There are different types of rice. White rice is strongly acidogenic and has a high glycemic index, so it’s definitely best to avoid it in the case of a Candid overgrowth.
Brown (whole grain) rice contains decidedly more nutrients, is only moderately acidogenic and has a lower glycemic index – this makes it much, much healthier.
Red rice has additional properties. It’s recommended for people with cardiac diseases and those with digestive issues.
Black rice, however, is a total superfood – it contains lots of antioxidants, 18 aminoacids and a large variety of vitamins and elements.
Risotto can be prepared with any variety of healthy rice.
Ingredients for 3 people:
– 1 cup (uncooked) rice
– 1 cup green peas (can be frozen)
– 2 tablespoons of clear butter (ghee)
– himalayan salt, pepper, chili, dried garlic
– a package of frozen shrimp
1. Pour 2 1/2 cups of water into a pot, add salt and dried garlic, then bring to a boil.
2. Add the peas to the boiling water.
3. After 3 minutes, add the shrimp (which you should previously rinse with hot water) and cook them with the peas for the next 5 minutes.
4. Strain the peas and shrimp and set them aside.
5. Rinse the rice and add it to the boiling broth and cook until soft according to the instructions on the package.
6. Cut the leek into small pieces and stew in a tablespoon of butter spiced with salt, pepper and chili.
7. When the rice is done, it’s good to let it soak the rest of the broth up for a few extra minutes. Then add a tablespoon of butter, the leek, peas and shrimp and mix.
8. Serve right away with dried kale sprinkled on top.
This risotto requires supplementing B complex vitamins (100%RDA) or vitamin B6 (25mg).
You can create many variations of this dish – instead of shrimp, you could use chicken or turkey, or add spinach (stewed in coconut milk and spiced with dried garlic, chili, salt and pepper) or ground asparagus stewed in butter, or dried tomatoes. Those who don’t react strongly to food can add in a bit of parmesan.
