Wild Rice

Just thought I would throw up a old but new idea for changing up your healthy carbs. A nutty flavored rice that is amazingly good for you.

Serving Size: 1 cup (8 oz) cooked
166 calories
1 g fat
35 g carbs (good complex carbs)
3 g dietary fiber
7 g protein!
 This grain also contain all essential amino acids except one that can be achieved by consuming a complimentary food such as corn or mushrooms. Eating wild rice with a meat protein (chicken) will also enhance the complete amino acid ratio of that meal.

Super chewy! Great in soups, salads, and by it self.
