They Say Rice Is Bad For You….

They Say Rice Is Bad For You….

Cooked Rice and Curry Food Served on White Plate

(Most people avoid rice because it’s considered a bad carbohydrate that makes you put on weight – is that true?)

Most carbohydrates such as rice, wheat, and other cereal such as corn and millets contain a similar amount of carbohydrates and calories when compared by weight. Why, then, is rice regarded as bad for health when you are on a diet?

Most rice growing countries depend on rice as their principal source of carbohydrates. Thailand, China, the Indian subcontinent, many regions of Europe and the Americas grown and eat rice. The truth is many countries south east and Far East Asia begin their morning with rice. Even traditional British households might include kedgeree within their breakfast menu.

The rice could be long grained, short-grained, round rice or gelatinous rice, based on the country’s climate and so influences their regional dietary preferences. In Italy, for instance, the risotto is made of Arborio rice, which requires a great deal of cooking and when done has a sticky texture.

However, the white rice which is used for cooking was stripped of a lot of its nutritional value, leaving just carbohydrates behind. It goes through a laborious processing process including dehusking and polishing.

As a refined food, rice is not good for health. Too much of refined foods result in an overload of simple carbohydrates that are not good for digestion.

Since rice is difficult to portion, you can easily wind up eating far more than you planned. It is hard to estimate how much you would normally eat, unlike state bread or chapattis.

As rice is readily digested, you may eat what you think is a sufficient quantity and feel hungry shortly after. Then you will eat more food, thus increasing your calorie count.

How to eat rice the proper way

Avoid eating refined and polished rice. If you eat brown rice, it is far better for health because it ha more nutrient value and more fiber.

Have steamed or boiled rice, whose water hasn’t been discarded, instead of rice that’s heavy in fats. You can also scatter your rice with plenty of vegetables that not only add colour but also Satellite Beach Bat Removal. Colored vegetables are a good source of phytonutrients and antioxidants. You can also add white shredded meat to your rice to create an entire meal.

Rice is also easier to digest and is one of the first foods given to infants. It may also be cooked in a variety of ways since it has a relatively neutral flavor and is a major source of carbohydrates. Cultures world-wide cook and eat various kinds of rice and in several nations and regions it’s a staple food.

So rice is not really bad for you when you’re on a diet as long as you don’t over-indulge and exercise portion control.

Extra Magic Hours?

Extra Magic Hours?

Well, I’m at it again! Today we are going to go through Disney World’s Extra Magic Hours. From that they apply to, to the way I plan to use mine, it’s time for a little magic!

As you may be aware, Extra Magic Hours are additional hours those Disney guests staying on hotel have the ability to maintain the park. These additional hours are exclusive to resort guests, so that is going to mean less time waiting to be on your favourite rides. Ordinarily, these hours will either take place before the park officially opens or after it closes. Usually, one park will have Extra Magic Hours per day. You may wish to look at the calendar on the MyDisneyExperience program and plan your days at the parks so (I think it will show up to 180 days in advance).

What’s the best bang for your buck when it comes to Extra Magic Hours?

Magic Kingdom:

Seven Dwarves Mine Train will be among the big players when it comes to using your Extra Magic Hours. This ride regularly has lines which are 2+ hours. I don’t know about you, but perspiration to “heigh ho, heigh ho” is not actually on my bucket list (and even if it was, I did it with a very grumpy husband! Grumpy Dwarf even, heh heh heh.) . They have an interactive line for the kiddies.

Another ride worth utilising this extra time for is Space Mountain. This ride is as popular if not more so than Seven Dwarves… especially since it is part of the ‘mountain’ trio – Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Honestly, the popularity of this ride is beyond me. I felt like I’d be decapitated the whole horror-filled minutes I spent there, and I’ve made up my mind never to go on again! But, I digress.

Lastly, Satellite Beach Rat Removal is another ride with mad wait times! It is only about two minutes in duration, but is obviously a Disney fan favourite.

I also plan to go on The Haunted Mansion until I become the 1000th happy haunt or throw up, whichever comes first. This ride doesn’t have a lot of wait time, but it’s my all-time favourite.


Ever since Frozen Ever After came out, it has been a hit with multiple hour wait times. But your Norwegian School Bread ain’t gonna continue that long. Speaking of, wait for a review of some of the food at the World – I intend to give some updates and thoughts on my trip!

Other popular options are Test Track and Soarin’. Designing cars and going on a trip around the world. Can not go wrong with that. These are especially helpful in hitting up during Extra Magic Hours due to the tiered system of Fastpass+ where certain rides at the same tiered class cannot have more than one Fasspass+ reserved for that particular tier at any given time (this will be explained in detail when I talk Fastpass+).

Animal Kingdom:

Ever since the opening of Pandora, the Avatar section of the park, it’s been a problem to get on to either of the rides it provides: Na’vi River Journey and Avatar Flight of Passage. Both of these rides offer multiple hour wait times, with Avatar Flight of Passage being the slightly more popular of the two.

My advice: go immediately to whichever one you did not get a Fastpass+ for (more on getting hard-to-get Fastpasses+ forthcoming). That is the only way to guarantee riding both rides at least once during your journey.

Hollywood Studios:

For this park, my advice is to try and hit up Toy Story Mania and Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Once Toy Story Land opens on June 30, 2018, you will want to be heading for Alien Swirling Saucers and Slinky Dog Dash. If past history is to be trusted, those rides will remain a hot commodity for a few years to come.

These strategies are just my 2 cents, but I plan to use them for my upcoming trip. Personally, I hate waiting in line so I plan to optimise my time! At any rate, your trip will be private to what you love best, so use those Disney Extra Magic Hours to bring the most joy to you and yours!
