Back to school season is in full swing in my household. While it is nice to be back on a regular schedule, I’m struggling with finding time to make my own lunch on a daily basis. Between soccer practices, football games, back to school meetings, and more, it is a struggle to find the energy in the evenings to pack my lunch for work the next day. I’m not a morning person so it’s best if I plan ahead the night before. Thanks to Minute® Ready to Serve Rice for sponsoring this post, so I can share ideas on how to quickly and easily create a flavorful lunch.
I try to pack my lunch the night before. This makes my mornings run a bit smoother. I’m not a morning person so anything I can do the night before is always appreciated as it slow moving for the first couple of hours after waking. Often, I get busy at work and don’t have time to leave the office to go and grab something healthy if I forget to pack a lunch. If I do have time to leave a get a lunch, it will probably be something quick and most likely unhealthy. This is where Minute® Ready to Serve Rice has been a great item to have on hand for quick and easy lunches. I can even keep a couple of the Minute® Ready to Serve Rice packages such as the black beans & rice variety in my desk in case I completely forget my lunch. This way I can enjoy a satisfying lunch with very little effort.
Do you have problems determining what a single serving of rice is? I know I do! I love that these Minute® Ready to Serve Rice make it easy to portion control since they come conveniently packaged in two individual single-serve cups. This takes the guess work out of tracking and planning.
The Minute® Ready to Serve Rice Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of six 100% whole grains including brown rice, wheat, quinoa, rye, oats, and barley. I decided to pair it with a serving of black beans, my favorite canned diced tomatoes with green chilies in lime juice, and shredded cheese. Cook the rice per package instructions, which is just 60 seconds in the microwave. No need to add water or anything to the package. Mix together your add-ins and enjoy!
