Brown Rice compared to White Rice has a lot of health benefits. Brown Rice is full of Thiamine, Niacin, Pyridoxine, Vitamin K, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, and Potassium. Brown Rice is rich in fiber, controls blood sugar and cholesterol, and works wonders for ulcers and diarrhea. Plus if you are debilitated it’s very easy to digest and contains needed nutrients for your bones, muscles, nails, hair, and teeth. Soak your Brown Rice in water for 30 minutes prior to cooking and it will cook faster.

Tomatoes are full of vitamins including vitamins A, B, C and E. Vitamins A and C are powerful antioxidants that help to stave off cancer and also get rid of free radicals thus slowing the aging process. And Vitamin E is great for nervous system health and for preventing diabetes, helping with cardiovascular health. And B vitamins for health and vitality… and the riboflavin in tomatoes has been shown to help prevent migraines.

In general nuts are full of great Omega 3 fatty acids that help prevent cancer and heart attacks. They also contain lots of plant sterols that lower cholesterol, and they contains lots of great unsaturated fats that again help lower cholesterol. At the same time they contain amazing amounts of arginine which is important for preventing diabetes. Nuts help prevent heart attacks by preventing plaque build up in arteries because of Vitamin E. And they also have lots of great fiber for promoting probiotic bacteria in your gut... thus boosting your immune system. Nuts also contain zinc for immune support, magnesium for preventing and reversing osteoporosis, B vitamins for mood enhancement, selenium for preventing shingles , and many more trace minerals... and a good amount of protein too!
