    Whats the fastest way of making brown rice?

    Is there any microwave rices that are worth buying? Are they still healthy? Low GI, etc.

    Right now 85% of my carb intake is oats (about 3 cups uncooked a day) and a little Ezekial Bread.

    I'm looking to drop a little more calories a day, so I'm thinking if I replace one of my 1 cup oat meals (48g carbs) to 1 cup rice (about the same carbs) I can shed 100 calories right there

    Is that just as healthy as buying any other kind of rice, and using a rice cooker? I dont want to hurt my cutting progress.

    Interesting:

    Ingredients: PRECOOKED LONG GRAIN BROWN RICE

    Doesn't seem bad at all. What kind of rice do you use of theres? I see they have quite a few different kinds.

    Which kind do you use? And are these just as healthy as normal rice? And are these good for cuts?

    I have a simple suggestion....

    Take a cup of real brown rice and cook it the 40+ minutes it takes, and cook a cup of the instant stuff. Taste test them and decide for yourself if it is worth the extra time cooking.

    IMHO, that 40+ mins is very well worth it. The flavor and texture difference is huge. It lasts for days in the fridge, and if you micro it just add a sprinkle of water before you nuke it.

    EDIT: Sorry forgot to comment on flavor....

    I use salt and pepper most of the time. Bouillion rocks, I prefer chicken, and sprinkeld on not cooked with the rice.

    Texture is sometimes more important than taste, try frying the rice (like risoto [sp?]) for a few in olive oil then cooking it like normal. It gives it a bit more of a crunch and really brings out the nutty flavor of brown rice.

    Are these microwave rices, good in a cutting diet? It seems like something must be bad about them compared to regular rice?
