Lundberg Family Farms Organic Ready To Heat Rice Review
Being a fulltime working single mother definitely can be challenging at times. Some of my personal struggles include finding time to load my girls and make a trip to the grocery store, waiting weeks to tackle all of our laundry, and trying to keep my house clean with 2 littles always looking for some way to make a mess. In todays society there are a million ways to get "help" with a lot of these things such as pickup services like Instacart or even food delivery services like Postmates. I recently attended a panel called "Leading From Any Chair" and got a chance to hear from some women VP's apart of my employer and of course one of the questions brought up was, how to you maintain a Work-Life balance having executive level positions. One of the VP's said "Have someone else do things for you." Of course she was referring to the services I mentioned above but unfortunately we can't all afford to "have someone else do it". I always find myself asking what are some reasonable ways I can lighten the mommy load, without breaking the bank.
One way I try to make things easier, is by finding quick meals that don’t take too much time to prep or cook. I grew up having what to some might be considered an early dinner around maybe 5ish but being that I work fulltime plus factoring in travel time and picking up the girls from daycare, dinner might be done around 7 depending on what I make. My little’s however complain of hunger the moment I walk in the daycare doors and the complaints just get louder and louder as we get settled at home and I began to prep for our late meal. So finding quick and easy meals is a must that way we don’t have to wait too long to eat. Thanks to Mom’s Meet I had the opportunity to try Lundberg Family Farms Organic Ready To Heat Rice! I was sent Spanish, Turmeric, and Coconut flavors to try and hands down our favorite is Coconut! It literally was done in minutes, combined with some quick microwave frozen broccoli and a rotisserie chicken, our meal was done in less than 10 minutes! If only every meal could be this easy!
