Nutrient-Rich and Yummy Brown Rice Recipe – With a Hint of Sweet!

Yummy Brown Rice

Brown Rice Recipe With Yummy Apple Cinnamon

​Looking for a new way to prepare rice? This yummy brown rice recipe has a hint of sweetness, making it a great dessert, side dish, or a meal on its own, such as a healthy breakfast.

Yummy Brown Rice Recipe

What’s the perfect, nutritious sweet fix that doesn’t have empty calories?

A brown rice recipe made with apples and cinnamon!

It’s loaded with protein and fiber but also a great snack for your sweet tooth. And most importantly, there’s nothing artificial or unnatural about this food. It’s all good stuff that your body can benefit from!

Scientific Study on Brown Rice and Its Healthy Properties

There is something special about brown rice that makes it a nutritious food.

The Harvard School of Public Health reported that compared with white rice, brown rice is indeed much healthier.

In white rice, both the germ and the bran are no longer intact, which means all it has is the endospore. On the other hand, brown rice has three parts in its kernel - the germ, bran, and the endosperm. All of these parts make it highly nutritious because the fiber and the essential nutrients remain.

It is only the outer hull that’s taken away from a brown rice kernel.

What about “enriched” white rice? Is it more nutritious than brown rice?

What about “enriched” white rice? Is it more nutritious than brown rice?

You have probably heard about enriched white rice and even saw it in labels and packages.

But while it does have nutrients added back to the white rice such as iron and B-vitamins, the fiber is still not there.

Since brown rice still has the endosperm, bran, and germ in the kernel, it’s got not just the fiber and protein but all the other nutrients added to “enriched” types of white rice.

You still get more from eating brown rice!

Low GI Means High Nutrition

Now let’s talk about GI or the Glycemic Index of food.

The higher the GI, the quicker the release of energy. And yes, the higher your blood sugar level will get because of that.

So the goal is to eat foods that have a low GI to give you a slow and steady supply of energy while keeping your blood sugar in check.

White rice has a higher GI at 64 while brown rice is at 55.

This is why if you’re diabetic or you’re watching your weight, it is best to go for low GI foods like brown rice to achieve your health goals. 

Nutrition Profile of Brown Rice

Nutrition Profile of Brown Rice

So it’s got a low GI and more fiber.

What else is there in brown rice??

Plenty!

It is a low-calorie food with about 216 calories a cup, yet it’s high in fiber to keep you satiated for hours.

There is absolutely no trace of cholesterol or trans fat in brown rice, but it’s got just a little bit of sodium and fat in it.

As for the nutrients in it, brown rice is rich in iron, protein, some B-vitamins, and fiber.

It’s also got magnesium, folate, and selenium, which are all important minerals that support healthy biological functions and keep your immune system in excellent condition.

What about Arsenic Levels in Brown Rice?

It may sound alarming but there have been studies that stated the presence of arsenic in some foods… Including brown rice.

The reason for this is that brown rice absorbs water as it grows. With water that’s contaminated with arsenic, this can be a frightening situation for those who are fond of eating rice.

But according to an analysis of more than 1000 samples of rice conducted by the FDA, it showed that while there was arsenic found in these rice samples, the level was just too low. The very low levels of arsenic in brown rice do not pose serious, long-term health concerns.

There are indeed more foods out there with dangerous amounts of chemicals that some people could be eating and consuming brown rice is not a problem at all.

Tips on How to Cook Brown Rice for Best Results

Tips on How to Cook Brown Rice for Best Results

Now that you know more about the nutrients in brown rice and that the arsenic levels in it are not even a cause of concern, let’s get on to the next question:

How do you cook brown rice?

It’s actually pretty simple.

Just like with any other grains, you need to rinse brown rice thoroughly, quite a few times, with clean water.

Wash it twice or thrice to make sure any dirt, as well as stray debris, is removed completely.

Once your rice is clean and washed carefully, you are ready to start cooking. Just pour 2 cups of water to 1 cup of brown rice. When the liquid has leveled down, you can reduce the heat, keep the pot covered for around 45 minutes and let it simmer.

