Easy Mealtime Hacks
I can’t remember the last time I spoke to someone who complained that their life wasn’t busy enough. In fact, now that I think about it, I can’t actually remember the last time I spoke with someone who said their life wasn’t busy. I am a busy momma that is constantly on the go, runs a business, and tries to maintain healthy relationships BUT I still like to feed my family healthy meals. Sometimes, this is extremely difficult with our daily schedules. I’m not afraid to admit that I am willing to accept a helping hand anytime one is offered. Without further adieu, Van’s Foods to the rescue!
Hello from Van’s Foods!
We know how busy life can be for Van’s foods fans. Between work, working out, parenting, driving, walking, riding, creating, days get full – fast.
Some meals are easy, and you’ve got plenty of time to plan, shop and put together something delicious.
Other times, there’s yoga or soccer or Scouts or a late meeting, and you need something fast and easy that you can still feel good about eating.
Which brings us to our gift to you this month – easy, nutritious mealtime hacks from your friends at Van’s. They’re all delicious, nutritious and a cinch to pull together.
Breakfast. To pack a quick protein punch, start with Greek yogurt and pair it with whatever fresh or frozen fruit you’ve got on hand. Add Van’s Soft Baked Whole Grain Granola Clusters and you have decadent flavor and a hearty, wholesome start to your day. (With taste like that, you’d never guess they’re gluten-free!)
Snack. Now before you put away those breakfast fixings, tuck that handy re-sealable bag of granola in your briefcase, purse or backpack. It’ll be there for you all day as a soft, chewy pick-me-up whenever the snacking urge strikes. The best part? You can feel great about every whole grain bite.
Dinner. For homemade feel in a fraction of the time, gather the following: Van’s new gluten-free Ultimate Cheddar Penne Pasta, a rotisserie chicken and the fresh or frozen veggie of your choice.
Warm up your veggies while your pasta is cooking – and take a moment to slice the chicken for serving. Season your veggies with salt and pepper and serve with the pasta and chicken. (For variety, you can also choose Van’s Rotini & Red Sauce or Creamy Herb & Garlic pasta.
No time for veggie prep? Grab some pre-cut crudités while you’re at the store, and embrace the convenience.
