycling events, marathons, triathlons and any other high intensity event. It is advisable to dine a lot of carbohydrates the evening before the sporting event and a saucer or two of rice will hand down all the carbohydrates you yearn.

This write-up is focused on just four advantages associated with feasting on rice and there are many, many more besides.
