Kick Off 2013 with Fresh Meals from Schwan’s

IMG_1411

With the excitement of a new year upon us, there’s no time like now to feed your family some fresh, delicious foods to start out 2013.

Make it easy to stick to your New Year’s Resolutions with a range of comforting and healthy meals such as the Unbreaded Chicken Breast Filets and Mini Beef Pot Roast and sizzling Chicken Marinara & Tortellini and Southwest Fiesta skillet meals. To accompany the meal, add fresh veggies such as Broccoli Florets or a Mediterranean Vegetable Blend, and finish off with guilt-free LiveSmart Ice Cream Sandwiches or Wild Berry Frozen Yogurt.

I know, I know – how do these taste?  Awesome!  We got to try the Mini Beef Pot Roast and the Mediterranean Vegetable Blend.  You would never guess that this came from your freezer.  It was that good!  I also loved how quick and easy it was to make!  Dinner in less than 30 minutes in my house is heaven sent!

Schwan’s was a brand that wasn’t on my radar till now.  However, now that we’ve tried it, I’ll be purchasing more!  It is that good!

 

Chex Mix Muddy Buddies Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Jackie. Congrats!

Chex Mix has heard its fans loud and clear. They are now making every day a holiday by offering the previously limited-edition Chex Mix® Muddy Buddies year-round!

For those of you who have not had the Chex Mix Muddy Buddies, it is a unique combination of Corn Chex cereal, peanut butter, and chocolate, dusted with a powdery sweet coating. It’s the same delicious snack you’ve been making at home for years, now conveniently packaged and sharable for all occasions. Plus, it’s made with 50% less fat than regular potato chips so you can enjoy the taste without the guilt. Until I got the opportunity to try this, I’ve never had it. However, my family loved this so much that my husband hid the container with the Muddy Buddies in it on the kids! They are soooo yummy!

Since we loved this so much, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get a Chex Mix Muddy Buddies gift pack that includes a bag of Chex Mix Muddy Buddies, an airtight sealed container, a snacking bowl, and a magnetic clip. Here’s what you need to do:

The Chocolate Therapist

For those of you who don’t know, I love chocolate.  I often like to post about chocolate.  I recently found out that chocolate is actually good for me.  Did you know . . . .

6 squares of dark organic chocolate taken at one time with a glass of red wine monthly helps with anti wrinkle assistance or

4 squares of organic milk chocolate 4-5 times a week helps with osteoporosis or

4 squares of dark organic chocolate helps with memory loss?

To quote the site:

The Chocolate Therapist also includes a brief history of chocolate, instructions on “how to eat chocolate properly,” chocolate recipes, an appendix with information on the glycemic index and weight loss, websites on where to find healthy chocolate, sugar-free chocolate, Gelt chocolate, international chocolates and much more. By the time you’ve finished reading, you’ll be happier, healthier and eating chocolate guilt free every day.

Now, this makes the perfect Christmas gift for any chocolate lover you know (including yourself), because not only do you get The Chocolate Therapist Book, but you get the chocolate too (and the chocolate is excellent)!  Who can resist that?  I love the next time someone asks why I am eating chocolate, I can show them the studies showing how good it is for me and hopefully whip out some of the chocolate trivia I have learned (like did you know that the higher quality of chocolate, the louder it snaps when you break it?).
