Did you know?
Scientists in Sri Lanka have figured out that cooking rice with oil, then cooling it, may slash calories by up to half. The cooling process, along with fat from the oil, boosts rice's resistant starch, an indigestible carb.
Try it at home: Add 1 teaspoon healthy oil to the cooking water for every 1/2-cup uncooked rice. Cook, chill overnight, and you have rice that tastes just like rice but has fewer storable calories!
