Pair your rice with nutritious dishes or cook it with things that enhance its nutritional value
There is almost a fear amongst fitness freaks about having rice. White rice is seen as the one dish that everyone unequivocally looks down upon. Even the tiniest weight gain and bloating is pinned upon rice and it is advertised as a complete no-no if someone wants to lose weight. But how much of it is the truth and how much of it is chinese whispers? Well, nothing, if had in moderation, actually makes you miraculously gain weight. Similarly, a bowl of rice will do nothing to take your rice off track. But again, portion control and moderation are key, along with having a balanced diet. Pair your rice with nutritious dishes or cook it with things that enhance its nutritional value.
So, how do we manage to make rice, eat in moderation and also make it healthy enough for people who measure every single carb that they consume? By adding lots of protein and nutrients to it and what better than soyabean – the richest source of vegetarian protein! Soyabean is very high in fibre, protein, omega-3 fatty acid along with being low in saturated fats and cholesterol free. It is also lactose free and a great source of antioxidants. The nutritional benefits of soyabean are immense and they are the best addition to your rice. Now, what if we also throw in a leafy green like spinach to the mix? Spinach is helpful in improving eye health, is full of iron, potassium and magnesium and boosts the immunity system. Very importantly, spinach is known to curb appetite, so it is the best addition to rice.
Let us see how to combine all three and make a healthy soyabean and spinach rice for weight loss in a few simple steps.
With this recipe, you can be assured that the rice you are eating is nutritious and there is no sense of cheating or guilt when you have it. It is filling, healthy and lip-smacking. So, enjoy a bowl of soyabean and spinach rice while on your diet and stay satiated the entire day!
