I have a question, I looove Zatarain's Dirty Rice, but I notice they have a regular Dirty Rice and a Dirty Brown Rice, and I automatically thought the brown rice would be healthier, but the brown rice is about 10 calories higher. so, I was wondering if you could tell me if either of them are healthy? I'm trying to watch calories but I'm dyinggg for some of that. Thanks!

The brown rice is better for you than white. The problem with most packaged things like this is the sodium content. You can cut the fat by not using as much (or not using any) of the butter or oil that it calls for. Otherwise it isn't technically an unhealthy item.
