My digestive system needs fiber, and I'll bet yours does, too! Complex carbs like brown rice are filling and do not spike your blood sugar like simple carbs. Enjoy some brown rice everyday to stay regular, feel full, and create a lovely foundation for your vegetables and proteins.
What is polenta? This international grain is a lovely side dish in our household. Take the time to cook cornmeal grits/polenta at home and avoid the instant variety. Polenta is sometimes eaten with maple syrup. A common dish in the cuisine of the Southern United States is grits, with the difference that grits are usually made from cooked, coarsely ground, corn kernels (ground hominy). Polenta is similar to boiled maize dishes of Mexico, where both maize and hominy originate. I like Bob's Red Mill Organic Corn Grits/Polenta.
You can dress up this simple recipe with vegetables, your favorite seasonings, or leftover proteins for a quick main dish!
We eat yummy oatmeal yet sometimes want something new. This coconut brown rice is a great morning meal!
