I was cooking lunch with my girlfriend today, when a relative of mine walks in with some food (particularly meat mmmm). Since we barely got started cooking, only the vegetables and rice were cooked, and adding the meat the meal was completed faster then expected. I sat there eating my lunch when I came to the realization that I have eaten tofu for 3 days in a row. Not that I don't hate tofu, its just a record for me to eat it so often. I got curious and looked up the benefits of eating this strange gelatinous blob, only to find it being very good for you. Then I stared at my white rice, and wondered if that was good for me as well. A quick trip to google blasted me away with hearts, smiles, and giggles for brown rice, and distaste, avoidance, and scorn for the white. I sat there wondering why. White rice is brown rice but stripped of much of its 'nutritional' content (whatever that means). Instead of a complex carb of brown, you have the much more simpler white rice; this simpler carb then digests into sugar, and thus people categorize it as "bad". The simple sugar of white rice, however, have its benefits as well that brown rice can not compare too. Combined with protein (like from vegetables), white rice becomes the ideal food to eat to replace all the sugar a person looses after exercise. Anyone who is physically active, or works hard physical labor, could benefit from the great amounts of energy white rice gives. It is, however, a double edged sword. If the high amounts of energy are not used, the body will store it.
So ionno, im tired. What do you guys have to say to this? White rice bad? Good? ....Sushi?
