Brown rice

Brown Rice
If you haven't made the switch from white rice to brown rice yet, we ask: what are you waiting for?! This is a whole grain that is a top source for magnesium, a mineral that your body uses for more than 300 chemical reactions. Plus it keeps you full longer since it's a complex carbohydrate that won't spike your blood sugar.
We love brown rice in many recipes, including Brown Rice Salad with Cilantro Dressing, Beef and Brown Rice Soup and Jalapeño Rice Fritters.
