Scientists now say that five portions of fruits & vegetables a day is no longer enough, and that we need seven and mostly of vegetables. Oh and you can forget the frozen variety; they don’t count.

Alarmingly for some who thought they were doing the right thing, tinned and frozen fruit may not be helpful at all. …There was a surprise finding – people who ate canned or frozen fruit actually had a higher risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.”

Rice is a great canvas for sauteed, streamed, grilled or roasted veggies. It’s also a good addition to lentil or veggie soups that need some extra substance. But if adding a bit of bouillon and spices to a pot of rice doesn’t make your dish more exciting, there are a couple of other grains you should consider as alternatives to boring old rice. 

Perhaps the most obvious is quinoa. But give these less common grains a shot for starters:

  • Wheatberries
  • Bulgur
  • Farro
  • Kamut
  • Barley
  • Kasha (buckwheat groats)
  • Millet
  • Amaranth
  • Spelt

Most of them are available in the bulk section of stores like Whole Foods, and natural and organic grocery stores. You can also find a solid selection from Bob’s Red Mill

And of course, you can always experiment with different types of rice if you’re not quite ready to try the more exotic grains yet.
