One of our goals for 2016 is to focus on meal planning again.  When we actually sit down and plan for every meal and grocery shop in advance we save a ton of money through out the month but also eat healthier.  Another goal that most of us have in the New Year I am sure.  Like most families, we are on the go a lot - we have dance, Taekwondo, and school events that make for crazy evenings.  Sometimes I feel like the planning and shopping is the easiest part of meal planning, actually preparing and enjoying those meals is the biggest challenge.  I decided I had to find ways to make our food prep easier but healthier than stopping in the drive thru on the way home.  


While shopping at King Soopers for our meal plan items I stumbled on Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips in the freezer section.  I instantly had a number of great meal options in my head.  We are a chicken eating family, the kids LOVE chicken but frankly, I do not have the energy every evening to bake, grill or cook chicken.  Solution found!!  

These Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips are perfect for any size meal too, you can make it a full meal with great sides or use the chicken strips for toppings or additions to a recipe. Also, for us we love that they are made with 100% All Natural Ingredients and White Meat Chicken and no preservatives.  Parents approved, kid tested!

  2. The pasta avocado wrap looks amazing. I am trying to cook or make meals more this year and this would be so easy to make after a busy day of teaching. I can even get the girls involved in making dinner.
