100 Calories of Forbidden Rice

Forbidden Rice

Ah rice, how tasty you are. Unfortunately, rice is ridiculously high in calories. Approximately 35g dry is 100 calories.This is less than white rice at approximately 126 calories. Forbidden rice is purple, which looks beautiful on the plate.

Rice was one of the foods I missed the most when I was dieting. It was not filling and used up too many of my allotted daily calories, so I nixed it.

    Brown rice maybe a suitable replacement for this. It has slighty higher calories than white rice, but the fiber and vitamins content are much higher. Great choice for those who are dieting.

      Thanks for sharing that info and for the posted info about rice at your site. I’ve never been fond of brown rice’s texture or taste, unfortunately. However, if one is on a diet, eating a food that tastes so-so might be a smart move.
