You wanna know something? I try to get my kid to eat whole grains – but I won’t hardly eat them myself. I love whole grain cereals, but bread is a whole ‘nother ballgame. I just can’t do it. Unless I toast it….yeah, I can sorta eat whole grain bread toasted. Otherwise, I feel like I’m chewing on a cereal box.
So…I try to get my whole grains in other forms like the cereals but then I found out that Suddenly Salad (love their bacon/ranch pasta salad. Mmmm.) came out with – wait for it…
The new Suddenly Grain Salad™ mixes! Yes’sireee. And omgeee. They’re GOOD!!! I love the taste, texture, and the way it looks. It just looks pretty to me, and I love to eat pretty food! The new Suddenly Grain Salad™ mixes have blends like brown rice, wild rice, quinoa and then they’re dolled up with herbs and spices in a boil-in-a-bag for easy cooking! They also have dried fruit (YUM), vegetables and/or nut mix-ins along with a dressing packet to top the whole thing off!
We were sent 3 different varieties to try and we tried the Harvest Grains one first. The Southwest Grains and the Tuscan Grains are still in my cabinet, but I’m telling you – if they’re as good as this Harvest Grains one, then I’m ALLLLLL in!!!! I’m in love with this stuff. The Harvest Grain variety includes yummy dried cranberries and almonds.
Dale isn’t much of a rice man, so that’s just fine. I get to keep it all to myself. I made it for lunch, and had plenty with some leftover for the next day too. But these are perfect to incorporate into your main dish or as a side dish for a quick weeknight meal.
If you wanna try these new Suddenly Grain Salad™ mixes, you can find them in your rice and grains, or pasta aisle at the grocery store!
