BROWN vs WHITE rice... Which is healthier?
The facts: 🍚Brown rice is a WHOLE grain full of fiber and more nutrients, as it is unprocessed. 🍚 1 cup cooked = 216 calories if you’re counting, compared to its’ white counterpart at 169 kcal. 🍚 5 grams protein in the brown vs 3.5 grams in the white version. 🍚 Brown (rice) has 5x the calcium, 4x the iron, 10x the magnesium and 83.9 mg of potassium, as compared to 17.4 mg in white. 🍚 White rice is processed and easier to cook and digest. With a shorter cooking time and longer shelf-life in the white, (brown rice has an oil-rich germ susceptible to rancidity.) 🍚 White rice can’t boast the vitamin profile of brown rice. It can also cause blood sugar instability. White is also not as nutty and chewy.
BEST KETO BREAD
FROM KETO CONNECT
• 1 1/2 Cup Blanched Almond Meal
• 6 Large eggs separated
• 4 tbsp Butter melted
• 3 tsp Baking powder
• 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar (It's ok if you don't have this)
• 1 pinch Pink Salt
• 6 drops Liquid Stevia (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 180*C.
2. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Add Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat until soft peaks are achieved.
3. In a food processor combine the egg yolks, 1/3 of the beaten egg whites, melted butter, almond flour, baking powder and salt (Adding ~6 drops of liquid stevia to the batter can help reduce the mild egg taste). Mix until combined. This will be a lumpy thick dough until the whites are added.
4. Add the remaining 2/3 of the egg whites and gently process until fully incorporated. Be careful not to overmix as this is what gives the bread it's volume!
5. Pour mixture into a buttered 8x4 loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Check with a toothpick to ensure the bread is cooked through. Enjoy! 1 loaf makes 20 slices.

Recipe from Paleo Grubs
Great quick recipe that can just fill those gaps between meals. This recipe is low carb and gluten and dairy free. And as you can see by my attempt at making these they are easy to make, just have to make them a little straighter 😊 Also we had some the next night and to warm them up I put them under the grill, which also put some more colour in them.

3. Decreases Antinutrients & Phytic Acid

⚪️ Sprouting is essentially the practice of germinating seeds — whether grains, nuts, beans or other kinds of seeds — so that they are easier to digest and your body can access their full nutritional profile.
⚪️ One of the biggest benefits of sprouting grains, beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds is that it helps to decrease the presence of anti-nutrients. Anti-nutrients are naturally occurring compounds that are found in plant seeds that interfere with our ability to digest vitamins and minerals within the plants.
