After sharing my video for Brown Rice Three Ways (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner) last week, I wanted to go back and be sure to give you guys each individual recipe. This way those of you who like to print things out (like myself) will have the option to do so.
Feel free to experiment with other grains such as quinoa, barley, and faro; they would all work for this recipe and provide you with the same warm, comforting, type of breakfast that oatmeal provides.
Plus, studies show that eating whole grains helps to lessen a sweet tooth, since grains have a natural sweetness to them. So if you find yourself reaching for sugary coffee drinks, or big fat muffins this time of year, adding some more whole grains to your diet could possibly help fend off those sugar cravings.
Stay tuned for the rest of the week, because I’ll be posting the rest of the brown rice recipes as well!