If you want to cook it a little faster, you can soak the rice overnight, give it another rinse before you add water and cook it for 30 minutes.

But overall, brown rice takes a bit longer to cook because of the germ and bran layers in it. At the same time, it’s better to have these in your rice kernel because of the fiber and nutrients in these parts of brown rice.

Oh and yeah, these layers make brown rice chewier and tastier than white rice!

In fact, it’s one of the healthiest foods on the planet, so it’s only fair that you feed your body with this highly nutritious green veggie.

It’s packed with vitamins and minerals, and gives your body loads of benefits including asthma prevention, regulating blood pressure levels, reducing the risk of cancer, and boosting your immune system.

Other fascinating facts about kale include:

  • ​Protects against diabetes because of its high fiber and antioxidant levels.
  • ​Improves digestion and heart health.

Fresh Kale Salad

Do you prefer drinking your veggies?

Or would you rather gobble them up as salads or side dishes?

Either way, kale is great for these things.

Or you can eat it raw to keep all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants locked in.

Add in cooked kale to your main dishes.

Steam it, lightly stir-fry it, add it to soups… These are just some of the ways to incorporate a serving of kale to your daily meals. Since it doesn’t have a strong taste, you can easily add it into your dishes and not mess up the desired flavor of your recipes.

Be sure to enjoy a serving or more of kale each day to supply your body with all the essential nutrients and health benefits it needs.

8 Biblical Weight Loss Encouragements From Scripture

​​8 Biblical Weight Loss Encouragements
From Scripture

Weight Loss Encouragements

​People ask me repeatedly, “What is the first step to getting healthy and losing weight?”

Answer – a simple three letter word that used to press on our nerves when asked repeatedly by our three-year-old children – “Why?”

Without understanding our why – the because has no merit.

​Why do you want to lose weight or get healthy?

​Is it a temporary why – graduations, weddings, class reunions?

Or is it a more personal reason – my health demands it; the doctor said I should or my spouse would like me to.

Even these reasons are not sustainable for long term health. In fact the short term gain or loss of weight can be more detrimental than a long term weight loss that stays off.

How do we search deep within our soul that no fudge brownie can deter us from our why?

As I review my years of struggle and as I consult with others trying to be set free of weight problems it all comes down to this – a deep, personal, gratifying, glorifying why.

​8 Weight Loss Encouragement Steps From Scripture

​A why that responds with answers such as these:

Because He has loved us with an everlasting love. (Jeremiah 31:3)

Because we are made in His image. (Genesis 1:27)

Because He is the Almighty Rapha Healer. (Exodus 15:26)

Because He has called us to walk (eat and care for our body) in a worthy manner. (Ephesians 4:1)

Because we have been given grace. (Ephesians 4:7)

Because we have been bought with a price to glorify God with our bodies. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Because we have the truth in how to live our lives. (Ephesians 4:15-16)

Because we are no longer under a law (food rules set by man) but under grace. (Romans 6:14)

There are hundreds of more verses that share how much God loves us and why we should honor God with our body.

When this ‘because’ sinks deep in our soul our why will be strong and food addictions, overeating, eating wrong foods will make us cringe when they take away the blessing of why.

​So what is the first step for a Christian to Lose Weight?

​So what is the first step for a Christian to Lose Weight?

​It is knowing why life matters to the Lord and eating (living) accordingly.

When it is meal time – let’s ask ourselves “What would satisfy us nutritionally and how much does my body require to be kept sustained till the next meal time?”

Including good quality protein like tuna, eggs, organic cheese or other solid proteins will bring satisfaction for hours. Add to this a high-quality oil such as avocados, nuts, and seeds, then top it off with some cellular celebrations of cruciferous vegetables.

The Treasures of Healthy Living Bible Study is another great study to marinate in all of God’s Word to understand how God’s design brings satisfaction.

The stronger the why the better the success and the more our bodies will glorify Him.

This is the WHY DIET and it will set you free for life!

 “For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace” (Romans 8:6).

A Little Bit of a St. Patrick’s Day History For You

Why do we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Who’s St. Patrick?

And… What’s with the green-colored food, outfits, decor, drinks this time of the year?

