Brown rice is being used more today then ever before and it is mainly because of the brown rice nutritional value. Brown rice is great since it has many great vitamins in it and it also contains less sugar and is recommended more now than ever before because of it’s nutritional value. When you cook brown rice the texture is muchdifferent than white rice so it might take some getting used to but in the end your body will thank you for it.

People are now starting to use brown rice and wild rice much more than they ever did. There are a few reasons for this surge in cooking brown rice and one of them is the fact that when it breaks down in your body it does not produce as much sugar as white rice does. White rice actually looks exactly like white rice before the white rice got refined. The side hull and the bran are taken off the white rice and you still have it on the brown one. The hull alone provides many needed vitamins that the white rice loses in the refining stage. Brown rice is also chockfull of selenium something that is believed to be helpful in reducing the risk of developing some negative health effects. It is also high in manganese and high in fiber as well as having great anti oxidant properties. Brown rice is now asked for in many restaurants and it will continue to be popular the more people hear about the many nutritional positives that come with it.

This recipe from Heidi calls for healthy veggies to be added and the chicken is grilled which always helps in reducing the oil content. Baked or grilled chicken is always preferred rather than frying. If you try to bake your chicken you will be doing yourself a favor. If you prefer you can even use pork tenderloin that also has a low fat content. Any time you come across any recipe you feel needs an adjustment never be scared to add your own personal touch.Thanks to Heidi of Foodie Crush Blog for this yummy Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowls Recipe that gives chicken thighs another home and bon apetit.**
