But, good news, we're going to tell you something that's going to make you rather happy. According to Maria Marlowe, a nutritionist and author, of The Real Food Grocery Guide, there is one time that eating white rice is absolutely okay.

It keeps your blood sugar stable, and avoids you getting hungry an hour later, like many brown items tend to do.
