Soon May, my non-rice month

Recommended Posts

HTM

This will be the 8th year that rice is not being served in my house in May.
It's only a month, the other 11 its rice in the house.
All eating less rice na the 11 other months a year. And none are "addicted" to rice more.

BTW We don't only eat white rice when we have rice.

My family switched to corn rice over a year ago.

They don't like it but at it.

They consume half as much corn rice as apposed to ganador rice .

Good for health and budget

It's always been boiled corn for my wife and me...historically common in the South of Cebu. I like it. My wife likes the edge bits that can be crispy. I suppose nowadays rice has become more common to eat for most though. The dogs munch their way through corn leftovers quite happily with some fish. They don' like rice! 

Have to watch the washing up, which is my duty as I can't cook. But as mt wife is boiling her own corn harvest at the moment it seems easier to wash up as the grinding isn't as fine as the shop bought corn. Maybe releases less starch, I dunno.

Once a week maybe potatoes...sometimes the sweet type or the purple type.

The only reason cornmeal would be healthier than rice is because they  don't like it so they don't eat as much. They are both grains with almost identical nutritional profiles:

Even though my wife is in the wholesale rice business and at any given time we have ten 55 kilo sacks of lcl rice in the house, she started feeding the family half/half brown rice and white rice...sometimes red rice....

I continue to eat very little rice, mostly potatoes...old habits die hard

Actually a Harvard study several years ago showed that eating Jasmin strands of rice, which is most common variety eaten here in the Philippines, if eaten more than 5 or more portions weekly actually increases the chance of type 2 diabetes by 17%. This is why we eat corn rice, brown rice, red rice and black rice in our household.

Jasmin isn't even in the top 20, the most common Tubigan. As for your study, I'd like to see a link to  it while I post some of my own:


"the combination of recommended amounts of main and vegetable side dishes with boiled white rice is beneficial for lowering postprandial glucose concentrations, with an increased incretin response".- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24507870


"rice protein can modify triglyceride metabolism, leading to an improvement of body weight and adiposity." - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22330327


"Cooked rice may prevent HF-induced fat accumulation by regulating lipid metabolism-related gene expression, and it may be a useful carbohydrate source for preventing nonalcoholic fatty liver disease." - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24456353


"rice consumption associated with reduced likelihood of being overweight or obese, 34% reduced risk of high blood pressure, 27% reduced likelihood of having an increased waist circumference, and 21% reduced risk of metabolic syndrome. Compared with non-rice eaters, rice eaters are less likely to have risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome; they are more likely to have an overall better diet quality" - http://journals.lww.com/nutritiontodayonline/Abstract/2010/11000/Diet_Quality_and_Markers_for_Human_Health_in_Rice.9.aspx

I was worried about the attitudes and behavior here around me
When some are addicted to rice or believe they going to die if they do not get rice 3 times a day,  it is very serious I feel.
That's why I started with this rice free month,  and there is no school in May..... no eating rice in school..
It is also easier to introduce variations in the diet, it is no longer the same they eat 3 times a day
May, no type of rice at all!

it does seem almost like an addiction, much better substitute would be steamed vegetables. Better but, speaking from experience, probably impossible.

some dishes are not right without the soft white rice. Beef steak for instance.

Do they have something like millet porridge here in restaurant? We had that with bao and beef etc, from northern china but mostly gone now.

sorry for the typo as I should have simply said white rice, I raise a long grain jasmin rice on our farm on Dinagat Island so I instinctively typed jasmin. Even horticulturist sometimes error.

As for the Harvard study:

   Now first study (May, 2014) you linked concluded: the combination of recommended amounts of main and vegetable side dishes with boiled white rice is beneficial for lowering postprandial glucose concentrations, with an increased incretin response, when compared with white rice alone. Seems to be suggesting to eat white rive in moderation with a main and vegetables, is healthier than just loading up on the rice.

   The next two links were rice studies conducted on test mice in Feb, 2012 and Feb. 2014. And the forth link was conducted Nov.-Dec. 2010 touted all the health benefits (including reducing type 2 Diabetes) using as evidence from the most recent (1999-2004) National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. 

    Harvard study. Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) in June 2010 showed the consumption of more than 7 portions a week increased the risk of type 2 Diabetes by 17%. Odd as they both can not be right. I personally will choose to err on caution and believe the Harvard studies as I have seen any credible documentation refuting their findings.They suggest the reduction of white rice consumption by substituting brown rices. I also include red and black rices as I believe in a diverse diet. We eat corn rice which is merely finally shredded young kernels which contains nutrients such as: Energy (150.00 cal), protein (1.600 g), fat (0.60 g), Carbohydrates (11.40 g), Calcium (2.00 mg), phosphorus (47.00 mg), Fiber (0.40 g), iron (0.30 mg), Vit A (30.00 RE), Vit B1 (0.07mg), Vit B2 (0.04 mg) , Vit C (3.00 mg), Niacin0, (60mg). We still eat new-harvest Jasmin rice during harvest but always in moderation.

   Being on the sea our diet consist of fish and chicken with a diverse selection of fresh vegetables and fruits. We regulate the amount of pork and beef we consume. I believe moderation and diversity within one's diet is the key to good health.
