I'm on a sticky rice hiatus at the moment, but I DO have two 5lb bags in my cupboard!
I LOVE sticky rice - so much I even wrote a poem to/about it after the first time I made
it at home.....
Anyway, it does have less carbs than regular white rice (not much less, but less nonetheless, ha!),
and I never seemed to "feel" any kind of carb "rush" from it either.
The best part is that it's SO DARN CHEWY and delicious, it takes awhile to eat it, so it really
feels like you're actually EATING something, unlike regular rice which just kind of evaporates
(for the most part, yanno, you could chew that shit with your tongue for crying out loud) in your
mouth along with other food.
Sticky rice is a MEAL.
I remember when my cousin got back from Thailand and then took me to a Thai restaurant to introduce
me to my beloved sticky rice - not only was I, well, in love, but I was farking FULL for the rest off the
day, and we ate at 12pm!
Anyway, so yes, eat it!
I'd skip eating it with fruit or any other way these days, but that's just me.
Sticky rice and my chicken, ginger/basil/cilantro stir fry is to die for.
Could eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner.
