Rice is a versatile food that can be the main component in dishes like casseroles and stir fries, or a light side dish served with any meat or vegetable main. It's also super cheap and can last indefinitely in your pantry when stored in a tightly sealed container. When choosing between brown or white rice, consider the nutritional breakdown between the two. Brown rice is a whole grain and therefore more nutritious than white rice. That's because during milling of white rice, the rice's husk, bran and germ are removed. That does mean white has a longer shelf life, but it also removes much of its fiber, vitamins and minerals. So you're better off sticking to brown.
