Brown Rice Nutrition Facts:

  • Which contains only one gram of sugar and very little fat
  • Rice is an excellent source of the trace mineral manganese, and a good source of the minerals selenium and magnesium.
Why Brown Rice Is Not The Health Food Most People Think It Is!

According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, "fruits and vegetables should form the base of your food pyramid. Grains simply do not contain enough nutrients per calories to form a substantial part of your diet."

This is a fairly controversial assertion, because we all know that Brown Rice has more fiber than White Rice.

However, what Fuhrman is referring to is the overall nutrient density scores in relation to other foods.

We recently published a short piece on how to cook white rice.  We were sent a barrage of emails asking us why we were not cooking brown rice instead!

Our answer was that our focus was really on the greens and vegetables, which often have 10 or even 20 times the aggregate nutrient density.

When it came to rice, we wanted it to taste good! For those of you following the Cheat System or any other healthy eating plan, if you already eat brown rice and like it, great.

But our point is that there are other areas of focus in nutrition and we all only have so much time. We hope this makes sense and please keep all the questions and feedback coming!
