I am very surprised to see Jeff purchasing processed 'quick boil' brown rice!
What ever happened to cooking your brown rice the old fashioned way...then freezing it (for ready made meals) and then boiling it?
I used Success boil-n-bag rice many years ago before I knew any better...these days I wouldn't get within 500 feet of it!
I'm just a little confused as to why Jeff uses processed SUCCESS 'boil-in-bag' brown rice?
That's really no different than using Uncle Ben's or some other denatured boxed rice.
Unless I am totally missing the proverbial boat...I would like to know the reason for this choice as opposed to cooking brown rice the old fashioned way?
Looking forward to your response.
I really appreciate the recent posting by Henry.
I leaped into the Vegan lifestyle with both feet last December due to a high BP condition. I made a firm commitment to "reverse" this malady and transition into a lifetsyle where health and wellness is priority #1.
During this period, I had an opportunity to meet with a highly regarded Vegan M.D. in Northern California, who recommended that I lose weight and continue eating a plant-based diet.
I immediately eliminated poultry, sea food, fish, oils, avocados, eggs, dairy, SALT, fruit juices, white flour products and processed foods.
The weight began to melt off of my small frame and in less than 6 months I was down 25 lbs! In addition to the extreme weight loss (too much I'm told), I experienced low energy levels and felt absolutely miserable! I eventually reintroduced avocados, nuts and olive oil back into my diet.
I enjoy cooking, so I have been diligent about healthy and consistent food preparation. I also include 'green smoothies' and tons of veggies and fruits.
However, I am still struggling with high BP in spite of diet, exercise and sufficient rest.
I too have read Esslystn, McDougall and Campbell's "The China Study", but such powerful health breakthroughs can begin to overwhelm with so many varying expert opinions and theories.
My question is directed to Henry and those forum participants who have found total success utilizing a plant-based lifestyle to TRANSFORM their health and overall physical well being...especially those of you who have overcome health maladies such as Diabestes 2, Hypertension and so forth.
I still have not been able to give up my BP medication (i.e. Amlodipine-2.5 mg.)
It's been a frustrating journey and so far, I have simply not experienced any positive changes in the way I feel and especially with regard to my BP.
If anyone out there can offer advice and/or suggestions that can/will help me turn this around, I would be extremely grateful.
If Jeff is available to respond, that would be awesome.

If you think there is any concerns, you can remove the rice from the bag and just cook it in water for 10 minutes and then drain.
Most of people won't do it, since it's faster to boil it in a plastic bag, but I always cook it like JNovickRD described
I think his ways are extremely beneficial for people who are concerned about keeping their health in a good state all year long. We should always read the nutrition table.
CNN had a story about this.
