Brown rice

Things i've discovered about this food:

1. it has less weevils
2. it requires less washing
3. it needs to be soaked for at least 20 minutes prior to cooking
4. there's this "pop pop" crackle sound while it is soaking in water
5. it smells like cereal when cooked
6. it takes a longer time to cook (as opposed to white rice)
7. if cooked with inadequate water, it can be a chore to to eat it
8. when soaked in soup/gravy, the grains become puffy
9. when spoiled/fermented, the aroma is sweeter than white rice (subjected to the same processes)
10. eating in long term causes alteration in shitting habits/patterns
11. we need to cook 2 and 1/2 cups to feed the whole family (compared to the usual 2 cups of white rice)
12. my dog seem to finish all his rice more often (but then it could also be due to the meat dishes served lately)
