Minute Ready to Serve Brown Rice & Quinoa Cups



Celiac.com 08/24/2017 - It's rare to find a quick, nutritious and healthy lunch or snack. Minute's Ready to Serve Brown Rice & Quinoa fits this bill, and contains 16% of daily fiber, which is hard to find in most gluten-free alternatives. Plus it's ready in only 60 seconds

I was also surprised by the minimal ingredients in these microwavable cups. Not counting water, they contain only 5 ingredients.

The first thing I noticed when trying a cup for lunch was how quick and easy it could be made, and the second thing was how good it was! The rice and quinoa are perfectly moist, and the blend is perfectly salted.

I've been able to think of more reasons to have these around than just for lunch or a snack. For example I am thinking about using them as a base for this year's Thanksgiving stuffing. It would take only 3-4 cups for my recipe, and would reduce the amount of work involved by a lot.

I've also used these as a side dish with dinner. The other night I made salmon for my family and heated up 4 cups at the same time, added some broccoli on the side, and had a healthy, gluten-free dinner that was much easier to prepare due to having the cups handy.

Another idea I had is to stir in peanut butter and honey to the heated rice. I know it sounds weird but I bet it would taste good and would make a great snack.

Hi everyone. I was just wondering if anyone knew of an easy way to determine whether one's gastrointestinal reaction is to gluten or beta-glucan. Cheers, Lex

Thank you i have the colonoscopy on Tuesday and am dreading the prep more than anything lol. I think what ever the outcome I will try a gluten free diet to see if it helps with the symptoms. I've read so many stories of people going gluten free and symptoms such as depression, anxiety...

A positive on any one celiac test should lead to an endoscopy/biopsies being done by a gastroenterologist. You should keep eating gluten until the endoscopy is done.

Hi LexieA, It's perfectly ok to grieve or feel down because of a diagnosis of celiac disease. Feelings are not obligated to perform on command. But, over time you can adjust to the new diet reality and even like it. Getting used to eating mostly whole foods and more natural foods is a goo...

Hertzya, Congrats to you for sticking with your service in spite of celiac disease. That seems like it would be hard to do, And thanks for your service to our country!
