While I think on the whole, my body does better with less grains, brown rice does happen to be one of my faves as far as grains go.
I especially love fat, plump, and sticky short grain brown rice but don’t worry if you don’t know the difference between short grain and long because I’ve got it all covered in this video.
I almost always have a container of brown rice (or quinoa) hanging out in my fridge – if for no other reason than to whip up my Easy Brown Rice And Black Beans.
Yes, it’s true… Katie eats this meal for dinner about twice a week.
What can I tell ya, it takes all of two minutes to make, and served alongside some mashed avocado, my two year old is a happy camper.
Happy two year old = happy Mommy.
Two minutes to makes kids dinner = plenty of time to make fresh squeezed margaritas.
Mommy after a fresh squeezed margarita = a very happy Daddy.
Ya see… who knew a container of brown rice in the fridge could have such a ripple effect?!!
Now go watch the video so you can bring some more brown rice love into your family!! xo
