Blog Tour and Review: Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice

We eat a lot of rice in our house. This is because my five year old son takes being a picky eater to the extreme! And now his little brother seems to be following in his footsteps. I can just about count on one hand the only meals this boy will eat at dinner time : mac'n cheese, veggie hot dogs, spaghetti, pizza and rice! He loves rice with black beans, and I make this for him about three nights a week. I know the black beans have a lot of protein and fiber, but I worry about feeding him so much white rice, and there is no way he will touch the healthier brown rice.

 Needless to say I was thrilled and eager to try out  Uncle Ben's New Whole Grain White Rice when I was asked to participate in this blog tour! Finally I had the chance to make my little guy his favorite dinner, and make it healthier for him.

The night I made the Uncle Ben's whole grain white rice, I must confess I was nervous. He is sooo picky that any little difference in his food can make him not want to eat it. Seriously, the rice has to be separate from the beans even.....no mixing of the food at all. So when he went to take his first bite, I think I literally held my breath, Thankfully, he did not seem to notice any difference and he ate all of it. Thank-you Uncle Ben!!

Now the hubby and my daughter were sternly forewarned that in the event they noticed a difference, they were to say NOTHING in front of my son, and to tell me their opinions later. The hubby said it was delicious and thought it even better than the regular white rice I usually make. My daughter, being 13, said it tasted a little different and too "healthy-like," whatever that means to a 13 year old. However, I must note here that she ate every bite as well.
