I was asked to participate in a Blog Tour for Uncle Ben's and there is no way I'd pass up the opportunity for rice! Especially a new type of rice. What's that? New rice? Yes, my friends. Uncle Ben's created a rice that looks and tastes like white rice, but in actuality is whole grain rice! Wicked cool. I definitely know what it's like for my child to look at something brown and absolutely refuse to try it. (And I must say, I was like that for some time when I was little too, so I can't blame her.) WIth this, they think they are eating the white stuff when really you are getting nutrition into their needy little bodies.
Uncle Ben's is even pairing up with Missy Chase Lapine, author of "The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids' Favorite Meals". If you have issues getting your kids to eat healthy food, definitely check her out. She's got some great ideas!
Now, onto my review of this rice. It's honestly really good! It seriously does taste and look like white rice. I made my go-to favorite - Cheesy Mexican Rice - and it tastes just like it does when I make it with white Minute Rice. (Sorry, no pictures. I need to get better and remembering to take pictures with stuff like this!) And, it only takes ~10 minutes to make, which is great. And for the really good part... want to win some?! Of course you do!

Oh, and by the way, I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Uncle Ben’s and received samples to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, my opinions are strictly my own and were not influenced by the free stuff. :)
