A healthier you includes squeezing more fruits & vegetables into meals and snacks. No sweat! They’re super convenient when purchased frozen and perfectly-portioned for each meal occasion.
After the Easy Home Meals team ladies were snowed in all weekend from getting slammed with over 30 inches of snow, we were all inspired to share some of the eats and treats we enjoyed in between shoveling snow and napping….
Are you ready to get nutty? Eating nuts as part of a well-balanced diet has become more of a trend in the past few years, with the emergence of flavorful peanut butters and varieties of nuts made portion-friendly for snacking. January is the perfect time to brush up on your nut facts and start adding your favorite varieties of nuts and nut butters to your diet (especially since today is National Peanut Butter Day!) Who doesn’t love a heaping spoonful of creamy or chunky PB?
The holidays are over, and with any luck you have tossed all the leftover sweets that were lingering on your kitchen counter. Long gone are the sweet potato casseroles, the mashed potatoes and the cranberry sauce that were jam-packed in the fridge. It’s January, and it’s time to take back your freezer and fridge!
When the New Year rolls around, the latest food trends emerge in full force. While we’re sure to see some new trends this year, one that doesn’t seem to cool off is hot and spicy food! People are seeking hotter food and eating spicy foods more often. From sweet heat such as honey-chipotle or mango-habanero to nuanced heat from more subtle peppers, the level of spiciness varies, but the presence of heat can be felt throughout many meal occasions and cuisines.
Today is National Milk Day, marking the anniversary of the first day milk was delivered in bottles on January 11, 1878. Not many of us still get milk delivered to our doors, but everyone still loves the classic beverage for its great taste, versatility and wholesome nutrition. In addition to the traditional glass of milk, people today enjoy a range of other varieties and alternatives, such as lactose-free, soy and almond.
Ever wish there were more hours in the day? You’re not alone! Getting a wholesome, satisfying dinner on the table day-in and day-out can be a struggle for many, as busy schedules tend to leave folks short on time. Until they invent a time machine that allows you to complete more tasks in a given day, you can feel confident in putting together daily delicious dinners by learning to cook, prepare food and shop for products that are conveniently packaged and pre-prepared to help alleviate the day’s 24-hour limit.
