Looking for a cereal alternative? Having brown rice for breakfast in this recipe is a delicious break from the norm that helps with weight loss, balances blood sugar, and provides long-lasting energy!
The rice is sweetened and softened with coconut extract and honey. Vitamin D and calcium are added from the fat-free milk. Finally, the raspberries add fiber for weightloss and tart for your taste buds.
Here is what you'll need:
1/4 cup instant brown rice
3/4 cup water
2 tbsp non fat dry milk
1 tsp honey
1/8 tsp coconut extract
1/2 fresh or thawed raspberries
1. Combine the rice and water in a microwavable bowl and stir together. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and make a small vent to release steam. Microwave on high for 5 minutes; then reduce to low for 3 minutes.
2. When finished, remove the plastic wrap and allow the rice to cool for 5 minutes. Stir in dry milk, honey, and coconut extract. Stir in the raspberries and serve.

The Nippy Niner is a nine mile (15K) paved, gravel and off-road trail run that begins on a gentle gravel road leading to the historic confluence point of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers and then returns on the undulating River's Edge Trail. The race starts on an open plane winding it's way through the wetlands and migratory bird habitats before entering the dense bottomland forest alongside the Missouri River and returning on gravel roads to the finish. Fast, Flat and extra Nippy.View More »
