New Product - Instant Brown Rice

Last Saturday, Shelf Reliance announced Instant Brown Rice as our newest THRIVE Foods product! 
Take a look at Chef Todd’s Creamy Chicken and Rice recipe and video below for a delicious meal idea. Order today to try our newest THRIVE food, and stay tuned to find out what 3 other great THRIVE products are being launched over the next month!  This product is exclusive to Home Party consultants and customers until October 10th.

Later today, another new product will be announced - hopefully it won't take me a week to get it posted like the Instant Brown Rice did.

One of my favorite things about THRIVE Foods - the ingredients!  Here are the ingredients for the Instant Brown Rice: Precooked parboiled long grain brown rice.  That's it... brown rice.  The Instant Brown Rice has an Unopened Shelf Life of 7 years and an Opened Shelf Life of 1 year (based on optimal storage conditions).
