@Pippinwhite -- I'm glad you brought that up about white rice and your blood sugar. Some doctors don't tell their diabetic patients about this kind of thing. They're still going on the old recommendations from the 1970s that basically held that diabetics needed to eat carbs to stabilize their sugar. Don't know how that got around, but it was a load of garbage.
Like you, I love rice, but I don't eat it. I did run across an interesting recipe for something called cauliflower "rice" that sounded interesting. I'll have to try it and will post here with the results.