St. Patrick’s Day is an annual religious and cultural celebration held every 17th of March. It’s a holiday in honor of St. Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint.

Who had an AMAZING heart for missions!

So don’t be surprised if you hear a lot of Irish music, Irish lore, Irish food, and everything Irish during this holiday.

Irish expats brought this annual holiday to the United States, and it’s become a part of the modern traditions in America beginning in 1762. Pretty long time!

As for the question of why people wear green on St. Patrick’s day…

It’s become a tradition for people to don green clothing, accessories, hats, and shamrocks because according to legends, St. Patrick used this three-leaved plant to educate pagans about the Holy Trinity.

But here’s the modern history, sort of funny story behind the green outfits on this holiday.

Irish-Americans in the early 1700s circulated this folklore that green clothing helps them hide from leprechauns. So if you’re not wearing anything but green, watch out - a leprechaun might spot you and pinch you. LOL.

That’s just a story, of course, but what stayed is the tradition of wearing green and eating green on St. Patrick’s Day.

What Makes This St. Patrick’s Day Cookies Recipe Better Than the Rest

This St. Patrick’s Day cookie recipe is unique because of how it gets its festive color.

And how protein-rich it is.

These cookies are loaded with protein, making them super special and highly nutritious.

The secret is in the flour used and some bananas thrown in.

We use almond flour here, which is a protein-rich flour made from ground up raw almonds, so you can enjoy the protein goodness, plus your antioxidants and minerals from these highly nutritious nuts.

As a bonus, there’s the delicate almond flavor to the flour, too!

So you can munch on these St. Patrick’s Day cookies without the guilt because you know you’re not consuming empty calories that go straight to your belly.

Here are the flours I used:

But in addition to the peanuts, these no-bake peanut butter bars also contain a special ingredient.

It takes the protein level way up higher, so you can power up and thrive with every bite of these bars.

But you don’t have to keep doing that.

These no-bake peanut butter bars are just what you need for a quick snack without the nasty stuff or extra calories or zero nutrients.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips (for full chocolate flavor add to warm peanut butter mix or wait until cool for chocolate chip chunks)
  • 1 cup oats or quick oats
  • cup protein powder
  • 1 ½ cup flax cereal

Instructions

  • Heat up the peanut butter and honey. Add vanilla.
  • Mix everything up in a bowl.
  • If the cereals are too chunky, you can chop them up or grind them before mixing in with the rest of the ingredients. I use a “mini-mill” that grinds up these chunky cereals in seconds, so they're ready to go!
  • Make sure all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly. 
  • Press into an 8x8 pan or scoop small amounts of the mixture into a shaped tray (like in the video) for a little more fun. 
  • Let the bars firm up in the refrigerator. They should be ready to eat in a few hours.
  • Just take them out of the tray or cut into squares when they’re ready, place them in baggies, and this no-bake peanut butter bar is great as a grab-and-go meal for you or healthy breakfast bar, dessert, or a great recipe for kids.

Additional Tips on How to Make the Best No-Bake Protein Peanut Butter Bars

​Just a few more things about this no-bake protein bars recipe.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, these bars contain protein powder.

But let me just remind you that when buying protein powder, you need to be cautious and really do your homework first.

Not all protein powders are created equal, and some may not even come from reputable sources.

Be sure to read the labels and always look for organic, non-GMO sources of ingredients. Otherwise, you run the risk of consuming pesticide-heavy soy protein that’s only going to do more harm than good to your body.

For me, there’s only one I trust and that’s Shaklee Soy Protein Powder. I have high regard for this brand because their ingredients are all natural, organic, and proven to be non-GMO. They also use just the finest ingredients, so you can rest easy knowing that your body is receiving only the good stuff.

So there you have it - a truly amazing recipe that will keep you satiated and ready to face each day with so much life, energy, and vitality. Enjoy this dish and I look forward to hearing your feedback on how this recipe turned out for you!

So let’s get our wok and stove ready and cook up this awesome dish that’s bound to be an instant hit and constant favorite at home!

What’s Great about Rice?

​Before we start cooking, let’s talk a bit about rice.

Sure, vegetable fried rice sounds like one tasty meal but what exactly is good about this dish. Why rice??

