Resistant Starch Rice For Fueling Your Gut Bacteria
Cooked and cooled rice is a good source of resistant starch to fuel up your healthy gut bacteria. If you can tolerate white rice, and you’re still not sure about adding it to your healthy diet, some scientific research has found that cooked and cooled white rice turns into a resistant starch when cooked and cooled. The cooled rice has also turned out to be lower in calories than the rice that’s just been cooked. Rice is also said to be a safe starch for those who can have it with no ill effects. The rice in this recipe has been cooked with coconut oil, cooled in the fridge overnight, then fried in coconut and garlic with avocado added on.
Optimize The Benefits Of Resistant Starch Rice
You can optimize benefits to your resistant starch rice by cooking it in bone broth. You can also add a tablespoon or two of apple cider vinegar which is said to have prebiotic properties. You can also use butter instead of coconut oil to fry the rice in, with both the oils being good for healing the gut lining.
Cooking Resistant Starch Rice
Cook some rice in your preferred method. Add about a tablespoon of coconut oil to the water you’re using to cook the rice in. Cool the rice overnight in a pot so it turns into a resistant starch rice. When you’re ready to have it take out the amount you need to have and leave the rest in the fridge.
