Seeds Of Change
Dare I say that the kids are going back to school soon? Did you just cheer with joy? Me too, me too! As much as I love when the kids are in school, I absolutely dread coming up with lunch ideas that are not only healthy but that my kids will actually eat.
Apparently, according to a few teachers over the years, some of my food choices are not to the teacher’s idea of healthy. Lets just say that my oldest is one of the pickiest kids I have ever met in my life. She is getting better with age but for many years it didn’t matter what I put in her lunch she wouldn’t touch it.
Lunches don’t have to be boring, they don’t have to be sandwiches all the time, and they don’t have to be elaborate Bento style lunches with perfectly cut out butterfly shaped fruit. They can be simple, quick and delicious.
Today I am sharing a super easy, under 10 minutes to make – yup you can make this fresh before the kids head off to school, lunch recipe using Seeds of Change Spanish Style Wholegrain Rice with Quinoa, Red Bell Peppers and Corn that the kids will love!

Seeds of Change Spanish Style Chicken Wrap
- 1 Fresh, Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
- Seeds Of Change Spanish Style Rice
- Longo’s Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce
- Slice your chicken breast into two thinner pieces, then slice into strips. If your strips are too long feel free to cut them in half.
- In a frying pan on med-high heat cook your chicken breast strips until they have a light golden brown colour starting to form on them.
- While your chicken is cooking pop your Seeds Of Change Spanish Style Rice in the microwave for 90 seconds following instructions on packaging.
- Turn your heat down to medium and add in 1-2 tbsp’s of Longo’s Hickory Smoke BBQ sauce. Continue to cook until the BBQ sauce starts to caramelize on the chicken.
- If making for a school lunch allow the chicken and rice to slightly cool before assembling the wrap. Send the salsa in a small container for your child to put on before they eat.
- Alternatively, you can send the items in containers and your child can assemble at lunch time.
- You can also add some greens to the wrap for a nice crunch!
We have been incorporating Seeds of Change’s whole line into our lunch and dinner meals and I have to say the kids are loving every bite! I don’t think I have had to remind the kids to finish their meal once when Seeds of Change was on the table. It is so easy and versatile, it is a great addition to any meal or recipe.
So next time you are out shopping keep your eyes peeled for Seeds of Change on your grocers shelf. My absolute faves are the Spanish Style and the Quinoa Brown Rice with Garlic – YUM!
