Every day I feel like I am rushing to make lunch or honestly, a lot of times I forget… until after Blake’s nap, so there’s that, Mom win. So I have been trying to get somewhat of a routine going, you know one where we spend time together during lunch, make it a little thing we do together during the chaos of the day. Generally, we still don’t have a ton of time, so I look for quick easy meals that still give us like 10 minutes to have some Mama/baby time, but you know, enjoy our food.
A recent go to, is Minute® Ready to Serve Organics. We LOVE rice in our family, like love it. In fact, the word love might very well be an understatement. We eat it all the time because it’s just so easy to make and a great side dish with everything. Well, now they have these cute little cups that you just peel back the top, pop in the microwave for 60 seconds and there you have it, a good little lunch. I love to serve it with turkey for Blake and then a cheese or something. Usually I just eat it by itself and throw a little garlic salt on top, sometimes leftover chicken from the night before. It’s been the BEST, guys, because it literally takes 2 minutes to make it all, then Blake and I get a few minutes of “us” time before her nap and before I go dive back into work.
Favorite quick lunch recipe:
+Minute® Ready White Rice
- Cook rice as normal
- Add a dash of garlic powder, onion powder and salt
- Mix in 1/2 cup of broccoli
Minute is actually America’s leading rice company and gives us what we want as the consumer, products we love and five new Minute® Ready to Serve products: Minute Ready to Serve Organics White & Red Quinoa, and gluten-free Multi-Grain Medley. You know, the ones I just mentioned above. They’re honestly great for any time of the day, breakfast, lunch, dinner, whatever. You know us, rice all times of the day basically and there are tons of flavor options so you’ll never get bored.
You could even try throwing in broccoli or another veggie you love, that’s what I like to do for my own meals, then for Blake I generally give her something small on the side with her rice! All three Minute Ready to Serve Organics are certified by the USDA. A breakdown of flavors for you, goes like this:
- Organic Brown Rice has a subtle, nutty flavor and a chewy texture. It’s 100 percent whole grain, gluten free and a great source of fiber!
- Organic White Rice is a long grain white rice (and my fav), it’s also gluten free!
- Organic Red Quinoa & Brown Rice with Garlic is a yummy blend of organic red quinoa and organic brown rice combined with garlic and onion. It is 100 percent whole grain, gluten free and a great fiber source.
As you can tell, we are fans. I think what I love most about it though is it honestly gives me time to just sit down in the middle of the day and be a Mom. I miss that a lot of days, so it’s nice to make sure I give myself those 10-15 minutes every day to take for myself. It’s good for my heart and I think good for Blake because well, Mommin’ is my first and best job!
