Here are some Easy Meal Solutions for busy moms and families. Included is a recipe for White Chicken Chili.
Like all of us, I am a busy person. I am married, I have three children, and I work from home. My day is spent juggling my schedule, taking my daughter to her activities, running the household, and getting exercise. I am committed to a healthy lifestyle and getting at least 10,000 steps every single day. This daily goal includes weekends, holidays, and in all weather conditions. No matter what, I am going to get my steps in each day.
Daily Exercise Goals
Many days it is a challenge to get all that walking in. I never have a chump of time open that allows me to do all the steps at once so I have to break them up and do shorter walk segments throughout the day. When I have a heavy workload or the family’s schedule is full, I have to squeeze in steps whenever I can get them.
I use a fitness tracker to record my steps. It is how I hold myself accountable. The tracker that I wear on my wrist vibrates once an hour to remind me to get up and get moving.
Meal prep on those very busy days is also a challenge. I’m always seeking out easy meal solutions that are healthier and that my family will like. Instead of eating out or grabbing take out, I come up with quick and easy meals at home. It is important to me that my family eats well, so I plan healthier meals that are not difficult to make.
Easy Meal Solutions
Sam’s Club is where I shop for a lot of the food that my family eats. I go weekly to pick up produce, dairy, frozen foods, and more. Sam’s Club offers me many options for meal planning at a value.
Every day for lunch, I have a bagged salad that I pick up at Sam’s Club. I often add a little something extra to these tasty salads. Sometimes it is seed or fresh fruit and sometimes it is chicken strips. These boneless, skinless strips of chicken are very tasty. They are precooked, so all you have to do is heat them up in a skillet or microwave. They are ready to eat in a few minutes. Chicken Patty Parmesan is another easy meal solution for busy families.
We also use chicken strips in our dinner. We have become big fans of soup. These perfectly seasoned strips of meat are the perfect addition to many of our soups.
White Chicken Chili Recipe
Easiest soup that I make is a white chicken chili because I use a seasoning mix. I put the white chicken chili seasoning mix into a pot, along with water, white beans, a can of diced tomatoes, and grilled chicken strips. This soup is great by itself, but we like to top it with strips of tortilla or sour cream.
While my fitness tracker keeps me on track with my daily exercise, Sam’s Club helps keep me on track with healthy eating.
