    My last physical indicates my triglycerides are 235 which is 85 over moderate. Is brown rice better for reducing my count?

    Your opinion would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    I love how versatile this humble grain Rice could be in more than a few types of cuisines world over. From extra distinguished Sushi to Risotto to the straightforward curd rice from South India, this historical grain has come some distance. And yes if you are already bored with the time consuming & tedious cooking approaches of your Risottos and the Shahi Pulav these quickies will win you over hands down.

    Made this recipe with a few changes and it was soooo good. Added onions/mushrooms to chicken with 2 tbsp. dark soya sauce. Added a 1/3 cup of coconut milk to mixture. Lemon wedges were the key ingredient to making the cilantro flavourful. This is a keeper and will serve to friends. Try it you will love it. Right on with the brown rice measurements worked wonderfully only I added a 1/2 of tumeric to boiling rice. This was so good I overate.
