Products we LOVE in a pack: Rice Plus
By: The Food Coach
Here's a product i am REALLY, REALLY excited about (yes, i am shouting!) 4 X the fibre of regular brown rice
RICE PLUS is a great addition to a meal in place of regular rice. It is not only nourishing, adding extra nutrients and fibre to the rice, but it is delicious. It has a wonderful subtle nutty flavor and added texture. Just cook it as you would normal brown medium grain rice.
What's so great about it? Well it contains extra nutritional benefits from powerful whole rice and grains as well as:
30% more protein than regular brown rice
26% less carbohydrate than regular brown rice
Brown rice is a source of many beneficial nutrients, including fibre, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B-6. The process that produces brown rice removes only the outermost layer, the hull, of the rice kernel leaving the nutritious bran layer intact.

Like brown rice, red rice is higher in fibre than white rice and is rich in B vitamins, iron and calcium. The reddish colour is due to an antioxidant called anthocyanin which is known to have health promoting properties.
Also known as purple rice, black rice was traditionally served to the nobility throughout Asian history. High in nutritional value, it contains 18 amino acids, zinc, copper, carotene, anthocyanin and several important vitamins. The grain has a mild nutty flavour and similar fibre content to brown rice.
Black Sesame Seeds
Sesame seeds may be the oldest condiment known to man. They are highly valued for their oil which is exceptionally resistant to rancidity. Not only are sesame seeds a very good source of manganese and copper, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and
