Eating Healthy is Tasty! #SeedsOfChangeCA added to any meal is Yummy! @SheSpeaksUp

As part of my healthy choices journey I am adding more grains to my diet. I look for foods that are high in fibre and when possible organic. It is important for me to know where my food comes from and what exactly is in it. Making healthy choices is easier than I imagined and really just takes a few minutes a day. Being that it is summer I am grilling meals more often and enjoying the added flavour this adds to our food. Recently I was sent a few packs of Seeds of Change Quinoa & Brown Rice with Garlic and Seeds of Change Spanish Style rice to try.

Seeds of Change® is a certified organic rice and ancient grain brand that you can heat up in the microwave or on the stovetop in just minutes.

  • The quality of food we put in our bodies is important to us, but no matter how dedicated we are to finding organic foods, many of us are strapped for time.
  • Seeds of Change offers the trust of an organic product, combined with the ease of simple-to-prepare instructions.
  • Seeds of Change is the only Certified Organic, ready-to-heat rice and grain brand available in Canada.

Luckily rice is one food my entire family enjoys eating with no fuss.

The first night we had boneless skinless chicken breast for dinner with a tossed spinach salad and Seeds of Change Spanish Style rice. I waited for everything to be done and then started on the rice. Cooking it was super fast and easy. Rip off the top of the pack and toss in the microwave for 90 seconds.

For this meal I made the rice a side dish allowing the family to take as little or as much as they wanted. The rice was full of flavour and a great texture. It was just moist enough and full of corn, and peppers.

The next night we again had BBQ and I was having salmon. I did up a foil pack with my salmon, diced onions and some of the Spanish Rice. I cooked it for about 20 minutes allowing the grill to steam the foil pack. Once I removed it from the heat it was done. The salmon was flaky and the rices flavours added to the meal. It was amazing!

I plan on making a salad this week with the Seeds of Change Quinoa & Brown Rice with Garlic. I will share it on Instagram when I do, so watch for it!
