Paleo since 2013, keto since 2017. I love the challenge of creating healthy meals for my family and improving our long-term health through diet and a healthy lifestyle. In addition to spending my time in the kitchen, I love working on projects on our homestead in the foothills of Colorado, and tending to my garden and flock of chickens.
Can white rice be Paleo? What’s the first answer that pops into your head? No, of course not. When we describe the essence of what Paleolithic eating is we should automatically think avoid all grains, sugar, legumes, dairy, etc. But what is rice? Is rice a grain or a starch? Before I answer that let’s explore the history of rice, different types of rice, and why it may be able to fit into a Paleo diet.
