So when I wrote about my Endometriosis Diet, I got questions about the multigrain rice and I mentioned that you can find it in Asian supermarkets, etc. I guess that’s not an option for many of you and I forgot I knew another wonderful place for everyone for multigrain rice! – WHOLE FOODS
Have you noticed Whole Foods has that bin area where they sell bulk grains? They have grains, granolas, nuts, etc. there and I love, love, LOVE their grains section. It’s go everything you need. Today, I ran out of my Asian store bought rice and thought about being adventurous and mixing my own because my husband TMJ, a jaw problem where his jaw gets a sprain if he eats anything too chewy or hard, whatever. It’s really annoying because there are limited foods I get to cook at home that he’ll like while still healthy for me. I feel like I’m feeding a baby sometimes.
So the Asian store bought multigrain rice always has kidney beans or red beans, which take longer to cook than brown rice or wild rice, etc., that’s also included. So today, the “ah ha” went on in my head and I decided to mix my own multigrain rice.
Here are the components (I’m sure I’ll do something each time):
- Brown Rice 50%
- Mixed wild rice 20%
- Black wild rice 5%
- Millet 10%
- Split Peas 2%
- Quinoa 13%
1 cup rice to 2 cups water. High heat until it boils. Turn heat on low/medium, put cover on and cook for 1 hour more. Done! Perfect multigrain rice. Super yummy and healthy. Great for people with endometriosis, endometrioma, ovarian cyst, etc. It’s hormone and sugar level balancing and contains tons of fiber. Hurrah!
