White Rice questions

I've decided to try to put white rice (basmati most likely) back into my diet. I've found that I feel much better when im eating more starches like sweet potatoe, squash ,etc. But ive always enjoyed white rice, so why not throw it back in? Ive been paleo a couple months and the only other food item ive brought back from pre-paleo days is greek yogurt, full fat of course. I was planning on cooking the white rice in bone broth to give it some nutrients, but does anyone have any idea when is the best time to eat a starch like this? before a workout, after a workout, breakfast, lunch , dinner? any help would be nice

but it tastes so much better in broth! And adding gelatin to your diet wherever you can is always a good thing.

Agreed. Timing is such a minute detail.

If you lived in Japan, traditionally it would be all day long with every meal. I wouldn't stress too much about when the most optimal time to eat it is (though, probably best right after a hard workout with some protein.) Just eat it when it sounds good. At my house, the rice cooker goes on most days around 5pm, then the leftovers get saved for fried rice. I usually eat Calrose with organic nori and tamari along with a healthy amount of vegetables, salad, and some kind of meat.

I eat 1/2 cup of white rice as the starchy part of my meal a few times a week. My vote is, if you're gonna eat it, cook it the ol' school way in water. I'm sure the rest of your diet is nutrient-packed enough to make up for it.
