Why: These days, home cooked meals are scarce, and time is always of the essence. And so are whole grains. Here's a quick (90 seconds!), whole grain Calorie Bargain.


The Health Bonus: Whole grains are good for you (for reasons like dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, etc...).


What We Liked Best: A short cut to whole grains? Even better!


What We Liked Least: Some members of our tasting panel aren't crazy about eating microwaved foods. (But they were happy to see that you can also prepare this product stove top!! NOTE: This takes just a bit longer than 90 seconds,) Also, this was one of the only ones that we thought was great--the others have too many "unknown" ingredients for our taste.



What It Replaces: White rice, cous cous, or "regular" brown rice that takes over 30 minutes to prepare.



The Price: Suggested retail of about $1.99.


Offerings: There are 12 varieties of Ready Rice, but they are not all Calorie Bargain picks. The Whole Grain Brown is our favorite.
