Product: Tasty Bite Garlic Brown Rice – $2.49+
As so many of you know, Tasty Bite is my go-to prefabbed food of choice when it comes to needing something quick and on-the-go. I mean, honestly. It doesn’t get much easier than a 90 second nuke in the microwave. The food tastes fresh…like it wasn’t pre-packaged or sold on the shelf of your local grocery store. All-natural…real ingredients help make this a healthy and better choice than other options out there.
Known for Indian and Asian cuisine (the Asian dishes are NOT gluten-free), these are little packets of amazingly flavorful food. They are affordable, don’t take up much space in the pantry, and so easy to prepare. If you haven’t jumped on the Tasty Bite train yet…what are you waiting for?
For those familiar with my blog, you might have read about the past few Tasty Bite meals being…rice. Simply price. I had one with lentils and one that was just plain brown rice. And they were fantastic. Still moist. Still seasoned perfectly. No need to add anything else. Just…sheer, tasty perfection.
The rice trend continues. This time with Tasty Bite Garlic Brown Rice. First of all, I’m a total fan of brown rice. I have been for ages. I actually prefer it to the ultra-refined white rice. I think the texture is better and I love that light, nutty flavor that comes with it. Mmmm. But Tasty Bite, this time, stepped it up. They gave it an extra flavor boost with garlic.
And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE garlic!
So…brown rice…garlic…how can you go wrong? You can’t. Tasty Bite seasoned and flavored this rice with the perfect balance of spices and added vegetables. It made for one interesting and flavorful bite after another. Seriously. I served this with some sauteed baby bok choy. I’m not joking. As I sauteed it up with some garlic…it was a nice match. But I kept them separate on the plate because I wanted to enjoy my rice on its own if I chose. And a few bites…that is exactly what I did. The rice is amazing. It microwaves to perfection…still soft…still moist and fluffy. The flavors melt right into each grain and make it one of the best rices that are pre-made. Seriously.
And look at these ingredients: water, brown rice, carrots, corn, spinach, sunflower oil, garlic, salt, celery, sugar, cumin, chilies. Real ingredients. Recognizable ingredients. What more could you ask for?
Nutritionally speaking…we’re talking good numbers here. A serving is half of the pouch. In this serving, you will be consuming 220 calories and 5 grams of fat. That’s amazing. And you do get a lot of rice in that serving. You will also be treated to a cholesterol-free meal that contains only 420 mg sodium and 1 gram of sugar. Finally, you will be provided with a filling 2 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein.
Healthy. Packed with flavor. Fluffy. Light. Delicious.
If you have yet to try any of the Tasty Bite meals…I encourage you to do so. And if you aren’t brave enough to go for Indian cuisine, give the rice a try. The Garlic Brown Rice is amazing. So if garlic is your thing…it won’t overpower, but it will add plenty of flavor to the rice. Enjoy!
