Wild rice is a wonderful food for upset tummy, but not just because it is a type of rice. It actually alkalizes your body unlike other rice types and also may settle the stomach quickly. Wild rice also provides the body with nutrients like iron and potassium which are harder to obtain from nutritious starchy foods. Bland foods are often recommended for upset stomachs, for example rice and easy-to-digest starches. To keep your blood sugar stable, try wild rice with squash with a lmore fiber and other nutritional supplements rather than white bread and rice that have low nourishment. Yummy!
