Mesa de Vida Healthy Cooking Sauces make it possible to make 6 Healthy Freezer Meal Kits in 5 Minutes. I promise, just 5 minutes to prepare.
Planning healthy meals helps us
- eat better
- enjoy more meals at home
- avoid the pizza delivery/takeout/drive thru because there is no other option at home…or you’re exhausted and can’t begin to think of what to cook, let alone actually cook it
- save money versus eating out
- wasting food you don’t have a plan for. How many times have you gone to the store and spent a ton of money only to put it all away, look in the fridge and say “we have nothing to eat!?”
Some people meal plan and meal prep for every meal of every day. Others do it just a few days a week. Many of us want to do it, but don’t know where to start.
I propose starting with 6 of these freezer meal kits per month. That is at least one-to-two days a week that you don’t have to think about what to cook! One-to-two days a week where a healthy, homemade dinner takes just minutes to prepare! In addition to these benefits, these meals also make fabulous leftovers for lunches during the week as well. Just bump up the ingredients to suit your family size. The recipes are very forgiving, so a bit more/less here or there won’t make a difference.
These meals are simple crowd-pleasers, sure to become family favorites. I’m hoping they’ll add a few go-to meals in your wheelhouse. Don’t want potatoes/rice/beans/quinoa? No problem, leave them out and serve with an extra veggie! Want to use beef/lamb/pork/turkey/chicken instead? Go right ahead and play around with the recipes!
Mesa de Vida Healthy Cooking Sauces have all of the flavor (and nutrition) enhancing vegetables, chef-blended spices and herbs, citrus and just a touch of salt so all you have to do is pour the sauces on and trust that you’re about to be enjoying some of the most delicious, restaurant-quality meals in your own home, without compromising your commitment to your health and family.
So, order up your sauce to be delivered to your doorstep. Grab the ingredients on the handy-dandy printable shopping list the next time you’re at the store, your favorite veggies, oh, and a few large zip-top bags. Then let’s get cooking! (Want to be even more of a kitchen rock star? Set your order up to auto-ship you 5-6 sauces per month to help hold you accountable to making these yummy meals every month – AND you save even more money with auto-ship! Keep the staples on the shopping list in your house at all times and you’re set every month!)
I’ve set these recipes up so you can print them out and use them again and again. I hope you enjoy!
