Because our family consists of two full time working parents, we have very little time to prepare healthy, balanced meals when we get home. It is often tempting to eat out because it is quick and easy (although not healthy or budget-friendly). My husband and I have really tried very hard lately to plan our week of meals in advance. If we know what’s for dinner, we don’t waste time deciding and are much less tempted to grab a take-out menu. Boxed meals are something we tend to grab at the grocery because honestly, they are quick and cheap. But, more often than not, a boxed meal contains more calories than we should really be consuming at dinner.
Thanks to My Blog Spark, I was able to try a new dry dinner kit from Good Earth, the Mediterranean Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta. From the press release:
“With appetizing entrées from Good Earth, dining in is sure to become the new dining out. Enjoy cooking a sophisticated, restaurant-quality meal in the comfort of your own home. Each variety includes vibrant and flavorful sauces along with specialty ingredients like sweet basil, white wine and dried tomatoes. Delicious dinners that allow you to keep a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing taste, Good Earth dry dinner kits are perfect for whipping up a no-fail, five-star cuisine in less than 30 minutes.
100% whole grain, no trans fat, no artificial flavors, no artificial preservatives, no MSG – just add meat and, voila! Dinner is served!”
The dinner kits come in 4 varieties: Mediterranean Chicken with angel hair pasta, Spicy Citrus Glazed Shrimp with angel hair pasta, Herb Crusted Chicken with mushroom risotto and Tuscan Chicken with penne pasta. We prepared the Mediterranean Chicken for my family of four tonight at dinner. It was very easy to fix (the hardest part was cutting the chicken!) and really was finished in 30 minutes. The quantity was perfect for my family size and it was delicious! Even my two year old asked for seconds! The meal did not taste boxed and I was very happy that we managed to serve a successful hot meal for our family in a short amount of time.
Want to try it, too? I have one Good Earth prize package including one Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken dry dinner kit, two sets of bamboo flatware, two bamboo dishes, a bamboo utility board and a 100% recyclable grocery tote for one lucky reader!
