A Fresh Start To Our New Year! #31Days
The beginning of the year can sometimes lead us to making unhealthy choices so... we've decided to make healthy eating our 2011 New Year Resolution. I got the opportunity to do a shop with Collective Bias on Lean Cuisine dinners and The Skinny Cow desserts #31days. I thought this would be a great start to our year. My family and I went to Walmart to purchase the products and found there were so many to choose from... a nice variety for everyday eating. The Lean Cuisine was at really great price of $1.98 and the Skinny Cow was a little more at $3.98 but still within the competitors prices.
I found that all the meals had a good source of fiber, were low in fat, and the calories were low for each meal. For example with Lean Cuisine... My son Tyler chose the Shrimp Alfredo. In that meal there are 250 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 3 grams of fiber per serving. I chose the Alfredo Pasta with Chicken & Broccoli. In that meal there are 300 calories, 6 grams of fat, and 3 grams of fiber. And for The Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches each are 140 calories, 2 grams of fat, and 3 grams of fiber. I personally thought this was very healthy.
Everything was very easy and convinient to cook. A very quick and healthy dinner for our busy family. I find it hard to cook homemade healthy meals on busy activity days, by the time I get home from work its already almost time for all the after school activities. We would always, in the past, eat unhealthy on all those days. This will definitelly be a great new way to eating quick and also eating healthy.
Here is my Whrrl of my shop. With all the shopping, Preperations, and the family trying our new way of living :)
