Benefits of Brown Rice

I  serve brown  rice in our table for a couple of  weeks now.   I don’t really like the brown rice  at first because of its not really good  taste or maybe we’re used to white  rice with soft  though kind of  bland taste.  When I first cooked brown rice, I mixed  it  with  white since the first class brown rice was not  available at the time of my purchase.  Plain brown rice tastes like corn.  Brown rice is considered a whole grain and has more fiber than white.

If  you zoom in the label and nutrition facts,  you’ll read the many benefits of brown rice as follows:

  • good source of fiber
  • lower your cholesterol
  • prevent colon cancer
  • give younger looking skin
  • lower your blood pressure
  • relieve arthritis pain
  • prevent heart disease
  • control diabetes
  • prevent gallstones
  • improve your memory
  • prevent obesity

Vita Rice is a certified diet rice.  I am not after for its losing weight benefits but more on the  cholesterol and and  fiber content  for every  grain of  brown rice.

Count the Calories

I used to count the calories that I have in my meal everyday but lose track of it and started to gain more pounds again. I am now ten pounds heavier. Can you tell how many calories do I have in this meal. I had this for lunch during the launch of Football Clinic held at Shangri-La. There is about 348 calories for salmon alone. Now count the rest.

I so Love Minute Maid Pulpy!

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe… they are just saying it as part of their marketing strategy.

I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added. So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED! That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse…carcinogens! Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I… must say this is the first bottled drink that is really natural.

So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right? Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means… oranges are just freshly picked.
So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added – meaning it’s THAT natural, it’s almost like it’s plucked straight from the tree, it’s just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it’s got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives’ bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is ’cause it’s got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I’m gonna include this in my healthy diet!

Feels good to know about the real pulpy deal, right? C’mon show me a smile on the comment box, and you might win yourself a Really Pulpy Deal! (That’s a chance to win a Minute Maid gift pack simply by commenting. Sweet! C’mon you just might be picked as the lucky ‘commentor’!)
