 Love it, Like it, Hate it:

Rice (and Rice Alternatives) 
White rice is such staple in our everyday cooking, serving as the foundation for dishes like red beans and rice, jambalaya, and shrimp creole. But white rice gives us very little nutritional benefit, and packs 200 calories and 45 carbs into every cup. And then there’s brown rice, black rice, even red rice – but are these really any better? In today’s Love it, Like it, Hate it, we’re Getting the Skinny with Molly on her top picks and worst bets for this southern favorite.

 Get the Skinny on Rice Alternatives 
Rice swaps are more and more common, with recipes for cauliflower rice popping up everywhere, and restaurants serving rice-free versions of traditional favorites, like quinoa “risotto” and farro jambalaya. But are these healthy-sounding rice alternatives really any better for us? We’re Getting the Skinny with Molly on the nutritional rundown of each, and if it’s worth the swap or not!
