I have a confession.
I like brown long grain rice.
I think about fixing it about an hour after I needed to fix it…. which does me no good and is even worse news for my family.
The rice sits.
I forget to get it made… and I must then substitute something else, which is generally NOT going to be as nutritious if it’s rice in the microwave!
Finally get a rice cooker!
I did it!! I’m excited to be the owner of a rice cooker/vegetable steamer!
[ Yes, I realize it’s a big one, but let’s face it – someday I’m going to be fixing A LOT of food for 10 people! ]
Just think, for about 1/2 of a cup of rice – and around 100 calories, you can get about 30 grams of carbs, and about 5 grams of protein!! Not to mention packed with vitamins, minerals and a low glycemic index for you health! YUM! Perfect to go with my steamed veggies! Didn’t God do a great job of giving us so many whole foods to enjoy?
AND if you get a rice cooker…. you don’t have to sit it on the stove and babysit it for an hour or more!
Hope you have a great weekend!
“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,
so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
1 Corinthians 12:9
