Introduce your family to wild rice and drop 18 calories per 1-cup (99-gram) serving. In addition to fewer calories, you'll get higher fiber and much better nutrition than you do with white rice. Because wild rice still has its fibrous outer layers, it holds up well in soups and casseroles. Plus, its varied grains and textures provide delightful flavors and chewing pleasure.
