I was shocked to say the least because I didn't expect it! If you love white rice and have an instant pot try it! You shouldn't be disappointed. I know I wasn't!

When I cook brown rice on the stovetop it is never sticky like the white sticky rice that I love so much! Tonight we cooked brown rice in our Instant Pot on the multigrain setting for 35 minutes instead of the standard 40 minutes - 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water - and it was sticky like the white rice and tasted so good!

|Seasoned ground Turkey and vegetables|
The picture above is a mixture of ground Turkey, bell peppers, onions, cilantro and lots of spices! The spices are turmeric, garlic, pepper, fajita seasoning, pepper, basil, and ginger. My husband has reactive hypoglycemia and I have high cholesterol so trying to balance the two can be difficult. He can eat any type of meat but I need low fat so we have to compromise now when eating at home.
|Bell Peppers ready to go!|
This bell pepper dish is actually an old classic that we both enjoy so happy to make it for the first night that we have to throw out all of our junk and medium to high sugar food, and buy no refined sugar, potatoes, and to my husband's detriment white rice dishes!
I studied everything I could on "Dr. Google" (as my physician would say), but next week we will be going in to see a dietician to answer all our questions to make sure we have it right.
This morning I went through our pantry and read every label on the jars, cans, and bags. It appears that most everything we have has tons of sugar (maybe not tons but he can't eat hardly any) in it and other things that we can't eat. I pulled out about 12 full bags and 6 Tupperware containers of food that we can no longer eat. I will be stopping by the local food bank with the unopened products for some people who can eat sugar with no problems.
Here is the dinner tonight and wish me luck to find something or anything my husband will like for tomorrow. I believe, unfortunately, or maybe, fortunately, I have a new calling!

I love the FridgeSmart products because when I buy cilantro and/or other herbs/vegetables they stay fresh longer and I don't end up throwing them out if I haven't used them within a week. The Freeze-It ® Plus containers are one of my favorite because I can put leftovers in the individual containers and they are easy to remove the food, and re-heat even if they are frozen. The Zest 'N Press gadget is easy to use for squeezing lemons, limes and small oranges as well as zesting with the same tool.
