Butter has health benefits. For the type of cuisine you are doing, I think butter and/or ghee is much nicer, however like all things, moderation is the key.

Perhaps you could tweak a little, as in a little less rice and some more vege and protein and healthy fats. Nuts and seeds are also a good source of protein and healthy fats.

I don't often eat rice, but when I do I often have rice and buckwheat, or rice and chia seeds.

Thank you Kris, I entered all details now in SP tracker, and was able to get a realistic calculation. Looks like although I am mostly within my calorie range, I am more on the carbs and less on fat and way less in protein. I need to change my diet somewhat.

I came across one that has cup measures as well as grams. it is
Rice, white, short-grain, cooked, unenriched.

How many people are you cooking for? I tend to use the dry weight in grams, and have entered the nutritional information from the package.

Thank you ! I meant lightly packed. I can weigh the cooked rice. But SP measurement talks of cups.

A lot would depend on how you packed it because re the number of calories that you consumed. If you packed it down firmly, you would have consumed a lot more calories than if it was lightly packed.

Rice is one of the many foods that is best weighed. You ate approx. 2 1/4 cups of rice. As a general rule, 16.66 tablespoons equates to a 240 ml cup, but it is more accurate with liquid measures because you can't pack it down or pack it loosely.

I would suggest that if you haven't got scales, that you purchase a set that weighs in grams (or grams and ounces) and has a tare weight function and weigh all of your food as much as possible.

Take care,
Kris

Hi frnds ! I am having a difficulty in filing in my daily calorie intake on SP. I eat 36 tablespoons of cooked rice. How many cups should I enter ?
