Rice, if taken correctly, is nutritious

We all know that Rice has been a staple diet in many parts of India. It contains mainly carbohydrates with almost negligible proteins, fats and minerals. 100 grams of Rice gives us 300-400 calories. In Ayurveda, Khichari (rice-lentil stew) has been recommended because the proteins in rice, when mixed with proteins in the grams/lentils can produce nutritious results. Many people in Western and Southern India cook rice in milk to make “Payasam” which is very nutritious, but it should be taken without sugar. Other milk products like curd, buttermilk, yoghurt etc when mixed with rice show good nutritional value.

Forms of Rice : From all varieties, the manually polished rice is the best for digestion. Try to get this organic rice from villages or directly from farmers. It may be difficult to get this form of rice in cities or big metros.

Ayurvedic Analysis : Rice has a sweet post-digestive effect (“Vipaka”). It reduces pitta vitiation and has a cooling effect on the body. This holds special mention since most of the people in North American region have elevated “Pitta Dosha” imbalance due to stressful lifestyle and intake of junk food etc. The best way to cook rice is to add double the water to it for boiling. When half the water remains, remove that water and serve it. This form of cooked rice is light for digestion and rich in nutrition. This form of a light meal is very good for children suffering from fever, mumps, ring worm, hay fever etc. Rice also strengthens semen. Many Ayurvedic texts recommend mixing milk, rice and dates to increase the strength of semen and quality of sperms.

Beneficial in GERD, Bloating and Acidity : People suffering from Gastro-Esophageal Reflux or Hyperacidity should not be afraid of rice. Rice milked with milk, or plain yoghurt, will improve digestion and relieve you of loose motions. In South India, Thailand, Indonesia etc – rice is a staple food and most of the dishes are made from some form of rice. Still, you will not find many obese people in these parts. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) is a nutrient found in brown rice, but not in polished white rice.

The correct way to have rice is to chew it to a fine paste. Over-cooked rice does not help, and neither does the one which has too many things thrown into it. While cooking, if you mix the rice with plenty of other things, you are just killing its nutritional value.

a) Do not mix any type of flour with the rice and then cook or deep fry it.
b) Do not add curd in rice flour and then ferment it.
c) Do not use leave rice overnight and use it the next morning
If you do any of these, it surely causes acidity, and increases Pitta Dosha.

Hence, Rice when taken in the right away actually helps you to stay light, improve liver metabolism and thereby increases your ability to reduce weight. If you have any clarifications, submit your health questions to us here.

    Thanks for your write-up. I have generally seen that a majority of people are needing to lose weight simply because they wish to show up slim in addition to looking attractive. Having said that, they do not often realize that there are many benefits just for losing weight in addition. Doctors declare that obese people come across a variety of illnesses that can be perfectely attributed to their excess weight. The good news is that people who definitely are overweight plus suffering from a variety of diseases can reduce the severity of their illnesses by way of losing weight. You possibly can see a continuous but marked improvement with health as soon as even a slight amount of weight loss is reached.

    I have got 1 recommendation for your webpage. It appears like there are a couple of cascading stylesheet troubles when opening a selection of web pages in google chrome as well as safari. It is operating alright in internet explorer. Possibly you can double check that.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    I have observed that over the course of constructing a relationship with real estate owners, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every single real estate exchange, a commission rate is paid. Eventually, FSBO sellers will not “save” the commission rate. Rather, they struggle to earn the commission by means of doing the agent’s task. In doing this, they shell out their money plus time to accomplish, as best they might, the obligations of an real estate agent. Those obligations include exposing the home via marketing, offering the home to prospective buyers, developing a sense of buyer urgency in order to trigger an offer, scheduling home inspections, controlling qualification check ups with the loan company, supervising maintenance, and aiding the closing of the deal.
