Summer is here and my summer bod is just not ready! I think I said that last year too! This year my excuse is having a baby just 2 months ago. But, excuses are just that, excuses. Time to get my butt into gear and eat smart this summer.
One thing that I could eat every single day of my life…is salads. I know, I know, you think that’s weird. But, it is so true! When I go out to restaurants I love to order their signature salads and even create new blends at home. One of my first jobs was at a steakhouse and my favorite thing to order from there…was the salad! It was even the one food item I craved during my first pregnancy. Recently, I partnered with Eat Smart to help shake up my salad routine.
All Eat Smart products will be free from high fructose corn syrup, artificial preservatives, hydrogenated fats, as well as artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners by the end of next year. How awesome is that?
How many times have you tried to read ingredients and gotten frustrated that you don’t recognize what you’re eating? Eat Smart’s easy-to-understand labels will list recognizable ingredients that consumers can feel good about putting in their bodies and serving to their families.
As a stay at home mom and a work from home full time blogger, I often skip meals. Mainly, because I don’t feel like taking the time to make myself a meal. These chef-inspired salad kits offer perfect healthy eating options that are easy to integrate into busy lives. I always meal prep chicken for the week. This is perfect to throw on top of the salads for a boost of protein if I chose to have this as a meal. Other protein options I use for myself and my tiny tot are beans, we love garbanzo beans on top of salads. Without the proteins these kits are easily mixed and served alongside dinner or lunch.
You know you’re doing something right as a mom when your child requests salads with dinner. I am really lucky that my daughter loves them. Sometimes she doesn’t like dressings on her salads, it is perfect that the Eat Smart kits have the dressing separate, I am able to accommodate her palate..aka ranch of course.
The Salad Shake Ups Avocado Ranch blend is a crunchy blend of cabbages and vegetables, crispy toppings, and a creamy avocado ranch dressing, is my FAVE! They have a bunch of other mixes and flavor that I plan on stocking up on this summer. What salad mixes have you tried and you’re loving?
The shake ups are compact enough that I can toss them into my diaper bag without a problem. They have everything needed within the package, including the fork. How convenient is that?!
