Today’s tasty meal idea is brought to you by Minute® Ready to Serve Rice.

With the goals we have and choices we’ve made, Mike’s afternoon work schedule works for us. We have more time together in the earlier part of the day now that I’m working from home, but we do miss sharing most evening meals during the week. Of course Mike doesn’t go hungry but he doesn’t get a lot of gourmet meals for dinner, either! One of our solutions is Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. It’s great for a quick meal—his dinner break isn’t very long—and the Minute® Ready to Serve Rice is easily portable.

When you regularly brown bag it, you’ve got to be mindful of food choices because this isn’t an occasional thing, it is part of a life style. You don’t want to get in the habit of eating a lot of non-nutritious calories and junk food, although I don’t think that would be a big issue for Mike. He is a runner and he is very disciplined about his diet and exercise. He puts me to shame!

Mike can pop the Minute® Ready to Serve Rice cup into the cafeteria break room microwave (it only takes 60 seconds) and stir in whatever add-ins I send. A healthy Greek salad rice bowl is a terrific meal option: the warm rice is filling, it’s just the right portion, and the fresh veggies are a favorite with health-conscious Mike.
