THIS RECIPE FOR MY HEALTHY SHRIMP FRIED RICE will be a HIT IN YOUR HOUSE

Brown rice is a healthier option than typical white rice. It is considered a whole grain because the bran and germ layers of the grain are left unprocessed. This also increases the fiber content.

An excellent tip is to cook the brown rice a day ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator. When rice is cooled for 12 hours, hydrogen bonds form between the amylose molecules outside the rice grains. This causes the starch in rice to be resistant starch. The glycemic index will be lowered. Foods lower on the glycemic index help keep your blood sugar levels steady, rather than spikes and lows.

A bonus in meal prepping brown and wild rice ahead of time is the time saved during the week. You can make this recipe below in less than 15 minutes if you have the rice already prepared.
