How you simplifying your summer?  It’s so hot here in Chicago, so the simpler dinner can be; the happier mom is.  Simply Potatoes does just that for dinner time.  First of all, there is the convenience.  There is no peeling, slicing, dicing or mashing potatoes.  Open the bag and that’s it.   They are better for you.  Their cut potatoes and steamables are all fat free, cholesterol free and 90 calories or less per serving.  Simply Potatoes has a ton of variety.  It is available in a number of mashed and cut varieties, delicious right out of the microwave, off the grill or added to your family’s favorite dish. Click here to see a full list of products.  Lastly, all of the potato products are gluten free (Simply Macaroni & Cheese contains wheat).
Best of all, I’ve tried several of their varieties and they are all good.  I personally love the Steakhouse Potatoes.  They are just soooo good.  I can only highly recommend trying out Simply Potatoes!

#LoveEveryMinute Using @Minute_Rice For Dinner

If you read my personal blog, you will know that I have lost almost 80 lbs over the last year (go me!).  I have made drastic changes in our diet here at my house.  One of those changes are making much healthier dinners!  However, with two kids in different activities, dinner time can be hectic here.  I personally love easy quick meals that don’t take a lot of time or a lot of work.  Last nights dinner is no exception.

One of the easiest things you can add to your meal (and if you read this blog regularly, you will know that we eat rice as a side all the time!) is rice.  It is so easy to make and Minute Rice makes it so you can’t screw it up.  Minute Rice’s White Rice takes all of 5 minutes to make whereas the brown rice takes 10 minutes.

I went with the brown rice last night for dinner, because it has less calories. My kids can’t tell the difference between white rice and brown rice, so I luck out and can serve them either! Our dinner last night consisted of a steamed chicken breast (with a Tuscan Farmhouse Blend with Sea Salt rub), rice, and green beans.

This healthy dinner is something we try and do once a week. My kids finish their plates, and it literally takes less than 30 minutes! The longest part of this dinner is cooking the chicken. If I used my Foreman Grill, the chicken breast would be done in about 8 minutes. If I use my steamer, then we are looking at 20 – 30 minutes.

Minute® Rice is so quick and easy to prepare and is great pantry staple. When meal time seems like a hassle, Minute® Rice is a go-to ingredient your whole family will love and allows you to have more quality time doing what your want with your loved ones.

Leftover rotisserie chicken or veggies from a meal earlier in the week? Minute® Rice can easily be paired with some of your leftover ingredients to make a quick, easy and wholesome meal your whole family will love in just a matter of minutes.

No Name Premium Meats

No Name products are designed for busy families on the go. They are known for bringing delicious meals from freezer to plate in less than 30 minutes with products that can be easily prepared and still offer the family the taste and nutrition they expect.

Now, their steaks are something I have tried in the past. We actually like them so much that we’ve brought them camping with us to make. They are really good and really easy to make. Really, what more do you want from your steak?

We’ve also tried the chicken from the Superb and Simple product line. The products in this line are awesome. Everything is breaded and seasoned for you! They make dinner time so easy (and make it look like you put a lot more time into it than you did!). I love that all I have to do is open the box and then put the chicken in the oven. The rest has been for you, so you just have to come up with a side for these! As a busy mom, I love it! Best of all, the chicken we tried was super yummy too!

No Name has a ton of product offerings, and they definitely have something for everyone! I highly recommend trying them out!
