Cool Rice for the Summer

While reading up on nutritional info about various grains for our recent Grains Workshop, I stumbled on some interesting research. It indicates that grains, particularly rice, when cooked and then cooled might have less calories than the HOT versions. The grains would also be lower on the Glycemic Index, a scale that measures how a food affects your blood sugar. 

Summer is here, so it's a great time for making chilled whole grain salads.  We have just added a tasty recipe for Brown Rice Greek Salad to our Recipe Page
