We all are very much familiar with the brown trend of weight loss. It is nothing but consuming brown edibles. They are said to be more nutritious and healthy than the other colourful edibles. Read on to know the health benefits of some brown edibles:
BROWN RICE: Brown rice is better for you than white — most of us know that! We always choose white rice over brown as it looks better and tastes better. Brown rice on the other hand is not polished and is “whole” with all the nutrients and health benefits compiled in it. Before white rice went through the refining process, it at one time looked exactly like brown rice.
Brown rice, unlike white rice, still has the side hull and bran, which renders quicker cooking times and makes it easier to digest as it’s much “lighter” in the in the stomach. The side hulls and brans provide “natural wholeness” to the grain and are rich in proteins, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and potassium. For those trying to lose weight or those suffering from diabetes, brown rice can prove a healthful staple given its low glycemic rating which helps reduce insulin spikes.
