Daily, I feel like I’m grasping for minutes as they zoom past. I wake in the morning, make breakfast, clean dishes, and before I know it, my family is begging for dinner. Didn’t I just feed you? The blessing and curse of motherhood.

As a real food mom, feeding my family healthy, nutrient-dense food is a huge priority. Even on those nights as I stand in the kitchen unprepared to feed the hungry bellies eagerly waiting to be filled. Finding quick and simple, yet nourishing and real solutions can be a challenge.

Last week, I was given the opportunity to try Lundberg entrees. Lundberg Family Farms is a company I’ve loved for years. A company I trust and whose products I feel confident stocking on my shelves. Lundberg rice is non-GMO and gluten-free. The idea of a box that actually contains 100% real ingredients I can quickly prepare on those busy, time-escaping nights, is sweet music to this mom’s ears.

Since I’m working on keeping our family’s real food budget in check, I decided to fix a dish using the Lundberg Rice and Wild Rice accompanied by in-season kale and local Florida shrimp. Inexpensive, yet hearty enough to nourish my family of four. Just one box and a few simple ingredients. Within 30 minutes, the seasoned rice was cooked to perfection and the shrimp and kale were sauteed.  A delicious, hearty, nutrient-rich meal the whole family devoured. The kids even asked for seconds.

Real food doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. With one box of Lundberg rice and a few simple ingredients, an entire real food meal can be enjoyed in just minutes. Delicious, hearty, and simple. The way real food is meant to be.

Shrimp, Kale, and Wild Rice Melody
 
Ingredients
  • 1 box of Lundberg Rice and Wild Rice
  • 4 TB pastured butter
  • 1 lb. shrimp, raw, shells removed
  • 2 cups kale, washed, stems removed, and torn into pieces
  • ⅛ cup shallots, finely chopped
  • ⅓ cup parmesean cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. In a medium-size saucepan, cook the rice according to directions on the box. (Note: I cooked the rice in (homemade chicken broth) in place of water.)
  2. Once the rice is cooked, remove the rice from the pan. Set aside.
  3. Sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. In the same pan, over medium-high heat, melt the butter.
  5. Add in the shrimp and shallots and saute for 4 minutes. The shrimp will begin to turn pink. Add in the kale. Continue to cook for another 3 minutes until the kale is wilted and the shrimp is pink.
  6. Turn off the heat.
  7. Add the rice back to the pot. Mix together with the shrimp and kale.
  8. Add the grated cheese to the mixture and combine.
  9. Serve warm.
