Natural, Single-Origin Food Products From The Real Co. #Foodie

Recently our family discovered The Real Co. This company offers three food products that are all natural, organic, and single-origin. I'll be honest, it's something I never really considered before, but The Real Co has made me more aware of things such as how many middle men there are for most foods we buy and eat. We were able to try all three products from the Real Co, and they were delicious!



The first product we tried was the white basmati rice. I actually used this to make some Mexican fried rice, and it turned out very well. This was my first time eating basmati rice, so I was very pleased to see that the entire family enjoyed that flavor, and we won't have any issues using basmati rice in the future. I'll share the recipe below for this Mexican rice, but first let me tell you about the other two products.

The Himalayan Pink Rock Salt was another new one for me. In fact, I was amazed at all the health benefits of this salt! Did you know it can help lower blood pressure, improve circulation, help your intestines absorb nutrients, and prevent muscle cramping, just to name a few benefits?! It's very easy to use; it comes crushed and ready to sprinkle on any food, or even use in food preparation. Definitely something you'll want to try!



The last product is the raw cane sugar, again a product I have never used before. If you're familiar with raw cane sugar, then you know the darker the sugar, the more rich the flavor. As you can see by the pictures, this is a nice molasses-colored sugar that definitely gives you that great flavor. It dissolves quickly in hot or cold beverages, so even if you're wanting to add a bit to your iced tea, it will dissolve. 



As you can tell, we were very pleased with all three products from The Real Co. If you're looking for organic, natural, single-origin food products, I recommend you check them out. And now, as promised, here's the recipe for Mexican Rice using The Real Co's white basmati rice!


Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic 
  • 1 onion, diced 
  • 1 1/2 cups basmati rice 
  • 1 can tomato sauce 
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups vegetable broth 
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 bag frozen peas & carrots 
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin 
  • 1 can diced tomatoes





Instructions:
Heat olive oil, add garlic and onion and sauté until onions are translucent. Stir in rice, toast 2-3 minutes. Add in tomato sauce and broth, simmer 2 minutes. Stir in corn, carrots and peas, chili powder and cumin. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until rice is cooked. Add tomatoes, serve immediately.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
