    Is wild rice black rice? Because it is black... lol.

    They stock wild rice at the supermarket... just in tiny little packets... they're in a cardboard box (which I think has a plastic bag inside it). I think the packaging is a yellow/orange colour.

    I prefer basmatti rice when it comes to a stir-fry or as a side dish.

    But I love brown rice salads.

    Brown rice here. More fibre, it also has more magnesium which I need in my diet or else I get shocking migraines.

    Whatever I can get cheap. Also depends on the recipe. White for stir-fry or fried rice, arborio for risotto, brown for salad.

    Funny you mention this. DS has been having bad growing pains and the pharmacist gave me a list of foods that had a lot of magnesium in it. That was another reason why I got brown rice.

    Unfortunately we dont live in a large city, so no fancy shops here. There was once a special Chinese shop in town a few years back, but it closed. I assume there was no market for it here.
    We do have a handful of healthstores though. So will go have a look for black rice there when DS is in daycare on Friday.

    Now to think of a recipe to cook with black rice......

    We very rarely eat rice, but when we do it's either basmati or arborio.
    I haven't had brown rice for so long. Since I was a small child. I didn't like it then but chances are I would now. Maybe I'll give it a go.
    I also like wild rice, you know the black rice? So good.

    White rice here. We have brown rice and like it but the next day I have the worst stomach pains and diarrhea (tmi sorry) if I eat brown rice.

    We eat rice every day, mostly white jasmine rice which costs $2 a kilo. Sometimes i buy black sticky rice or red rice for a change but they are quite expensive. Where do you buy brown rice or basmati at good price?
