I'm a big fan of rice - I always have been. It's good for you and it's so versatile! It can go with any meal and you can mix it with all types of different flavors. Yum!
I literally like all types of rice - Wild Rice, Brown Rice, and this rice that I didn't even know existed: Whole Grain White Rice from Uncle Ben's. It's a great source of fiber, it has 45g Whole Grains per serving, it's low fat, cholesterol free, and there are no preservatives, artificial colors, or MSG. All of those items right there mean that this rice is my new favorite!
We all know how hard it is to get our kids to eat whole grains, and with the ever-prevalent array of processed foods out there that are no good for us, let alone our still-growing kids, it's getting even harder to find food that truly is good for us.
The rice comes in a variety of flavors from traditional Long Grain to Chicken, Broccoli Cheddar, Taco Style and Sweet Tomato. The best part? It cooks in 10 minutes!
I love this rice and so did my kids! I use fat-free chicken broth in place of water, and I add some salt and pepper for some taste, and the rice is tasty and still good for us! We love it and the kids didn't know it was good for them!
