 Shrimp, Kale, and Wild Rice Medley - Live Simply

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Lundberg Family Farms in conjunction with Brandfluential. All opinions are my own.

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 box Lundberg rice and wild Rice
  • 4 TB butter
  • 1 lb shrimp raw, shells removed
  • 2 cups kale washed, stems removed, and torn into pieces
  • 1/8 cup shallots finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 pinch salt to taste
  • 1 pinch black pepper to taste

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.)

  3. Sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. In the same pan, over medium-high heat, melt the butter.

  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.

    Real food is important to me and my family because i feel like we’ve gotten away from whats healthy and good for us, and not only for me and my husband sake, but for our 2 year old, i want to make sure we eat as healthy as possible.

  2. says: melinda s.

    I just had Colon Cancer and dealt with chemo..mind you we ate healthy prior to…but, I want my boys to know the importance of making healthy choices and take care of themselves.

    I want to get back to my foots in cooking making my own bread to making my own pasta. When spring comes I’m going to grow every thing down to the potatoes. I am thing too is getting mat from a farm like half a cow and half a steer it will be expensive now but in the long run it will be worth it to go out the back door instead of the market. If I could get a cow and chickens I would be set.

    Real food is important in getting our family back to optimum health and maintaining it. The time spent preparing real food shows a care for others that needs to be seen especially to our guests.

  5. says: Brooke Sopher

    Real Food is important to my family because it gives us control over our health. We think better, feel better and are making better choices for the environment as well.

  6. says: Diana

    Real food is very important to me because of the way my family and I were feeling from not eating good natural foods. We have been working hard on the way we eat and are feeling better. I lost my father to cancer 7 yrs ago and if I knew then what I know now things would have been very different.

  7. says: Emily

    Real food is important to me because it is important that my family is being nourished in a way that I know only real food can do!

  8. says: Lori

    Oh…This sounds and looks really yummy, and it looks like a dish that my whole family would enjoy. I have been on a primal eating lifestyle and have lost 10 lbs by just eliminating gluten, but I do give myself a cheat day every so often. This looks like a perfect dish for that day.

    Real food is important to me because I have oral allergy syndrome. so, knowing what’s in my food and keeping it pure helps me avoid allergic reactions.

    Real food is so important to my husband and I after finding out that I have food allergies, thyroid issues, hormone imbalances and may not be able to have children unless we changed our diet drastically. I realized that the food I had been taught was healthy just wasn’t working for me and we have totally redone our menus and food choices. We both love it and hope to pass on the value of real food to our children someday. The biggest struggle is finding healthy options that fit our budget.

  11. says: Ruth

    First and foremost, we desire to honor the Lord with what we put in our bodies. We also want excellent nutrition, sustainability, and wise stewardship of God-given resources.

  12. says: Danielle F

    Real food is just food. All the other stuff (fast, processed, etc) isn’t. So real food is important because it’s the only way our bodies will be fueled properly and function normally.

  13. says: Josh Deutchman

    Eating real food and continually removing negative influences (e.g. fake foods) are key components of continually improving health/wellness/vitality. That is important.

  14. says: angie c.

    the state of your health so often reflects the way you choose to eat…this is why real foods are important to me. i want to eat healthy to be healthy.

  15. says: Carrie

    Can’t wait to give this recipe a try, it looks delicious! It would be made even better if I got some of it for free. 🙂

    1. says: Carrie

      Oh, I guess I wasn’t paying attention. Real food has been growing increasingly more important to me since the birth of my son. I want to give him the best start I can and also resolve some lingering health issues of my own.

  16. says: Katie Roch

    Real food is important to me and my family because it gives us comfort in knowing what we’re eating. Many processed foods have ingredients we can’t pronounce, let alone know what they are, so we don’t want to eat them.

  17. says: Christina Marie

    Real Food is important to me and my family because it doesn’t contain a lot of harmful chemicals. Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. says: Sarah S

    Real Food is important to me and my family because I need to know that we are getting real nutrition. It is much healthier to get essential nutrients from natural sources than it is to try to compensate with supplementation.

  19. says: angela

    Real food is better tasting and much healthier. I like knowing what is in my food and knowing that nothing is in my food! LOL! Thanks!

  20. says: Kim Kihega

    It is important because I want to keep my kids and myself as healthy as we can possibly be. I want the best for my children.

    I love this recipe! I have made it twice already. I have a question. I need to make this for dinner on Friday to take to my in-laws and I work. What can I do to prepare in advance so that I can bring it over warm and ready to eat. I only have about 30-45 minutes before I have to leave to go there and I am also making a double batch this time. Thank you 🙂

    1. says: Kristin Marr

      So happy to hear you like it so much. I crave this simple dish regularly ;). I would suggest making the rice the night before. Then saute the Kale mix and shrimp just before the gathering. Just heat the rice and mix together.

  22. says: Kathleen Ophelan

    This recipe looks and sounds amazing. Real food is important to my family because we try to live a healthy lifestyle. Real food makes it easier for us!

  23. says: susansmoaks

    Real food is important to me and my family because we live by the mantra to let food be our medicine. We try to be healthy and we want to enjoy life. I am tony l smoaks on rafflecopter.

    Real food is important to me and my family because there are far too many chemicals being added to food these days. Simple, whole foods can do wonders for your health!!

  25. says: Cheryl Reinhardt

    Real food is important because we get enough sugars and dyes, and artificial ingredients in our food so eating healthy is important.

  26. says: Nichole

    Real food is important to me because I want my boys to grown up be healthy and happy. I want to give them the best start in life that I can.

  27. says: Lorie

    I didnot know all this information about Lundberg. Thanks for the info 🙂 I would not feel bad falling back on this as a family side dish on busy nights!

  28. says: Christie

    I am looking for ways to simplify my life in all areas and becoming aware of the processed foods that fill many of our kitchens has been just a part of that. Plus I physically feel so much better when I am eating a predominantly real food diet. Gaining the knowledge I have now I can see so much how real food is vital to our health and especially for children.

  29. says: Brandy

    Too many family members with diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol and cancer for me to not eat real food and prepare it for my family. Anything I can do to keep them healty.

    It is important because Use of a gluten-free claim is voluntary, unlike mandatory disclosure of major allergens, one of which is wheat, the primary source of gluten. There also are many hidden sources of gluten. The most common are binders, colors, flavors, seasonings and texturizers.
