For dinner later today I’m going to prepare Village Harvest Brown Jasmine Rice. First time I’ll be preparing or ever having Jasmine Rice. Here’s a little background on it.

Village Harvest Brown Jasmine RiceVillage Harvest Brown Jasmine Rice

Keeping the bran intact and removing only the hull (the outermost layer of grain), brown rice maintains beneficial nutrients lost with further processing, which means more health benefits with every delicious bite. Grown in the heart of Thailand, Village Harvest’s Brown Jasmine Rice has the slightly sweet flavor of traditional jasmine and the benefits of brown rice in every kernel. These soft, moist, long grains are ideal for a variety of cuisines, but essential for preparing authentic Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese dishes.



1 Cup Village Harvest Organic Brown Jasmine Rice, rinsed in cold water
2 1/2 Cups Water or Broth
In a quart pan, combine rice with 2 1/2 cups of water or stock and bring to a boil.

Cover tightly and simmer at low heat for 35 minutes.
Remove from heat. Fluff with fork. Makes about 3 cups of cooked rice.
Number of servings (yield): 4

Green tea is very special – Jamaica Gleaner Online

Green tea is very special

Jamaica Gleaner Online

A TEA lover, Bernard-Paul Heroux, once wrote: “There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea.”

Today, medical research clearly highlights the special health benefits of a specific tea – green tea, a drink made from the leaves of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). The same plant produces green tea, black tea, and oolong tea, but because of the way it is processed, green tea is truly unique.

Tea is the most consumed beverage in the world besides water and has been used by man for millennia. Much of its benefits have been attributed to potent antioxidants found in the tea leaves called polyphenols. These substances are also found in smaller amounts in other plant foods like cocoa.

Recently, however, researchers have identified another substance that is found only in the tea plant. It is a special amino acid called theanine that accounts for the ability of tea to create relaxation while energising the drinker. Theanine is the predominant amino acid in green tea leaves and gives tea its characteristic taste while contributing to many of its other medicinal benefits.
