I promised that I will bring up some myths about healthy eating. One of those is: "healthy eating/ cooking takes too much time". I may surprise you but none of us spends more than 45 minutes with preparing a meal. My husband is often the kitchen fairy ;) so believe me most things we cook need to be simple and fast. He even joked that we were faster than McDo ;) Btw we never go there, so we don't really know how fast they are in practice.
I would like to show you something simple I made today:
Red rice, broccoli, broccoli burger
Sometimes you can find red rice as supplement so I was really curious about how it tastes. It is really delicious and looks actually nice on your plate ;) I would definitely encourage all of you to try it. One thing may be difficult: it takes 45 minutes to cook it in water. So this is why our meal needed 45 minutes !;)
The guilty one is red rice. It will compensate you so much if you choose this type of rice!
This is a nice summary why red rice is interesting: https://food.ndtv.com/food-drinks/white-rice-brown-rice-or-red-rice-which-one-is-the-healthiest-747933
" The red variety gets its rich colour from an antioxidant called anthocyanins, which are also found in deep purple or reddish fruits and vegetables. The compound is believed to have properties that can reduce inflammation, allergy, prevent risks of cancer and help in weight management. The manganese present in both varieties helps in strengthening metabolism, while magnesium helps in migraine, lowers blood pressure as well as risks of heart attacks. Along with calcium, magnesium helps in maintaining healthy bones and teeth, and prevents risks of arthritis and osteoporosis. Selenium on the other hand protects the body against infections. "
I hope I convinced you to try out this nutritious rice type;)
The broccoli we steamed and the burger we put in a special burger maker without any oil. This way our meal was without any saturated fats. We added a bit of pumpkin sead oil later ( cold).
I will share with you in another post about the benefits of the artichokes ( see the salad next to this text as a teaser.
Believe me, once you start exploring how many different healthy food types exist, a new world will open up for you and your family!
