I love rice, white rice. what's the effective way to cut it?
The traditional rice based Japanese diet ranks alongside the Mediterranean diet in terms of health benefits. The only area where it can be faulted is the high sodium content which is a major cause of stomach cancer and stroke amongst elderly Japanese. So if you were looking to cut down on anything to improve your diet you should start with soy sauce, miso and pickled vegetables, not rice.
