Mealtimes can be hectic in The Parenting Patch house. Fortunately, a little planning and some quick hacks make preparing nutritious and delicious meals for my family a little easier!
Hello from Van’s Foods!
We know how busy life can be for Van’s foods fans. Between work, working out, parenting, driving, walking, riding, creating, days get full — fast.
Some meals are easy, and you have got plenty of time to plan, shop, and put together something delicious.
Other times, there is yoga or soccer or Scouts or a late meeting, and you need something fast and easy that you can still feel good about eating.
Which brings us to our gift to you this month — easy, nutritious mealtime hacks from your friends at Van’s. They are all delicious, nutritious, and a cinch to pull together.
Breakfast: To pack a quick protein punch, start with Greek yogurt and pair it with whatever fresh or frozen fruit you have on hand. Add Van’s Soft Baked Whole Grain Granola Clusters, and you have decadent flavor and a hearty, wholesome start to your day. (With taste like that, you would never guess they are gluten-free!)
Snack: Now before you put away those breakfast fixings, tuck that handy resealable bag of granola in your briefcase, purse, or backpack. It will be there for you all day as a soft, chewy pick-me-up whenever the snacking urge strikes. The best part? You can feel great about every whole grain bite.
Dinner: For homemade feel in a fraction of the time, gather the following: Van’s new gluten-free Ultimate Cheddar Penne Pasta, a rotisserie chicken, and the fresh or frozen veggie of your choice.
Warm up your veggies while your pasta is cooking, and take a moment to slice the chicken for serving. Season your veggies with salt and pepper, and serve with the pasta and chicken. (For variety, you can also choose Van’s Rotini & Red Sauce or Creamy Herb & Garlic pasta.)
No time for veggie prep? Grab some pre-cut crudités while you are at the store, and embrace the convenience.
