After being promised a raise that has not come through, I am having to reexamine our food budget. My Aunt is trying to be helpful, and proposed a drastic, 30 day beans and rice diet (now, I'm being literal here. She means 30 days, buy nothing... (more)
I've noticed that many older Chinese and Indian women have hair loss or female pattern baldness. If you look closely, most Asian and Indian women over 40 have some degree of balding. Usually, Asian women have hair loss on the top of their head,... (more)
No one can deny that Paleo monks are healthy, and not few reach the hundred years or at least get very old, but still are very active and healthy. Well, but they are mostly vegans, but always vegetarians, as one part of their "Dharma" ist to... (more)
Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?
Rather than 'not ideal' for you? My family can't stand most green, leafy veggies unless they're done 100% 'right,' and I get tired of tossing out good broccoli. They eat enriched white rice probably 1x a day, which obviously provides some... (more)
A bottle of red-colored Mrs. Dash seasoning I have has rice extract listed as the last ingredient on the back. My suspicion was that this was a code term for MSG, but a google search came up with nothing. Any ideas on why this is in the... (more)
I've started to incorporate soaked brown rice into my arsenal. My carb intake is on the higher side (feel best with atleast 2-3 servings of starch/day) .At 2mg per cup of brown rice and the tolerable upper limit at 11mg, you throw in some seafood... (more)
Hi How can I tell whether it would be safe to reintroduce rice into my diet? When I began Paleo I assumed it was off limits but some recent internet surfing produced results that some believe it to be a safe starch? What can I look for to see if... (more)
I've seen several people posting about eating rice and eating grains, but to my understanding, I thought if you're eating Paleo, you're supposed to stay away from these things? Also people have talked about cheese and milk... again, ok or avoid?... (more)
Rice is questioned quite a bit in Paleo. A friend of mine is going to be adopting a "strict Paleo" diet as part of a Crossfit program, so I decided to prepare some notes regarding the rice issue. Since we both love eating Asian food (especially... (more)
I'm am considering starting an autoimmune protocol, would i need to exclude rice. I can't seem to find a answer to this elsewhere. I have no bad reactions to starch as far as i can tell.
I eat a bowl of white rice occasionally as part of a post-workout meal. I have some bone stock, and I substituted water with it in my rice cooker. After it was done cooking, it stuck to the bottom. Any tips on how to avoid sticking? Should I... (more)
If you are a rice-eater, which one is better, white rice or brown rice? I was just wondering because I read somewhere that brown rice is worse because it's covered with a whole grain. Is it true that the outer covering is a grain?
Thriving Asian countries have eaten white rice for a long time. I heard the outer part is fed to the chickens. Brown rice is a new "health food." Avoid it. Also, Mark Sisson says wild rice is okay in moderation.
In my opinion, the "all grains are evil and toxic" mantra is a major fault of paleo. But, that's what makes it paleo- eliminating grains. So, if you're not doign that then technically you can't call yourself paleo. The reason I think it's stupid... (more)
So I consider myself a paleo purist- I don't even eat apples due to the sugar content. I was surprised seeing Paul jaminet recommend white rice and sweet potatoes on his " perfect health diet" I'd love to add these foods in my diet, but it goes.... (more)
Hello! I was just wondering, is White pearl grain rice a safe paleo food? or not? I don't think it is bad as I have not gained weight when eating it as I have with other carbohydrates, could anyone give me a reccomendation? thanks!
SO I keep hearing that a lot of rice has arsenic in it and that some types are better than others. Every time I walk in to a grocery store I get bombarded by all these brands emphasizing some different detail, so I was wondering if anyone had a... (more)
Yes, and I would think so. Actually I make a sort of pilaf: brown a little onion and a few pine nuts in butter, then saute the rice for a few minutes, then add the broth and cook as usual.
I know a good amount of paleo people accept white rice as a safe starch because it is purely that, a starch. What about cream of rice? I got it from the store and the only ingredient is granulated rice, so just from that it seems like it is fine.... (more)
I want to make my girlfriend her fav dessert dish which is a Thai sweet sticky conconut sauce rice dish. The sauce I can sweeten with liquid stevia which I am not worried about, its the sticky rice I am. I was planning on using a cauliflower rice... (more)

white rice. With soy sauce. 1- Say I eat white rice with lots of soy sauce 3-4 times a week. Tell me what what sort of effects you think it would have, if any to my health from a grain/paleo perspective? I realize this question is fairly open to... (more)
