Are there any health differences between these rices? I want to start eating more carbs and am wondering what rice is good to eat.

I'll second that. Rice on it's own can be rough on my system, but pilaf doesn't bother me at all. Also, it's really easy to throw in some stir-fried meats and veggies to make a whole meal out of it.

Ah the "F" search tag. Why didn't I think of that?

Steamed or boiled seems best. Pudding introduces something sugary, fried introduces potentially oxidized fat. And while I'm not so sure about this, I think wild rice might be more like brown, in that it has more of the outer seed bits that brown rice has, where the anti-nutrients supposedly reside.

Having said that, I don't obsess too much about these things. I make fried rice occassionally, a fun and tasty way to use leftover boiled rice that can easily take on Chinese, Thai, or Indian flavors, and more. Definitely consider risotto--a fabulous way to get some Italian back in your life, if you miss pasta.

Rice pilaf. Basically, rice cooked in soup/broth. I especially like it cooked in my chicken broth. Yum.

maybe risotto rice? because it can be enhanced by veggies/protein galore and super creamy naturally! For some reason I can digest risotto rice better than regular rice, but both are a chore on my system.

I would say: look for inspiration in people who traditionally eat rice. And look for the traditional, not modernized, version. This approach never failed me :-)

well rice pudding is gonna have sugar in it so i would stay away from that. it really depends on yr body and how you tolerate carbs and fats together, i personally would go for plain rice over fried rice because unless im low low carb i can't eat a lot of fat without gaining. ymmv.
