Would you like some Yellow Rice with that?

Healthy Living, Recipe

As you know, I am still out of town in DC. I wanted to share some of my older, first posts. This is one of my favorites…..YELLOW RICE

When I make a stew, I ALWAYS make “yellow” basmati rice as the side. My husband does not understand why I always make this “yellow” rice. He eats it, but with comments and smirks …. In other words, “why don’t you make “white” rice?”. Finally, yesterday, I realized that my husband thought yellow and white rice were two completely different types of rice. I realized that he must not be the only one who had that thought. So I would like to clarify that when rice is “yellow” it is because TUMERIC is added to “white” rice. The rice is actually not “yellow” by nature.

So what is TUMERIC???

Tumeric belongs to the ginger family. It is has been used for thousands of years.

I am also going to tell you why I ALWAYS make “yellow” rice:

  1.  Its easy! I sprinkle 1 teaspoon of tumeric for 1 cup of rice.
  2. It has antiseptic and antibacterial properties…(you can even use it directly on a scrape or burn)
  3. It helps treat people who have psoriasis and can help with various benign tumors
  4. It can help prevent prostate and breast cancer (there are numerous studies on this!!!)
  5. Chinese medicine has been using it for 100′s of years for depression

There are more reasons why tumeric is one of my favorite spices but these are the main ones. I say sprinkle tumeric on everything. It can only help, and my husband is going to have to eat white rice when we are not eating at home :)

    Haha! That’s funny! I love yellow rice with my favorite bean–gandules. And I like white rice with pinto beans. So strange, huh? :D But yes, I agree, Tumeric can only help!

    As a breast cancer survivor, I am definitely on board with eating turmeric! Turmeric is also great for reducing inflammation. Turmeric also works well w/barley. I make Lemon Barley with Broccoli and Almonds

    Had no clue all the benefits of TUMERIC. I have made yellow rice before with it and will keep on doing it. Thanks for sharing.
