I've mentioned this before, but we've made the conscious effort the past 6 months or so to strive for a more healthy lifestyle. The biggest change was cutting down significantly on carbs, which meant no more marshmallow cereals in the morning (what?!). And it's been going pretty well. On top of healthy eating, we're able to do fun things like runs as a family...
But back to the food - - with this switch, we're adjusting, but it's still hard to come put with last-minute easy meals. Most healthy eating we do is a meat and salad and garden veggies, etc, and it takes prep work. So we still needed a way to get that healthy lifestyle in a hurry. So when I had the opportunity to try out Lean Cuisine Honestly Good, I jumped at the chance - just the thing we need for those super-busy evenings running from activity to activity (piano, football practice, church activities - you know what I mean).
There are just times when you need FAST, but still want a healthy option. We tried out these meals and yum, I was impressed. I mean really, does this look like it was made in just a few minutes??
The kids kept raving about them "these are so good! can I try some of yours? yum!"
It comes with the sauce separate, which I think really helps with the freshness. You cook the meal a few minutes, then add the sauce over the top, then cook a couple more minutes. Easy. They are full of 100% all natural, wholesome ingredients.
- Together with their farmers, they’re donating a portion of the vegetables grown for LEAN CUISINE HONESTLY GOOD meals to local communities.
Now, we're doing pretty good - running a few times a week (not crazy - just a mile-ish) and eating pretty healthily. But we have this "cheat weekend" philosophy. It makes the week go easier because instead of saying "I can't have treats" we just aim for "I'll have that on the weekend". And do we ever!
So - - make your week healthy. And not just the days where you have time to make a healthy choice, but the crazy-busy days too! Honestly Good Lean Cuisine Meals can help. And they're super easy to get because you can just pick them up at Target when you're doing your other shopping. Win-win.
