Got a Great Rice Bowl Idea? It Could Win $500 Worth of Groceries in the Bowl Us Over Contest!

I have a tough time coming up with nutritious meals that all the picky eaters in my family will eat, but one thing that everyone loves is rice! Rice is delicious, nutritious and economical. Enriched white rice and whole grain brown rice cost only about 10 cents per serving, contain more than 15 vitamins and minerals, are low in calories, and sodium- and cholesterol-free, and are even gluten-free! I also love that rice is versatile. There are so many things you can do with it!

Rice can be paired with veggies, chicken or fish, tofu, and so much more. You can add spices for a Mexican, Indian, or Mediterranean twist! These combinations make great rice bowls that almost everyone loves. Do you have a unique rice bowl idea? September is National Rice Month (NRM), and the USA Rice Federation is celebrating with its Bowl Us Over contest! The goal of this contest is to educate consumers about the versatility, great taste and health benefits of rice.

Your rice bowl idea could win you up to $500 worth of groceries or an Aroma® Rice Cooker. It’s easy to enter: Just go to www.usarice.com/bowlusover from now until September 30, 2010, and submit your ideas to transform U.S. rice into a healthy, quick and unique rice bowl meal! All you need is a 25-word description, NOT a formal recipe. First place winners will receive a prize of $500, second place is $250, third place is $150; seven runners-up will receive an Aroma® Rice Cooker.

Good luck and happy cooking!

DISCLOSURE: As a thank-you for spreading the word about this terrific contest, I will receive an Aroma Rice Cooker. No other compensation has been provided.
