I’m so excited to announce that I’ve been asked by Tyson Foods to be part of the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products Blogger Brigade!! This means that for the next few months, I’ll be sharing some great recipes, meal ideas, and giveaways as part of the “Countdown to a Better You“! To help motivate you to make it to summer looking and feeling your best, the “Countdown to a Better You” program offers delicious guilt-free recipes and prizes to reward those looking to make better eating choices. The program kicked off just a couple of weeks ago and runs until June 21, 2013–the first day of summer!! This all is right in-line with everything I’ve been doing this year on my healthier living quest! In fact, I just recently posted a delicious recipe for some guilt-free, easy, quick & delicious fajitas using Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken. Super yum! And, remember some of the Hungry Girl Tyson® Grilled & Ready® recipes I shared earlier in the year? There are some GREAT ideas there–recipes like the pizza-fied chicken and greek chicken tacos! They seriously look delicious! And SO simple too! I love that with the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products, you can make a tasty, fairly low-calorie meal without having to spend tons of time in the kitchen. Because, let’s face it, the reality is that sometimes we just don’t have time to be prepping everything from scratch, spending 30 minutes or more making a meal. And, it seems like the majority of Americans agree! Take a look at this infographic…
80% of Americans would like spend less than 30 minutes cooking dinner. Sometimes, I don’t mind cooking a nice dinner that takes a while to prepare. But, around here, the hour before dinner is the “witching-hour”. Seriously, without fail, the kids are CAH-RAZY at that time every single night! Fighting, crying, whining, clamoring for food. So, many times, I need to make something as quickly as possible!
Unfortunately though SO many of the convenience foods are NOT the healthiest nor good for your waist-line. Definitely not the best way to make a “better you”. I don’t even care to admit the number of nights that Mr. Mom Endeavors just picked up some sort of take-out or fast food because of this. But, I’m pleased to say that’s rarely happened so far this year!!! So, I’m glad that products like Tyson® Grilled & Ready® exist. Something to help make your meal preparation faster and easier, without sacrificing some of your goals!
