Product Talk: Brown Rice


When I was in college I had a roommate that absolutely loved rice. I felt like we had rice at every meal! She would always pull out her rice maker and every night she would fix us a different kind of rice; rice was her thing.

Rice is a popular food in many cultures. Think about it every time you go to a Mexican restaurant it never fails whatever meal you order you’re more than likely going to get rice as a side dish. Another culture that rice is popular in is the Caribbean culture. In the Caribbean, they add green peas and coconut to their rice, which makes a delicious sweet treat!

When strolling down the rice aisle you’ll see a range of NuVal scores, you’ll find scores anywhere between 2 and 91 with the average score being a 39. Full Circle Brown Rice has a score of 82, which is an excellent score! Try this Caribbean Coconut Rice recipe with Full Circle Brown Rice!

1 1/2 cup water

Family Matters: Dog’s Bad Breath


Dogs love to show their affection for their owners by giving them a sloppy wet kiss, but sometimes their breath is very unpleasant. Bad breath is due to having a build up of bacteria; it could be a simple problem of plaque, where you would just have to get their teeth cleaned, to a serious problem with your dog’s digestive tract. If your dog’s breath becomes unbearable, you may want to set up an appointment with your veterinarian.

Here are some simple ways to help prevent your dog from having bad breath. What do you normally do when your breath is bad? You probably brush your teeth or place gum or mint in your mouth; do the same thing for your dog. You can brush your dog’s teeth with toothpaste and a toothbrush that is specifically made for dogs. When making your dog homemade treats add a little mint to the treat to freshen their breath. Periodically feeding your dog hard food and giving them a hard chew toy will help reduce the build up of plaque.
