One of the big excuses as to why folks eat junk is because they don’t have time to make dinner – or to think about what they are going to have for dinner. Some say it’s easier to pick up a phone and order a pizza or Chinese food. When in reality if you have foods in your refrigerator in freezer that are precooked and only need heating up to consume you can have dinner on the table in 15 minutes without much effort.
I had purchased some Bob Evan’s home fries to have with breakfast one day and I also purchased some Simply Smart Lightly Breaded Chicken from the refrigerator section to try out. One night my boyfriend and I had no idea what we wanted to eat and when he mentioned ordering out I remembered we had these items in the fridge.
The chicken went into the toaster oven, the home fries into a non-stick skillet and dinner was done in 15 minutes. 4.5 oz of chicken strips, 6 ounces of home fries (because it was the closest we were going to get to French fries!) and a small side salad with fat free poppyseed dressing. 11 points plus values.
Do you have any “go to” quick and easy meals when you don’t have much time or don’t really know what you want to eat?
