I love cooking but with our busy schedules I don’t always have time to stand in the kitchen for an hour preparing the meal. So sometimes I have quick fix meals that I throw together so we can all sit down and eat together and eat. One of my favorite quick fix meals I use Tyson Grilled chicken strips to create. My Mashed Potato Bowls are quick and easy to make for those nights that I need to get dinner on the table for my very hungry family.
Mashed Potato Bowls Recipe Directions:
I used Betty Crocker Potato Buds and followed the directions on the package to make them in the microwave. Then I cooked the gravy on the stove according to the directions on the package. I’ve never made home made gravy, I always use the McCormick mix. After that, I heated up the frozen Birds Eye SteamFresh corn in the microwave and I also cooked the Tyson Grilled Ready to use frozen chicken in the microwave. After each item is prepared then you put it all together to your personal preference.
To help busy moms like me maintain their busy schedule and desire to provide chick easy low fat meals, Tyson Foods® and registered dietician Tara Miller have teamed up to offer smart living tips using lean, recipe-ready ingredients, like Tyson® Grilled & Ready™ Chicken.
The following are some of Tara’s quick tips over video and in the text, to help women maintain their smart living routine in the months to come:
- Never skip a healthy breakfast — it will surely start you off on the wrong foot! Your brain needs the proper fuel in the morning and only supplying caffeine or nothing at all will not help you be at your best. Instead, try yogurt with sliced almonds and fresh fruit or some whole grain toast with natural peanut butter to start the day right. You’ll notice the positive difference and your waistline will thank you for it.
- To give your metabolism a boost, make sure to stay hydrated. What we often experience as fatigue, irritability and even hunger is actually thirst, so drink up! Sixty-four fluid ounces is the recommended amount for most people, but it should be consumed in low or no-calorie beverages. Try adding fresh slices of orange, cucumber and limes/lemons to a pitcher of water to help encourage more fluid intake.
- Nutrition numbers can be easy to remember, like 5 grams of fiber per serving for a total of 25 grams of fiber per day, 5 small meals per day, 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day and 5 ounces of lean protein per meal. For many with an on-the-go lifestyle, I encourage taking advantage of meal shortcuts like pre-cut veggies, adding frozen fruit to desserts, and using ready-made, perfectly portioned chicken like Grilled & Ready chicken to add to salads or as an entrée.