Rice is a staple in Asia, and you’re most likely to find a majority of rice dishes there instead of wheat-based meals.

If you’ve got wheat allergies, rice is the best food to eat because it’s gluten-free.

By adding various ingredients to your rice such as vegetables, you can enjoy a nice nutritious and delicious meal.

Speaking of nutrients…

Let’s talk more about the nutritional benefits you can get from eating rice.

Fiber and Minerals in Fried Rice

Fiber and Minerals in Fried Rice

​Rice is an amazing source of fiber, specifically brown rice.

As for white rice, it has some fiber in it but much less than what brown rice has. Rice has a high amount of minerals including iron and calcium. It also has some vitamins such as riboflavin, thiamine, niacin, and vitamin D.

With the high fiber content in brown rice, you will stay full longer by eating this nutritious food.

Combine it with vegetables, you’ve got a fiber-rich meal that helps curb your appetite and prevent you from bingeing or eating unhealthy snacks.

Rice Helps with Disease Prevention

Did you know that fried rice recipes can actually help in controlling some diseases?

Brown rice, for instance, contains neurotransmitters - and a lot of it - that is beneficial in the prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease. It supports brain and nerve health, protecting you from the occurrence of this degenerative disease.

Another thing about rice that makes it powerful in controlling certain diseases is its antioxidant component.

Rice has an abundance of antioxidants that keep your heart healthy. It reduces your risk of acquiring heart disease, cardiovascular ailments, and stroke.

It’s also worth noting that rice husk is a good diuretic. This makes it beneficial for the prevention and cure of dysentery, diarrhea, and similar medical conditions.

A Special Fried Rice Dish Provides Energy

A Special Fried Rice Dish Provides Energy

Feeling a little low on energy?

You need a boost from rice!

Rice contains carbohydrates, which gives your body fuel to carry on throughout the day.

It’s also interesting to note that there are long chains of abundant complex carbohydrates in rice. What this means is that it takes some time to break down and be released in your body. With the gradual and slow release of carbohydrates in rice, this allows you to receive a good amount of energy consistently.

For people with diabetes, rice is a preferable choice as it is a complex carbohydrate source instead of simple carbohydrate (such as in sweets, sodas, pastries). Your blood levels remain well-regulated, and it prevents the spike and dip of insulin levels in the body.

​Now that we know what’s good about fried rice, you’re probably excited to make one yourself!

The Healthiest Mixed Berry Muffin Recipe – No Sweeteners Added!

The Healthiest Mixed Berry Muffin Recipe - No Sweeteners Added!

​Sink in your teeth into this super healthy, so yummy, and easy-to-make muffin. This mixed berry muffin is just the recipe you need to enjoy a truly perfect, nutritious muffin!

​Really wanting to eat a muffin without wrecking your healthy diet?

Then this mixed berry muffin recipe will let you do just that!

Sink your teeth in the amazing goodness of these healthy fruits in this amazing muffin recipe featuring tasty berries!

And here’s the takeaway - it doesn’t even have any artificial sweeteners added. It’s sweet but the sweeteners I use are all-natural and loaded with vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber.

How great is that?!

So let’s go get our baking mode on and make this berry muffin recipe that you and your family can feast on!

Berry Muffins are More Than A Snack

​What you’ll love about this mixed berry muffin recipe is it’s more than a baked goodie or a dessert.

It’s actually a vitamin in a muffin tin!

Why?

Because these berry muffins contain fresh berries that are packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, protein, and several essential nutrients your body needs. It’s pretty much like a supplement - but filling for your tummy at the same time.

I call this recipe the “Berry-Berry Muffins”. Yep, you can’t have enough of just one berry!

I make it all the time in our Flavor of Grace conferences and it has become a constant favorite because of its natural sweetness and nutritious goodness.

This recipe is proof that you can try different ways of cooking and different flavors that you can mix together to create one amazing recipe that’s great for your health.

Protein and Fiber Muffin Recipe

​I’m a major proponent of consuming high fiber and high protein foods each day.

These are two important nutrients that help your body repair and replenish cells and tissues through protein while eliminating toxins with the help of fiber. It’s also through fiber that your digestive system and metabolic processes remain in great condition.

