With so much processed food in America, it can be challenging to find a healthy meal. One of my favorite types of cuisine is Indian, not only because it’s usually quite healthy, but it has an abundance of flavor. AMIRA is a producer and exporter of Indian food products, including oils, snacks, ready-to-eat meals, dairy products and basmati rice.

Naturally, we had to see what all of the fuss was about so we enjoyed a lunch consisting of AMIRA basmati rice. Their rice comes from the foot hills of the Himalayas and is aged up to a year before being processed. It is then prepared at a state of the art treatment facility to ensure a quality outcome. We incorporated our basmati rice in a delicious grain bowl, which is an easy, fast, and nutritious way to dine.

Our bowl, which came in a perfectly portioned ECOlunchbox, included: natural basmati, spinach, chicken, shredded carrots, roasted corn, scallions, avocado, sliced almonds, and was topped with a sesame ginger dressing.  Not only did this allow us to enjoy all of the nutritious qualities of protein, nuts and vegetables, but the rice itself has outstanding qualities. It’s not only low in fat, but it is low in sodium, as well as starch, plus is contains all eight essential amino acids and folic acid. It is gluten-free, contains 20% more fiber than other brands, and is packed with magnesium.

Not sure how to make your own grain bowl? Here are some suggestions:
