1) How would broccoli rice be a better alternative than normal rice?
When you compare broccoli rice which is made from vegetables with normal rice, it is quite clear that the latter would be much higher in calories. Broccoli rice generally has fewer calories and is low in carbohydrates in comparison with white or brown rice. Our Malaysian daily meals tend to be rich in carbohydrates, causing your blood sugar levels to rise as well as your sugar intake.
If you want to maintain a healthy, balanced nutritional intake, it is better to substitute part of your diet with lower calories but high in nutrients. Bear in mind, white or brown rice isn’t considered unhealthy, they just contain fewer nutrients and are high in calories.
2) What are the benefits of consuming broccoli rice?
Broccoli rice offers nutritional values known to boost brain health, such as lutein and beta carotene, which comes from vitamin A. Broccoli rice tends to have higher calcium, vitamins and minerals compared to normal rice. Since broccoli, in general, has higher antioxidants, it could also help prevent cancer.
3) Who is suitable to consume broccoli rice?
If you are diabetic or must watch your daily sugar intake, substituting your regular rice with broccoli rice would be ideal. Apart from that, those going on specific diets that require low carbohydrates such as Atkins or keto could benefit from broccoli rice.
