I've been eating rice pretty much my whole life. One of my favorite dishes is chicken and rice with soy sauce. I've always eaten instant or minute rice. Once I started being more aware of what I was eating, I decided to start eating whole kernel rice.
Rice is not easy to make. I was never satisfied with how my rice turned out. You have to boil it for about 45 minutes and it always seemed to turn out mushy. I decided to get a rice cooker.
This basic recipe is quite tasty. I happened upon it partly by accident. I thought I was adding garlic powder to the pot. It turned out to be onion powder.
Add to pot:
1 part brown rice
2 1/2 parts liquid ( broth works well, but add a little water to compensate for the thickness of the broth)
1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
a good dash of salt
a good dash of onion powder
turn on the cooker and select brown rice
Rice is a staple in my meal prep because it's easy to make and I like eating it. You can make several servings at once and portion it out.
1. Turn power on
2. Add 1 part white rice
3. Add 2 parts water or other liquid
4. 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
6. Onion powder
7. Close lid
8. Press white rice button
9. Machine will beep when done
10. Stir and serve
If you don't have a workout program to follow or maybe you are looking for something new. I have developed a medium to fast paced program that is highly effective and adaptable to home or a gym. It is called 3 X 3 Matrix Training. There are three exercises in each matrix with three reps each and there are three rounds. Get it here.
I'm just an average 40 something guy with a family who wants to help people get fit and healthy. I have a bachelor's degree in Physical Education (UTEP 1991) and a Master's degree in Kinesiology (Sam Houston State University 1993) I became a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) in 1994 from the National Athletic Trainer's Association. I became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association in 1999. I have worked out (mostly) in some form or fashion since high school. I'm not super fit and I don't have a six-pack. I've don't Spartan and a few other obstacle races. I've done home fitness DVD's and worked out at gyms. I'm not a runner or a Crossfitter. I don't eat perfectly, but do understand it's importance. There are too many people who are not healthy and too many people who don't know how to enter the fitness world. There are too many personal trainers that are not qualified to work with people, especially beginners. There are too many false thoughts, gadgets, and expectations and I want to guide people down the right path so that they have success.