So why is this high in protein?

The secret is in the flour…

The blueberry muffin mix that we’ll make contains almond meal and chia seeds, which are not only high in protein but rich in fiber, too!

If you’re wondering about the almond meal being a little bit pricey…

Don’t worry, there’s a way to go around the price point without eliminating the almond meal from this recipe.

In fact, you can make your own almond meal to save more money. Almond meal can be super expensive in stores!

But by making your own, you can slash the price and still create this particular ingredient needed in this recipe.

To make your own almond meal, just use your Vitamix or any high-powered blender, blend up the almonds and in a few minutes, you have your almond meal ready to use for our mixed berry muffins!

Oh yeah, one more thing…

This recipe has white beans, too.

That makes it extra protein-y and fiber-y. In other words, super healthy goodness with every bite of these berry muffins!

So without further ado, let’s start baking and make ourselves some delicious blueberry muffins.

Mixed Berry Muffin Recipe

​Berry muffins are tasty and highly nutritious at the same time. So if you’re craving something sweet without the guilt, this raspberry-blueberry muffin recipe is the perfect thing to make.

Here are the ingredients and procedure on how to dish out this recipe.

An Easy Daniel Fast Pizza Recipe? YES!

Make Your Very Own Veggie Pizza with Healthy Sprouted Tortilla Crust

​Craving pizza but on the Daniel Fast? This Daniel fast pizza recipe is easy and fast!

Daniel Fast Vegetable Recipe

​Pizza is a classic dish that’s in many people’s top 10 favorite meal of all time.

But if the regular kind is not exactly the healthy kind, then you should make your own veggie pizza that’s much more nutritious and more wholesome for your body!

How?

Ever heard of sprouted tortillas for a vegetable pizza crust?

Sounds exotic? Maybe.

But by using Ezekiel tortillas or sprouted tortillas, you’re not just getting the good stuff but you can totally give in to your pizza craving without the guilt.

Now we’re talking!

Dish out this veggie pizza recipe for your Daniel fast and discover how pizza can be tasty AND nutritious at the same time.

Ezekiel Tortillas and Bread Quick Facts

​Since we’re using sprouted tortillas for our crust, maybe it would help to give you a bit of a background on this ingredient.

As the name implies, this tortilla variety contains sprouted grains. When we talk about “sprouted” this means that the bread has undergone a process that helped release its potent enzymes and nutrients for your body’s health.

To sprout these grains, they are soaked in water, which then causes their green sprout to grow. During this process, the chemicals and enzymes present in the grains help nourish the endosperm and the wheat germ.

As a result, the nutrient value of the grains increases, including a higher amount of vitamin B and C. While whole wheat bread (regular) also contains some of these ingredients, you can certainly get more from sprouted grains.

It is also through sprouting that you allow for the release of anti-nutrients in the grains. These components prevent your body from absorbing nutrients from food. By activating the parts of your body that are responsible for metabolizing the nutrients you obtain, you can live a healthier life.

By eating sprouted bread, you are allowing your body to easily absorb essential minerals including zinc, copper, iron, and magnesium.

Ezekiel Bread as a Complete Protein Source

Ezekiel Bread as a Complete Protein Source

​Unlike other types of bread, Ezekiel tortillas or sprouted bread does not have any flour content. Instead, it’s got legumes and grains. It has a combination of healthy ingredients including organic soybeans, lentils, spelt, millet, wheat, and barley.

No wonder Ezekiel bread is a powerhouse of nutrients!

It is a complete protein, just like milk and eggs - and has all the 9 essential amino acids.

Interestingly, the bread got its name from the Bible verse in Ezekiel 4:9 “Take also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils and millet, and spelt and put them in one vessel….”

This nutritious bread is inspired by God’s own recipe on what makes a truly delicious, healthy, and satisfying bread!

Sprouted Tortillas Vs. Whole Wheat

​When it comes to a higher amount of vitamins and minerals, you can get that from eating sprouted bread than your regular flour-based bread.

The germination process that Ezekiel bread goes through makes the vitamins and minerals in this bread more easily available and more readily absorbed by the body.

