I usually don't eat rice but I am needing to safe money and I find myself eating to much sugar (from fruits) so I am trying to get away from that. Also Is oatmeal worse or better than rice IF you had to choose from either ? Paleo Daddy on a budget Need help !

I can only recommend testing, possibly by soaking some dry rolled oats overnight in unsweetened live culture yogurt, which might chew up the protein (avenin?) a little bit.

@travis, when I was insulin resistant a half cup of sushi rice would shoot my blood sugar right up to 200. Starch is 100% glucose after very minimal digestion time, though glutinous sticky sushi rice could be the worst of them.

Perhaps you've confused refined sugar with white rice? White rice isn't a blank slate at all.

When I was insulin resistant white rice was one of the worst foods for controlling my blood sugar. Especially sticky rice, but all white rices would send big shots of glucose straight into my bloodstream.

I eat plenty of rice as a main carb source - and I'm not particularly low carb, either - but when I mean staple, I mean bulk of your food. I don't think rice is bad for you, exactly, but out of all the nutrient dense food out there, it doesn't rank. It's more of a blank slate that isn't harmful for a healthy person. SAD meal for me was relatively large bowl of rice with a tiny bit of meat, no-to-little fat, and as few veggies as I could manage. Primal meal for me is plenty of meat and veggies with normal fat and a side of rice.

To start, there is no such thing as white wild rice. Even though it is called rice, wild rice is actually a seed. It is called rice because it is used culinarily like rice and with rice.

I don't know about brands, but if you are looking for a rice for breakfast applications, short grain will have a better texture for cereal type dishes. For savory applications, a long grain rice like basmati or jasmine may be more what you are looking for.

Rice is preferable to oats because it has less anti nutrients. However, if you are a person without major gastrointestinal or insulin related dysfunction, it would not be the end of the world to eat it once in awhile. However, I would not make either 1 a staple.

Wild rice is black and about 10x as expensive as white rice. It's a whole food and much healthier than white rice. If you don't have an allergy to oats (oats contain a protein similar to gluten), I'd eat them in preference to white rice. Antinutrients notwithstanding, oats contain more nutrients than white rice. For instance, if you compare them in the USDA database, oatmeal contains 148mg of magnesium per 100g dry, versus 25mg per 100g dry white rice.
