The image attached is actually a risotto dishes I made using millet, but I seem to have trouble eating a lot of millet as it facts poorly with my recent gallbladder removal and digestive pains for some reason.
I'm mostly on a vegan whole food diet so I use a lot of grains and seeds as staples. Rice is a long time favorite of mine but I've recently done research on the arsenic content in it, and most authorities agree it's not actually something we should ignore or take lightly. Arsenic in rice is a real concern. I've been using brown rice because it's obviously a lot healthier but it is said to contain up to 80% more arsenic than white rice. So it's a trade off. You can either consume brown rice for all it's health benefits and ingest a lot of arsenic in the meantime, or you can switch to white rice and risk high blood sugar, empty calorie overload, heart disease, diabetes etc. So there's no winning with rice. Should we all just agree that rice is generally an unhealthy choice and limit it to a few small servings per week at the most? Would that be justified?
I've been using other grains and seeds like quinoa and buckwheat instead which are great, but I still prefer rice from time time because it tastes a lot better and is more satiating. I wish I could eat my brown rice in peace
