For lunch I had delicious sushi! Sushi is thought to be one of the healthiest food options out there, but we must always be careful with the amount. Everything in moderation, right?
The reason is because sushi does have white rice. White rice has most of its nutrients stripped from it in the milling process, thus taking away most nutritional benefits from it. Also, short grain white rice has a GI of 72, whereas the GI of brown rice is 55. Brown rice also has more fiber.
Did you know that by eating brown rice instead of white rice, you can decrease your chances of getting diabetes by 16%?
