I don’t eat a lot of rice, and when I do cook it, I use brown rice. That doesn’t seem to bother me.
Today we went out to lunch at 99 Restaurant. I was looking for the healthiest thing I could get (remember I am not fond of fish), so I chose the grilled sirloin tips. The sides were rice pilaf and squash. I only ate about 1/2 cup of the rice, but it was white rice.
Well darn if I don’t have the fiercest of cravings from this afternoon on. It’s terrible! And it’s not just sweet cravings, but fat cravings as well. Yargh.
So, needless to say I have munched my way over calories for the day. At least I got in some exercise this morning.
Now I have to really think hard before having white rice again. Funny how something seemingly innocent can trigger horrible cravings. Worse than sugar does to me.
