Fit Food: The Benefits of Brown Rice

Why eat this super food? It’s high in fiber and can help you up your whole grain intake. Here, six delicious ways to eat it.
Brown rice makes a great side dish for lean proteins like chicken or salmon. To make it more flavorful, substitute low-sodium chicken broth for the cooking water. (Rule of thumb: use twice as much liquid as rice—for example, two cups of broth for one cup of rice.) The rice may take a while to cook—about 45 minutes—but you don’t have to play an active role. Once the both boils, add your rice, reduce to a simmer, cover, and walk away.
