Congee Basics

Congee is another name for rice soup or rice porridge. It’s made by cooking rice in a large amount of water for a long time so that the grains lose their structure, soften and distribute their starch throughout the mixture. Congee may be sweet or savory and can contain ingredients as basic as rice and water or as complex as spices, marinated meat, nuts, fresh herbs and other garnishes. The ingredients in a particular type of congee are really what make up its nutrition facts; rich ingredients equal a high-calorie and high-fat bowl of porridge, but keeping the dish simple also keeps the calorie and fat counts low.

有的人喜欢吃高热量的早餐,午餐和晚餐则为低热量或省略不吃;而有的人早餐只是简单凑合,午餐和晚餐却相当丰盛、热量高。这两种人一天摄入的热量虽然可能相同,但脂肪氧化的情况却不同。早餐吃高热量食品的人,再配合低热量的午、晚餐,脂肪不容易囤积。而早餐不吃或吃得太简单的人,根本无法为白天的活动提供足够的热量和营养,等到午、晚餐的时间,脂肪消耗的能力变差,却又吃进高热量的食物,结果,吃进的热量比消耗的热量多,当然容易变胖Read more…
