I remember my mom cooking brown or mixed grain rice before I left Korea. But my dad and brother prefer white rice, so I think she might have stopped cooking them. I may have her get some brown or mixed grain ones while I'm there so I don't eat that much white rice, at least while eating at home.
Also, you are right, gastronome. Korean dish does have a lot of veggies... Bi bim bap is one of my fav Korean dish, but it actually has about 500-600 cal...but I think if the amount of rice was less, it would go way down.
I still got 5 months left and feel like I'm leaving tomorrow. heh =)
Thanks for all the advice!!
