Meals Ready in a Minute

WOO! It’s Thursday which means that I only have today and tomorrow left of training I am wiped out from these classes (they make you really evaluate yourself and your core values) and then from also being mom and wife. For you working mamas I know this is old news but for me it was a reality check. It’s weeks like this though that I value having healthy, easy options that are ready to go in a minute for Em.
On normal weeks, I hit the gym in the morning, run errands, and get home with just enough time to feed Em lunch before it’s nap time. Some days I have less time than others and I have to have lunch ready in a flash. Nothing dictates HURRY like a hangry (yes, hungry … hungry + angry) toddler Enter Minute® Ready to Serve Rice.
I love these little cups! In just 60 seconds you can have brown rice ready to eat. While I prefer to cook brown rice the traditional way, it takes upwards of 50 minutes on the stove top. Sometimes 60 seconds is all I got so these are a staple in my pantry. Pull them out, take off the top, microwave, and voila! Brown rice in an instant.
For Em, I like to mix the brown rice with a protein, seasonings, and veggies. For this lunch I used low-sodium turkey, tomatoes, and spinach. I also love to add mushrooms, peas, kale, parsley, avocado, black beans, you name it! I just mix it all together, sauté it in olive oil, and it’s ready. Em gobbles it up which makes me a happy mom.
