Rice is the perfect foundation for today’s healthier eating! Rice is economical, and easy to prepare. Rice goes well with other healthy foods such as vegetables, meat, and fish for a delicious and nutritious meal. Just one serving of nearly all Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain Rice varieties provide 100 percent of the daily whole grain recommendation.
Here is one of the many recipes that I prepared.
