How does rice milk help you lose weight?
As we already said, rice milk has almost no calories and has the ability to improve your digestion and metabolism, which will eventually result in weight loss. It’s best to drink a glass of rice milk early in the day as it can cleanse your body and boost your vitamin absorption. Rice milk contain a lot of calcium and vitamin D, which can prevent the accumulation of fat in your body and maintain your weight. However, when compared with cow’s milk, rice doesn’t have much proteins, so if you decide to consume rice milk for breakfast, it’s best to do so with a protein-rich food that can provide replacement for the lack of protein. Nuts are a great option.
Drinking the milk for breakfast is a great choice – it will dissolve the excess fat in your body and help eliminate it. Of course, it won’t work on its own – to really achieve results, you must drink the milk combined with a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise. Here’s a nice rice milk recipe that works great for breakfast:
- 8 cups water
- 1 cup brown or whole grain rice
- 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
- 4 tablespoons honey
Boil the water in a bigger pot, then add the cup of rice. Cook the mixture with a lid on the pot for about 15 minutes, then let it cool down. Next, mix the water and rice in a blender, then add the honey and sunflower seeds and blend again. Add a pinch of cinnamon in the end and enjoy this tasty and healthy breakfast meal.
Note: if you want to always have rice milk at hand, you can make a bigger amount and keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days.
