I love strawberries. If I had to pick a favorite fruit, although I love most of them, I’d have to say strawberries are right at the top. Sweet and tangy flavor, and they go with so many things! So it’s only natural that I want them for my healthy afternoon snack as often as I can. I want something filling, too, so mixing the fruit in with some of this quick Minute® Ready to Serve Rice cup makes it absolutely perfect!

I love that each Minute® Ready to Serve Rice cup is a perfect, portable solution for a quick mini-meal or snack because you can eat it on-the-go, straight from the cup. In just 60 seconds, you have fully cooked rice that you can enjoy as-is (moist & tasty!) or use in your favorite quick recipes! Stir in some ‘plus ups’, like strawberries here, and make it your own! For more Stir-In ideas, see HERE.

If you’re looking for a wholesome option, Minute® Ready to Serve Rice provides easy portion control since it’s conveniently packaged in two individual single-serve cups. Grab one and go! Hubby loves taking these to work, since he can just quickly heat it and take it to his desk with no hassle.

As promised, I’m also sharing this ‘rushed morning’ breakfast to help your hustle in the A.M. be a bit more pleasant! All I do is take a Minute® Ready to Serve Rice cup and cook it as directed, meanwhile cooking an egg. When they’re both done, mix them together and add some chopped ham bits, a little bit of salt and pepper, and a dash of soy sauce. Fried rice that’s amazing, plus crazy fast!

This especially comes in handy on those mornings when we’re so busy with the kids and getting ready for the day, breakfast for ourselves completely slips our minds! Hubby can take one to work quickly, and I can make mine fast then give the kids attention. Totally saves us from starving for hours, spending a ton of time, plus it’s really filling to start the day off right!
