I didn't want to believe it, but it seems to be true.
When I eat white rice, the next day I have pain in knee joints.
Ok, cut out the bread and now cut out the rice?!
I seriously need to change my staple.
Quinoa is an option. Millet is not so appealing to me. Brown rice is also an option.
Soaking quinoa and brown rice shouldn't be a drag. This is what people use to do in 'dem old days. Today, it seems like such a burden to think ahead to soak the grains to remove phytic acid. (which otherwise can carry away minerals like calcium)
I don't need to panic. I just need to keep it simple and let things flow.
This is the key.
I want to try 2 weeks of no white rice.
To increase herbal tea of Horsetail/(equisetum arvense), which contain silica. It's known to repair bony tissues and help form stronger bones and tendons. Eat more oatmeal and hunt around for some oat straw/avena sativa which is known to be calcium rich. Oatmeal and almonds make a powerful punch! Definitely incorporate more fish and more greens into my week's diet.
Bones love exercise. So, I'm going to make it my biz to walk more-during the hours before and after 11am- 2pm. Y'know gotta get some o' that vitamin D on my side!!
And then see how I feel...
The challenge is on...
There are lots more info on bone health!
