I don't think whole milk is saying anything is necessarily wrong with boiled rice :) possibly just questioning whether or not it would be okay to snack on unboiled brown rice, since it takes SOO long to cook in the first place.

I think I phrased that wrong, I meant to ask what is the logic behind eating raw foods. Makes sense to me for veggies but for grains I do not understand. Thanks!

Doing that sounds a little scary to me. Of course, my family seems to have trouble digesting grains in general. I just worry that it would be a bit of an "overdose" on grain. Just MO.

Understandable; I, however, am a grain fanatic! ;)

Soaking the rice grains in water first, may soften them and will be easier to chew. I too eat rolled oats for my breakfast raw, they are more pleasent to it without cooking.

I have found this awesome five grain hot cereal that I LOVE raw. I tend to cook it in the morning to make it hot but cook it for a mere fraction of the time to keep the texture intact.
