So recently I got the chance to try black rice. I mean not just buying a meal size black rice from my favorite delivery meal station, but to actually own few kilos from the grocery shelves. I am talking about the naturally grown Jordan Farms black rice from Sunnywood. This coincide with my planned trip to Boracay so I really felt like there is an urgency for me to try new things. Take note, I am not trying to go on a diet because my workout program is to gain weight. Anyway, I have been trying black rice and brown rice in the past from time to time but this time I am sharing you why I fell in love with black rice from Jordan Farms.
Being with friends who are health enthusiasts in the community, I have been informed about some impressive health benefits about black rice compare to other rice varieties. As shown in this optimistic packaging from Jordan Farms, it has lower calorie content and is number one source of anti-oxidant. I am impressed with how the packaging sealed the content.
Mom was happy to see I am cooking my own rice one Saturday so I showed her the texture of it. As black rice is also a good source of iron, we decided to give Jordan Farms a try for a week.
As we live in a fast pace world, we sometimes tend to buy instants and fast food meals which doesn’t help us achieve our desire digestive health. As some of you already know, black rice and other whole grain rice varieties- like brown or red rice- have a similar amount of fiber, which is good in helping improve our digestive health. As far as I remember during one of the organic agriculture trips I attended, black rice contains about 2-3 grams of fiber per half cup serving. According to the instruction, all you have to do is to remember the following:
For every one cup of black rice, the ratio should be 2.5 cups for water.
Wash and then soak black rice for 30 minutes before cooking
It usually takes 45 minutes for the black rice to cook. I used rice cooker by the way.
Going back to its benefit, Jordan Farms black rice, it contains fiber that will surely help us to prevent constipation, bloating, and other unwanted digestive symptoms. So I am recommending this as your alternative to our traditional white rice.
To summarize, Jordan Farms black rice is very easy to prepare. Now I think I can prepare my own than ordering meals outside. I think my new journey to healthy lifestyle gave me an extra high awareness about the food I eat. As working out in the gym is not enough, I have my Sunnywood black rice with me!
