There are basically two kinds of rice: white and brown. Sure, there’s also wild rice (not really rice), long grain, short grain, etc. But it boils down (haha) to just two kinds of rice. And there are more differences between the two than just color and texture.
In our house we eat white rice. When we started eating better last year we ate brown rice, but we could quickly tell it wasn’t working. Not only was it more difficult to get the kids to eat brown rice, but we all felt a little “bleh” afterward. Our symptoms ranged from a general sluggish feeling to tummy aches, and it was clear the rice was the culprit as we ate it with a variety of meats and vegetables.
