Anyone who knows me or is a regular reader of the blog knows that I am Busy. With a capital B. With a full time (demanding job), Parent Palace, and my two wonderful kiddos, I am officially a mom on the go. The past few years, what that meant for me is that I virtually ignored myself and my own health. Workouts were put off, I missed doctor’s appointments, and eating healthy was not a choice that I made. If you’ve been following us this year, you’ll know that I’ve been focused on getting healthy. I’ve refocused from my never-ending goal to lose weight to living healthy. Moving my body and keeping bad stuff out of my diet. Balance!
I’ll be honest – sometimes this feels selfish. When I spend an hour running instead of cuddling with my daughter on the couch, I feel guilty. Because I share custody with my ex, my time is limited with them and I like to squeeze in everything I can. But I’ve come to realize that by ignoring my own health, I’m taking something away from them to. So as a family, we are focusing on being healthier – but our busy schedule can definitely interfere, which is why I was super excited to find a great option for quick meals – Healthy Choice Simply Café Steamers!
There is a great variety of choices too – the Healthy Choice Simply Café Steamers line features almost a dozen meals, and they ALL have less than 310 calories and have more than 18 grams of protein. Some of my favorite varieties are Grilled Chicken and Broccoli and Meatball Marinara (yum!).
Healthy Choice is the only major brand in the frozen meals section that can call 100% of its products “healthy” as approved by the FDA. They use 100% natural proteins and no artificial ingredients, so I can even feel good about giving them to my teenager when her schedule interferes with eating on a regular schedule! After practice for a school event until 5 and a lot of homework, I was able to give my daughter a yummy and fast dinner of Lemon Herb Chicken without getting take out!
The cool thing about the Healthy Choice Simply Café Steamers is that they are the first and only meals that feature a tray-in-tray steam cooking method that seperates the ingredients during heating:
What this means is that your veggies are super crisp – no sogginess. You can definitely see and taste the difference!
Go check out www.facebook.com/healthychoice or www.HealthyChoice.com to learn more and see all of their varieties! You can find them in the freezer aisle of the grocery store, and they won’t break your bank at $3.29!