Although whole wheat bread has protein, fiber, and vitamins, there’s much more that sprouted grains can offer. In fact, a slice of this bread contains 4 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber - and just 80 calories.

With a low-calorie, fiber- and protein-dense bread, you’re definitely getting more from Ezekiel or sprouted tortillas or bread.

And if you use this type of bread in your veggie pizza, toast, and other bread recipes, you are maximizing the health benefits your body receives.

Healthy Veggie Pizza Recipe

Ready to power up and take your veggie pizza to the next level?

In this recipe, we’re using Ezekiel tortillas to fuel the body with a much higher level of nutrients than an ordinary pizza crust can give. Plus, combined with the vegetables in this pizza, this makes it a truly nutritious meal your body can benefit from!

Here we go… Let’s start making this amazing veggie pizza!

The Best Gluten-Free Almond Cookies Recipe – Bible Diet Approved!

The Best Gluten-Free Almond Cookies - Bible Diet Approved! 

It was love at first bite when I finally dialed in these gluten-free almond cookies. I was really missing out until I tried these crispy almond flour cookies!

With so many of my clients needing GF I knew I could come up with a delicious treat. I used the one cookie test method and created a cookie that satisfies and a cookie with a substance that is sink-your-teeth-in delicious.

And that’s how my very own gluten-free almond cookies came to be!

How to Make Perfectly Crispy Almond Flour Cookies

​Almond delicious GF cookies require some tips and tricks to get it right.

Let me tell you how I came up with these gluten-free cookies:

I studied other GF recipes and thought "that is no way delicious". But I learned from what they were doing and then started my own experiment.

I mixed up the batter - so far it was ok. Then I did the one cookie test - which is to bake just one cookie to make sure the ratio of ingredients creates a perfect looking cookie.

The problem was I was so eager to taste it I immediately took it off the cookie sheet from the oven. The crispy almond flour cookies crumbled like sand!

The taste - that was delicious but eating crumbs out of your hands is not a cookie. It is a crumble.

So I tried some more in the oven - again - crumbled!

Since I had mixed up a full batch of dough I decided to go ahead and bake them all and then contemplate later what to do with all the crumbs. I could always make a fruit crumble dessert or use it to top yogurt. No wasted time or money.

But I needed cookies for our Baking Class.

The Secret to Making No-Crumble Eggless Almond Cookies...

amazing-gluten-free-cookies-on-pan

The next morning I figured I might as well remove that last tray of cookies I let sit the night before.
I got my bowl ready to catch all the crumbs.

Only there were no crumbs. When I removed the cookies from the tray they were perfect. The cooling had caused the cookie to set into a soft, well-held-together, perfect Almond Delicious GF Cookies!

Yea - I was so happy. And yes I know I said this already but they were truly delicious.

Additional Tips to Make the Best Sugar-Free Almond Cookies

gluten-free-cookie-mix

Milling your own flours is the best way to keep them fresh.

Here are some tips on how to mill flours you need to use for this gluten-free almond cookies recipe:

Buckwheat - can be bought in kernels from co-ops, health-conscious grocery stores or you can use buckwheat cereal since it is only buckwheat cracked.

The buckwheat can be milled in the Nutrimill (Harvest, Nutrimill Plus and Nutrimill Classic). If you are not familiar with buckwheat don't let its name fool you. It is not in the wheat family but instead is an herb.

Oat flour can be easily made in a dry blender. Use oat groats, rolled oats or even quick oats.

Almonds are easy to make your own flour. Add almonds to a blender (make sure it is dry inside). Then blend until the consistency is as you desire. There may be a few flakes of the almond larger than the flour but that makes the cookies even better.

So there you have it - my gluten-free almond cookies recipe and a few techniques to keep it perfect and just the way you like your cookie. Enjoy this recipe and let me know how it worked out for you!

Gluten-Free Almond Cookies Recipe

​After all that trial and error to make these almond delicious GF cookies, I finally nailed it and you can now enjoy these gluten-free cookies with the right texture, taste, and crunch!

Here is my almond delicious GF cookies recipe and the steps to making them perfect:
