    I always have plain rice with fish, so I tried the lemon pepper rice and it was great! I'm going to try the peas and cheese one as well.

    Rice is carb heavy - why is it in this category - 1/3/10

    If you'd care to read above it is for brown rice which is a good carb with fibre etc. Removing all complex carbs from your diet is NOT healthy!!!
