Quick and Easy Meal Prep with Spanish Rice From #SeedsOfChangeCA

Friday, July 29, 2016 AnnMarie Brown 0 Comments

We love to spend our summer days poolside with friends or taking in some local festivals on the weekends. Coming home to an easy to prepare meals is essential to making our adventures even more fun since I am not having to worry about what is for dinner when we walk in the door. 

The schedule in our house is quite busy this summer with so many different things to attend every week,  when Seeds of Change asked me to try out their new Organic microwaveable rice dishes I knew I just had to try them to see if they would be a hit at our house.

I am not a regular purchaser of convenience food and that being said the ingredients in Seeds of Change won me over very easily. The ingredients are organic and there are no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The convenience part is that it only takes 90 minutes in the microwave to have a delicious side dish to go with your meal.

I complimented our Chicken Thighs with the Seeds of Change Organic Spanish Rice Wholegrain rice with quinoa, red bell peppers and corn and some frozen mixed vegetables. In less than 20 minutes I had dinner on the table!
