With our sometimes busy and crazy schedules, dinners sometimes have to be quick and on the ready. We try to eat as a family most evenings, and while we are quite successful at it, sometimes it’s not a reality that I have 30+ minutes to cook a meal that everybody will enjoy when it dinner time rolls around. That means that we sometimes have to depend on prepared foods to help us with meals on those super busy days. Thankfully, there are a lot of options that meet our needs.
Udi’s Sweet Potato Crust Chicken BBQ Pizza
Udi’s BBQ Flavored Chicken Pizza has crust made from sweet potatoes and is topped with mozzarella and smoked gouda cheese, sweet BBQ sauce, and white meat chicken. It’s gluten free and grain free. It will hit that spot for needed crunch and pizza! You’ll have a meal in less than 10 minutes. Serve it with a quick salad and you are ready!
Gardein Classic Meatless Meatballs
Meatballs are a big win here. The kids love them. Sometimes, I don’t have thawed meat on the ready to create them, or I don’t have the time. Gardein Classic Meatless Meatballs are always certified vegan, non-GMO, dairy free and kosher. I can have them in the freezer and keep sauce and noodles in the pantry. They are so easy the kids can help get spaghetti and meatballs ready in no time. With 14g of protein, and ready in as little as 8 minutes, toss into your favorite sauce – and you’ve got dinner! It’s great for a Monday without meat!
Birds Eye Veggie MadeTM Mac & Cheese
Admittedly, I just recently learned my kids like a super creamy mac & cheese. Who knew? With this new Birds Eye Veggie MadeTM Mac & Cheese they can now enjoy the flavor of classic comfort food with 100% vegetable pasta. Varieties include Mac & Cheese Elbows with Cheddar Cheese and Mac & Cheese Shells with White Cheddar Cheese. All of the varieties are made with 100% vegetable pasta, 1 serving of vegetables per serving, no artificial flavors, preservatives or dyes and made with real cheese.
We let the kids microwave it (right in the bag) and served it with some quickly cooked sautéed chicken and broccoli. We’ll have to get two bags the next time we serve it because they devoured it.
Healthy Choice Café Steamers Grilled Chicken Marinara with Parmesan
Enjoy this deliciously inspired dish, featuring juicy grilled white meat chicken, al dente penne pasta and crisp broccoli in a zesty marinara sauce. It comes topped with freshly grated Parmesan and has no preservatives. Lunch is ready in minutes with this grilled chicken marinara.
Birds Eye Veggie MadeTM Garlic Chicken
This is a single serve bowl that provides a delicious and nutritious alternative to your favorite frozen meals in just a few minutes. It is made with premium ingredients and the pasta is made from 100% vegetables. Now you can get a half-cup of vegetables per serving in a tasty noodle form!
