Have you ever gotten to the point where you feel like you’ve spoiled your diet by eating too much junk food and need to detox and eat healthy for a bit? Well I am SO there right now. I love being a food blogger and would love to make it my full time job, but the one thing I really dislike is how much weight I’ve gained after making so many delicious treats. It’s a necessary evil in this line of work but I was so happy to partner with RiceSelect recently and use their Texmati Brown Rice to create not only a healthy meal, but a delicious One Pot Garlic and Herb Chicken and Rice.
If you read my blog regularly, you know how obsessed I am with Dutch oven cooking and one pot meals. They make my life so much easier. A lot of New Yorkers don’t cook at home because life here is so hectic and ordering in is by far the easier route. Since I started blogging, I cook more than I ever have and I love it. Making one pot meals like this has made my life easier. I don’t know when they became a “thing” but it’s definitely here to stay.
Healthy has the connotation of bland, which is unfortunate because this is anything but. I use RiceSelect a lot in my cooking and I choose to use them because their rice is aromatic and flavorful. If I’m limiting sugary treats, I need to make sure I’m eating something just as delicious. I also really like their Texmati Brown Rice because unlike some other varieties of brown rice that take forever to cook, this was done in a similar amount of time to white rice. Work has been crazy lately, so anything to make dinner easier is amazing.
