The answer is …Yes.
Brown Rice 101 is an informative piece I have written for Zenfully Delicious (a wonderful online resource for persons handling chronic conditions like gluten-sensitivities). This article should answer most of your questions on brown rice and help make it a part of your daily meals.
Try my recipes Indian-style Brown Rice Vegetable Pulao (makes an easy weekday meal) and Brown Rice Cranberry Salad (served warm, this wholesome salad is a great option for large gatherings.) I prefer to use brown ‘basmati’ rice which is easily available in most ethnic/health food stores, but any brown rice works. These recipes are healthy and above-all, delicious. Worth trying out.
