I recently did the video Can White Rice Be Part Of A Healthy Diet, Ep107, and some people posted questions about rice and heartburn. I actually have a few suggestion for those that get heartburn or acid reflux after eating rice or meals that have rice. Sometimes it’s the type of rice that causes the issues, other times it might be what you are eating rice with and/or at what time of day. In today’s video I go through all my suggestions including the one rice I feel is the easiest to digest, and which types of rice to stay away from!
I once did a video talking about my husband’s diet, how he eats a traditional Indonesian diet of white rice, vegetables and some sort of animal or vegetable protein three times a day, everyday. Someone wrote me asking what my opinion of white rice is, is it really all that unhealthy as they say it is in the West, or is it ok to eat it as part of a healthy diet? Half the world’s population eats a rice-based diet (similar to what my husband’s eats), and they certainly aren’t eating brown rice or other whole grain rices, so is white rice all that bad? Here’s my opinion!!
