Question about the calories of rice. The rice I cook measures by 1/4 cup uncooked for 150 calories and that this gives 3/4 cup cooked. I take 1/2 cup of uncooked rice and I get 1 cup of cooked rice. So by the uncooked measurements it is 300 calories and by the cooked it is 200. I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to go by cooked or uncooked measurements. Or why my rice turns out different
At a restaurant it's a whole different matter though....you have to guess everything, and usually it's based on the volume: a piece of meat the size of a pack of cards, a rice bowl that looks like about 1/2 a cup, an ice cream scoop that holds 1/4 cup, etc, etc.
Well that's depressing. Sneaky 100 calories. Thanks for the replies
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
