1 cup organic brown rice
Brown rice is high in nutrients, while low in calories, making it a very healthy food. Each 1/2 cup of brown rice is equal to 1 serving of whole grains. Whole grains like brown rice are rich in fiber, which may reduce heart disease and risks for certain cancers, while also promoting good digestion and a healthy weight. Brown rice is also rich in essential minerals including magnesium and manganese, as well as bioactive phytonutrients such as lignans, phytoestrogens and phenolic compounds. Furthermore, brown rice is a gluten-free food that contains no trans fat or cholesterol and only trace amounts of fat and sodium.
