*Tips from the HeartMath Kitchen
1. Coral Jasmine Rice (Khao Deng variety) is an ancient red grain that has been polished using an innovated technique. The polished grains remain red at the tips and have a natural coral color in the middle. The advantage of this technique is that the grains retain all the riches and minerals of the whole grain rice but are light and easy to digest.[i]
2. Earth Balance is a vegan butter-like spread made with olive, soybean, canola and palm oils. It is available at most natural food stores.
