Brown rice is a staple of a healthy diet. This rice can be cooked in a rice cooker as well.



  1. In a small pot with a lid add the uncooked rice, water, olive oil, sea salt, thyme, onion powder, and bay leaf. Cover and bring to a simmer for 25–30 minutes over medium heat. Once the rice is tender remove from heat and remove the bay leaf.

      Hi DJ, thank you for your comment. We are not sure what you are asking. It is always important for everybody to eat protein and have a balanced diet.

      Wishing you health,

    The glycemic index on brown rice is above 50, which will cause insulin spikes. Is Dr Hyman not concerned about that ???

    Thanks Bill

    HI Bill, I’m not really educated in the glycemic index, but I’m wondering if the amount of fiber in the brown rice has something to do with it?
