Which one do you eat bros? Why?
read some shit about brown being linked to estrogen production somehow or intefering with natty test. Stopped eating it immediately like the tool i am, think i skipped on white rice because of the carbs or something and i didn't like the way it tasted with chicken and eggs all mixed up.
Brown rice takes a fuckload of effort to cook, and presents a meager improvement over white rice that it's almost negligible in the long run.
Black rice is excellent for it's nutritional value, and Basmati rice is just god tier for flavor and texture while still being healthier than most pastas and grains.
>easier to cook
>don't feel like eating 100g of fiber or even more since i'm already eating my greens and legumes
brown rice is a meme, white rice all the way
Brown rice requires 30 minutes to cook the husks, and 30 minutes more to actually cook.
I'm not waiting a fucking hour to cook some rice, fuck that shit, I'll cook my basmati in 20 minutes in the nukerowave.
Brown rice takes me the same time as white rice on the stove (30 min), the only difference is that I have to let brown rice simmer and I have to pay attention to it so that it doesn't burn.
dunno what's wrong with mine then, cooking it on the stove the same as my white rice gets me a shitty, crunchy rice that isn't properly cooked.
I prefer basmati anyway as it's delicious and the texture is spot on. On top of that, it makes the best base rice for Fried Rice.
you're doing something wrong then. white rice, doesn't matter if parboiled, basmati or w/e there is, takes 15min tops.
>1 part rice, 2 parts water in a pot
>put on stove and turn to max. heat
>when water starts to boil, turn heat down to the point where water is barely boiling
>let rice soak until water is almost entirely gone
I follow the directions on the rice bag. If it's not cooked enough I add more water and let it go longer, I really don't care if my rice is overdone. Also if you let it soak in cold water for a while it might speed up cooking. Basmati is indeed the greatest.
I eat brown rice, I just like it. I live at a higher altitude and brown rice has to simmer for 50 minutes in my experience.
I just make it at the same time I'm baking a bunch of chicken to meal prep while I watch tv or something.
I eat brown because I really don't care what my food tastes like as long as it's not horrible.
i prefer white rice if i have gravy though. white rice + stewed beef + gravy is GOAT
Sticky rice master race reporting in.
>sticky rice + milk + banana/ mango = elder god tier dessert
They serve yellow rice at Pollo Tropical and when they asked white or yellow rice I was confused. I got the yellow rice thinkin itd be just brown rice but the color was actually yellow.
>the current year
>not mixing ur rice with lentils
hate gettin big or summat? comon
>ONE hour to cook brown rice
You dun goofed
Add boiling water to brown rice, bring to boil, turn down heat to low, put on a lid and let it simmer
This should take 30 mins
BROWN RICE: Higher in fiber and minerals, things present in the grain shell. Lower glycæmic index, since it's slower to digest.
WHITE RICE: Processed rice to remove the shell, easier to cook, more delicious, less nutritive since it has fewer minerals. Higher glycæmic index because no shell, digests quicker.
Studies in mice have shown, without a doubt, that higher glycæmic index foods are more fattening. Higher glycæmic index means a higher blood glucose level, and a higher insulin spike to deal with all that sugar. Higher insulin equals higher fat storage and higher muscle protein synthesis IN THEORY. Studies done on humans have been shown to be inconclusive, and GI foods are not thought to be more fattening. General /fit/ consensus is to eat lower GI foods through the day to fuel the body, and higher GI foods after a workout together with a rich protein source to fuel the muscles.
Personally it doesn't matter if you are hitting your fiber macros, since fiber forms a gel in the stomach which slows the carbohydrate breakdown and therefore lower the GI of food. Aim for a 30g-40g of fiber/day. Oats and beans are a good source of fiber, are very delicious, and very nutritive.
This. You are doing it right. Rich fiber content of lentils essentially lowers the glycemic index of your rice.
White rice is delicious even on it's own. Brown rice tastes like gritty dirt and isn't as good for you in comparison as faggots make it out to be
Though with how awful brown rice tastes I don't care if it'd give me fucking super powers to eat a bowl a day. I honestly can't fathom how people eat it. Literally like eating gravel imho
