Seeds of Change Moroccan Style Rice with Brown Rice & Quinoa

Who says whole grains can’t taste great? This organic brown rice and quinoa combo delivers serious Moroccan flavor along with nutrition to boot. And more spice means less salt. With only 240 milligrams of sodium per cup, this grain duo is way lower in sodium than most boxed sides. It’s also an instant energizer courtesy of ample complex carbs and B vitamins like niacin and thiamin that help convert food to energy. Each serving offers up 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber for a reasonable 180 calories and only 1.5 grams of fat. For a veggie boost, toss in a handful of shredded carrots.
