    brown parboiled rice is great. Just be careful because a little rice is a lot of carbs. I think a cup (cooked) is close to 40 grams.

    I think I recall seeing that 'wild rice' has a rather high GI.

    thought this may be of interest to you all.

    "Texmati Brown Basmati Rice
    This aromatic rice is sometimes called "Popcorn Rice." It does smell like popcorn when you cook it in a pot. It smells more "nutty" when steamed. It is said to have the lowest GI of any rice. Remember that rice, even legal rice, should not be a central component of the meal, just a side dish. All rice is in the moderate to high range. Instant rice of any kind is NEVER legal.

    Although brown rice and basmati rice are both legal also, this is the rice with the lowest GI and, in my humble opinion, the best flavor! Follow the simple instructions on the container for best results or experiment until you make it work in your favorite rice steamer."

    of course this is coming from the sugar busters list, but still something i thought i'd share.

    Soaking your brown rice for 22 hours improves the nutrient profile. In particular, lysine content will increase by a factor of 3. This makes it a better source of protein. It also gets sweeter and cooking time is halved or even cut down to 1/3.

    If you get adventurous, and it's not a bad idea to be so, since variety is crucial in a good diet, you could also try sprouting your always whole grains. You could try sprouting rye, oat groats, quinoa, wild rice (really a seed) and buckwheat. Soak for 24 hours, then rinse and drain every 2-3 hours. You will be very gratified to see that little green shoot popping out!

    The next step, of course, is to sprout your dried beans which have similar benefits on sprouting. Although some sources state that they can be eaten raw, it's probably a good idea to cook them after they sprout. Lentils are easiest. They are also dirt cheap, so it won't cost you much to experiment.
