Do you love rice, but fear it isn’t ‘nutritious’ or has too many carbs? Perhaps you should try RightRice? I received a professional sample box with 4 of the 6 different varieties of RightRice flavors and decided to give them a whirl.
What is RightRice?
The rice is made from vegetables including lentil and chick pea flour, rice flour as well as vegetable powders from bell pepper, tomato, onion, garlic and chili peppers. It also has a few spices and other flavors added in.
RightRice flavors include original, Spanish, cilantro lime, garlic herb, Thai curry and lemon pepper. It is ridiculously easy to cook, too. You boil water, add the RightRice and remove from heat. Cover the rice and let it stand for 12 minutes. Then fluff with a fork, let it sit a few minutes, then serve.
In addition to being lower in carbohydrates than regular rice (30 grams per serving versus 40 grams), the rice is much higher in protein and fiber.
White rice has 1 grams of fiber per serving, while brown rice has 2 grams. RightRice provides 5 grams of dietary fiber. The rice is also much higher in protein- a whopping 10 grams per serving over 2 grams in traditional rice.
If you know anything about blood sugar maintenance and appetite control, fiber and protein are key to managing both. Soluble fiber from lentils and chick peas is also beneficial for lowering cholesterol.
How to use RightRice
RightRice had a mildly spicy flavor and paired well with seasoned black beans, sauteed peppers and cilantro. If you’re looking for a more nutritious grain for your next meal, RightRice is nutrigirlapproved!
