When I make a meal, I have used riced cauliflower in place of rice. I haven’t had rice in a long time because the carbs in rice is astronomical. In one cup of basic white or brown rice, there are about 45g of carbs. It is even more in other types of rie. Well, if you can only have between 50 to 100 g of carbs per day to lose weight, then that is most of your consumption in just one cup of rice!
So, a study came out about rice! It seems that if you cook rice differently, you can halve the calories and I would think the carbs as well.
The new cooking method:
1. Add a half cup of uncooked rice to boiling water with a teaspoon of coconut oil.
2. Let the rice simmer for 40 minutes, but confirmed that boiling for 20 to 25 minutes would also work.
3. The last step of the process involved refrigerating the rice for 12 hours. Then you can reheat it.
Well, I suppose it is worth a shot once in a while. To me, 22g of carbs is still a lot for a cup, but if you eat half a cup at 11g of carbs to have with your Tikka chicken, it might be worth it once in awhile, instead of my usual riced cauliflower.
