Anyone else think rice eaters are just delusional sugar addicts?
I went to the Elephant Bar the other day and had white rice for the first time in almost a year of going Paleo and it was interesting. Half-way through eating the rice I found that for the first time in almost a year I was craving desert and wine. I don't think it works for me if my reaction is to instantly want more sugar.
I think it could be ok for some people, don't know. I eat 1 or two sweet potatoes each day and I don't get the cravings from them.
I stop at the Elephant Bar on occasion as it is convenient to an area I'm sometimes in...

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Out of respect for this thread, I had fried rice last night. 'Twas tasty.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

Beside most of the people being complete food snobs it can be an entertaining forum. I especially love reading the threads how people have become tortured souls eating primal and are in complete misery.
If you ever decide to make it don't use the pre-packaged spice packets for it. Find a recipe that doesn't use those... and believe me there are a ton of recipes out there!
I will definitely try that out, thanks jojo. When I was pregnant with my oldest, a woman I worked with had her mom make Cambodian fried rice for me at least twice a week and OMG, it was amazing. The best I've ever had.
Nasi Goreng is one of my favourite dishes. I like the concept of street food and adore south-east asian cuisine.
I eat white rice nearly every day. I have many addictions but this is not one of them. It's a practicality.
