For this simple dessert recipe, you can substitute the dairy free vegan chocolate chips for some dairy free dark chocolate chips for a recipe that can benefit from the extra antioxidants in the cark chocolate. Using brown rice for this vegan diet dessert is also a way to get a little-added nutrition in this dessert idea. And while it might be true that white rice looks a bit more appealing to some than its brown rice counterpart, it doesn’t mean that it's the healthier alternative. Brown rice is the top choice when it comes to nutritional and other healthy benefits. When you compare brown to white rice, white rice has to go through a refining process. That means that white rice once looks the same as brown rice. Brown rice unlike white rice, still has the side hull and bran of the grain of rice. The side hulls and the brans provide natural wholeness to the brown rice grain and are rich in proteins, calcium, thiamine, magnesium, fiber, and potassium.

Unfortunately, most all white rice packaging has a label that reads that the white rice is enriched. And since white rice has been stripped of iron, zinc, vitamins, magnesium and other nutrients during the refining process, manufacturers must add in unnatural fortifications in the form of synthetic vitamins and iron. This is done so the white rice can be marketed to the public as nutritious food. Although white rice is fortified, it still doesn’t reach the minimum amount of nutritional requirements for one serving of food as is specified by the FDA.

Some of the benefits of brown rice are that it is rich in selenium. Brown rice is rich in selenium which helps to reduce the risk of developing common illnesses such as cancer, arthritis, and heart disease. Brown rice is also high in manganese, with one cup of brown rice providing about 80 percent of the daily manganese requirements. Manganese helps the body to synthesize fats. Manganese also benefits the body in that it is good for the nervous and reproductive systems. Brown rice is rich in naturally-occurring oils. Naturally occurring oils are good for the body because these healthful fats help to normalize cholesterol levels. You will find this chocolate vegan diet dessert on the Beaming Baker site.
